Redo Your Crockpot

I am throwing a Fall party this year since we are not going on our annual Salem trip.  I am doing a chili and soup theme which I will show you as it nears.  I will have at least three menu items that will need to be kept warm.  So, that means crockpots.  I found an old one at a thrift shop for 3.00 which looked like it was rarely used but it was still ugly.  I bought it and thought I would take it home and paint it.  When I got home, I looked through my paints and saw the chalkboard paint....lightbulb moment!

Now I have a crock pot I can write on!

And yes I will be making peanut soup.  It is my favorite fall soup and so very good!

I got out my corn silo candy jar.

Because I found candy corn at the store this morning.

And caramel apple pops.

Halloween gum drops!

And more Fall/Halloween magazines.

Now I just need to find time to read them.

I hope I get some good ideas.
