You know what the beauty of pinterest is?
...the vast amount of inspiration!
I am a novice to the whole pinning thing,
really the only thing I have figured out how to do is to repin
but that's o.k. for now because there is so much to oogle over at the pinterest site alone!
It really, really makes me want to do all kinds of fun things to my house!
My favorite boards though, are the word boards... you know, quotes and clever sayings,
the kind that make me say awwwww and especially the ones that make me think.
A few nights ago I was reading all of the good ones that I came across to the family and Duane said we need to have some of those around the house.
So today I obliged his request and wrote one of my favorite on the ENORMOUS chalkboard that Danielle helped me carry in from the barn.
This is chalkboard love people...
I found this chalkboard a couple of years ago thinking that I would sell it.
I love it too much.
It's got the best little wheel like gears that keep it stable,
Today I hung a metal cone full of chalk on the wheel.
I was told it came from a school nearby, I'm not sure about that, but who cares?
It is fabulous!
So when I started seeing all of the inspirational quotes that my family needed to read on a daily basis,
I decided to rescue this beauty from the barn.
You see, because of its size and the fact that this old victorian has more doors than walls
well, I just couldn't get it to fit.
Today I made it fit!
I am still trying to figure out the manual mode on the camera so please bear with me!
I hung a ruffle of burlap ribbon that I poked little lights through for a bit of the light that I
took away by covering up the door.
It is a door to the porch and only one of the 5, yes I said 5 doors in this room!
That wall alone has 2 doorways!
We didn't use the door but I did take away a window.
You know what?
I don't care!
We can fill our minds and hearts with some of the best notes that we will leave eachother
on the chalkboard and look out the other door to see the sunshine!
I can't wait to add more sayings to my
"words to live by" pinterest board!
here are a few of my favorites...
Do you remember this song?
My mom used to sing this to us when I was little.
I have to tell you that as I read it and sang it and heard her voice I missed her more than ever.
you would have loved her...
Do you pinterest? Do you think it's the great time sucker upper that I'm pretty sure it could be?
I have to give myself time limits but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
