About Us

My photo
Southern, California, United States
My sister and I are "Annie Louise". We live in sunny Southern California. Ever since we were kids our mom would take us to estate sale and garage sales. So I guess it is only natural that we still both love to go to garage sales, flea markets and thrift stores--- nothing more exciting than the thrill of the hunt and the find!! Our style is a cross between rustic, shabby chic and beachy. We are both new to blogging, but have decided to start our own blog. We hope you find this blog interesting and come back to visit often. Thanks for visiting, Jackie and Jeanette

New Signs

We found these brand new plaques at a thrift store.

We snatched them up and came up with these designs.
For C'est La Vie, we painted the wood white, then used stencils for the rest of the design.

For the Bonjour sign, we painted the entire wood piece gray, then with the help of our Silhouette machine printed out the word "Bonjour". 
We put down the vinyl Bonjour lettering, then we painted over the Bonjour with white paint, so that the Bonjour lettering shown through in gray.

Hope you like them.

We are connecting to The Shabby Chic Cottage http://www.theshabbychiccottage.net/
 for other Transformation Thursday eye candy.

Have a great week. Jackie and Jeanette
