Painting from Memory

Last Saturday while teaching a class, I picked up an old canvas that I had started a painting on but never finished, about 10 years ago. I decided to use it as a painting demo and paint on it from memory of an inspiration I once had from a design on an antique piece of French china. I played around with it in class then picked it up again yesterday and finished it. It was so nice to see it finally come to life! XO Christie

A Fun Weekend Visiting Some Local Shops!

I had a few friends spend some time with me this past weekend and we really enjoyed visiting some of the shops in my area. It started on Friday as we went out to Matilda's Mouse Barn sale where they were having a tribute to the Great Gatsby...

 Then Saturday we had a lovely time visiting Main St. in Lake Elsinore where Mora's Antiques was having an Open House and Vintage Vendetta was having their Grand Opening, we also discovered another shop on the street called Urban d├ęcor.We had so much fun shopping and enjoying all the creativity!

Last but certainly not least we visited Vignettes in San Diego to see the store all dressed up for Summer!


Hope you enjoyed the shopping tour, XO Christie

Focusing on the Farm Girls!

Since our focus for the September show is "Farmgirl Fancies" I wanted to share from a vendor in our show "Sweet Magnolia's Farm" , they specialize in vintage "farmstyle" and are quite famous for it! Every show we are always excited to see what they bring and do with their booth. Here are a few photos of some of the amazing props and styling they have done to showcase their things!

XO, Christie
