Two beautiful things are coming to our little town….cherry blossoms around Lake Anna and Cari Cucksey. Okay, okay; the cherry blossoms won’t arrive for a couple months…but they’re coming I promise but unfortunately, Cari isn’t coming to Beauteous Barberton any time soon….but her new paint line is! The paint line is called “RePurpose” and it consists of 15 fun paint colors (with 10 more on the way which should arrive about the same time as the aforementioned cherry blossoms) and 12 colored stains. These products are foolproof which means yes; YOU can use it and YES before you know it, you’ll be reinventing everything in sight and loving every minute of it….it cures just about any surface ailment. The new goodies are at the shop (once again I traveled through a snow storm for you but this time, Gary was driving Miss Daisy) neatly stacked in their boxes just waiting for me to cleverly display them. Not quite sure yet how I’m going to display them, but I can almost guarantee you that I’ll be losing sleep for the next couple nights trying to figure that out. Cue the insomnia.
For those of you that watch HGTV aka ‘my nemesis’ you may recognize Cari from her show “Cash and Cari” where she shows us her estate sale escapades and gives pointers on just about anything vintage. She also has a retail shop plus she travels to shows in her sweet Airstream trailer. So yep, I would say that she’s a pretty big deal in Michigan and not to mention, she’s cute as a button and a real go-getter! That little blond package isn’t afraid of work!
And last but not least: as promised, we’ll be having classes in the near future hopefully before the cherry blossoms bloom so please follow the blog for updates and schedules. Those of you that have spare time on your hands, feel free to stop by the shop and help me organize the back room so we can get those classes started before the blooming begins. Just kidding….but I have to admit, it sure sounds like a great idea!
That mother of a mother….Mother Nature is still hard at work here in Ohio and we’re closed again today due to the bitter cold. I swear we’ve been closed more in January and February than we have been open! Please … Continue reading →
For quite a while now I have wanted a big, shiny white vintage scale. I don’t know why, I just wanted one. So in the previous few nights while insomniating (my new made up word) of course I had to … Continue reading →
She wore a raspberry beret buffet, the kind you find in a second hand store. Raspberry beret buffet, and if it’s warm she wouldn’t wear much more…raspberry beret buffet…..I think I looooooooove her. You have to use your imagination here … Continue reading →
We (I) have decided to close Wednesdays until the weather breaks; no one seems to want to shop on Wednesday during the bitter winter. If you need us in the meantime, please contact us and we’ll make arrangements to meet. THINK SPRING!
Okay, so my title is a bit misleading…..I don’t really have bloody knees but I do have glossy white floors. Yep….that quick ‘paint the floors’ idea that Gary had last Sunday still isn’t complete; I still have the hallway to … Continue reading →
I can bet your beautiful snowy Sunday wasn’t nearly as fun as my snowy Sunday. It all began over breakfast; Gary said “I would really like to get the upstairs finished so let’s (as in ‘me’ not ‘him’) paint the … Continue reading →
Yep….I’m one happy girl. A couple weeks ago I mentioned on Facebook that I was hunting for bentwood chairs and ask my friends to keep their eyes open. I have always loved bentwood chairs, I think it’s pretty darn amazing … Continue reading →
We love using mirrors to display our favorite ‘one-of-a-kind’ finds. This antique mirror is a great back drop for the vintage b&w license plate star. This repurposed star was made by a local artist using all Ohio license plates! Also … Continue reading →
