Imperfect Hearts, New Annie Sloan Color, Questionable Craig’s List Purchase & My New Veranda Find

It’s been such a fun-packed week, so far, that I haven’t even let the rain and grey skies bring me down.

First of all, I always love a craft experiment project, so, I’ve had fun making little heart pillows for Veranda’s Valentine’s Day Party, this Sunday, 10:30 till 5:30. Due to some other commitments, I won’t be there until about 1:30, but don’t let that stop you from having a glass of champagne without me!

These are some of my little heart pillows. The first batch was pretty hard to identify, so I call them my “Imperfect Hearts”! It turns out that they looked a lot more like hearts, when I stitched the pillows on the outside, with the stitching visible. I made about 25 hearts, using the stuffing I had from an old pillow I was no longer planning to use. the fabric was left over from other projects, so this was certainly affordable! Just leave a 2″ space, to stuff the heart and then, finish closing the seam.

Then, I found a great deal on some silver plate flat wear in Craig’s List. Just as the sun went down, I entered an apartment complex to make the purchase. I considered arming myself with pepper spray, but decided to just leave it in the car. I wasn’t going to go in to the apartment but that plan wet out the window too. Just as I was leaving, I asked the young hoodlum man what he did for a living and he said he was a carpet cleaner. Just left me wondering if the silver had belonged to someone with clean carpets!?

Then last night, Mr. Wonderful hung my new cabinet from Veranda, in my daughter’s room. Isn’t it sweet?

I quickly found some little mini doo-da’s to put inside! I’m sure my daughter will be thrilled! Well, maybe not, but she’s hardly here, so my vote wins!

Then, and remember, it’s still only Tuesday afternoon as I write this, Tami, the regional stockist for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, stops by Veranda and brings me the brand new ASCP color, called Antoinette! It’s their beautiful new pink, that I can’t wait to try!

Follow the link above to her site. See how she can paint anything that’s standing still! The floors I saw on her site are amazing. I want them!

Well, there you have “life as I know it”, here at the Treasured Home.

I’ll be slaving away at Veranda, on Thursday, so if you’re in the ‘hood, stop on by!

Cheers,
Barbara
