Local Talent AND A GIVEAWAY!!!

So, I've been working on this really fun blog series and I'm so excited to kick it off with a dear friend of mine!  I have had the privilege of working with her and her husband for the past few years and am thrilled that they both have been able to do what they love, teach and create! 
Jim, a former teacher in my school building is a master of woodworking.  I have several pieces in my home that he has made for me.  His wife, Vicki is a teacher in another school building.  We have not worked side by side, but since we both teach first grade we get together several times a year for meetings. 
Love them both.  And being as it's a small world...Vicki's niece was my sorority sister at ISU and her sister was one of my sorority advisors.  Crazy right. We knew each other before we actually knew each other!
Anyways enough about our back story...
Vicki and her husband are the creative genius behind their small business, Color me Chic.  You can shop their booth at the Antique Emporium in Ferdinand, IN.  You can also contact them via their facebook page

Love, Love, Love the blue!!

You can either purchase items that they have purchased, restored and painted or you can take them a piece you already own for them to give it a new look.  I have spoken to Vicki on several occasions about the work they do and I can assure you it is only top notch!
Lucky for Vicki, her husband is a cute are these wooden letters for a mantle display.  These are a pretty popular item in their booth!  They can custom make any phrase for any holiday!
So on to our giveaway...

    "I love the blue dresser. I got to see it before it was finished. They did a wonderful job."

  4. Vicki has painted a piece for us that was just the oak wood color and made it alive again by finishing it as a distressed black piece. She is doing some other oak pieces of ours as well! We have also bought from her booth several times! :) She does great work!
