Robyn Story Designs is a stockist for Annie Sloan Chalk paints.
They also carry Artisan Enhancements by Aloha Coatings.
This product line included Transfer Gel, Easy Crackle, Crackle Tex,
Leaf & Foil Size, Fine Stone, Pearl Plaster and Clear Topcoat.
Robyn, herself, was there and took the time to demonstrate the application of many of the products. She shared many of her tried and true techniques and tips.
I bought several Annie Sloan brushes and a few tins of the Gilders Paste which is a wax based medium that comes in many colors and is used to highlight. I can't wait to try it with my Annie Sloan Chalk paints on some new projects at home. I plan on doing quite a bit of painting this spring! Let's hope I follow through on those plans! Additionally they carry Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paints which I have not tried yet but hear good things about too!
The spring time vignettes in this wonderful boutique
were full of charming bunnies!
I love bunnies. :)
There was an abundance of lighting choices
and some fabulous chandeliers that took my breath away.
Robyn couldn't have been friendlier or more gracious.
She really was generous with her time,
her design knowledge and her painting tips.
Other staff members were friendly and attentive too!
Everywhere we looked, there was inspiration...
...creativity and artful ideas were in each arrangement.
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
