do you remember a while back when i showed you my chalkboard wall in the gift shoppe? no? well, click here to catch up, then come back here and continue reading.

i updated the wall for the winter season about a month ago and i totally forgot to share it with you!  bad michael!

anyway… here’s how it looks right now…

i was inspired by a wall decal i found on etsy a while back. but i can’t for the life of me find it now. sorry about that.

i thought it turned out pretty cute. over the holidays i had a couple wreaths on the windows and swags on the windowsills.

i haven’t received my spring wreaths yet, so that’s just a random sprig of forsythia hanging there, but you get the idea. isn’t that little cat so cute? love him.

and if you haven’t noticed i’ve added some new button/links to the sidebar on the right. i finally updated the about me page. so feel free to give it a read if you’d like.

    I love the wall – would probably love your shop too! Your B&B looks so inviting. We use to have old friends that lived in St. Mary’s for years. They loved raising their family there. I think they now live in the Penn State area.

    This is gonna start a chalkboard window wall phenomenon. I can’t get over how awesome it is. For reals. I can’t keep up with all your stuff that I want to copy, slow down already! (No, not really, keep going, I love it.)

    Hi Michael! Thanks for your nice comment on my blog about my no-sew-chair-cushion chair makeover. I have been reading your blog for the last half and hour or so and I absolutely love it! You have amazing style and I am definitely going to follow you along in your dreamy life as an inn-keeper. Keep doin’ what you’re doin’ please, it’s awesome!
    Sincerely your new blog friend, Ali

    oh WOW – that is amazing. I love it. Wish I had a wall I could go paint RIGHT NOW!!

  • Scrappy Creations at

    It’s funny that you posted this tonight. I have a HUGE chalkboard out in my barn that is ugly green. Tonight I told my husband I was going to paint it with black chalkboard paint, frame it with some wonderful vintage trim and hang it in my office. I’ll let ya know when I get it done (will be awhile)

  • Stacey at

    GASP! I love it sooo much!

  • Donna at

    this is so fun! I don’t think my BF would appreciate it much if I wiped out his friends’ drawings/scribbles on our chalkboard wall for this though :P

  • Camille at

    That wall and your drawing is nothing short of amazing. Good, good work, I say.

  • Brandi at

    Absolutely love it! I want one! But I’d need you to come draw an adorable little picture like that, ha ha! Great job.

  • Taija at

    Wow!! I am so glad that you were featured on Someday Crafts!! I am so impressed/inspired!! I love your blog and artistic style. I’m followin’ you for future inspiration! You’re so talented, so amazing! I just painted my FR wall with eggshell black paint. It works kinda like a chalkboard… I’m thinking some fun stuff should appear on it from time to time!

  • Rita at

    That is so cool. I used to have an old school-type chalkboard in my dining room and aspirations of filling it with something that looks as great as this, but I was never able to. Feeling inspired to maybe try again. Thanks for the great idea–

  • Mary Lemon at

    Oh my gosh . . . this is one of the coolest chalkboards I’ve seen. You are amazing. I wish I could draw like you. Mine would never come out like that! One of my frustrations with chalkboards is that I have a hard time writing with the chalk and haven’t been able to find chalk pens in my town. Do you use regular chalk or one of the newer pens? Glad I found your blog. Very fun!

  • Lei at

    Incredible idea… so very clever! love it!

  • 16 Sassy Street at

    Love the chalk board wall!!! So clever with the windows! Also love your poem, IF THERE WERE EVER A TIME TO DARE. It really spoke to me at a very perfect time :)

  • Kay Ellen at
