Thanks to everyone who has linked up so far to the Summer Shopping June linky party! I have had a blast looking at your finds! I haven't gone too crazy yet
(there's still time for that, right??) but I have started some shopping for next year. The first exciting thing I found was a border that matches my signs for this year perfectly!
Last year, I used some blue ribbon but I've grown kind of tired of it so I decided to try something black (on the black fabric I already have, so the posters and student work will really pop!). I browsed around looking at black and white borders 'til I found this little gem...
I also bought some replacement contact paper for my tables (I've been covering them with various shades for years, but I'm keeping the same as last year because I still adore it!) Here's an older photo of the paper (slightly more interesting visual than the rolls of liner boxed up in my Jeep right now!)...
So, I know I told you I'm keeping the same black-and-white-with-brights scheme as last year. But I'm doing some little things to amp it up a bit (hopefully).
One of the little tweaks is a new color...so I guess it's actually going to be black-and-white-with-tropical-colors, because I've added some orange! And I really had no choice but to buy some more baskets from Really Good Stuff...it was crucial to the design you see (the orange ones are the newest purchase)...
That last picture is kind of blah, sorry. I left my pretty little baskets at school so that's the only picture I had.
It's actually kind of funny/embarrassing. You know that picture I had of the plastic storage stacked really high from the other day? Well a wonderful teaching colleague walked in and saw me taking photos of it. Plastic storage stacked on a closet. This isn't something the staff normally does at my school. She's too nice to ask or laugh at me and I just breezily said, "oh, I'm taking pictures to show Melissa (my sister)." To my colleague--if you find my blog and read this, I'm sorry I lied!! It was for my blog!!! I felt weird!!
You guys understand, right?
Well, thanks for reveling in my purchases (I'm joking, of course). I have to say, it's nice to be home, on vacation, taking pictures of school supplies without fear of discovery!!
If you'd like to link up, I would love to read all about your purchases...the linky will be open through June :)
