blackboard decal

Some weeks ago, Melissa at Suger Coat It  had a giveaway featuring fridge decals with a blackboard type surface. All we had to do was leave a comment.
Well of course I wanted one, so I left a comment and hoped the random generator thingy would pick me.

And it did!!
Woo-hoo!!

Some time later, the decal arrived in my post box and then it sat on my desk for a few days before I fianlly got around to clearing other stuff off my fridge to make space for it.

Here it is, on my fridge.


I have chalk* in my home, so I was able to use it immediately for my shopping list.

It cleans off easily with a damp sponge and I'm finding that a lot more convenient than the laminated list I had there previously, which cleaned off with a dry cloth but left dark smudges which would only come off properly with polish remover.

* I've kept chalk around for years. It's great for little kids to draw on the driveway and carport surfaces, and washes off there with a broom and a hose, or just leave it to wear off with successive rains.

  2. Looks very stylish indeed. The frame reminds me of an old fashioned mirror frame :-).

  3. I see you're being all fancy, buying serviettes instead of just using your sleeve like we do. (kidding mum!)

  4. mybabyjohn; I'm loving it.

    windsmoke; the frame is one of the reasons I like it so much.

    no-one; A sleeve is not a kleenex! Serviettes are so much bigger than tissues and cheaper too.

  9. Plasman; chalk is still around. I used to get the buckets of jumbo chalks when the grandkids were little, then smaller chalks for the inside blackboard as they grew up a bit.

    EC; very useful. I write my roster on there too sometimes.

    Chez; the look of it is what drove me to enter.

    Red Nomad; phone photo...
    or I'll copy it onto the bigger list that I have on a notepad. The bigger list is where I write things that I've used/opened the last of, the fridge list is where I scribble down new items for recipes I want to try, or just stuff that occurs to me as I'm looking in the pantry.
