Giveaway & Review: Chalk Talk Glasses! (CLOSED)

Have you ever been to or hosted a party and mixed your glass up with someone else's? Or set it down and then forgot which glass was yours? It's the worst! So what if you could just write your name on your glass - just as easy as writing on a chalkboard? Wouldn't that be so much easier?! And how cool would that be, to be able to write everyone's name or nickname on whatever glass they are using? With Chalk Talk Glass now you can! Chalk Talk Glass is a very cool new company run by two sisters in the Boston area. They offer Wine Glasses and Pint Glasses in a variety of different writable Chalk Board styles!

"Chalk Talk Glass started with my sister Sharon and a simple DIY project for an upcoming cocktail party. The initial wineglasses were an instant hit - everyone loved them and wanted to have some for their next party" says Trish Babb, co-owner.

Sure enough small orders from friends and family soon followed and a garage-based business was born. One year and hundreds of orders later, the two sisters decided to launch a “real” business and sell their glasses online!

From a simple chalkboard style "Simple Sally", to paw prints, holly, hearts, shamrocks and hearts, Chalk Talk Glass is sure to have glassware to fit your style! (A portion of the sales from their "Paws off" charity glasses (featuring dog paw prints) are donated to a local dog rescue program! How great is that!) The glasses come in sets of 2, 4, 6, 8 or 12. You can even purchase a mixture of the different glasses too- for even more variety! Want a custom style? Click here to read more about custom requests!

I was recently given the opportunity to review the Great Grapes Wine Glass and it is absolutely beautiful! The glass came expertly packaged and was carefully packed in bubble wrap. This glassware is not just super functional, it's also a work of art! The grape detail is really pretty (it looks like a little jewel!) and the glass is too cute to be put away in the cupboard. I'm in the process of installing some open shelving in my kitchen and I can't wait to be able to have it out on display full-time! The chalk board was easy to write on and can be wiped clean with a simple wipe of the cloth. The glasses are also dishwasher safe (but hand washing is recommended). I love these and would definitely consider buying these for a unique housewarming, bridal shower or wedding present!

Win it! One lucky Frugal & Fabulous reader will win a $30 Chalk Talk Glass Gift Certificate!
