Good Stuff!....

My hubby's been away....
I'm sure you know what that means....
time to "play"!

I don't know why, but around here it always seems like
it's easier to get things in order when someone is gone for
a few days.  For some reason the routine changes 
just enough to make it easier to 
change things up,
even if it's just a little bit!

 I saw these labels in a magazine not too long ago....
the latest one I'm sure.  So, I went on the hunt to find them
and there they were at Staples. They come in different sizes
and shapes.  Easy peasy chalkboard labels!

An idea I have seen all over blogland 
last winter mostly
is what I was going for....

But first I needed some jars....
not too big, not too small....

But just right.....
you know, to hold the 
good stuff!

Since the temps are changing,
it's time to get out the Cocoa Bar....
with all the fixin's!

Don't forget a cute cup and saucer....
to hold the tasty
brown sugar and cinnamon scone!

Now doesn't this look better then a bag and a box?
I think so too!
Do you have a Cocoa bar set up?

Thanks for stopping!
Hope your weekend is a Great one!

I decided to join the party....go check them out!
Sunny Simple Sunday
A Favorite Thing Saturday


  1. That is a very nice idea :)
    I'm sure that my granddaughters would love to see a coco jar in grandma's kitchen.
    I have been enjoying your photos of the Grand Hotel. I have always wanted to go there. My niece and her family have been going up for that run that they have every year across the bridge.
    Maybe I'll just have to plan a trip back home and include a stay at the Grand Hotel. It looks so elegant.

    Have a lovely autumn weekend.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  2. Not yet, but you're reminding that I did have one last year!

    Thanks for the tip about the chalkboard labels, too!

    Everything is looking very cozy on your kitchen counter.

  3. Love your cocoa bar. I didn't know there was a chalk board sticker out there. My mind is ticking....neighbor gifts???

    Lisa, I thought you were on our blog roll and I realized you aren't. Since I reactivated my blog and started over last year I've realized, over time, many of my former blogs I followed I missed. All taken care of now :)

  4. Oh that looks so good! Is it a homemade hot chocolate recipe?
    I need to buy some of those chalkboard labels. I recently put all the stuff for
    laundry needs in class jars or bottles to make it prettier....

  5. Hi Lisa! What a cute idea and yes, it looks great and so does your cute little Fallen angel and that cup!
    Thanks for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  6. This is right up my alley as I am a lover of hot chocolate! I cheated this year and started drinking it in September. Love your cocoa bar.

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  7. Very nice and easy too. Stopped by from Sunny Simple!

  8. What a cute idea! I saw those labels in a magazine and I want some also!!! Love your little vignette!!
    hugs, Linda

  9. I love this idea. I had never seen chalkboard labels before. They are now on my list.


  10. Perfect for the cold nights ahead and cute too! I am now following your blog from Favorite Things and look forward to reading. P.S. I have older daughters too 19 and 22.

  11. Cute idea! Those chalkboard labels are so nice...I think I'll have to make a stop at Staples! BTW, found you through your link at Mockingbird Hill Cottage. :-)

  12. Very cute! Love those little chalkboard stickers. Your home ALWAYS looks so cozy Lisa.

  13. Very clever....I have to add these labels to my list of things to buy. Thanks for sharing this awesome idea.


  14. The labels are great. Haven't seen them so far and might go hunting. They look beautiful on the jars. Enjoy your hot chocolate. Regula


I would enjoy hearing from you!
