Inside the Boathouse

Hello everyone, Hope your week is going well. In my previous post I shared a picnic on the Boathouse porch. But, shortly after it clouded over so I moved my little picnic inside. This little nook is one of my favorite spots to curl up and relax. Cupcakes for tea. A pretty bouquet of lilacs in a vintage vase. My daughters gave me the soft throw and a couple of the big pillows. The Relax you 're on Island Time pillow was from a small local shop that has since closed down.....I have had a few inquiries about it. The sailboats came from Wicker Emporium a few years ago. So, peaceful! Today for the first time we had a mama duck and at least a dozen tiny ducklings up near our house when we came home. Alas, in spite of running into the house at breakneck speed for my camera they has hustled down to the woods before I get a photo of them. There is a brook in the woods where they must have been going. Hopefully, I will get another chance as they where so cute! This nook is the perfect spot to watch the ducks and geese on the pond. Back to our picnic. I hope you enjoyed a casual picnic in our Boathouse. Thank you for joining me today and I hope you have a great weekend! Carolyn

Pots Of Paint

Paint to me is part of story telling, whether brush strokes on canvas, transforming walls or giving a new lease on life to a vintage beauty. My mum was an artist, as well as our “in house” home painter, for both walls and hodge podge found furniture. Brushes soaking in the sink were a common sight. I have always loved an artist’s studio. The visual process of storytelling creates a comfort for me. The paints, brushes, vessels of water, all with remnants of past projects by way of drips and drops. Shabby Chic & I are of course known for a hundred shades of white, & to this day a large mass of white is my biggest AHHHH moment. Always angelic and heavenly, never seemingly cold. But where my full palette sits best is nestled within the world of vintage furniture. Texas flea markets has for years now been where I am most successful at finding my beloved palette, shades of white, blue, pink, greys and taupes. I love the history that layers of paint portrays, especially within molding and cracks of vintage furniture, & and how overtime even though the most recently applied layer of paint has the intention of erasing a past life, eventually the past will find its way of revealing itself. And that is often when the real magic unfolds. I love nothing more than finding a piece of vintage furniture with layers of my shabby palette peaking its way in. As I journey through life, I appreciate coming across inspiration for painting ideas. For many years I have been pretty stubborn about only selling authentic painted pieces in my world. However with the scarcity of my palette out in the flea market world I am thrilled to have developed a curated line of paints that can support my aesthetic with the process of painting wood furniture. The Shabby Chic by Rachel Ashwell Chalk & Clay paint has a dry hand due to the clay and chalk ingredients. I chose the palette based on my dream vintage finds over the years of all of the colours I wish I could find a never ending supply of. The paints can be used on their own or they are also designed to layer so the magic of mulit colours can be created through the process of painting furniture. There is of course an art to the process, which may take a little time and practice but is totally achievable. Newly painted pieces can never replace the soul of authentic vintage history, for with that comes love and life. But never the less this special little paint collection is the start to a new history, in a Shabby Chic way. The Shabby Chic by Rachel Ashwell Chalk & Clay paint can be purchased on our website or if you are a retailer and would like to carry the collection please visit: http://rachelashwellshabbychicpaint.com/become-a-retailer/
