A Box, A Beach and Au Revoir


I’ve been working on a few items for my etsy shop all in my fav new color – robin’s egg blue – can’t get enough of it! I picked up a gorgeous wood cigar box at a yard sale last summer and decided to give it a French-inspired touch.

I also decided to hand paint an old light-switch cover. It just needed a very simple touch to turn it into a beachy accessory (now I just need the beach house to go with it!)

I’m still working on another box -- in robin's egg blue and black -- a little departure for me from my shabby chic look…stay tuned for that.

This will probably be my last post for a few days as my youngest son and I are off to Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. I’m sure I’ll have a few adventures to write about when I get back (and of course, some cool pics to share). So, au revoir for now…I’m headed to infinity and beyond….

Love the robin's egg blue, especially on the light switch cover.

In re: email subscribers I went to my feedburner account and poked around in there until I found something about subscribing by email. It was all very random to find it, but I bet if you search in the blogger help files, or even google for instructions, you'll find lots of resources with detailed step-by-steps!
