Thank you sweet friends for such kind words on my last post of Magpie...I love you all for loving our girl so!!!❤️❤️❤️
I am currently sanding our island getting ready to paint it 🙈 I love the green, and I want to stay with green. Just a bit softer and a bit lighter. This is BM Great Barrington Green, with an antiquing wax applied over it. I also do not love the wax anymore...when I have to wipe off the island around the dishwasher and trash drawer (often), it has taken off the wax. So the wax is not so practical on an island...I guess I didn’t think that through 5 years ago when I did it😆
So if you have a favorite green...softer, gray-green, please share in the comments!
My favorite sample so far is BM Rolling Hills. Just still not 100% sure.....

Thank you so much for all the messages and prayers. I'm still at my parent's house. We just feel shocked and jarred by the absence of my dad's presence. ☹️ A few more days, until his memorial service. ❤️
I wanted to show you this piece my dad refinished that now sits in my living room. It's one of my favorites: an old Luzianne Chicory coffee crate.
I was so thrilled my mom reminded me of a photo of my dad in his workshop a few years ago. It's of him working on an antique pine frame for my bathroom mirror. Posting in stories. 😊
Can we talk about these gorgeous prints for a second! I had always been a fan of giant photos of kiddos and was just waiting for Carter to get here so we could get some printed up for our room! These pics are our babies both at 3 days old and I couldn’t be more in love! .
Tips for printing and framing:
I ALWAYS get my framed prints done through @nationsphotolab . I’ve done comparison prints from them, Costco & Target and the color quality just doesn’t compare! It’s the closest you can get to the digital file!
Also nationsphotolab will frame for you but it’s pricey. I found these big frames at homegoods for a quarter of the price! .
Hope everyone’s having a wonderful Saturday! What are y’all up to this weekend We’re at home doing tons of house + yard work 🤪
Do you have any collections that deserve to be displayed We love how this homeowner turned these dishes into a work of art! Shop our French Country book via profile link! https://bit.ly/2AdSL0A (📸: Colleen Duffley) #thecottagejournal #frenchstyle #frenchcountry
My addiction continues, and will remain unsatisfied I expect! Love these dark spaces. Moody, ancient, peaceful and so rich in colour and texture. It is all of this, and the imperfection that years of use have added that I enjoy the most. Definitely will be doing a book. This particular church is a highlight, in fact the interior is pretty much out of control as far as decorative elements are concerned! More than one visit required to discover it's secrets.
