Love's First Kiss
The time was right, the moment clear
All hesitation lost, there was no fear
Faces draw close, breath upon breath
In each other's eyes, anticipation left
That instant so tender, that gentle touch
Wanting forever, love that much
Souls entwined, kiss upon kiss
Forever shall be, my eternal bliss

Tick tock……

My hubby loves clocks, the older the better…..

and he was over the moon excited when he found this English one.

I love the moon dial….it looks like something out of an old story book.

TGIF!!!

 

We have been having a little fall weather this week.

The beginning of the week started off warm then turned

dreary, rainy, and cool!

I guess fall has arrived finally?!?!

Antique slate chalkboard…..

 

 

slate3

A few years ago the former mayor of our town gifted us with a piece of slate used as a chalkboard in an old school. He thought we might like it since we live in an old schoolhouse. We knew right away where we would use it but several years passed and the project kept getting put on the back burner. For years we had a small chalkboard in a gold frame in this spot. The electrical panel for the house is actually on this wall and we use the chalkboard to cover it up. A recent upgrade to a bigger electrical box forced us to dig that old piece of slate out and make a frame for it so we could finally hang it up to cover the new larger box.

My husband used an old piece of trim board he had been hoarding for years. He cut it in half to make this chunky frame for the piece of slate.

The chalkboard has lines etched into the slate. If you run your finger over the line you can feel the groove. My husband tested it out and wrote the first phone number on the chalkboard.

He added a piece of wood on the bottom and made a groove in it to hold the pieces of chalk.The slate chalkboard is a hefty piece…..it took the two of us to get it hung on the wall!!!!!
