Town and Country Living Blog Shout out!

Isn't it just too exciting when you receive a shout out on someone's blog?!  It's always a surprise, which I love surprises!, and reassurance that not only you love something you have created, but another wonderfully creative person loves it equally as well!

I  must admit, Jennifer, of Town and Country Living Blog is SO sweet, and...I can't wait to meet her!  We have chatted back and forth in blog land and on Facebook several times, but what's so exciting for me is Jennifer has visited my store a hand full of times...and I've NEVER been there when she has popped in!  UGH!  How does this happen?  It seems like I'm there so much, but then I hear from many of you that "I just missed you!" or "Wednesday must be your day off."  or worse yet...."I didn't know you were CLOSED on Tuesdays!" my heart breaks!

It truly is important for me to meet you.  Hearing your stories of finding great treasure, learning about your Chalk Paint® adventures, and creating friendships I wouldn't have otherwise had are just a few of my joys in having Carter's Cottage.  

As a result of reading some of your "I just missed you" stories I receive, I thought I would post a tentative schedule of the shop hours and days you would be most likely to find me there.  Please click on the Contact link for more info :)

Back to my SHOUT OUT .

Here is a picture Jennifer took of a mirror I painted and she recently purchased from Carter's Cottage.    Using Old White and Scandinavian Pink, I created this lovely ballerina pink color.  As my creativity grows, the more often I use custom colors.  I seem to be turning into a Mix-olo-gist of Chalk Paint® lol~  
The recipe for this color is:
1 Part Scandinavian Pink 
5 Parts Old White
After painting, I used  clear wax mixed into a glaze with Sliver Gilt cream.

In the shop, we have a wall of mirrors.  Most of them are old, some painted with Chalk Paint® while others are beautiful in their as found state.  Cracks, chips, layers of painted goodness adorn some of them while others are gilted and the mirror is ghosted.   I truly love them all and love how Jennifer has created a wall in her home of mirrors.  I hope you take a moment to enjoy some of Jennifer's posts!  She's so talented and creative~ such an inspiration for me!
