Prettiest chair in the world, gilding and french fabrics!

 In my shop I have the prettiest chair in the world.
 Its an aqua green needlepoint chair in a very pretty chair frame!
 This chair doesn't need a paint job~its is straight up gorgeous
 and in near perfect condition.  The pretty legs have cute caster wheels.
It fit in the store so nicely~then I noticed a trend....
 I guess I love pink and aqua green~
 Any kind of pink and green will do for my taste~
 Like the peachy pinks and the celery greens~
 All the better when they are mixed in with petal pinks and aqua greens too~
 Pinks and greens are so fresh~
you see this combination in rose bushes and flowers all the time.
 More pinks and aquas~just love it. Anyway I got a nice response
 on the gilding waxes yesterday.
I had a big response in the store today too!~ 
I was absolutely clobbered with customers today,
and they were all there for my Annie Sloan™ supplies!
 So to answer about the gilding waxes, yes I will be carrying
 them and shipping them as well.  I hope to get them
 in soon and will put them up on
as well as announce it on the blog.
 The other thing that is quite exciting to me is the Annie Sloan™ 
exclusive french fabric line.
All made in France or Belgium~I will be highlighting the 
patterns and colors soon on the blog.
Of course I will be offering custom pillows and draperies to my shoppers~
but that's not all on the horizon for this "little store that could"...
.I will be sharing my big news next week with you right here!



  1. Your store looks lovely ! I love those colors too !

  2. Blog hopping this evening and came by for a visit! Everything looks wonderful and good to see that your shop is up and running...

  3. Oh, that chair is so sweet! But knowing me I would paint it white. The cool thing is you can leave that to the customer. Love the fabric! I love your color choices--I am with you. I love aqua and pink. I have been worried I may have to change my blog name to "For the Love of Aqua and Pink" LOL

  4. I agree, the combination of blue and brown on that chair are scrumptious. I like to use those colors in paintings too, it's a wonderful combination... The Annie Sloan fabric swatch in the photo with your gilded squares looks like something i would LOVE.... and what in the world new thing are you up to now!!??


  5. Amy ~ love that chair and I'm so happy to hear that your store is doing so well!

  6. Amy, I love yiur blog and your taste in colors. It is so nice that once again pink and green are showing up out in the world. For so long it seemed that everything was Tuscan. Pretty, but definitely not my taste. I actually had to buy the drapes for our bedroom from Pottery Barn Kids to get pink silk a few years ago. The chair would match the carpet in my house perfectly. If I ever get to your side of the states I am coming by for a visit. Dawna

  7. Oh how I love visiting your store, Amy --- even though it's virtually! :) I'm thrilled to hear that you're going to be carrying the gilding wax. I'll be ordering some for sure...since I'm now bringing a little Florentine flavor into Heaven's Walk. ♥
