Why I love my chalkboard...

This is what Duane and I woke up to on Saturday morning... Hannah stayed up later than we did (go figure) and wrote this on the dining room chalkboard for us to see when we woke up!
See why I love my Little Boo?

This is the funny part, and yes we did go to the movies!  :)

and this is a bit of what I have been up to... how cute is that little dachshund with the crown?

a close up of the ruffle and rosette made from black and tan homespun.

It's listed as of this morning, I have been working like a crazy person to get  The Old White House filled up, and today I am making more flowers and really am resisting the urge to start on a new project, like Mom always said...one thing at a time, one day at a time.

Thanks for stopping by, I thought you'd get a warm fuzzy from Hannah's msg.

  10. Hi Theresa,
    I love your chalkboard too. Much better than the messages I get on my chalkboard. Those usually read, "Mom, I need $50 for..." I'd trade my chalkboard for yours anyday!

    It appears I missed a couple posts of yours. Happy Birthday! And I loved seeing Hannah dressed up to go to her first dance. Hope they had fun. Love all yoru creations. I still want you to move across the street! They have a very lovely pasture!!!

  11. What a wonderful surprise to wake up to!! I cherish the "Welcome Home Mom" that is till on my chalkboard...I can't erase it!!

  12. Hi Theresa! What a sweet daughter you have. You must be so proud. That's a very cute tote bag too. This is my first time to your blog and I am your newest follower. I hope that you will stop by and visit me sometime too.

  15. I guess you won't be erasing that message for awhile...if ever! ;-)
    Hugs, Diane

  16. Hi Theresa,
    It's good you got a picture of the message on the chalkboard so you can treasure it (and to remind Hannah of what wonderful parents you are)!
    Love the tote. The ribbon and rosette are just perfect.
    I love your new banner too!

  17. Your bag is adorable, love the ruffle. I bet you were a proud, proud mama waking up to a message like that! Good for you!
