Jealousy issues

I swear I have Jealousy issues..

Its not that I don't try.  I mean... I really try.

And now this is the second post in a row that talks about KariAnn at Thistlewood Farms.. 

But, have you seen her beautiful blog?

Do you blame me?

I think its a jealousy thing.  because when I saw THIS.. I couldn't get it out of my head.

I searched and searched for something so grand and fantastic

on the side of the road. At people's houses. In the re-store. I tried.  I really did.

But I have jealousy issues. I couldn't just let it go...

and I guess its better than the alternative because I swear if that Farm wasn't all the way in Kentucky...

and now I have my very own big beautiful organizational reminder on my very own wall.


(BTW.. this thing is HUGE!  seriously 4 1/2 feet by 5 1/2 feet.  Made with 1x4's and 1x2's and homemade chalkboard paint.. tutorial anyone?)

Linking up to East Coast Creative Creating with the Stars! This is an amazing competition. Go check it out! The submissions are fantastic!


  1. Nanette,

    LOL! You are the best! I love your giant looks amazing. And you are welcome for sweet tea on the porch any time!


    1. Oh Karianne, Thanks for being so great to be jealous of.. If I'm ever in Kentucky...

  2. How clever of you to recreate Kari's beautiful chalkboard calendar! Yours looks absolutely amazing!

    :) Linda

  3. Love this, you did a great job re-creating Karianne's board! I don't have luck like her finding beautiful things beside the road either so thanks for an idea on how to do it!

    1. Thanks Pendra! .. Never have that kind of luck so we've had to learn to be creative around here.. It turned out awesome! I think a tutorial is in order...

  4. Thanks for stopping over from ECC! You should totally give the pendant a go. I was really very quick and easy! You did a great job recreating Kariann's calendar!
