Classroom decor 2011

Here are our fall Decorations- we did thankful turkeys, pumpkin glyphs and a reading wall with corn! It was adorable if I do say so myself.

Also I decorated for Winter. I tried to use snowflakes and snowman so it could carry over till Valentines. The long bullentin board had a snwostorm of good work which I displayed students work. We had snowman glyphs and the palm trees even got covered in garland for winter. The students really enjoyed it and we even made snowflakes to hang from the ceiling.

Hope you enjoyed our Fall/Winter Decor. I will post 2012 decor soon.

2011 Thanksgiving & Christmas!

So I just realized I never listed holiday pics an we had our first thanksgiving here this year! So here are the pics of turkey day and my fav season Christmas!

Spring is blooming in the E Casa

So that I have caught yall up on all the changes inside the house with moving funiture over spring break I wanted to share with you the spring decor. I tried to not make it too themey for easter this year so it would be an easier transition into summer. The first pic you can see I brought out my fav home goods pillows. I just adore the fabric on these with the green, blue, browns, whites and pink. I think they are such great pillows for the warmer months and speak HAWAII!!  In addition I just added my SPRING blocks on the fireplace. In the entry which you will see down below.. I added my easter egg feather wreath, my glass cloche with knock off PB moss bunnies, and blocks that are easter themed. Also on the coffee table is a huge beautiful milk glass bowl my grandma gifted to me and I placed a candle with some eggs in it for spring. Here is the den view.
In the kitchen I kept it simple with greenery on my turquoise stand & Spring has sprung on my chalkboard. On the table I have a turqouise stand filled with moss and eggs and surrounded by vintage cottage chic bright colored candles. The runner is actually two smaller runners that I connected. I think it adds a nice pop to the kitchen.
Not to much changed in the dining room
 except I stole the old drum shade on the bar to put in the formal den for my grandmas light. So I just picked up this shabby chic one at Walmart.. yes walmart. I like all the print on it.. very vintage!
Here is the closer view of the entry way. I am starting to notice I gravitate towards blues and oranges.. maybe I like orange?? Hmm new concept.. maybe in small doses??

Hope you enjoyed the spring tour! Talk soon on the spring tour of the outside we have been working our tail off out there.
