COMING SOON.........

One of my favorite bloggers has a new venue....Marian  of Miss Mustard Seed had a vision {another of many successful ones}.  Her leap of faith ?  A line of milk paints in her favorite colors. Anyone familiar with her blog knows how talented she is with her re-purposed furniture.   

Her bio: Mustard Seed Interiors LLC is a small business that was born out of a love for antiques, decorating on a budget, and giving old pieces of furniture new life. While the primary focus of the retail business is painted and refinished furniture, MSI also carries upholstered pieces, found objects, vintage-inspired painted signs and handmade accessories for the home.  All of these products are currently available for sale on the first floor in The Old Lucketts Store in Leesburg, VA.

AND: a freelance writer for and a contributor to Cottages and Bungalows magazine (DIY Essentials Column.

I'm sure you've seen her work she's been featured in:  
Romantic Homes magazine (January 2011), Flea Market Style (Spring 2011), Flea Market Finds with Matthew Mead (Spring 2012) and online at Houzz, Apartment Therapy, Design Sponge, and many DIY/Home Decorating blogs.

If that wasn't enough she has a book coming out, Inspired You, published by Thomas Nelson, will be available in October of 2012.

Packaging and mailing out 20,000 Milk Paint color cards

 Some of her work.....

"I started with 15 retailers and then we just kept adding more until now we’re up to over 80 retailers and we have about 150 on hold until we’re ready to bring on more."

 I will update you when I find out who the retailers are and where you can purchase a can.
