Adventures with a Can of Chalkboard Paint

Justin and I have recently fallen in love with this fancy kind of apple juice. Yes, yes, the pure-juice, good-for-you thing is nice, but what we really love is the glass bottle. It reminds us of moonshine.

So, once we'd drunk all the juice, I couldn't bring myself to throw the bottle away... and after a good soak, a bit of a scrub, and two coats of chalkboard paint, we've got a funny little jug for all those home-made drinks I always mean to make.

One of our autumn favourites is Lylabeth's cinnamon lemonade -- so simple to make, just add two sticks of cinnamon to store-bought or home-made lemonade, and let it sit for an hour or two.

Cheers to falling leaves, and the put-on-your-slippers chill!
