Thrifted Magnetic Picture Frames

Just a quick note to share how excited I am for these little picture frames! I picked up 12 of them for 10 cents each from a thrift shop last weekend. They are 4 x 6 which is the perfect size for posting pictures and recipe cards on my vintage metal cabinets and magnetic white boards.

Bring Your Buddy to Work Day

Look at this handsome fellow who played in my classroom after school! This is my six-year-old dog, Tony. He is not “officially” registered as a therapy dog but has been excellent at nursing homes and elementary schools.

Homecoming Week Dress-Up Days

It’s time for the big football game tonight and the dance tomorrow.  Homecoming week has been a lot of fun! My personal favorite festivity is the themed dress-up days.  This year the cheerleaders picked “M Day,” “Grandparent’s Day,” “America Day,” and “Disney Day.”

Monday: “M” Day

Tuesday: Grandparent’s Day

Wednesday: America Day
A throwback to my favorite celebrity ever, Rosie the Riveter. 
Thursday: Disney Day
This was a toughie… I found a red bubble dress at Goodwill, cut a hole in the lining, and stuffed it with plastic bags.  I wore a green beanie as a leaf and called myself the poisonous apple from Snow White.

Friday: Red and Gold Day
Just me in jeans and my red and gold Homecoming t-shirt

It was a fun week.  I hope the weather holds out for the game and dance!
