A very Happy New Year 2017 to all!
We are happy to start this new year with a bright new color, perfect to warm us up during those cold winter days!

♦ New color! 

Outback Petticoat is the newest color of Miss Mustard Seeds Milk Paint. It's rich, earthy and full of fire like the Outback settlers and pioneers.  A gorgeous shade that is warm, classic and bold, its name makes reference to the stained hems of petticoats by women in the 1800s and early 1900s.
