random wednesday

saturday we painted our dinner table with chalkboard paint. i thought it would be fun for the kids and make life a little easier for me if they had something to occupy them while i was making dinner, or cleaning the house...  anyway, i love how it turned it out.

pretty black table

the kids having a blast coloring

the finished result!

tannyn has been quite the artiste lately... here are a few of her "pieces"

tannyn took this picture herself so it's a little out of focus... but look at the coloring skills!

i'm especially impressed with this one... i mean, c'mon! she's only five!

i also wanted to let you know that there is a fun little giveaway going on today at nellie loves vintage...
as one of her entries she has asked us to tell her our favorite vintage beauty... i don't have a particular actress or model that is my favorite but i do love these girls....

i collect coca cola trays... and each of these is an original, not a reproduction... they are my vintage beauties!

be sure to check out amy's blog for her great giveaway... and because her blog is just plain rad...i mean, you should see what she can do with an oversized t-shirt!!

have a beautiful "hump" day

Cute idea with the chalkboard paint...I don't think I'd want my one and only table like that tho..but cute.

I didn't know you could do that - paint a table to make it a chalkboard. Does it wipe off clean, so they can reuse it? Anyway - good idea. BTW, which of those trays did I get memory is bad. See, I did comment!!!
