We would like to take a minute and thank each and every one of you for giving us the opportunity to share our passion for CeCe Caldwell’s Paints with you! Two years ago, we took the plunge into the “Chalk & Clay Paint” world by becoming the first retailer in the Northeast for CeCe Caldewll’s Chalk, Clay & Mineral Paints….. at that time, we did not do Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram or any other social media… No web page or blog… would never have thought I would take a credit card payment via my cell phone or even have a PayPal account for anything other then buying junque on ebay! But here we are 2 years later and doing all of these! A quote from Humphrey Bogart comes to mind:
“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.”
We owe it all to you! If YOU did not choose “The Vintage Dames” out of all the other CeCe retailers, and all the other paints in all the web world… we would not be here! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
”I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
So what do we have to share with you tonight… Sunday evening, January 5, 2014? It is raining ice, roads are frozen & we are thawing by the fire. Just finished up some New Years Day sauerkraut with hotdogs and now…. they tell us there is a “POLAR VORTEX AIRMAS” coming on Tuesday… sounds like something out of another movie…. any guesses?
Our first shipment of CeCe’s new colors arrived on Thursday… So excited….we poured samples, painted sticks and then went picking in the basement for something to paint!
Kailua is pronounced “ky-lew-ah”, and it is named after the coral reef on the windward coast at Kailua Bay, on the island of Oahu in Hawaii!
The Pink Lady’s Slipper is the state flower of Minnesota… a rare wildflower…. fitting for our beautiful PINK don’t ya think?
Got to tell you… I am loving these two colors… they are beautiful for winter! Just wait till you see them in the snow!
What did we find to paint? How about some baby shoes!
I told you they are beautiful for winter! I love this photo…. the snow, the Coral, the Pink…. beautiful!
I decided to do a little distressing! On the shoes I used CeCe’s Dark Aging Cream and then sealed with our Waxing Cream! Oh yea… a little Aging Dust too!
On the jewelry box, first a little wet distressing, then a little aging dust and sealed with CeCe’s Waxing Cream!
I really had fun with these little projects. Seems like I can never find the time to get big stuff painted… but I love to paint the small stuff…. CeCe’s Paints… not just for furniture…. paint the small stuff too!
Thanks for stopping by!
