Vintage Chalkboard Calendar #2

Hello My Wonderful Chicas! I hope all is well in blogland and in real life too! Today I would like to share with you my 2nd chalkboard calendar creation. A kindergarten teacher contacted me to create this for her classroom. I hope she will love it, as she has yet to receive it. If this snowy winter weather decides to cooperate, hopefully it will be in her pretty little hands by this weekend. I hope she adores it and that she will be the envy of all the other teachers around! As most of you know, I am a lover of vintage things so I thought I might share with you some of the vintage sweets as well as the other goodies included in this calendar...
#1 Tennessee license plate
#2 pencil (thank you Nancy for the fantastic idea!)
#3 Circus font patch
#4 vintage playing card
#5 wood block
#6 vintage red wood block
#7 Jillibean journaling sprouts

The cupcake is Martha Stewart and all the months are created using vintage Scrabble, Anagram & Keyword game pieces. If you would like to see the first chalkboard calendar I created, check out my older post http://curlyqmosaics.blogspot.com/2010/10/vintage-chalkboard-calendar.html. If any of you have some old child chalkboards to sell, let me know! I prefer the ones with all the old vintage imagery. They are extremely hard to find and I am alway on the lookout for more!
As a reminder, I will be drawing for the Star Handbag on Monday, February 14 so you still have a few days to enter! For all the details, please see the giveaway post at http://curlyqmosaics.blogspot.com/2011/02/50th-post-giveaway.html.

Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon!
