As many of you know-I collect things. A lot of things! One of my favorite collections is chalk boards, especially old vintage school boards.

However, I like chalk boards that are not even square or rectangle.  I came across some old metal trays in the basement while I was putting away some of my Christmas decorations.  I thought they would make nice chalk boards with some winter quotes on them to go with my Winter Bliss decorations in the house.  clean an old tray, and let it dry for a couple of hours. Buy black chalk board paint, at YOUR LOCAL hardware or home improvement store, and white  chalk. Put 2 coats of chalk board paint on the flat surface of the tray-let dry.  write quotes that reflect the season we are in. I put on my chalk board tray, “Snowflakes are like Butterflies in Winter”, and then I put my snowflake glasses on the tray.
