Chalkboard for Teacher

I've decided I want a chalkboard in my house. Not just a little thinger, I want a big honkin' chalkboard.

Maybe not this big

But a little more like this.
Now all I need is some of this...

and a large white canvas. I think I might even make it pretty by doing some kind of border. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Cake as life

Imagine this. A day without cares, fluffy white clouds, the sun on your shoulders, great hair, a delicious meal, walking without a path, and a pink bubble bath with champagne to end the day. This is what this cake makes me think of. How delicate and delicious it looks. 

{I think I might have to make one. I cannot get cake out of my head lately}

I want to get away from this crappy weather and just enjoy the sun on my skin. I want to feel fresh and renewed and I believe a little happy white room like this would help me feel that way. Look at the sunshine through the windows....ahhh....

I need more!

On my way home from work today, I stopped by PB to check out their sales and peek at their birdie stuff. They currently have a buttload of bird themed objects. Since I'm very much thinking and working on including some birds in the nursery, I couldn't resist.

I usually center my PB visit on the sale stuff because I'm frugal like that. What did I spot today?

Rustic Wood Gallery Frame, 4 x 6", Natural
{Rustic Wood Gallery Frames}

These! I really like the mixing and the matching of frames on walls and these are just so unique. I want to have an earthy natural feel to the nursery and these are definitely earthy. But, here's where it gets good. I spotted them on one side of the store, checked out the price and decided they were not worth the price today. As I made my way around and picked up this...
Bird Embroidered Pillow Covers
{PB bird embroidered pillow}

pillow with the yellow, blue/grey, and coral colored bird (I'm thinking a pillow for the glider), and then stopped to look at other birdie things, I finally made my way to the register. What do I see as I'm standing in line to purchase my one goodie??!! The rustic 8x10 frames with mats for $9!! Apparently, since they lost the boxes for them, they marked them down from $39! Yeah, savings for me!! I found two, but I'm hoping to score one more at this price. They would look so cutie above the modern white crib!!  So, if you happen to pop into your PB and spot an 8x10 rustic wood frame for $9; I would totally love it. Obviously, this won't do me any good if I have to pay an arm and a leg for shipping. So, hey Sacto seen any of these??? Love ya! =)

My New and Best Project...Ever!

I know most of you know, but I'm just so excited and I really can't hide it (The hubby and I always always say this.)

I haven't worked on any new projects at home lately because I've been busy doing something else...

...makin' a baby!

I've been exhausted and unfocused when it comes to house projects for the last three months. It's hard to do anything when our place doesn't need anything really done. Also, my mind is definitely elsewhere. I rather be focusing on a nursery! I am of course chronicling our pregnancy, but I've decided that this blog will still be mostly devoted to decor and craft projects. With that being said...I have a new blog! If you want the DL on the baby bean in progress, please visit me on Rice and Frijolitos
