Time Travel Thursday #88 & Talented Time Travelers #87


"We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they're called memories.
Some take us forward, they're called dreams."
~Jeremy Irons~


Welcome to the 88th Time Travel Thursday linky party at The Brambleberry Cottage!

Are you ready to share your fondest memories, grandest dreams,
and most creative projects? Great!

But before we get this shindig started, let's spotlight a few of
the talented time travelers from last week's party.


Am I the only person in all of Blogland who has not experienced
Annie Sloan chalk paint?!

When I see pretty pieces like this shelf by Analisa @
RUTH's farm and furniture, I feel like I'm
really missing out on something great.


I like a number of different decorating styles and have grown
quite fond of industrial chic pieces—like this clock.

Want to see another totally awesome industrial piece?
Then pop on over to THE OTHER ME IS SANE, and take a peek.


Okay, tell the truth! 
Have you ever heard of DIY ironstone?

Well, Todd and Jodi @ Cottage Charm Creations have
a tried-and-true method for turning pieces past their
prime into genuine gems!


Does this not look too yummy for words?!!!

Mary @ Sweet Little Bluebird knew how to tempt us.  Did she not?

I think we should start a new fad.  You've heard of dinner and a movie.
How about blogging with one of these muffins?

I'm game!   ; )

Now get this party started...
while I go find some chocolate!


IF YOU LINK TO THE PARTY, PLEASE BE SURE TO

    No, you're not the only one yet to experience chalk paint (of any kind).
    I'm planning to try to make my own.
    If it works for me, I'll let you know :)

  12. Thanks for hosting. ASCP is great to use, but I have been pretty happy with the plaster of paris (1 measure), warm water (1 measure) [mix very well] and latex paint (6-7 measures) [mix very well] for painting as well.

  14. Thanks for hosting. Love ASCP but have tried making my own. My first try was 1 measure plaster of paris, 1 measure of warm water (mixed together until satin smooth) and then 3 measures of latex paint. (I have also tried a 1/1/6 mix as well). I liked the 1/1/3 mix better).
