These are a few of my favorite things...

Alright, those of you who know my name is Liesl may "get" the reference to "The Sound of Music."  For those of you who don't know, "I'm Liesl.  I'm 16 and I don't need a governess."  If you don't get that one, it just means I'm old a lot older than you.

Anyway, I had to share a FANTASTIC giveaway---4th Grade Frolics is giving away a bracelet from Sophie's Beads--a Seuss bracelet.  Don't you love it?   When I jumped over to Sophie's Etsy shop, I quickly found several other bracelets I 'need'...a Jane Austen bracelet, and an Anne of Green Gables bracelet.  For those worried about my pocketbook, never fear---I will be passing on the info to family as ideas for Christmas presents.

If you haven't been over to 4th Grade Frolics, check it out here!

I did want to share my fantastic find today.  I went over to see my 'new' classroom yesterday, even though it will be two weeks before I can get in, and frankly left there a little discouraged.  Apparently I'm going from 'land of the new furniture' to 'land of the bits and pieces'.  Don't get me wrong, I'm VERY HAPPY about finding a great school to call home. but I realized I'm going to have to be creative about my storage.  You see, I have a LOT.OF.STUFF.

I was used to having one of these.....
A lot of things can be kept in here.

So, imagine my delight when I found THIS at Michael's today---It's usually $68.99, and it is on sale for $34.99. THEN, I had a 25% off coupon,  AND I got my 15% teacher discount.  SCORE!!!! 

And I picked up some of these (they are 12"x12")...normally $8.99, but on sale (before discounts) for $3.99.   Grab your 25% off coupon at
