A Chalkboard and a Spring Vignette

Happy Sunday !
I have wanted to show you this upcycled chalkboard for a few weeks ,  This photo frame below used to hang above my desk.. It was in the foyer before we remodeled ..then it came into the family room.. I wasn't crazy about it but I loved the frame:) 
It originally came from Hobby Lobby ( they still sell it) about 5 years ago. I took out the glass and the "family mat" and there was a piece of pressed board ..so I painted it with chalkboard paint.. I want a boxwood wreath to hang on it , but until I find one I drew one :) I used a little sticky dot to hang the burlap bow .. I am loving this frames new look !
It is hanging above the sofa table in the family room ..which now is decorated for spring .

Last year I stitched this  Rabbit Run from Prairie Schooler ..I just mounted it and stuck it in this frame.. Not sure if this is where it will stay ..but for right now it's the best I have got for it :)
 A Fitz and Floyd bunny plate and the little bunny cross stitch ..There is a link to the free pattern..
 A moss bunny in the wrought iron cloche..in an urn and the 2 little spring vegetable stitcheries I got last year at an Estate sale for $1.00


 I am loving Rabbit Run ...so anxiously awaiting this years new Prairie Schoolers !



I have been stitching Prairie Schooler R is for Rabbit to add to my spring decorations..

 It was so nice again this month to just pull out these March pieces and not have to stitch them first ! But I am kind of missing stitching them !! I am waiting not so patiently for this months Year In Chalk design to show up in my mailbox! Hopefully I will be showing you that soon :)
 If you would like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

Hi Priscilla! Oh, how I love your chalkboard. You're the most creative one. Love the vignette below it too. You always make pretty.
Be a sweetie,

I love your chalk board art! I have a window I have been debating putting a chalk board into and you've inspired me to stop doubting it! I love it you are an amazing artist!
