Chalk it up!

It had to happen sooner or later...  chalk paper or chalk paint.

I resisted.

I gave in.

And I have to say.. it was fun.  :-)

I especially love the chalk paints!  Must play more with those!!  Chalk it up to fate.  Pun intended!

So this is a grateful shout out to Thrifty Decor Chick for this most excellent idea.

I love the containers in my kitchen.  And I love that I am not stuck with the label -- I can make it whatever I put in to it.  Sweet.

Oh...  Notice my whole wheat flour is about to expire?  Got any great ideas how I could use it up rapidly??

Participating in...

On average, I think I have a 10% success rate -- one in every 10 trips results in success when I go thrifting.  Is that because I don't look the the right places or I just don't have a practiced eye?


A nice, medium-sized covered dish that washed up nicely.


A practical, medium-ish-sized bowl for ... whatever.

4 plates for $12

Couldn't resist despite the price.  :-)

What do you think?  Like my finds??
