Hi friends!  I finally got back into my classroom with the good camera to take some pictures of the tree my mom and I constructed.  


I am using it to post my standards.  And it is now the focal point of the room.  



I laminated the owls and then cut them out in the profile of the owl.  I hot glued a clothespin to the bottom.  I thought I could always add more if needed but I try to stick to one standard at a time for each subject.  


Here's the view from the door.


The hubby and I got back from Charleston this past weekend.  We loved it!  I will leave you with a few pics from the trip.

Can I live here??? ;)

I feel like all we did was eat!  This is Five Loaves Cafe!  It's adorable and really good.  I also loved Hominy Grill.


If you haven't been, you need to check it out if you love old southern cities.  Have a great night everyone!!!




I made myself start working on my classroom last week.  We are going on vacation next week, so I wanted most of it finished before we go.  I had this lamp in my room that didn't look too terribly bad, but it needed a makeover.  I wish I had taken a before shot.  It was a brown color and needed a bigger lamp shade.  So, I bought some trusty ole spray paint and here is how it turned out.



I used Krylon's watermelon spray paint.  It only took 2 coats.  I LOVE how it turned out.  I picked up the shade at Target.  


Here is a little peek at my desk:


It is not yet finished.  I will post pics when it is.  I moved it across the room and the bottom is wrapped in paper with border attached to the bottom.  I used different sized tissue paper flowers in the corner. I took the paper all the way to the floor to make the desk appear larger.   

Here is the before: 




And this is a peak at how I covered the window above my outside door.  It's just paper with borders attached to the bottom hanging on a tension rod.  I am not sure how I feel about it yet.  I couldn't find a curtain I liked and I can't sew, so this is what happened!  I will have to take a picture at night when I'm not competing with the sun.

I have gotten a lot done but still have so much to do!  I got my tree finished so I will post it next.  Happy Wednesday! {TIFFANY}
