 I’m swooning over the latest issue of Pottery Barn!

They have done a fabulous job of showcases all the HOT shades of Indigo Blue for the upcoming season! The blues are perfectly paired with my favorite neutrals as well!

I love, love, love this bed….but sadly I fear my darling Shih Poo would lift his leg on it!

Am I the only one that has an annoying, but so sweet and cute, male dog that must do this?!? Why?!?

I’m feeling like breaking in to some Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint® and some French Linen Chalk Paint® very soon!

I’ll be sure to share with you my rendition of Indigo Blues and Neutral Linens on some furniture very soon!

31 Days of ASCP, Day 28….Holiday Gifts!

Yes, it is a bit nuts that I had shorts and a short sleeve shirt on today while I oohed and ahhed over the latest over the top Christmas tree put up in Total Bliss!  It has always been a bit of a pet peeve of mine to even think red until the candy has been handed out.  But, now that I’m in the world of retail I totally get it!  You gotta be ready.  It takes planning and time and it is better to be on top of the game then left behind.  
Of course Trish whipped up a fabulous Annie Sloan Gift Box Set today!
Did you expect anything less from her?
So, here it is, the perfect gift for someone special….1 can of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, 1 clear wax, 1 dark wax a paint brush and a roll of cheese cloth!  Everything a gal (or dude!) needs to get started.  You can customize each box to contain whatever you would like.  
You can even include a Hueology Gift Certificate to be used on one of our workshops and/or furniture!

Here is a sneak peak of a mirror that just went in the shop today.  It is painted French Linen over Duck Egg and distressed and waxed!  
Would you like to receive the gift of ASCP for Christmas? 

Put it on your wish list!

31 Days of ASCP, Day 20… Smitten with French Linen

Have you gotten a chance to use the new color French Linen?
It should be a staple in your ASCP pallet!  We are loving the balance between grey and khaki.  We’ve enjoyed using it alone and pairing it with Graphite…..the possibilities are endless.  Loving Annie’s idea to pair this with Emperor’s Silk!  Thinking this combo might show up in our Workshop this Sunday!

Here we used just one thin coat of French Linen on an oak chair.  It gave the chair a great color, yet the richness of the grain of the oak still shows through!
This chair is now for sale at Total Bliss in Summerfield!
