A Very Simple Project...An Irish Blessing...

With St. Patrick's Day this week, I began to think I would like to have an Irish blessing in my home.  There are so many wonderful ones...you can Google it, or look on Pinterest. 
There are lots of printables and I thought I might print one out and frame it.  But then I noticed the big, blank chalkboard in our entryway (yeah, I'm smart like that lol) and decided it was the perfect place.

The verse I found really spoke to me, and made me think differently about the crowded gatherings in our home...

Using a big frame found inexpensively at an antique store, this chalkboard was created for my daughter's wedding.  It has ornate, chippy styling and is a fun keepsake...

I wrote the verse with simple printed and cursive writing...nothing fancy...it's not something I have a lot of skill with.

As I said...a VERY simple project, but one that I am very happy with!

Until next time...

  12. Sometimes simple is the best, and love the saying. I think I have the worse handwriting/printing in the world...so when I try something like this it looks terrible. It is a perfect saying...

  15. I love your simple handwritten message on your chalkboard, Linda! It's got a great chippy frame, too, and a nice history of being used for your daughter's wedding. I wish I had a big (empty) wall to hang a big chalkboard like yours!
