Hello everyone! Well, I had a mild panic attack this morning when I turned on my MacBook and saw the date. It's the last day of July!! And I'm not panicking (yet) because the start of school is coming later in August, but because I completely spaced the July edition of the Summer Shopping Linky!
Well. It's still July now and there's still time to start this party, right?
So first I'll show off a few purchases I found at Walmart today (please don't tell Target I was unfaithful, it's very unlike me!).
I bought these little zebra lamps...
They are so tiny and cute! They have the exact same base as my other three larger lamps that look like this:
I love how they will go together! And they will have a very important function. They'll be going on the shelves of my classroom library, which is going to need some extra lighting because it's going in a closet this year. (The closet is open, without doors, just so you don't think I'm totally weird!)
I also bought some new little carpets for my little reading nooks. My old carpets were pretty aged and gross, so I grabbed a couple that matched our color scheme (still looking for a green, yellow, or orange one to complete the set)...
Yes...they are bathroom rugs.
A bit strange maybe, but I like them because they are super-soft, you can wash them in the machine, they are cheap (14.97 I think?), and they have those really grippy bottoms (my old ones kind of traveled a lot, you know?).
On a side note! I would never admit this to anyone else but my fellow classroom-crazed-designers...but I tucked a little sample of my color scheme in my bag today, just to make sure it all matched!
Have you been shopping? Of course you have!! And I'm hoping we can share our finds together! Please feel free to link up any classroom purchases.
I don't have a button for the linky because I am in the middle of 463 projects right now and I'm sure you are too. I hope you don't mind!! Here's a blog button in case you want an easy way to link back from your post (it will link to this party)...
