I wanted to take the time to Welcome another new blogger! Debi Coules , anyone who loves romantic roses art will know her, she has a blog now! Be sure to stop over and say hi, also, take a look at her beautiful art. If there were anyone I would consider my Competition it would be Debi ! I was thrilled that she let me make her beautiful blog banner, she was great to work with turning out a lovely romantic header.
My last visit to Sarasota, where my parents live, I stoped by the most Romantic spots I know, Sarasota Salvage, I know your thinking the most Romantic Place? When you walk into this place it just takes you back in time, though most everything is old , peeling chippy paint, musty, dusty, I can just picture in my head what certain objects looked like when they were in their prime, it gives you the chills! I can also picture what most treasures will look like after I paint them with roses, oh no Not the patina, almost never, just adding roses , a cottage scene, birds gives each piece new life to last for years. Here is an old Craftsman Home Porch post I just finished also added a Mosaic top, great for a plant stand, they would have put the house number on this chippy guy, heavy, peeling paint, full of rusty nails! Shawn , one of the Salvage guys said, what are you going to do with this old thing lol Well, if he could only see it now! I picked up a few treasures, a sweet old door with 4 mini glass paynes, cant wait to start on it. Then a few little what nots I will have to post later on, I love little treaures too. Take a look at that HUGE chandelier , it was taken from a very old theater that was demolished :( What a sin! Enjoy the pics and take a peek at Sarasota Salvage on line Enjoy!
