Hello Yellow!

Hello all!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  We took a short break from creating things for the Barn Show to go to my hometown to do a little shopping and a little visiting. A few weeks (or months, I am not sure) I mentioned adding a new color to my favorite greys and blues that I always lean towards in painting furniture.  And, I have since painted the inside of a buffet this wonderful color, but I hadn't found the right piece to paint the exterior this cheerful shade until now.... it was inspired by these flowers that I am currently obsessed with...

I took that inspiration and toned it down a little to remind me of some of my favorite tweed-y suitcases.... then I asked a dear friend who is a lover of this shade to help me name her...

Meet Daisy!  I think that the pop of yellow is the perfect accent to so many spaces.  And, it also goes well with another one of my favorite things....

Vintage maps!  These are from a vintage atlas that the Mr. found recently.  Daisy made her way over to Rebecca's last week.  I did a little bloggy tour of her shop last year here. Rebecca has been carrying some of my smaller handmade items for about a year now and recently she asked me to bring in some furniture as well.  I was thrilled!  I adore her shop, so I was flattered that she wanted to carry a few of my pieces.  I am working on another piece to go there later this week and hope to get a few more finished after the Barn Show for her as well.

This week we are working on more stuff for the Barn Show... maybe I will give you a sneak peek of a few of the things that will be making the trip.  And, we are also finishing getting Hazel spiffed up to make the trip as well.  Right now though, I have a date with some dishes and then with the hyena to go pick out some library books (ie play with the giant train table there.)

bye for now!
