Here’s a picture posting just for fun. I started out with a camera to take pictures of our various home made blackboards. You’ll see those as we go along here, too.
Lisl sent this home made card and the little magnet for our refrigerator. A gem for an eye, and two more flowers: on the hat, red, of course!, and in her hand. Bonus of red shoes on her turned in toes. I do miss her and hers. A lot! Snail mail is the best.
Gwen sent me another bouquet of flowers last week.
We enjoy our black boards. Brad and Amy each have one made of chalkboard paint and a plain old board.
So just now, Amy and I have sayings on three of them. This little slate lives on my work table.
Here is Amy’s inspiration board for you. Pretty simple, right?
Dried roses, pine cones and a bird in another corner.
I found Brad’s black board sporting a leviathan. And a tall ship. “Out of the Depths” is written under the monster there. Who knows what he had in mind. But it makes you think. It reminds me of pre-Renaissance superstition. Columbus was brave, wasn’t he? And, of course, Job’s poetry.
I like maps. Brad took this old school map and framed it out with pallet boards. It covers a goodly part of one wall in his bedroom.
