Kingfisher Blue

Does this kingfisher know how french country he is?

With summer drawing to an end comes the anticipation of cooler days, soccer games, school activities and - my favorite - the beautiful autumn leaves.  Keeping in mind the brilliant colors of fall, this past week I spent working on a few pieces in those true gorgeous french country colors of blue and yellow.  These are such vibrant colors that can add a pop of charming color in any room.

I am about to add a deep red to my color scheme this week with my beautiful desk/chest of drawers set to have its makeover.  I can't wait to post the pics in the Projects page as it comes along in the next few days.

I spent quite a few hours last week at On A Whim. I repainted a dresser (yes, in the middle of the shop while customers were browsing around!) and we dropped off my new plank table and little chest of drawers.

Heading out to Lucketts on Thursday to stock up again.  Can't wait to show you all!  Have a wonderful first week back to reality!  Suzanne
