Tiny Chalkboard Love!
They come three in a package at Jo-Ann and have a not-so-cute gold thread as a hanger. Hmmm. So I cut it off and added twine with a glue gun! Now they are perfect! And they were $1.50...for three of them…waaaay cheaper than anything I have seen anywhere else!
Don’t forget that you have to “cure” them like you would any new chalkboard before you can write on them. Simply cover them with chalk and then erase. I just used a paper towel since I didn’t have a tiny eraser! lol
First, a big merci for my sweet friend Pat who sent me these vintage French spools...love them!
Or how about la poire to label this summery green pear?
Or le vin for my little wine vignette…and a chance to show you the fabulous vintage bottle wrapped in wickerwork that I found at Goodwill for only $1.91! I gave you a little peek in a previous post and promised to show you the whole thing. It once held Puerto Rican rum...interesting!
And of course, we must label our bread…le pain…although I suppose it should be le croissant, but that is too long! lol Plus…it’s been a very long time since I have shared my bunny chef. He’s meant to be a recipe card holder, but I like him better with a little chalkboard made from cardboard sprayed with chalkboard paint!
And I'm still loving my shabby pastry dome…made from a candleholder and a cheese dome! So frenchy!
And I cannot forget my petrified croissants…now two years old and still holding up! lol I am having so much fun labeling things! What can I label next?
Hmmm…have I gone too far?
