NYC Paint Can

I was shooting the paint can for my Etsy shop and thought these photos turned out pretty well. I'm not real confident about my photo-styling skills, so this helps.

Love it! Not sure why....but I've always been attracted to grid patterns, which is odd because I don't consider myself an orderly person. At all. Actually, I'm the sloppy, artist type. When I'm at home I'm usually wearing old clothes covered in paint and varnish. 'Cause I never know when I'll be working on something for Carolina Cottage. Might ad well be prepared. Therefore, I feel like such a slob when I go out on the front porch or walk the dogs around the neighborhood. The neighbors must think I have absolutely no style. Oh well...

Little Paint Can

This little guy is new, in my shop here
For only $12, he can be anything you want him to be: a pencil holder, a vase for wildflowers, a candy jar....
Oh, and if the lid is not needed at the time, you can use it as a coaster!

Gifts For Men

Men are hard to buy for - we all know this. This time of year, there may be several occasions when you'll need to find something for a dad, grad or groomsman. You want something personalized - not just another tie or pint glass.

Something with a map on it, perhaps? I have trays and coasters that will have some meaning for the man in your life and may help to keep him organized. Both are available at my shop. Link on the right.

Or some really cool recycled beer glasses made from recycled beer bottles. I have a set of glasses made from soda bottles and love them!
Available at Yava glass on Etsy

Or some beer soap. Available here

St. Augustine, April 2010

Dave in front of the Monk's Vineyard, one of his favorite spots in St. Aug. Previously it was a restaurant, but now the owner will only occasionally open his shop and sell anything.

Bedrooms I Like

They run the gamut from clean and simple to modern country to the exotic. Enjoy!
