If I show you this, you have to look surprised when I show you for real.

 I have really big plans for these pots.  Okay, not like earth-shatteringly big, but bigger than this.  Today I decided to update my photos for the "eat" napkins I sell on Etsy, and I couldn't help but use these little black chalkboard pots, because they were so stinkin' cute!! 
 And the thing is, I'm going to show you what I plan to do with these soon, but this is more or less a mock-up of  something close to that, so you have to promise me that  you'll let me post more photos of the thing I'm going to do, when I'm ready to do that thing.... which isn't this thing, exactly.  Savvy?  (And act all surprised, like you haven't seen them yet, okay?  Thanks.) 
 The sad part, is that I've actually got a few boxes of these two-pack chalkboard pots completed and ready to sell on Etsy, but I just decided to take the month of August off from Etsy, so I'll make you a deal.  If you want any of these, and you email me before the end of this week, (Saturday) at lemonademakinmama@comcast.net,  you can order them directly from me that way.  Otherwise, whatever I don't sell out of, will be listed on Etsy come September 1st.  (Or thereabouts.) They come in a pack of two, and have cute little twine ties around each top.  I have included two pieces of chalk, along with four sticks that have been hand stamped with the names of herbs; thyme, rosemary, basil, and mint so you can choose which you'd like to plant.  (Or plant something else, and use the opposite end of the stick.)  I'm selling each box set for $30.00 plus $10.00 for the shipping, for a grand total of $40.00.
 I've  scribbled little chalkboard numbers on mine.  And I planted thyme and lavender in them.  They turned out so sweet I've been thinking of tons of uses for them.  You could use them as place settings, and put people's names on the pot.  Oh! Or you could use the twine ties to attach one of the pieces of chalk and give them as a gift... tons of options. 

Now I just need to post a bunch of cute photos for myself.  I just have to.  Have I mentioned how much I love taking photographs?  Of anything?  The blogger in me takes over...
