Spring Galvanized Centerpiece

 Good morning!
It's time for the spring version of the galvanized tiered tray that came form Sam's club last May!!


 Lots of eggs, birds, nests, bunnies and tulips fill the 3 tiers..
 The top layer has 3 chalk painted mason jars filled with tulips and a moss bunny..
 tea cups and little saucers hold nests with eggs..a few flower seed packets are stuffed in there too :)
 My daughter got me these cute Eastery colored chickens at Homegoods..,so they get front and center staging :)
 This little white bunny egg holder is from Walmart..
 This little bunny was bought at a church rummage sale last year ..
 a white berry basket that was a gift from my sister in law is filled with moss eggs and tulips.
 I will be showing you the rest of the kitchen decorated for spring soon..
 and the dining room too :)
 little grapevine wreaths make great nests..
 I have the tray on the counter in the kitchen instead of the table.. I might move it back to the table ..
 Doesn't it just look like 3 layers of spring ?
Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Mason Jar Chalkboard

 Good morning!
Yesterday my daughter asked me if I could draw a mason jar filled with flowers on her chalkboard ..I said sure ..but I didn't think it was going to be good enough to hang up :) !
This was the frame I had borrowed and had a piece of wood cut to use for my mantel at Halloween
 and again at Christmas..She had gotten this at a flea market for $5.00.. It is a huge frame and we left the original paint on it..

She loves it and so do I so it might be coming to a chalkboard at my house!

 I still can't believe how well it turned out :)

This mornings sunset in the neighborhood..
R is for Rabbit ( Prairie Schooler)
We went to the Goodwill yesterday and look at these ! I have wanted some red transferware for 2 years to decorate the hutch in the kitchen at Christmastime.. woohoo!!! Is it time to decorate for Christmas yet ?!? :)
Another Prairie Schooler Santa underway ..I would have finished it this past Sunday but I ran out of DMC 221 .. This Sunday for sure ..

Another Prairie Schooler Spring design
My daughter took the chalkboard home last night and hung it but had to take it down because the picture hanging wire on the back is frayed and stretchy ... she needs to get some new wire but its going in her dining area .. we have been working on this area and I can't wait to show you when its finished ! It is awesome!

A Stitchy Spring Vignette


 Happy Wednesday !
Last night I finished stitching With Thy Needle and Threads Springtime Messenger design.. I used mostly DMC floss for the design except for the bird.. and I changed the color of the urn to aqua blues instead of greens..
 I framed it using a church rummage sale frame ( 50 cents) it's pretty chipped up and even has some paint splatter on it ...but I kind of like it that way to go with all the other vintage and chippy things in this basket..I mounted some green check fabric on a piece of needlework sticky board that would fir the inside of the frame on the top .. The frame was too deep to use if I were to traditionally frame the piece.. Just didn't look right. Then I used the sticky needlework board for the stitching and just hot glued it on. It is sitting in an easel on top of a bed of moss in a pedestal bowl..

I also glued the buttons down instead of sewing them .. Then I used a thread from some burlap ..tied little knots in it and glued to the top of each button..

A Little Spring


Good Morning..
I was getting a little tired of all the winter decorations in the house, so down they all came. It is definitely still winter outside !
 I finished the Lizzie Kate 4 seasons spring design .. I am not a purple fan so I changed the purple to off white and yellow.. love it now ! A stack of cover less books tied with twine on top of a pedestal plate is where the new stitchery is..
 I added my flea market cement ducks to the top of the aqua cabinet .. They seem like spring to me !

 This little aqua phot easel frame came from Michael's and its the perfect size for these designs.
I am still working on my galvanized tiered tray for spring.. and I have moved it to the counter instead of the table. I made the Pioneer Womans double Chocolate white chocolate chip cookies yesterday .. they are amazing !
I finished this Country cottage needleworks ornament for the LHN CCN facebook group. Trying to do one ornament a month!
I took back a purse I got for Christmas and bought myself a new Kitchenaid mixer.. the color is aqua sky..Love it.. My old one was black ..it went to live at my daughters house. The first thing we made with it was the pretzel rolls from Mel's Kitchen Cafe.. They are wonderful !
Soon the yard will look like this again ! I am ready !!

February Stitched Chalkboard

 Happy Monday !
Hope you all had great weekends!
I know I am late ..but I didn't finish stitching February's A Year In Chalk until this morning..
 I just had a few stitches to put in it and then mounted it and used the magnet to attach it.
 It's on the chest in the foyer with a cute valentine vignette..
 I had to add a few of the sugar cookies :) and the daisies my daughter gave me for Valentines day ..I have been taking down all the winter decorations in the house..even though it is freezing cold and we still have snow on the ground..I am ready to start decorating for spring !
