I love spending time with creative friends.................and Penny of
The Comforts of Home is one of the best.
Above are some of the beautiful pieces she has painted using Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint. They are for sale in her booth at Needful Things Antiques Mall in Hendersonville, NC.
You can also see some of her signature mosaic pieces on the chest....the birdhouse is magnificent.
Now this French settee, recently restored - like in stripped naked - and graciously re-painted and upholstered in linen, is Penny's fait accompli............it is perfect and would be coming home with me if only I had space to place it in the cottage. Whereas............that lovely nesting set of tables will not only find a spot to nestle comfortably at home, I'm even able to get them in the car to take them back to Raleigh!
Another treasure I decided needed to come home with me was this unique lazy Susan for my farm table. Penny refinished it and added the writing - I'll find plenty of use for this piece and it will go perfectly with my French dough bowl.
We'll be heading home later today, but first I need to get to bed for a few hours sleep.......then later I'll have time to tell you more about meeting for lunch with this Penny, the other Penny, and a certain 'Blondie'
whom many of you know!
