Curio as a Stain on Our Shop Floors – Guest Blogging at Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint

Curio Floors 6

I'm guest blogging over at Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint blog today about how we used Milk Paint as a Stain in Curio for our shop floors.     I noticed that I never mentioned in the post how much Hemp Oil it took to seal 1500 square feet of wood and the answer is: 2 gallons. We love hemp oil! Before the nasty winter weather arrives, we'll apply a … [Read more...]

Youve failed many times

I saw this come through on my timeline on Facebook tonight and I just needed to share it with you. It speaks for itself and I hope you feel encouraged by it:     The credit for this post comes from Jeff Dunham, shared earlier on his Facebook page. It stopped me in my tracks. Powerful words!   … [Read more...]

People You Meet

Maierle Furniture

I've met a lot of great people since beginning this blog in 2011. Some are other vendors, antique dealers, antique lovers, furniture refinishers, photographers, interior designers, you name it! But my favorite people are the ones that come to me with a story to tell. I've heard a lot of them, but today's story goes to show how you never know what might happen when … [Read more...]

Beautiful Autumn


As much as I could leave the cold weather behind, I absolutely love the Fall season. I love the turning of the leaves, hayrides, pumpkins, hot cider, cozy nights, and the feeling that we're all slowing down a bit. Fall is also harvest time and a time to enjoy the bounty of the season and gather around our tables to reconnect and share.   So when I began … [Read more...]

Toronto Fall Home Show 2014 and a Gift

Sunday Inspiration – August 17, 2014


Some of you might be waiting for some "thing" to happen, but the power has been within you all along. It's just like Dorothy's story: you've had the ability all along.   I read a line in a Leo Buscaglia book once that changed my life. I'm paraphrasing, but it said something to the effect "if you don't like the script or the play that you're in, change the … [Read more...]

Flow Blue

Flow Blue 4

So this story begins with the arrival of an antique. I'm not even sure what to call it because it's not a chest. It has 2 drawers and 2 doors on either end, but the top does not open. It would be beautiful at the foot of a bed. You see, the backside was already painted a very pretty royal blue.     It was meant to be painted that color so Miss … [Read more...]
