Great Stuff - Back to School

Holy Cow!  My kids start school in like 2 weeks.  2 WEEKS!!!  I have mixed feelings about it.  Part of me can't wait for the return to a schedule and having the house a little quieter for a few hours.  But the other part of me is not looking forward to getting the kids up and gone every morning and I am not looking forward to homework.
But whether I am excited or not school is on its way.

 Would my kids be to too big of suck ups if they brought their teachers this on back to school night?  Becuase I really want them to.  It is just so cool.   There is a great tutorial at Shindig Parties to go.

Or maybe we need to make these edible chalkboards from Hungry Happenings.  Seriously genius.

I would love to find a desk like this for my kids.  It would make a perfect homework spot.  Check out the before and afters at Crafty Texas Girls.

Luckily for me I already have a desk like this one from Sisters of the Wild West in my garage.  well not like this one, but like the before of this one.

I love this vignette from Sunny Simple Life.   I wish I had stuff for Back to School decorating, maybe someday, for now I am busy enough with plain old decorating.  

And one more super cute desk for good measure.  This one is from Bee Interiors. 

We still have a ton to do before school starts again... fun places to go, clothes to buy, and home/summer school work to finish up.  How are you getting ready for school?


  1. These are just great! Love the desk from the Crafty Texas Girls! Just lovely!!

  2. Oh I love those Oreo apples! Just tooooooo cute! I think it would be a great idea to bring those to meet the teacher night! Go for it!

  3. Great finds, I wish my kids would be starting school in 2 weeks.

  4. Thanks for sharing! I also love the desk from Crafty Texas Girls!

  5. Thank you so very much for the shout out. I love the red apple candies (I think they are). So cute. And yes that pink desk is such retro cuteness. I sat at the very same things in school.

  6. Thanks for including my pink vintage desk in your line-up! I am so excited to be featured:)
