Sorry I didn’t write yesterday. I was leading a Bible study in the morning which was amazing and then I had a decorating consultation right after lunch…then my mom came, and I was busting my tail to get a couple of pieces of furniture finished.
Did I tell you I’m going to start selling my furniture in a super fun new store? Jennie from Jennie Leigh Design, who did the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Giveaway here has opened a store and I’m so excited about it! That is if I can stop selling my creations out of my garage on accident before I even have a chance to take them to the store…or to take proper photographs of them.
Here’s one I sold the other day. I named her Emiline. Seriously I had her sitting in the garage finished and a friend came by to borrow some camping equipment from the Hubs and his wife fell in love with Emiline. I don’t blame her. I was in love too, but I don’t have enough room in my house for all of my love affairs, so Emiline was never meant to stay. And now, Emiline lives with Christi. I named her Emiline because I think that’s a pretty name…and this girl has a body…heavy on the top and skinny pretty legs. I probably should have named her Jessica Rabbit. (You’ll have to excuse the awful garage photos…I told you, I sold her before I had time to take proper pictures.)
SO then I had another piece that I just finished yesterday. I posted a picture of the playful and bright Tilly last night on my facebook and have already had serious inquiries. I’m going to have to keep these gals all secrets until I can get them to Jennie’s or else I’m never going to get anything over there! Tilly is FAB-u-lous! Seriously…i was just lamenting that I can’t keep her too. But alas…not to be friends, not to be. Get a load of this broad!
I’ve got one more that I’m hoping to get churned out today. She’s named Jane because even though this isn’t the kind of desk that I think Jane Austen would have written at, it’s pretty and I am obsessed with Jane Austen. She’s going to be gray with cream on the inside. Oh lands….I really wish I could keep this one too. She’s a super curvy gal who carries her weight all over….love that…I know how you feel Jane! So stay tuned…Jane will be showing off her new bodywork soon enough!
Have a great day friends!
(And yes, I know…my garage is a disaster!)
I thought since I’ve been working my fingers to the bone, I’d show these gals off a few places, so I’m linking up at Miss Mustard Seed’s Furniture Feature Friday party, The Shabby Nest Friday linky party, and Remodelaholic too…because for once I actually have something done in time for it!
