Chalkboard Painted Vase

I had a can of chalkboard paint lying around and I decided to make a little chalkboard paint vase.  I picked up this little gem from the thrift store for $1.99.  It’s pale green in color.  I like the dark black chalkboard paint against the light color of the vase.

Who is Minnie? Minnie is my cute little grand-pup (on the right side of the doggie pic below).

Who is Karl? He is the big golden retriever who lives behind us.  They bark at each other all the time – it’s so darn cute!

I couldn’t get a good picture of Minnie and Karl together, so Lola had to do. Lola is the puppy my daughter fostered for 3 weeks – isn’t she super adorable?


Seriously, super adorable!  Lola was about 6 weeks old in this picture and Minnie is 3.

Minnie thought she was getting a sister....but Lola adopted out quickly.  Imagine that!

Whiteboard paint has several productive uses. This is one of them. Apart from using it on vase, you could use it anywhere you want. Could also use on your wall and convert into a chalkboard. It is very useful for person having kids at home. By applying this you don't have to worry about about walls. Now your children could draw or write freely on walls.

The Forum in Rome Italy

If you visit the Colosseum, you have to see the Forum – it’s literally right across the street. The forum known as the Forum Romanum looks like a disorderly collection of ruins and rock that can make the imagination run wild.  Just look around and try to imagine what it looked like all those years ago.  Remains of many buildings from different periods are visible.  The forum used to house temples, basilicas and arches.  The area is massive and is a must see site if you ever get a chance to visit Rome. The forum is “ one of the most important archaeological sites in the world ." Three thousand years ago, this valley, which was to become the future social and political center of one of the greatest empires of ancient times, was submerged in marshland.  By an incredible invention of engineering, a canal that is still in function to this very day, allowed for the drainage of the land. The area soon began to develop and by the end of the 7th century BC, it was home to many mark
