I'm going to do the draw tomorrow based on comments, tweets, emails and people talking to me on the playground. I'll have my assistant pull the name to make things fair. If you are into bribery, she is on a raw diet and likes diamond collars.
So, I apologize for the little blogging absence. I bit off more than I could chew with the addition of the art class to my schedule. My first big assignment is due tomorrow along with my sketchbook, so I've been working like a maniac.
I should have postponed the summer house project but I'm stubborn. I ended up spending most of a week painting. Thankfully, it's all done now.
So, what started out with an unfinished outdoor screened room:
And a curbside find of two rattan bar stools:
Inspired a vision that was a little bit Lilly:
And a little bit Lyford:
Only I had a verrry tight budget.
So I Kijijied:
And I painted
And painted and painted and painted...
Until the ceiling was a beautiful haint blue (my own special Benjamin Moore creation.)
And the walls were Benjamin Moore Cotton Balls.
The über-talented Anne of Old Oakville Slipcovers transformed 1980s floral cushions into Palm Beach Chic goodness using fabric from The Designer's Attic and Designer Fabrics.
And Target and Jysk and consignment stores were hit for cheap chic accessories.
And it all came together.
All I have to do now is throw a shindig. Luckily, Island View, the Lilly Pulitzer shop, is opening in Oakville on July 9 so there will be lots of Palm Beach chic goodness I can wear. (Or I can continue in savings mode and pull out my vintage 1970s Lilly maxi-dress.)
Well, it's now happily back to real life and a more regular blogging schedule. Stay tuned tomorrow for the big draw.
Good luck, kittens.
Update! Congratulations to Filou winner Sheila D. Your necklace is on its way!!!
