Painting and Baby (puppy) Sitting

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Sister Sue and her hubby took a couple of days off and Auntie (me) agreed to take care of Ozzie....all at the same time I was going to try to paint an amazing sideboard I have wanted to tackle....Glad to say that Ozzie was a precious boy and cooperated nicely throughout the day....he even helped me!  He agreed to pose pretty for me when I finished the piece!


He wasn't quite sure what he should do, then he got it!
For a 9 week old puppy, he is smart, happy and willing to entertain himself nicely....I was happy too, it allowed me to get some work done, good dog!
This piece was so much fun to do!!!!
I added a gorgeous stencil motif to add some charm...

Beautiful side detailing....fabulous legs! 
So smooth and lovely!

The top has been left natural, stained and varnished......
She will be posted on line for sale maybe tonight or tomorrow...
OOPS....Gotta go, Ozzie is AWAKE!!!!

So Pretty in Linen!

Monday, October 10, 2011

We have just finished two new pieces to add to our furniture selection, we are happy with the outcome!
Hmmmm.... I am toying with the idea that this bergere may need to stenciled.....      
what do you think?


This cute 1940s sleigh style bed lent itself to pretty rose appliques, linen and a darling ruffle...

Our Progress Report....

Friday, October 7, 2011

After the great show we had in September the need to restock our website with great new pieces is pressing!  Working hard every day is not new to us, but WOW! our progress has not been what it usually is!  WHY? you ask.....(drum roll please......)  *THIS* is WHY!.....Enter Oswald, AKA Ozzie:

Ozzie, in his 9 week splendor, such a good boy, but WOW! puppies are hard work!

We lost our Molly, Sue's 12 year old yellow lab in June.  It certainly took its toll on us, our workroom needs canine companionship!  Life is never the same for us without it.  (We miss you Molly!)  So in between  puppy play and kisses with a few potty breaks thrown in we ARE getting the work done!  A few new pieces will be going on line this afternoon!
In the meantime, Caleb is waiting patiently to drive me to the next auction (his favorite thing in the world, he LOVES auctions!)
Stay tuned!.......

(Buddies Forever!) Caleb's new BFF
