Groovy Classroom

I'm using my favorite 60's-70's theme for my classroom this year again. I have many new ideas including these really darling paper plate creations. Can't you just see them in psychedelic colors?
I found them on One Pretty Thing and then linked to the directions. Creative Jewish Mom
makes some really great things. I'm really enjoying her site.

A Little Brown Adds Interest

I've had these prints for years. I loved the weathered look of the frames, but then I bought this print for the bathroom.

I really like the fresh modern look of the brown. So I decided to mix things up a bit. No white, no cream, no black. Shocking I know. LOL.

Isn't that an attractive picture?
Out came the spray paint by Rustoleem. I really enjoy the fresh look of everything. It pops against the beadboard in my cottage bathroom.

I had to take a close up of this storeage solution. I bought them at QVC about ten years ago and I love them! They can hang horizontal or vertical. Please tell me what you think of the changes. I little paint make everything seem new again.

Bird Linky Party

I decided to join the Feathered Friends Party hosted by The Shabby Chic Cottage. I'd been thinking about posting my little birdie friends for some time and this seemed the right time. I'm posting late, but please give me some comment love. Prior to my love of Blogging, I love my little feathered friends. I've enhanced by collection with searching blogs. Thank you all you wonderful blogs.
This little bird is tucked into one of my green plants.
I painted this white. It was gold and black. Much better white.
A sweet little tray purchased at a discount store.
I purchased these little birds from the dollar store. They were bright and ugly. Now sweet and pretty.
This is a three tier shelf where I put my cardinals. These birds are not cardinas but go well with the others.I don't buy every cardinal I see. They have to speak to me.
Lastly a little bird house.

This was fun. Thank you for stopping by.
