Kitchen Chalkboard

Well friends, after a week of Springlike weather, Winter came roaring back with a vengeance. No, we don't have the snow and ice others are getting, but it's cold and cloudy. Sigh. Winter, I'm so over you.

Poor trees thought it was Spring and started leafing out:

They'll be all withered by the end of the week.

These thought it was Spring too, so I cut them and brought them inside to enjoy:

Pretty, pretty irises. They were my Mom's favorite flower.

One thing this weather is good for is to work on some projects. Besides the portrait I'm painting, I've been working on my chalkboard for my city house kitchen. I so love my chalkboard wall at the farm, I wanted to have something similar here also. My walls though have too uneven of a texture for chalkboard paint so I came up with a different solution - a large frame that has been sitting in the garage.

I had Bruce cut a piece of plywood to fit then I painted the frame in red (I love red accents!) and the plywood with chalkboard paint,

Hung it on the breakfast nook wall,

and wrote a saying on it.

I hope Winter gets the message!

Have you seen any promises of Spring where you're are?
