A couple of sisters Pickin and SMITTEN

My My I still cannot get over how excited and happy I have been since I went with my sister to Old Downtown Mckinney to "Smitten" to pick up my chalk paint.......Life has not been the same since.  I no longer have tons of unfinished pieces now I have quite a few "finished pieces"!

Mckinney, Texas is a charming town full of Antique stores, decor stores, Restaraunts.  Plenty for My lil Sis and Me to do.  My partner lil miss Abbigail of course went along, this was a big anticipated moment for our business!  Pardon the pics as they were taken by phone........I need,want and must have a camera......

My heart started fluttering walking up to the store the much antipated moment I had been waiting for every since reading about AS ChalkPaint on Miss Mustardseed (thanks so much for sharing!)

The shop is really neat in and of itself but I belined straight to the AS Chalk Paint display!

Oh my how is a girl to chose???????? Lady Butterbug is the person whom is the distributor
for this Mckinney Texas store, she also has a website and sells online to ship flat rate!  I just like Mckinney
though I think I will drive next week to get more!

My Lil Miss Abby sharing the moment with me, we left with our favorite picks, wax, brush and a book!
We stopped and ate the best Italian food I have had in awhile, at Sauce. My Sister Wendy and I (Uh these pickin sisters don't do make up hair and nails in 107 degree's!! lol)
My 7 year old Abby took the picture

I painted this turn of the century repurposed piece with Aubusson
right on old weather wood I loved the finish! I really had a hard time taking this one to the booth
I even called hubby and said I don't know where to put it but I love it at least I can go visit for a bit. Not, this sold within two hours of drop off.....Thanks to my awesome customer if you are reading! I hope you love it as much as I did!

I like Aubusson so Well that I painted this piece that had been painted 2 times previously
(by me........)  I love how all the layers show through
Can you tell this is Also a little Miss Mustardseed Inspired? I used the Graphite on the chalkboard as I was too lazy to get out my regular chalkboard paint, I did use three coats to cover this mirror. 

I have painted so many things this with the 8 colors I selected, each was used  at least 2 times so far and I am out  of old white and graphite.........next week I will be posting them throughout next week as well as going and getting some more paint!.  Now I also want to try Milk paint!

Have a wonderful Friday all
