I have been a busy beaver at the shop lately. 

I have expanded the shoppe into the yard and

added a garden shed named "Maude" after my maternal grandmother.

The shoppe is loaded with gift items, home decor, Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®,
 plants, painted furniture and so much more.

I hope you will visit soon to see what I have been up to.

Lady Butterbug Home in Country Sampler Home Tour Magazine ~

I am so excited that my home has been featured in 
Country Sampler Home Tour Magazine.

This is the pinkish and white quest bedroom.  The mirrored dresser is one 
of my favorite pieces in the house.  It is a vintage piece with wooden
carved handles and two glove boxes.  I love the swivel and tilting mirror.
It is painted in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in color Old White.

The wedding ring quilt top I made when I quilted several
years ago like a crazy woman.

The china on the white dresser was hand painted by my maternal
grandmother...a real keepsake for me.

This is the cover of the magazine available in stores
now through June.

I had so much fun designing and making the teacup chandelier.
 I made two of these for the newly enclosed porch at Lady Butterbug Shoppe.

The tin parts where hanging out in the garage...I tend to collect things
knowing they will be used someday.
I purchased the pink glass lampshades at a local antique shop.

I watched a You Tube on how to drill a hole in china or glass.
After purchasing a drill bit at the hardware store I drilled a 1/2"
hole in two saucers.

The collection of teacups and saucers are from my paternal
grandmother's collection that thankfully belong to me.

To make a similar light you will need a white ceramic
light socket found at the local hardware store
and a threaded thingy to thread into
the socket and run up through all the chandelier parts.
Oh and you need some lamp wire, washers and nuts too.
All of this can be purchased in the lamp section at
the hardware store.

The teacups are hung from curly ornament hangers.

I am still on the lookout for more crystals to hang all around in-between
the teacups.
