~ Annie Sloan's Painter in Residence ~

Agnieszka Krawczyk is one of Annie Sloan's Painter in Residence.

This is what Annie's says about her "Painters in Residence" artist program. 

 "My 'Painters in Residence' runs on a three-month cycle giving three artists three months in which to explore the ‘what ifs?’ and ‘why nots?’ of using Chalk Paint and other Annie Sloan products."

Agnieszka used Chalk Paint® colors Provence, Pure, Old White, Napoleonic Blue, Antoinette, Louis Blue and Antibes Green on the outside of the chest.  By layering one color on top of the other she created a blend of colors and great texture. Some of her colors came straight 
out of the pot and others she mixed. As soon as the paint was dry she used a scraper, 
sandpaper and putty knife to begin chipping in to the paint. 

Here is another piece painted by Agnieszka in Chalk Paint®colors Florence and Graphite.

Our garden is being featured in this April/May Country Sampler Magazine.

Stylist Fifi ONeill and photographer Mark Lohman visited our house last June

I hope you will visit a Lady Butterbug shop and purchase a magazine
and take a walk through our garden.

Fifi's new book Praire-Style Weddings is available for purchase.  Fifi will be at
our McKinney Lady Butterbug Shoppe in June for a book signing.

Steve and I are looking forward to her visit.

~ Muscari Blue Hyacinths Blooming in Texas ~


Muscari is one of the first bloomers in my Texas yard.
Really Lenten Rose is the very first plant to bloom its soft pink flower
and the daffodils are blooming too.


Plant Muscari bulbs inside to add SPRING to your house.

I wonder if you're looking forward to SPRING as much as I am.

My garden will be featured in Country Sampler Magazine
in the upcoming April/May issue.
