paint, plants, and other tiny particles: setting up shop!







here we are. the first real week of shop key in hand.
ash came for a visit and we scoured the thrift stores for good finds. namely a nice dresser which we plan on using as a fixture in the shop. we saw a lot of fancy ones we loved and then made our way out to the furniture warehouse of the salvation army. wow.

we found one we just loved (and had a mirror "i bet it's the old kind" ash gushed.. and it was)
the guy working there gave us a great deal and voile..it was ours. we headed back with a truckload of goodies for the shop and a pocketfull of dreams.
tune in later this week for painting 101: moseyhandmade.
*after much deliberation we picked "sea-cove" a lovely robins eggshell blue and "hawthorn yellow".
