Met Monday and sick

Met Monday is coming up and I am posting this a bit early since I am not feeling well and don't know how I might be feeling later.

First of all, aren't all of you guys simply sick, sick, sick, of everyone telling you about their chalkboard making experiences????? I mean, really, how many ways and types of chalkboards do we need to see!!! It is as bad as the burlap take over or the painting cloths from Home Depot being transformed into curtains, sofa covers and etc.!!! WELL, I GOT SO SICK of it I had to DO something about it!! YUp....you know what is coming....I HAD to DO a CHALKBOARD. UGH....you say, not another one!! yup..it is spreading.......

I found my above calandar holder in a closet when I was cleaning this week and I painted the chalkboard paint on it which I found at Walmart.

It is in the kitchen.....yup, another kitchen blackboard! When will this conflagration ever stop!!

I wrote some
"family rules"--an idea which I got from another blogger--things I like to be reminded of daily (especially while washing dishes!)

Above is where I like to be when I am feeling under the weather as I am now (and not from the chalkboard!)

One more change I did this week is to put a different tablecloth on this and other tables and move some stuff around in this room . I am not going to show it all now.....But the CAT--Bishop Boots-- would not allow fake flowers on this table. He kept going up there!!! I think he would have learned that they were fakes, but he was probably smelling some real ones I had elsewhere. I gave up and put a teacup in its place---it looked better anyway. Perhaps Boots is a future decorator???

Yikes that sign was supposed to say expert not export! HA!! Fooled or fouled again!

  1. Oh NannyKim!
    Such a sweet post. I love your chalkboard in its place of glory. I really do. I love all the little Faily Rules, especially: Dance in the rain, and enjoy God. So beautiful truly.

    I love the red tablecloth you put on the table. It looks so festive and ready for the holidays. Just beautiful.

    And lastly, I especially love Boots. I believe she is going to be an Interior Decorator for sure. She is to much.

    Thanks for sharing today. I have so enjoyed my visit. Country hugs sweetie, Sherry

  4. Hi Kim
    Yet another chalk board indeed lol
    I can strike the first thing on your list with a smile : )
    I had a boots kitty too! He was adopted out from our rescue network. He was called boots of course because of his little paws that looked like a little pair of boots.
    Happy MM and Blue Monday (that's what I did today)
    Love Claudie

  5. Well, I have had the chalkboard paint for months. And still haven't done anything with it! So I applaud you! I will probably be the last in line to have a chalkboard. But I love yours and like just where you put it. Still in love with that table you've got in there!

  6. Hi Kim
    I like the house rules you wrote on your chalkboard! Your chair near the woodstove looks like a perfect place to relax and be cozy. Hope you feel better soon.

  8. Sorry you're not feeling well! Hope you're better soon. I got such a kick out of your post--chalkboards really have taken over the blogs, haven't they? I think yours looks great, though--and I like the house rules, too! :)

  17. Sorry you aren't feeling well, it seems hard to avoid the bug these days. I haven't done a chalkboard project. I don't know where I'd put one...but, I do like yours. Sue

  18. I hope you feel better.
    I love chalkboards too. I painted and framed one right on the wall, floor to ceiling in the kitchen by the phone. It's great for writing numbers from voice maessages.

  28. An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do think that you ought to publish more about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but typically folks don't speak about such topics. To the next! All the best!!

    Stop by my site ... diets
