Love Is In.....

The Air.
My dear friend Genise will soon be the mother of the bride this Fall, Adreinne is the blushing bride to be. I'm following Adrienne on Pinterest and I get to see her boards and ideas for their wedding. One of Adrienne's "pins" is a chalkboard I was more than happy to help and needless to say I had all of the crap, treasures, supplies in my basement.

This little cutie is on it's way to South Carolina

I love how this turned out making chalkboards is so easy, have you given it a try yet?
 Now onto my mini-project
I happened to get this cake plate from my mother and it was in need of a little TLC and so I did.

Pretty scary looking

but not anymore.....have you ever tried Bar Keepers Friend?
