Back to School - Chalkboards!

With the end of August looming, everyone has back to school time on their mind.  Some schools have actually already started - oh "gasp"!

There are so many neat themes around the back to school time, with new clothes, new school supplies, setting up workspaces for your kids, and all the other zillion of things parents have to keep in mind. 

Back to school always makes me think of chalkboards.  Though they aren't really used in the school setting anymore, they are very popular for the home now!  I think 70% of my friends have some sort of chalkboard item in their home (usually in the kitchen).  Here are some of my recently found favorites:

  1. Thank you so much for including me!! I am obsessed with chalkboards and wish they were still used in schools, but for now I will have to settle for placing one above my childrens' desks at home!
