New Painting, Sneak Peek at a Project, and... Did You Ever Just Paint Over Dirt?

Just finished, this new painting of a beautiful shell i have,...

I had some chippy corbels that i put up... do they look cute, or do they look stupid, like i'm trying too hard to do the chippy shabby thing...?

And.... if you live any where near Charlotte, or Concord, North Carolina, you have to go to my sister's best friends fabric warehouse !!! She has tons and tons of fabric,
for example... she sold me this soft white linen fabric for $5.00 a yard ! Can you believe that! I can't wait to get my chairs recovered....
And she's a super talented lady, she can fix up a room in a heartbeat with what you already have. Plus, she's funny and irreverant
, one of my favorite combinations...

Here is a sneak peek at something i found on Craig's list that i'm working on...

when i get rich and famous, and i have my charming little beach cottage,
i can hang a shell painting just like this over the bed...


  1. u r a wonderful ur Cow paintings. If I wasnt a poor.....single gal now..I could afford one..HA HA!

  2. Beautiful painting Cindy! You should see Pamela Anderson's beach shabby chic and gorgeous! I found a post on French Buttons blog about it..go and search it, so worth the trip!
    I like the corbels!! Keep adding more chippy shabby!

  3. Hi Cindy,
    I love your painting of the shell. It would look fabulous in my home here on the coast.
    Love the look the corbels add too.


  4. I was thinking how pretty that painting would be in someones beach cottage ! Wish I had one !
    I like the corbels too , you can't get to much chippy shabby as far as i'm concerned !

  9. Can you please let me know where the fabric
    place is in Concord/Charlotte? I go through
    there every once in a while. I'd love to
    check in there. My favorite bargain fabric
    place went out of business. Thanks so much.
