An amazing day with Annie Sloan

I had the privilege to go to Leesburg, Va to meet Annie Sloan

Annie took the time to autograph and take our picture with her. Her kind warm spirit just makes ya feel right at home. Thanks Annie!

What a special treat to spend the day at Annie's work shop! I have been painting some pieces here and there with her paint but now that I have been to the work shop...... I will be using it for most of my pieces. She taught us how to layer and mix paint colors and the sky is the limit with color. Annie has a wealth of information when is comes to paint techniques and color and I can't wait to try them . Most of my pieces for my Spring Extravaganza in June will be with Annie's Chalk Paint.

Here's a real treat. I got to meet @Miss Mustard Seed. Love Love her blog and not many days go by that I don't read her blog. She's a ball of energy with way too much talent for one person to have. No fair..... I get inspired and motivated each time I read her blog. You will most certainly want to check her out if you haven't already.

Another Special treat was to meet Janet from @Empty Nest. I enjoy reading her blog and seeing her talent come out on her furniture and her sewing skills. She even let me interrupt her lunch for a picture. Thanks Janet!

One of the favorites part of my day was to ride the 2.5 hours in my truck with this sweet and talented gal Florence...... from @Savannah's House. I was invited as her guest for the day and I am honored and blessed that she asked me to go along. Thanks Flo!

Flo and her partner Suzy have been vendors at all my shows and events and they will be here in June as well. These gals are the best of the best with all the talent between them. We are also in the same Antique Mall together. Oxford Odds and Ends in Oxford, Pa. Come visit us there.
