Some people buy shoes. I buy petrified wood! March 19, 2018

Greetings, dear lovely!,

As a paint shipment, from Fusion Mineral Paint was being unpacked last week, I thought to myself, I have friends, with beautiful shoes, and I have new paint!  

And then, when the petrified wood arrived, I thought the same thing!

I’m just kidding!  I truly love what I do! There are so many choices, at this stage of life and I’m just blessed to do what I love!

Monday’s for me, are like your Sunday’s.  It’s often a “catch up” day.  Today, after running errands, I got ready for a birthday celebration, for two of my Shop Sisters, Jill and Pat.  We had a great evening, filled with lots of laughs!  I truly love these women!

We finished the evening with a roudy game of bingo! I purged my gift closet, filled with white elephant treasures and things still lingering, from gifts of yesteryear, that became the prize booty!  Lucky winners!  Especially Cassie, who won the vibrating head massager!

Back to reality, we have restocked our reproduction bread boards.  There’s lots to choose from. These are not designed to be used as cutting boards.  They mimic the European bread boards, made of dense oak…that could be used as cutting boards.

But our repro bread boards make awesome serving pieces, for charcuterie serving boards.  Think sliced salamis, cheeses, grapes, almonds, walnuts, olives, etc.!  The boards make great statement pieces, on your kitchen island, or serving table!

This new rolling serving cart, would be great for a caterer, or a cooking enthusiast, to display serving pieces!  I had one a few years ago and when I saw this one, I said, yes please!

Our Fusion Mineral Paint is on the shelf!  Come on in and see the beautiful shades available!  Our stock is not quite complete, but I’d say we’re about 80%+ there!

We’d love for you to try Fusion Mineral Paint.  Try it for free! Just bring in an old can of dried out, mucky chalk based paint and we’ll give you a Fusion sample size ($6.99 value), for Free!

Let me introduce you to Sally!  Sally is a creative spirit! She loves to watercolor!…and she loves teaching watercolor, even more!   We’d like Sally to join our team and need you to tell me…

Are you interested in a 2 1/2 hour class, for $20, on a weekly basis?

I really need your feedback.  It’s not a commitment, just a vote, one way or another.  If you are interested, please tell me what time of the week works best for you!

We’ll, that’s  it for now. Stop in soon and say hi!

    Why does your internet search claim that you don’t buy shoes , you buy petrified wood if you really don’t?

      One time, I purchased refined petrified wood slabs on pedestals, used for decorative purposes. Since then I have probably gotten calls or emails From 20 people, trying to sell me petrified wood.
