I'm still here! New Orleans and Other News

It has definitely been WAY too long since I did a blog posting. Things have been so wonderfully busy over the last several months and I couldn't ask for more. In March, I traveled to New Orleans to kick off Annie Sloan's North American tour. I had the time of my life. New Orleans is definitely a place I will visit again. 

I learned so many wonderful things from Annie about color theory, and about all the new fun stuff we have coming! Fabrics, fragrance diffusers and brushes (which are in stock now!). She really is as wonderful as people say she is. I never thought she would even know who I was, but just from small conversations through Facebook, she knew me by name and even associated me with Old Glory General Store. It felt like I was meeting a celebrity, but after a few short days, she was like an old friend. 

I took a thousand pictures, but here are just a few of how I will remember New Orleans.

 Annie Sloan Unfolded threw us a wonderful cocktail party at a gorgeous mansion. Look at the grounds!

The most wonderful, talented group of people I have ever met. I'm in there somewhere! 

 A little Greek Blue anyone?

Ok, so now for some current events! This Saturday, June 1st, I will be at the Corona Antiques and Collectibles Faire. It is located at the Heritage Park, 510 West Foothill Parkway, Corona, CA, 92882. I will be there with some great furniture pieces and of course Chalk Paint™ decorative paints. 

There will be over 60 vendors and admission is free! You don't want to miss it!

Well, that is all for now. I will be sure to post some pictures of the furniture in the next few days, and there will be a giveaway coming! So stay tuned for that as well!
