Chippy Hutch and Porcelain Babies

 This was my begining-of-the-week project.  A gorgeous, chippy hutch.  This hutch is really chippy.  It's so chippy, it makes me chipper.  The thing I love about milk paint, is that you never really know how the end product is going to turn out.  I suppose if I had an A-type personality, that would bother me - but I don't.  Quite the opposite :)

Next week, I am trading my painting skills in exchange for time spent with a photographer.  My pictures are good, but they're not 'WOW' good.  Luckily for me, my sisters' sister-in-law asked if I'd paint her a sideboard.  She happens to be a photographer.

Other exciting news on the business front: Repurposed Gems now accepts payment via credit card!  I visited my local Apple Store last night, and they got me all hooked up with the latest small-business technology - a card reader for my iphone.  It's WAY cool.

This hutch would be fun in a guest room as a place to put linens.

So much pretty-ness.

These are my babies.  They are at the cutest baby-phase possible. I call them my little porcelain dolls.  This is Hannah.

 And this is Caroline.  Speaking of them, they woke up from nap, and are calling to me.
