Just because I am getting older...

What used to be an easy thing,
is not so easy anymore.

So I have started making lists.
And here is one of them.

Being a farmer's wife you never know
what animal or "treasure" may come thru
your door.  But this is definatly one of those
treasures that made my heart smile.

My husband grew up on a dairy farm,
and this chalkboard was on the wall of
the old farmhouse kitchen.
So when they were remodling the kitchen
they put this out to the junk pile.
Can you imagine?
So my husband retrived it and
brought it home, unsure of what
I would say about this childhood memory
in our old farmhouse.
I was delighted to say the least and now it is
making more memories and the legacy continues.

Makes you wonder what all was written on this heavy peice of slate
and what pictures were drawn and list made and
words of affirmation shared. Notes of encouragment, HAPPY BIRTHDAY
greetings and menus.

For this week its my menu reminder
{which is subject to change without notice}
And a christmas card holder. 
I am blessed!
I have food to prepare a week of meals,
and I will not worry what we will eat,
God has provided!

Happy Monday to you all,
Blessings to you this week!

Linking up here.

  2. That was so sweet of you to incorporate something from your husband's childhood into your home!

  3. Love it!!! Something about that makes your home feel cozy!

  4. I love chalkboards! And this one has so much character and history behind it. So glad it didn't get dumped! Looks great:)

  5. I love, love, love this chalkboard! The history, the look, the stuff strung across the top- everything! I wish I had one just like it!!
