The chalkboard tree is full of so many pretties!

Included in those pretties is this cute ornament from the Holly Jolly Farm ( my chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration with Hands on Design) you can see more of that chart here 

Chicken Joy has also made it on the tree and you can find the free chart here 
and the Handsome Sam peeking around the tree ..
Can you stand the cuteness of these two <3 There are ornaments from Hands on Design .. Heart In Hand and our Chicken Joy .. The quilt details.. here
This is a 6 foot white pencil tree from Target a couple years ago .. It sits on a wood crate to make it taller .. Bottle brush candy canes ,, red check ribbon .. black check ribbons .. a red gingham star tree topper and chalkboard ornaments that I made with wood shapes ..


The tree sits next to the hutch in the kitchen and its skinny shape is perfect for this area .. I am loving my kitchen all decorated for Christmas! You can see more of the Santa Tiered tray here

The Red Truck Tree And Two New Ornaments!

Happy Wednesday! 
I am here today with my Red truck carrying a tree ..tree! Which has kind of morphed into any vehicle carrying a tree...tree :)
This tree is one of 2 trees that is surrounded by the Christmas village .. the trees sit up on one of the Christmas bins for the village to go underneath . 

the 2 new ornaments are the little truck from Holly Jolly farm ( my chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration with Hands on Design ) you can see more about that here  
and bringing home the tree just the car portion from Lori Holt ..to which I added Calvin ..Piper and Ronnie .. with Santa driving .I just free handed the riders and I thought they all turned out super cute! I stitched it on 32 count Barnboard check Lugana .. Did you fall off your chair that it wasn't monaco ? :) I used Classic Colorworks  Ribbon Red , Bamboo.. English Ivy .. Black Coffee ..Eggshell( santa's beard) Rainshower and Pine Needles ..for the pets I used scraps 
I mounted the stitching to sticky board ..with 2 layers of batting . I also mounted red ticking stripe fabric to sticky board and glued the 2 pieces together .I then added a ruffle of white with red ticking stripes to the back of the red ticking stripes . Both of these fabrics are in our finishing bundle available here   I added a buffalo check ribbon bow to the top and a little tree farm sign

The truck and Ronnie from Holly Jolly Farm ..I stitched on 28 count evenweave black .. I used Classic Colorworks ribbon red.. spinach .. bamboo .. and brown sugar for Ronnie ..
Ronnie loves here ornament and so do I ! I mounted it on sticky board with batting underneath .. I added red chicken wire fabric to sticky board and glued the two pieces together . I mounted black gingham to sticky board and attached the truck pick ( Michael's) to the top .. I used a piece of red / white bakers twine for the hanger .
***Please remember if you copy my finishing ideas that you be considerate and give a link to my blog or facebook page..****
The tree has burlap Merry Christmas ribbon woven through .. trays and plates that I have turned into ornaments .. A Christmas Tree Farm arrow .. a truck with a tree in the back .. lots of Rae Dunn inspired ornaments made by Chelsea .. buffalo plaid ribbons and lots of vehicles with trees on top! I made the topper out of book pages and buffalo check ribbons .. This is one of my favorite trees and I just love having two new stitched ornaments on it! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Chalkfull Snowy

Good morning!
I am so excited to be able to show you the next Chalkfull .. This is Snowy .. my chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration with Hands On Design !
Snow people fill the mason jar this time with the cutest little faces..
 and the small piece has 2 snowmen out braving the snowstorm

I used the same enamel pieces I have used for the whole series that are from Hobby Lobby ..
you will love this with all the colors of winter ! In my house after Christmas comes the snowmen to stay out until Spring arrives .. and I call that Snowman Season :) 

I mounted my piece on sticky board ,, mounted white fabric with red polka dots ( it is in our Christmas finishing bundle ) then added a black gingham ruffle .. The bow is made from red polka dot ribbons .. black ticking stripe ribbon .. and a snowman ornament from Hobby Lobby..white glittery picks were added into the bow ..
and of course magnets added to the piece to attach to the metal enamel stand .For the small piece I used the enamel bucket .. mounted the stitching on sticky board with 2 layers of batting underneath ,, then added a heavily gathered polka dot ruffle to the underside of the stitching . I used Beelori's vintage trim in Cayenne and the smaller size in Cloud over the top of the red .. A ticking stripe bow ,, covered button and white glittery picks top it off ..

the chalkboard the design was charted from ..
all the Chalkfull's so far .. Harvest, BooMerry and Snowy .. 3 more to come!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
