It's Time For Some Patriotic Chalkboards

 Happy Friday !
I am here to show you the red, white and blue chalkboards that are decorating the house for this patriotic season !
This is the large seasonal chalkboard that hangs on the wall into the kitchen from the family room..It is in a garage sale frame ..and gets changed out probably monthly.


Each of the galvanized tiered trays has a little chalkboard in them..
On top of the hutch in the kitchen is a thrift store silver tray painted with chalkboard paint..

 In the foyer there is a wrought iron 2 tier stand that this chalkboard sits in
 A little stitching on a chalkboard base

 This chart is from the Sampler girl..

Have a great day !

July's Stitchy Chalkboard

 Good morning!
Here is July's Hands On Design ..A Year In Chalk ..
I was working on this one yesterday and was halfway finished when I realized it was off by 2 stitches! So I have stitched this one almost twice !!!
 Since the theme is Red, White and BBQ it is in the kitchen on the counter with the green vintage scale ..
 I finished it off this morning on a piece of sticky needlework board ..and a piece of sheet metal on the back to adhere to the magnet I have glued to the gingham on the frame.

 My DIY boxwood wreath, some daisies ,a painted mason jar ..and a little chicken salt and pepper shaker complete the fun vignette..

Good Morning From the Front Yard!


Happy Monday Friends!
Have I ever told you Monday is my favorite day of the week ? I always seem to get more accomplished on Mondays!

The photo below is from 3 years ago.. We had some evergreen bushes ( they were UGLY) removed from this spot , so I had a blank slate to play with .. We also got a new post last year .
I put those flat rocks on Craig's List this year for free, and a lady came and took them all. I wasn't enjoying mowing around them anymore..

 Two years ago I planted the pink hydrangeas ( they were blue but with our soil they turn pink)..Last year I added the 3 white Annabelle hydrangeas .
 I have lots of galvanized buckets full of annuals..This all got mulched on Friday .. I started with 13 bags .. ended up using 23 !



 A church rummage sale stool , and the bunny planters came from another church rummage sale, I love using thrifty finds in the garden :)

 My vintage wheelbarrow with a big oval galvanized trough filled with annuals..I will show you more of this garden soon...It has alot of zinnias and sunflower seeds planted and they are just starting to get some buds..

One of the pink hydrangeas


Another galvanized bucket ..this one sits on a base from a bird bath .. I do love this minnow bucket with the red handle !

Patriotic Oval Galvanized Tiered Tray



Good Sunday Morning ! 
I finally have the oval galvanized tiered tray ( from Sam's Club) decorated with all the red , white and blue !
 I used some of the blue and red transferware cups and saucers, flags( from Michael's),chickens, painted mason jars, and a little cow creamer( from Cracker Barrel). Dried hydrangeas from last years flowers.. daisies and a little chalkboard.

 I put the stitching( from the Sampler Girl) mounted on a chalkboard in here on top of the stack of thrifted baskets. The summer stitching is from Lizzie Kate 4 seasons. My daughter and I  painted the red, white and blue mason jars a couple years ago.



There's a little bit of aqua to tie in the cabinet and the painting above it.


I have been gone for a week so I am off to catch up on everyones blogs!

Red ..White.. and Bloom

 Happy Tuesday!
I think I have put every patriotic cross stitch into this picnic basket this year ..I keep moving things around but I think this one was made for the picnic basket ..

I finished stitching this one last night .. It is Red ,White and Bloom from Country Cottage Needleworks. I already had this frame It is from Hobby Lobby a few years ago. ..Pumpkin Cottage from Country Cottage Needleworks was in it. 
So I took it out and used red gingham for the bottom layer.. I then put blue homespun check ( on the diagonal again ) for the next layer .. the last layer is the stitching mounted on sticky needlework board. I used a magnet on the red gingham and sheet metal on the blue gingham so I can maybe use this frame for a Christmas design..




 I left all the rest of the vignette the same with the painted mason jars and vintage scale.. I love the blue gingham inside the picnic basket so this piece fits right in with it. It is sitting on a twine tied stack of coverless books.
