To say it has been challenging for Jill and I to get together once a week and dedicate an entire day to With A Twist would be a pathetic understatement! I mean, its SUMMER! Our kids are asking us to drive them this way and that way, we both work outside the home doing various things, and heck, come sundown, I'm cuddled up on the couch, ready to read my favorite blogs (see list in the bottom right hand corner of this page). Can you say, "run-on" sentence? Sorry! So, today I woke up with very low expectations of crossing paths with my business partner of two+ years/BFF of fourteen. Lately, we are like strangers in the night! That doesn't sound right, does it? Anyway, to my surprise it only took a quick phone call (and a little rearranging of schedules for us both), to free up our day!
Mission: to purchase our very first bucket of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Destination: The Bella Bungalow (www.thebellabungalow.com). I've been dying to get my hands on Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint and Wax, but something always comes up. Not today! Only about three stores in the entire state of Washington carry it. And, one of them is only a 30 minute drive from my house! Lucky me! If any of you Pacific North-westerners are out there looking for someone who knows their stuff when it comes to painting furniture...Kellyanne from Bella Bungalow is your girl! Her shop is currently ran out of her home, but she is hoping to be in her retail space sometime in September! Tell her With A Twist sent you :)
Anyway, here's what our day looked like via the lens...
|Getting it on camera...I was like a little kid on Christmas morning!|
|And lastly, these kids had a great day! For most of the afternoon we had the rare, but more than welcomed-visit from the sun, which made for a nice walk to the local Jamba Juice!|
Look for future projects from us using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Wax! We are hooked! Thanks for stopping by and come back soon!
Cheree and Jill
