We've been featured in the West End Times

We are so excited! The West End Times is featuring us this week. Click here to view the article.  I just had to show you this wonderful photo of Scandinavian pink on this vintage piece. Courtesy of Annie Sloan. 

We've also been hard at work with our beginners workshop, teaching the "French country look". 

I've been meeting such creative, wonderful people. Tomorrow I leave for Boston to meet the woman who inspired all of this, Annie Sloan. I am very excited. I will also be meeting Lisa Rickert, the person who is responsible for bringing Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint to North America for all of us to ENJOY! Our North American Distributor. 

Where, oh where would we be without it!!!!

My words of inspiration for the week.......

Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.
Pamela Vaull Starr

Have a great week. I will have loads to say when I get back.

Going to Boston

Many of you who have been following the hype about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint will be aware of her North American Tour. I am so excited to announce that I will finally meet her in person, in Boston on April 2nd.

We, Piorra Maison, as a stockist for the Québec region have 3 mysterious people who have registered for her workshop in Boston. I had the pleasure of meeting one of them this week. She has been a FAN of Annie's for over 20 years long before we even heard of her on North American Soil. She has written many design and "how to" books that have been around for years. A few people have given me her books to bring to Boston to have her sign during her Book signing.  Gee what a great idea! I thought why not take a book from the store and have her sign it for moi!. Of course we got busy and I forgot to put the book aside...WELL wouldn't ya know it! I sold the last one yesterday! Poopoo! Now what!? Make her sign a can of paint, na, thats stupid...a label, na, stupid idea....???? ugh!!! Well we shall see!

This paint is so much fun. I cannot wait to meet the woman who started all the craze! 
Here is a sneak peak at something that will appear on our video promoting our boutique and workshops. 
This piece was done in 15 minutes with the colour Emperor's Silk. 

Just having fun! You'll see on our video!

Here is one of Annie's 

I love this Paint!

P.S no time to proof read, so here it is in the raw! Running late!

My quote for the day!

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
