AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

I love the idea of the chalkboard sign. I had a wall painted in chalkboard paint when my youngest son was a small child. Now I have a chalkboard cat that my little granddaughter writes on. Chalkboards are quickly becoming a way of the past with all of the new whiteboards. I prefer the black. genie

Cute little sign. I like the different colored chalks.

a chalkboard sign is so retro! I wonder what was on top that is no longer there?

Looks like it would be a fun, casual place to visit.

A lovely sign, indeed, Gemma, and your words capture the fleeting nature of chalk as a medium! It does look like the sign artist takes pride in the work, however...:)
