My Fall Chalkboard

Below you will find
a gift from
my husband
and kids....
(although, apparently, he
doesn't remember because he
asked me-
Where did you get THAT)
Yeah-it was that special
of a purchase.

It is made out of an old window
and came from a little store

located here in
Green Bay, WI.

Here are just a few of
the wonderful items
you will find there.

Purses and handpainted items....
Birdhouses and things for outside...

And things that cause you to pause...

But...sadly for YOU...
I got the best thing in the store...

And, although you know that I
am not the best picture taker in the
world (yeah- I know, I know)
I think you can see the beauty
in this old window..
that has been repurposed..
and hangs in  my kitchen
for the
Fall Season.
Overall - It looks like this..
This is a bit better picture
of the bottom part...
A little further away it looks like this..

But for me-
This says it all...
Forgive the chicken scratching
at OUR house we have to
use the chalk as quick as
we can and then
because otherwise it
ends up here
looking like this...
Nice hair, huh?;>)
your photo name

I love it! Whoever painted that is so talented and I love the free flowing feeling from it. Like it's just floating by.
Hope you have a good day and that you are feeling well.
Been up most of the night, but the coffee maker just kicked on and DH will be up soon. Maybe I should start cooking breakfast and then I am heading back to bed for a bit.
He's been tossing too much to sleep.
