Happy May! It sure feels like summer here already... I'm loving the 80° shorts weather after a cold spell last weekend while our Florida friends were in town. We still had a great time showing them around our neck of the woods...

Growing up in Northern California I never really appreciated the beauty of this place, but now as an adult living here after 10 years away from home, I get it. (though I still miss Florida like crazy...)

Now it's back to work as we tackle a few last minute projects and plan for our housewarming party on Saturday. The kitchen is ready, but I'm in the middle of some living room and outdoor updates for our guests (more on that next week!)

In the meantime, I have a little surprise for you guys. Remember this chalkboard from the kitchen reveal?

This was made by the talented LZ at The Summery Umbrella.

LZ creates a wide range of handmade goods for your home using reclaimed wood.

Everything from frames, to chalkboards, to planters, shelves and even hand painted personalized signs.

I love this whale so much:

and this magnet board...

and this sweet custom sign:

What's great about this shop is that the wood comes in a variety of different color finishes and she can even custom color match. So many possibilities—I wish she was around when I was planning my wedding!

I'm so pleased with the quality of my chalkboard and it has become one of my favorite pieces in the room.

You can pick up your own oversized chalkboard at her Etsy shop here, or if you're feeling lucky... how about a giveaway?

Up for grabs is your choice of one of the following:

Two 8x10 prints of your choice from jennasuedesign.com (up to $20/ea) framed in 8x10 reclaimed wood frames in the color of your choice
