Lunenburg Bound!

Front Porch Mercantile in Lunenburg

I’m so excited. Seriously. I am. And nervous. I should mention the nervous part.

As y’all know, we have our cottage in Lunenburg and we have a little love affair going on with this awesome little artistic town. I really wanted to bring Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint here. I just FEEL that this town would love it. So, we’re doing it, we are bringing Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint to town!

Mr. FPM took this picture of Lunenburg last year, one of my readers said it looked like “milk paint” town. I agree.

We are excited to be attending our first craft fair this coming weekend in Lunenburg. The 40th Anniversary of the Lunenburg Festival of Crafts on July 11th and 12th. You can find all the info out here on their web site, and they would be super happy if you liked them on FB here. (and tell them we sent you, we’re trying to make friends here ha ha).

Lunenburg Festival of CraftsI will be the girl all frazzled at my quiet little booth. I am woefully underprepared. (Not my usual way to roll) I am such a complete newbie – I’m just gonna wing it. Well, ok, I have a few more days to prepare, so maybe “wing it” is not correct. I am a professional right?? :) I will have Milk Paint for sale, a few pieces of furniture and some smaller pieces. I’m hoping just to spread the word that MISS MUSTARD SEED’S MILK PAINT IS COMING TO LUNENBURG! Cool right?

The wonderful and uber cool Pam from Mom’s Buy and Sell on Lincoln Street has agreed to let me set up a little paint area in her great shop. Pam and her staff will be getting some milk paint technique lessons and I will be available regularly for help. We will also be offering Milk Paint Workshops at our lil cottage by the sea so you can come “paint by the sea” with me too! FUN right?? You can check out the workshops and schedule here. I would love to have you come paint with me.

Pam has some REALLY awesome things in her shop. I see LOTS of potential Milk Painted pieces here, don’t you. Head over to her FB page and give her a like too. She’s so busy she doesn’t get to update all her cool things there, so you will have to pop in too! Here are a few shots from her fab shop located at 229 Lincoln Street in Lunenburg NS.

I’m so excited.



And nervous. I’m nervous about my first fair. But, I’m pretty excited. Did I mention that? So all will be fine. If anything I am excited just to tell people Milk Paint is coming to the South Shore! And you all know I can chat about Milk Paint and painted furniture all day long and then some.

Can I hear a woot woot?
