T'was a lovely idea...


In one of my first ever posts when I started this blog, I mentioned my love of subliminal signs around the house.


Well, today, I bought a cute chalkboard for the kitchen from Candle and Blue, St Johns Street, Bury St Edmunds – so now I can write my own subliminal messages to my family. T'was* £8.99.

I have a romantic idea that it will be used for quaint shopping lists like this...



In real life it is more likely going to be used to hurl abuse, such as this...


Total spent today: £8.99.





* I've been using the word 't'was' an unusual amount today, even on the email to clients. It would seem I've turned into a Charles Dickens character overnight! How untoward!

ps. The people at vouchercodes.co.uk contacted me with some great discount vouchers available from their site. I've listed some of the best ones in the column on the left. It is well worth a look if you are buying anything online or eating out, every little helps!

How cute! I'm sure it will be used in some form or another. You should get colorful chalk for it!

oooh, I would love to get some coloured chalks, just can't seem to find them anywhere! Can't even find white, hence the photoshopping text onto them for the time being!

That's a cool idea... maybe I can get one for the house too.

I love the chalkboard but think it would be too dangerous in our house - best to keep out thoughts inside our head methinks (another great word!).

I really like your blog. And love the idea of the chalkboard...great for when inspiration strikes or when you just want to tease siblings/family or even to just write the shopping list.

Great idea, thanks for sharing :)

I used to have a chalkboard when I was a child. It wasn't as nice as this one though.

I love chalkboards and other various message boards - I have one in my bedroom to satisfy my need for excessive list-making and cute mantra-writing! xxx
