I have completely fallen in love with Antoinette! The lovely light pink shade of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! I did a Coco wash with base of Antoinette to create this lovely aged look on this French carved wood full bed! Not hard to do…just play around with your shades until you find what works best with your piece of furniture.
I brushed paint over the carved sections to create a natural aged and distressed look…it’s very easy to do, easier then painstakingly filling in all the cracks and crevices with paint!
Check out Antoinette for yourself! I’m sure you will luv it! Happy Painting!@ Chrissy
Back in June I announced I was sooo excited because Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® was coming to my shop via Magnolia Lane Design. We had a wonderful summer, I learned all about the Chalk Paint®, went through training, did lots of painting myself to learn how to work with the product and as a result of falling madly in love with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®, I was blessed with the opportunity to become the Stockist in this area! So, it’s official, Cape May Antiques Inc. is now the stockist for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®. Stephanie Granit, Magnolia Lane Design’s owner, is still in full swing at her Pt. Pleasant NJ location so be sure to stop there if you are ever in the area!
We are also selling Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® on our website in the On Line Shopping section. Please visit www.anniesloan.com to find a retailer nearest you.
Lovely antique Haviland Limoges French tea cups and saucers. The pattern is Schleiger 39E. Have you ever checked out how many Haviland Limoges patterns there are? 1,000s or more! Mind blowing how they created so much art for their porcelain!
Matching round covered tureen or casserole. Trimmed in gold, these date from around 1910 or so.
Pair of pink depression glass fluted wine glasses. Just the right size for a lovely large glass of white wine! Or red, but it might clash but who cares!
Set on a lovely antique silk, hand embroidered pink pillow case. Puff stitch pattern with blue accents in the flower centers. Thought maybe I could cheer your Monday with some pretty vintage pink!
I am a total sucker for pink and roses and vintage porcelain. Put the 2 together and LOOK OUT! Pretty vintage mustache cup and saucer, paired with a trio of large blooming roses on this cabinet plate equals pure bliss!
Gorgeous cut work or reticulated rim on the cabinet plate…aren’t these roses gorgeous?
I love my vintage glass vase filled with a combination of dried herbs and a dried peonies flower…wishing for new life in spring!
I decided to take some photos of my French Limoges table setting before I replaced it with a spring setting! I had mixed some Old Paris unmarked French soup bowls with a burgundy wine colored rim decorated with gold scroll work with a simple pink floral pattern with splashes of green. Since I had so much color with the place settings I used clear glass short beverages, great for wine!
Don’t be afraid to try something difference…the gold in both pieces of china, work very well together and really the pink and dark wine color
work well together too!
Also, I added a clear candelabra in the center to add height and some short burgundy colored votive candles! When you have a few basics, you can create varying settings with just simple changes!
Here are some pressed glass dessert bowls too with a splash of shabby chic Nippon pink floral salt and pepper shakers!
So, thanks for visiting! Let me know what you think? Chrissy

I’ve been sprucing up my office, redesigning it into a shabby chic inspiration room as opposed to a cluttered Work Area! Ugh. So I was inspired to put this old shutter to use! I am currently using as an inspiration board of sorts.
