Around the Shop

We have a new product in the shop!
I am so excited to announce that 
Truly Tattered now has Annie Sloan Chalk Paint
on the shelves! 

This line of paint is truly amazing and the colors 
are just perfect for the 
French shabby look we all want. 
It is also Magic! Yes Magic! 
You do not need to do any prep on most surfaces
and sanding is a breeze because the paint 

And all the colors can be mixed for a custom one of a kind shade 
that only you will have!
Easy to use, but workshops will be scheduled if you want 
to get fancy! 
This paint was born in the UK by Annie Sloan, 
Author of many books on the subject of design
and decorative painting but is just the past year
getting to be known here in the USA. 
I will be painting some pieces in the shop as soon as I get the first can open!
(I was going to paint yesterday but was too busy selling this paint!)
Come in and see it in person. 
More information and pictures to follow soon. 
Have a great day!

Flea Market Sunday

I love Flea Market Sunday!
Jamestown Village where our shop is located
has a flea market in the parking lot every 4th Sunday of the month. 
It is hosted by my dear friends at Whimsy.
(the ones that got me to start the shop)
My intention is to take tons of pictures each and every time but
have really not done well so far. 
Today I am going to share some pictures of great flea markets that 
I have been to or would like to go to. 
Next time there will be great pics of our market in Tustin!

This is a cute sign.....

This is my Friend Blanca's space at the old Paris to the Moon 
Flea Market. Those were great shows.

So these are a few pictures I have taken in the past but now 
on to the future. Now that I am back to blogging I need to 
have my camera locked and loaded each and every time I go out. 
I hope to see you all at the Flea this weekend

New Lampshade

I downloaded some graphics from the Graphic Fairy
 website and attached to a wire shade adding lace and crystal pendants. Last week I did the one below. This is what happens when you need a shade and don't have the money or time to shop!!!!

I found the base at an estate sale and just loved it. Then a friend of mine brought me some lampshades that she did not need and were a little more tattered than is allowed in our shop!
I was going through my sheet music and loved the graphics on the fronts of the books and decided to
marry the two together! Adding the pattern paper ruffle was
just the finishing touch it needed!

What have you created that comes from necessity and then you fall in love with?
Send me a picture we would love to see it!
After all if we don't appreciate what we do who will!
