Chicken Wire Memo Boards

 Being fairly new to creating posts I am getting, so, inspired by so many other great writer's that I am coming upon in "blogland!"

Just today, I saw this gorgeous memo board made by Amanda from 

Isn't it a beauty?
I love the soft, neutral color scheme and how she actually thought to use the earrings to attach the photos...I have several boards with earrings displayed, why did I not think of something so obvious?
See how blogs can be so inspiring?
Hop over to her beautiful blog  One Girl in Pink and be sure to tell her that I sent you!

So, seeing her beautiful creation reminded me that, duh, I made a pretty nice one a little while ago, too....why not make a post to show my version?
It's a whole lot country with a little bit of "glitz!"

~ My  French Country Chicken Wire Memo Board ~

I borrowed it for a photo shoot in my kitchen.
Fits in pretty nicely, doesn't it?

 Just practicing my shots and photo editing!

Love my brown transferware plate for fall.
Can you see the acorn heart around the candles?

My "glamorous" Piggy.

And closeups of the painting on my beautiful washstand!
A little history on my washstand.
 Besides being an absolutely gorgeous, 1800's, Victorian beauty it is my very sentimental favorite. My "honey" bought it for me and inscribed  a "forever memory" inside the drawer!
that's all for now so, 'til next time...
Love, Hugs & Kisses,

Yes, that is a great chicken wire memo board from Amanda, Janet. I love yours, too! I did one myself about a year ago; my daughter called dibs on it. : ) Love the fabric you used.

Hi JP! Thank you so much for featuring my chicken wire board! I love yours too, and the blingy clothespins are so great! You've inspired me to create a few of those for my board, too!
Best Wishes and Blessings,

Your transferware plate is to die for and the acorn heart around it completes it. It would be fun to see in person. I also love that your sweetie inscribed the drawer for you. 100 years from now on "Antiques Roadshow" someone will read that endearment and wonder all about you!
