Chalkware Fruit vs Mmm Gravy...

While doing listings for a few pieces of chalkware fruit this morning...


...I kept thinking of Grandma B...more specifically her kitchen. I was trying to remember if she'd had chalkware fruit on her walls...they certainly would have fit in very nicely.

However, my thoughts kept turning from the her milk gravy and biscuits. 
Oh. My. Best. EVER!

...and the winners are....

Super happy to see the announcement of the 2013 Benjamin Moore Main Street Matters campaign...and to see Flint, Mi among the winners!!


A big congrats to ALL the chosen cities!  I can't wait to see the results of the University Ave. facelift!!

UPDATE: I visited this neighborhood in late summer and fall 2013...looking for the improvements...and did not find any. I'll continue watching for progress and share it here when some is made.
