From the Studio, a June Peek...
I had a resounding request for more gift sets with my original silk-screened designed towels; each is packaged with a cookie cutter and wrapped in bakers twine.  I always have them around Christmas as its an easy and functional gift, but I clearly overlooked wedding season as one bride came in to purchase for her bridesmaids.  Your customers will tell you everything you need to know!  So voila, two styles to choose from; the very popular Pump up the Jam towel and a new blue/brown towel, I'm crazy about for the moment, screened with a fleur de lis and paired with chocolate colored fleur de lis cookie cutter.
And here are a few painted pieces slowly coming out of my studio; the little shelf is old, which ironically I cleaned, repainted and stained to look old!  I do have to say the Howard's Wax we carry in Walnut makes the best tabacco-stained look!  It's a neat piece with a plate groove on each shelf; hard to find these days.  The stool is just precious; its a fairly new solid wood piece, a coat of paint and stain totally changed the look and feel to a more rustic and primitive item.
And finally we can reveal a long awaited addition to our very own chalk paint line; its a true red we've named after our town and state fruit, Ponchatoula Strawberry.  I also jazzed up the labels, what do you think? 

Hard to believe June is half way over and Summer begins officially next week (tho its pretty hot already!)  If you can believe it, last week I began ordering for Christmas - always a challenge to stay ahead in retail and be present in the moment of the actual season.  This weekend tho, I plan to find space to savor fireflies, a good book, and maybe a cat nap (hello summer!)
