The Writing On The Chalkboard

Hi all!
I haven't been blogging or visiting much lately because I have been under a giant pile of glitter. Working on Halloween non stop. I have some big orders to fill, and I'm trying to get it all done by Friday.
I just wanted to show you this amazing chalkboard I recently found on one of my Saturday morning garage sale expiditions with my daughter Amanda. We go out nearly every Saturday in search of treasure. Sometimes we find it and sometimes not, but this time it was this giant chalkboard. It was already framed in this lovely shade of gray. Amanda kind of coaxed me into getting it, because I thought it was so big, where would it go? Well this is it's new home, and it's fun to write on such a big space. My little statue holds my eraser for me, and I have to vaccuum up chalk dust, but that's OK with me. I have a few smaller chalkboards around the house, but nothing as fun as this one.
Oh yeah, I know you girls love to know the garage sale prices, this was $20. I think that was a great deal considering it is so large and the lady had paid a lot more at a fufu shop.
It's back to glittering, so I will chat with you again soon.
