Did You Dream Off Having A Picket Fence?...

When I was a little girl I loved watching old films like ‘Gone with the Wind’, It’s a Wonderful Life’ and ‘Little Women’, loved actors like Clarke Gable, (who wouldn’t ?) Gene Kelly and Catharine Hepburn to name just a few.   I know I sound old!

All of these films had the one thing I always wanted a house with a white picket fence and yellow roses growing around it. I know most little girls dream of princess’s or wedding dresses, but not me when I grew up it was what I always wanted.

Now writing this I decided to search the term “white picket fence” and found it symbolises middle-class suburban life with a family of 5 children and a dog in a quiet neighbourhood. So maybe I was not that strange after all…

Last week I finally had my picket fence but it was not white, so off I went to my shop and mixed up a tin of Autentico Versante Matt chalk paint in Casa Blanca and started painting my fence now I just need the roses…Picket Fence & yellow roses

Why not use any old paint?.... well as I am now all grown up, I am conscious of the environment. So I chose Autentico’s Versante Matt as it is low in VOC’s, child safe and the Versante range has a 5yr UV protection built in and a water membrane.  Oh, and it’s so easy to work with.

And by the way, I live in a quiet neighborhood with my husband 3.7 children ?? (all but one grown up)  and a dog ?. Yellow roses in the garden. So my childhood dream did finally come true…
