I'm so excited, my second giveaway,  Jessica won the last one, you can be the next one. Please go to, her button is on my side list, Angie is promoting it on her great blog, THANK YOU ANGIE.  She has all the rules and dates, hope we have a wonderful winner. The wreaths are made in my home with lots of love for you, my blog friends. I so appreciate and love all my friends in blogland. You are the best!!!! God bless you all.
Here it is: 

This wreath sits in my living room fireplace mantle, it dresses up the room, I added a beautiful brown satin ribbon for you to hang it from a door, a wall, or on top of your bed.  I just love the antique look, the pages are from an old opera history book.  I rolled them and attached them to the wire wreath with twine.  I hope you like it as much as I do.  If you would like a "mini tutorial" on how to make the wreath, please email me and I will post one. Its not so hard, it just takes a lot of time and patience. Just put on a good movie and roll and roll and roll until your fingers hurt, not too bad.  But you don't have to do it, you can win it right here, I did all the work for you.


I LOVE THIS NEW PAINT, THE NAME IS CHALK PAINT.  I thought it was chalkboard paint, but its not. Its regular paint, but the big SECRET is decorators use it all the time, no primer, no sanding????? I couldn't believe it.
This paint is water based, no odor, and when I sanded to distressed the piece, it comes out like a thin powder.

Of course its not finished yet, wait, I need to glaze, distressed, and work my magic.

I will post step by step with pictures tomorow.

You can get this paint by calling:
the Southern Institute of Faux Finishing
the number is:  601-914-FAUX  they are locating in Mississipiy.

Well, I saw the paint advertised at the mustardseedcreations blog, and I had to see it for myself.
I used three colors for the frame, I will blog tomorow,

have a wonderful saturday my friends,
