Sunday Observations

Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there! Hope you had a great day.

While out to pick up some supplies for my project today, I noticed that this fantastic old neon sign was back in action. Do any of you Vancouverites know what's happening with the Only Seafoods Cafe?

I found a pink Chinese tea tin, and discovered it was a perfect holder for chalk and a chalk brush.




I love green chalkboard paint. Won't be able to write on the door until tomorrow, as it's still a bit damp...and I have to meet mom for dinner ;)

Well that winds up my weekend. What did you all get up to?

Back soon!

I love the green chalkboard! I have a similar door, but in black and really need a nice little chalk holder like yours. That looks perfect.

What a great idea - that door is super cute!

That's beautiful - such a pretty shade of green, much better than boring old black. The tin is perfect with it.

That's going to be so much fun! I've never seen green chalkboard paint before... other than on my old grade school walls.
It looks fantastic!

I would have never thought I would like green chalk paint anywhere after staring at it for years...I am a bit older :) ...but this looks terrific!
