Just between you and me, my mind is still scrambling to process that we’re two sleeps till Christmas, and almost at the end of 2013. There are moments when I can’t wait for this year to be over (December seems to hold two months worth of activities!), and others where I think I need just a few more days to sort out myself and my family and my projects and just life in general. I’ve been so very lucky this year with so much to be very grateful for, loads of new stuff, challenges, and wins.
Emma turned 5 and Harry turned 2. We’ve shared some great times with old friends and made new ones. I moved from Blogger to WordPress, had a logo designed, ran market stalls and painted loads of furniture.
My most popular post this year was this two tone china cabinet, I still love the look and would love something similar to work on again. But as always with this business, I find something different every time. My most popular item at markets would definitely be my ottomans; I’ve sold each of them very quickly and enjoy the process… I might even give a tufted one a go next year
I still love the thrill of arriving at an op shop, auction or junk pile and wondering what I will find. I love thinking about colour and pattern and hope that this year will bring even more amazing pieces for me to makeover (thrifting fairies willing).
I’ve also been very lucky to have received some sponsored post opportunities from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Wayfair Australia, Rust-Oleum and Sika Australia. I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that I would have these opportunities and I’m beyond grateful to each of these companies for working with me. To see my work at the Better Homes & Gardens Show in Sydney was amazing, and something I will certainly hold as a highlight for this year.
So I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting me here at Paisley Vintage, for commenting and supporting me and my passion. I can’t thank you enough. I wish you and your family every happiness for the holidays and look forward to seeing you here in 2014.
