Sometimes it surprises me what folks have sitting in boxes in the basement or crawlspace… A few weeks ago a couple came to me with a box and this chandelier that had been in his family for 80 years and they didn’t know what to do with it.

My motto now is if you aren’t going to use it everyday then what is the point of hanging on to it. Or worse maybe paying for storage somewhere. Get those gems out of storage and enjoy what-ever it is you have packed away. Debi xo

Country Chic’s 1st paint conference was held in Victoria BC! Well let me just say what a blast! So many retailers from all over North America showed up to learn, create & take part. Long days filled with speakers, meetings & paint products. I was a mess of information in the evenings, trying to process and take it all in. I love hearing from others how they handle problems, issues & the like… I sat at a table with ladies from all across Canada, friendships were formed all around. It was fantastic to finally meet Roseanne & her team. Patiently waiting til next year- Debi xo
