It's a Grey Dey

It surely is grey here at the moment.

A very grey day at the beach.

Have you ever heard of Jeanne d'Arc Living?
I stumbled upon it when searching for chalk paint.

My blogfriend Daphne had been painting some furniture in a beautiful dark grey "krijtverf" (which is something like chalk paint) and I immediately fell in love with it.

So, on I went for a pinterest hunt.

A whole new world opened up to me
with beautiful greys and whites and vintage relics.

"Hang on" I thought
I do have some beautiful old pieces
gifts from my grandmother

Like this I don't know what it is on the left
and a earhanger on the middle of this photo above.

And another family treasure
the old silver powder-box my great-grandma used (photo below).

Then I stumbled upon another feast
the so called Grey Dey Thursdeys by Petite Michelle Louise.
Found it via Suziqu's Threadworks

Now those are beautiful blogs I highly recommend visiting.


Happy Grey Dey Thursdey
and bye bye for now!

Sharing this with Grey Dey Thursdey.

  17. Hi hi, wat grappig dat je via "mijn" nw meubeltjes via via zo'n mooie post op je blog kan zetten (hoezo we inspireren elkaar allemaal?!!!!)
    Wat een mooie spullen en wat een mooie foto's heb je ervan genomen zeg.
    En dan die foto's van het strand, normaal zou je met je hoofd diep in je kraag gauw doorlopen, maar jij zag de schoonheid van het moment en hebt ook daar prachtige foto's van genomen (of is het niet jouw hond?)

    Heb je de krijtverf nou gevonden (en gekocht?) of was dat uiteindelijk niet de bedoeling?

    Fijne zondag, liefs, Daphne
