for those who know me, know that i love anything diy. last year i made several, several things for our wedding as well as our new home & i am continuing my love of crafting into this year! my first project of the new year includes my kitchen, a mirror, & chalkboard vinyl.

that’s right! i’m making:

ta-da! a chalkboard menu board!

i found the chalkboard vinyl paper here & tomorrow i will be scouring my thrift store to see what mirror i can find. if all else fails i can shop at our local home store for a brand new floor-length mirror. isn’t that such a fabulous thing for a kitchen? i can’t wait to plan scrumptious menus + write little notes for j or myself. so fun!


while i had menus on the brain i thought i’d look up some recipes {; here are some mouth-watering ones that i came across & will more than likely have j make for next week {ha ha! it helps having a chef in this marriage.}


sweet potato & mascarpone ravioli w. caramelized onions

pumpkin scones

lemon chicken & orzo soup

all of these recipes are perfect for the cold & chilly german days we’ve been having lately; where the snow fall just makes you want to curl up on the couch with a sherpa lined blanket, one of these dishes, & a good book!

>>i will, of course, show you all photos as soon as i get this little project done..{: *stay tuned!*
