April Showers Bring May Flowers Chalkboard

 Hope you all had wonderful Easter celebrations with your families ! We had a very nice day and had wonderful weather ! We spent most of the day outside .. I needed to redo the seasonal chalkboard since Easter is over , so I decided to go with  April showers bring May flowers. I figure I will keep it up into May and then change it to something patriotic for Memorial day..
 I used some of the youngest grandsons sidewalk chalk for the raindrops and centers of the flowers for a little color.. hard to get those big pieces of chalk to do what you want them to :)
You can see the past chalkboard designs : Easter .. Spring .. winter .. Christmas ..Fall ..
 I am still loving the chalk painted hutch in the kitchen and wish I would have painted the oak years ago ! The inside is the same pale grey that's on the dining room walls and it looks so pretty lit up !
 I need to make a  new table runner and have some ideas that I hope work out :)
 I was trying to finish up this Rabbit Run cross stitch from Prairie Schooler before Easter , but I just haven't had much time to stitch ..I had seen the chart and thought it was ok, then I saw someones finished project on Instagram and knew I had to stitch it ! Hopefully it gets finished before next spring !
My daughter and I walked to the new forest preserve trail last night and then walked the 2 mile trail with the dogs ..It was so pretty in there ..

Thanks so much for stopping by ! I would love for you to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest , Etsy..all the links are in the sidebar !

Linking to these fabulous parties !

Love the chalkboard art. I use ours for shopping lists so I need to find a new place for those so that I can turn ours in art.

Your runner is darling - love the ruffles!

Love the newest PS WIP, Priscilla. I hadn't taken any special notice of that one either, but seeing yours is making me give it another look :)

Such a cute new chalkboard drawing, too!! Sure hope that saying is true this year--after that long, cold winter we really need those May flowers!
