after piecing these two pieces of wood together and painting them an amazing aqua blue, this piece was crying out to have the effiel tower painted on it.

these two pieces of wood are especially amazing and the aqua color just makes all the imperfections truly special.

    Oh for Pete’s sake, that sign is gorgeous! Aqua is my FAVORITE color! I hate mornings, but now I am going to have to set three alarms to get my keister out of bed so I can shop your Etsy store when it opens Wednesday morning; I certainly hope you are happy causing my lack of sleep!

    Ok, are you going to be selling those darling benches in your Esty store as well? I collect benches (among many other things), and there does not appear there is a way to browse your B&B’s gift shoppe online to buy those. Please advise.
