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!

 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 ! :)

Priscilla,
Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Now this is truly amazing!! What an artist!! LOVE IT!!!

I love your red transferware!! I am slowly taking Winter down through out the house even though we got an inch of ice on Tuesday and now several more inches of snow today. I do put red and blue transferware in the hutch in my Den which I am working on now.....

Hugs,
Deb

It looks wonderful--you are really artistic, Priscilla. And how wonderful that your daughter owns her own home! We are trying to convince my oldest son to take the plunge and buy one, too... It just doesn't make sense to rent too long!
