Small Transformation on the Kitchen Counter

Oh, it's been such a long time since I posted anything here, I've been on another planet doing this and that. Life has been so busy and time has been limited. I apologise to you all my lovely readers, please forgive my absence.
Well, today I've got some photos to show you. It's just a little change I made on my kitchen counter. I enjoyed making the clay tags ( I used Magic Clay) and transforming the chalk board from a tin board I've had for a while. I simply painted it with black chalk board paint.
The black and white really pop in this space!
I also got an inexpensive glass jar and filled it with rolled oats.
I took more photos while playing with bits and pieces from the linen closet.
I white-washed the basket which I got for a few dollars.
It looks much better now.
I pulled out a whole lot of linen napkins and filled the basket with them, I love the way they look.

The bread box that's been hidden in the pantry came out as well.
When that was done, I got the persimmons out to pose for me, they are a kind of delicious fruit in case you don't know what they are. Apparently the new variety is crunchy and sweet, and they are the improved variety, I love munching on them for a healthy snack. Don't they look beautiful?
Alrighty, I hope you'll have a wonderful rest of the week.
It was good to be here again. Ciao for now!

Welcome back! I like the changes you made. Isn't it fun to change things around and get a different look? The chalkboard is cute. I have some paint but haven't used it yet. I hope my project turns out as well as yours. Shannon
