A visit to Chalk it Up Norcross

I recently had the opportunity to visit and photograph Chalk it Up Norcross. Chalk it Up is a retail boutique that carries paints, products and gifts for the home. It is a lovely space filled with light, color and texture.

At Chalk it Up, you will find Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan, Royal Design Studio stencils and Masion de Stencils.

For those of you who are not familiar with Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan, it is a paint that is used on furniture, floors, walls, and cabinetry. I received samples of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint at my first Haven Conference. I have used Annie Sloan chalk paint and I love it! The best part is there is no prep work involved. No stripping, sanding, or priming is needed. It is a huge time saver. It also has a quick dry time which is an overall win!

Below are are a few of the paint colors that are available. Arles (deep yellow) and Old White are two of my favorites.

I enjoyed my visit with Lynn the owner of Chalk it Up Norcross. It is a lovely boutique full of eye candy. If you are in the Norcross, Georgia area, I highly recommend you stop in for a visit.

Thank you for visiting My Sweet Things. Have a lovely day!


Texas Wildflowers

We recently packed up our SUV and headed on a road trip to Texas. My sweet Texas where I was born and raised. It’s a 1,000 mile drive through 4 states and it was an awesome adventure. Texas is known for its Bluebonnets in Spring and I was thrilled to see them in all their glory. As we were driving outside of Houston, the highway side roads were filled with abundant color. After a shout of “Pull over!”, Maggie Holzer, Justin and I were able to truly enjoy the colors of Texas Wildflowers.
