Hippity Hop Chalkboard

Good morning!
The chalkboard is all set for Spring!
 Nothing screams Spring more than a bunny with a fluffy tail  in a carrot patch with a  garland of tulips and carrots!
 This chalkboard hangs on the wall into my kitchen from the family room.. I bought the frame at a garage sale and had a board cut to fit and painted that with chalkboard paint..

 I erase and redraw for all the seasons and holidays .. So I need to Hippity Hop and get all my chores done!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Spring Galvanized Tiered Tray 2018


Good morning!
Spring has Sprung !
The galvanized tiered tray in my kitchen is all decorated for spring! I don't really decorate for Easter ( we celebrate it) my decor is more Spring so it can stay up until I start the more Summer decorations ..
 A cute little Rae Dunn creamer with the bunny on it that I added a nest to ..
 The cuteness of these chicks! I found them at Hobby Lobby and love them! I placed a Prairie Schooler bunny on the top of the tray .. I got the idea to stitch this on black from Carol at the Stitching Dream blog ..


 A little Spring chalkboard ...


 lots of tulips .. I love the black and white with all the colors added in !
 This little wood bunny was from Walmart last year .. I ripped the button and fabric off the front so it is just plain wood..
 Painted Mason Jars filled with tulips sit behind the bunny ..
 Thanks so much for visiting!

A Truck Full of Chickens

 Good Morning!
Can you stand the cuteness!?!
This is the little truck from the Fresh Eggs Farm Chart! The chalkboard to cross stitch collaboration between Hands On Design and me !
I used a frame from the thrift store.. mounted red ticking on sticky board and then glued that to the top of the frame .. I then mounted the stitching on sticky board and then hot glued that to the ticking.. 

Chelsea stitched this last week and I finished it up for her last night .. It is adorable on the coffee / tea dyed fabric! I made the bow from homespun checks and black ticking.. I then covered a button with red homespun checks.. It is adorable! We hope you will join us in our stitch-a- long with the hashtag #pcfresheggsfarm


she used the Classic Colorworks Barn Door , Gentle arts chalk and dmc 844 for the tires..
I made valentine sugar cookies for my little valentines..I spent a couple days this week taking down all the winter decor.. spring decor will be going up soon! All my farmhouse touches are heading back into the kitchen!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! 
Do you all remember when I got the red rooster chalkboard to put my Country Cottage Needleworks cottage of the month pieces on ?
Well... that didn't last too long! I decided I wasn't crazy about them on there .. I had this tray from a flea market this summer and I wanted to use it for something.. I placed this on top and loved it! I added a pretty black gingham bow and a black homespun check covered button .. some magnets to the back of the stitching and L-O-V-E it! When I stitched the cottage of the month I did change the colors on this one ..and I just added the red stripe ticking to the back of it ..

 So.. I tried the February Prairie Schooler monthly piece on the rooster  chalkboard and loved that too.. so 2 Redo's! They are the perfect size to fit on the chalkboard!
 I will be painting the rooster chalkboard either cream or black as soon as it warms up.. Don't you love them both ?!?
the rest of my Valentine stitching would be the Lovely Home piece I showed you yesterday ..
 February form Lizzie Kate ...so sad that she will no longer be designing .. the February Sampler months from Little House Needleworks and Classic Colorworks.. and you can see the way the Prairie Schooler months used to be displayed ..
 And lastly the February wordplay from With Thy Needle and Thread..

Thanks so much for stopping by ! Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day with loved ones!

Vintage Cupcake Pan Love ..

 Good morning!
I am here to share "lovely Home " from Country Cottage Needleworks .. started stitching this yesterday and finished it up this morning .. For Christmas I stitched another skinny little piece from Country Cottage Needleworks "Tis the Season"and mounted it on this vintage cupcake pan and hoped that this one would also fit!

 I changed the colors to use what I had on hand .. all are shown below.. I was going to do the house red but I might want to leave this out past valentines day and  the aqua will fit into my kitchen better..
 I made a bow with ribbon and ripped fabric and cut hearts with pinking sheers from bookpages ..I attached the hearts with hot glue to a little strip of burlap ribbon
 The stitching is mounted on sticky board on top of a piece of sticky board covered in ticking stripe.. magnets are glued onto the back to attach to the cupcake pan..
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Its Still Winter!


Happy Friday!
I finished up Lizzie Kate's Winter from the Winter Smalls chart last night ..
I just used floss that I had on hand .. all colors shown above..
this is how it looks outside this morning.. about 10 new inches of snow last night and this morning..not complaining at all .. lots of snow makes for green grass :)
 I used the same little chalkboard easel tray that I used for the Autumn smalls
 it's stitched on 28 count tea/coffee dyed Monaco .. I used two wintery picks on the top ..and a magnet and washer to be able to change it out ..This only took a couple hours to stitch up and is adorable ! I used black gingham ribbon with a piece of torn blue gingham fabric for decorations.. A covered button of black gingham finishes off the bow..

It's February


Hello Friends !
Here is February Sampler months from Little House Needleworks/ Classic Colorworks ..there are the thread packs you get with all the floss to complete them.. 
 I started stitching it yesterday and finished it this morning .. these are very quick to stitch !

 I did change up some of the colors.. I did the house in Khaki Mocha and all the other white areas.. Hickory sticks for February and the branches , and muddy puddle for the roof an d windows. I also added panes in the windows with the Cupid color.. It is so pretty! I have it mounted on sticky board and then glued to a black gingham fabric covered sticky board .. A metal washer on the back to adhere to the magnet on the chicken wire box.. and there you have it ! Only 3 months left to do ..March and April and December ..I love having these on display each month!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
