Mimi Tote Bag constructed from scraps of vintage grain sacks
Or a Bemis Vintage Grain Sack pillow
Here are the rules... You just have to post a name you like... This isn't a random giveaway. I will (with the Mr's help) choose a name. I won't show the piece... I want to see what name I think fits her best. I will tell you that she is a china cabinet. And she is a pale grey (surprise, surprise.) And, I have a leaning towards vintage-y sounding names. And, it can't be a name that I have already used. Here is a link to some names that I have used... but it isn't a complete list. So, if you choose a one that I have used, I will comment back within the comment section and let you know. Please also check and make sure no one before you suggested the same name. And, only one entry. So give me your best! I need the name by Friday morning, so this will be a quick little giveaway. I will announce the winner on Monday with a photo of the piece.
I want to take this time right now at to tell you how grateful I am for all of your encouraging comments and every bit of your support. I love doing what I am doing now. I have been painting furniture for awhile... since I was in high school ( a long, long time ago.) I am sure my mother has one of my first pieces still... with layers (hand painted sunflowers under crackle paint under whatever it is now... gasp... crackle paint!) I don't do this as a hobby. It is a passion of mine. Some people paint on canvas, I paint furniture. It isn't something that the Mr. likes for me to do to get me out of his hair. He supports me every step of the way. I don't say this to act like I invented painting furniture or that I have been doing this longer than anyone else, but to let you know how extremely blessed I feel to be doing what I love, finally. I know that this painted furniture trend may not last forever. And, that I may not be able to make money at it forever. I would be painting furniture regardless of me selling it. But, then we would probably be on hoarders. So thank you and now, give my piece a name!
bye for now!
