Permanent Marker Floral Shoes

My friend Meagan asked me to draw a floral pattern on a pair of shoes for her using permanent markers. That is something I have been wanting to do for myself for the longest time, but still haven't, so of course I agreed! Here is the process.

Anne and Gil

I just purchased Rifle Paper Co's illustrated edition of Anne of Green Gables, my favourite book series, a few days ago. It is all the more appropriately sitting on my shelf as an homage to Jonathan Crombie, a.k.a. Gilbert Blythe, who died on April 15th at age 48. He was excellent in bringing the heartwarming story to life.

Reclaimed Jewellery Frame

My friend Meagan made this jewellery hanging piece from a frame she found on the road and a thrifted crocheted pillow cover. She painted the frame with a mix of Antibes Green and Louis Blue Chalk Paint, waxed it, and then used a staple gun to attach the lace. It could be used for displaying cards and such too! Isn't it lovely? Well, hint hint: Meagan will be starting up a furniture refinishing business soon...

Tub in Mint Condition

I saw this bathtub at an architectural salvage store for $295. Aside from the black mark you can see on the front, the interior of the bathtub is in excellent condition, considering it's probably from the '50s or '60s. Coloured fixtures are either revolting or funky, and used in the right bathroom this tub could be quite the latter. If only I had a tub that needed to be replaced!
