Fabulous Friday Finds...



Chalkboard
    Old School turned Modern

First called blackboards, the chalkboard has been around for centuries. It was the invention of James Pillans who was the headmaster of a High School in Scotland. He came up with the board and the chalk to teach geography.  

By 1801 the chalkboard was introduced to the United States, where it became tremendously popular in schoolhouses.  

Since then the chalkboard has come a long way.  I've seen some trendy products out there which is either made with chalkboard, or other chalkboard-like materials. Of course this got me wondering what kinds of unique chalkboard products are out there. So off to Etsy I went where I found some really cool items.
     
This week all of my chosen items are either handmade.  Each item is numbered, and a direct link to each Etsy shop are listed below the collage, if you'd like to see more from a particular shop.

Enjoy!







Be sure to stop back at 12PM US EST today for 
week ten of my "NO RULES Weekend Blog Party" 
which continues to grow a little bigger each week!
