Hello Dear Friends,
Welcome to all the new followers! I appreciate all of you so very much. Not because it strokes my ego or makes this blog special but because at least 201 individuals from around the world can share in something fun. Friendships are born and a better understanding of different cultures can be gained.
I will be posting a giveaway soon to celebrate the 200 followers milestone...I am toying with an idea, so please bear with me.
Meanwhile, as Autumn approaches, so do my thoughts and whims change with the Seasons.
I very much love Shabby, Romantic and French Styles but so do I have a great love of Country, kitschy, Vintage and Primitive styles...in fact, at times I've tried to combine facets of many of those styles... LOL, not very successfully but it's fun to try.
Here are some Country Primitive Cupboards I've been working on (please ignore that shiny, plastic-y looking pumpkin on top of the cupboard! It is most definitely going to get a matte varnish as I didn't realize how shiny it was till I saw the photo):
As I write this, the realization hits that I have actually shared very little of myself on this blog. Perhaps a bit here and there but not much. Perhaps you aren't interested in me, but just in photos, miniatures or tutorials or for whatever reason you visit, please know that you are welcome and valued :)
As for comments, I have been totally remiss in responding to them via the comments blocks. From now on, I will make notes of questions or comments that need replies include them as a post. Hope that made sense. I do read each and every comment and translate them when they are in a language I don't understand.
One question that was recently asked, is how/what do I use to rust and age things.
I use Ink...scrapbooking, stamping ink.
I always use a sealer over the top of the ink. I don't know if that is necessary but I do it.
