Favorite Pins

Happy, happy Friday Friends!

Here I am with my favorite pins this week and there are some GOOOOOOD ones! Have some awesome pins to share? Link up with The First Grade Parade.


PIN #1

You know when you find something that is SO simple and brilliant and you think " duh, why didn't I think of that". Yeah, that's what I thought of when I found this pin by Ideas by Jivey.

I am going to use the bookshelf I had my book bins on last year for something else this year and I was wondering where I could put them. Perfect solution right here.

PIN #2

Here is another genius one by Aunt Peaches.

A marker/ writing utensil caddy from nothing other than a shoebox and some empty toilet paper tubs. I love this idea for my writing station.

PIN #3

My students last year did a pretty good job of keeping our library organized. However, it is always a pet peeve to come across books in the wrong places. I love this idea from Teaching Takes Heart of having the kids put clothespins on the tub they take their book from. When they are done they simply remove their pin and put their book back.

PIN #4

How cute is this bulletin board by Lorri's School Library Blog?! As my good friend, the lovely and talented Angela from Hippo Hooray for 2nd Grade said, it's "perfect" for me.

PIN #5
My last classroom pin is this awesome one by Clutter Free Classroom.

I have tried using bulletin board paper to create display areas on my walls and it never stays crisp in the middle. But I love this idea of using poster board and duct tape to create one! ( And I love the colors too!)


PIN #6

I immediately loved the caption on this pin from Club 31 Women and when I went to check it out there were some very good pieces of advice. Many times lists of things to do with your kids seem to be no brainers, but it always nice to have those little reminders.

PIN #7

I LOVE the red in this outfit from Polyvore. The shoes especially just pop! This outfit reminds me that I should not just buy blue and black clothes when I go shopping. ( Although there is plenty of blue and black to make me feel at home. )

PIN #8/9

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE interior design. It doesn't always look like it in my house but I really do. ;) I am obsessed with the idea of having a couch banquet seating area in my kitchen like this one from Apartment Therapy. It really will never happen, I do not have the space. But its still beautiful.

When my family got back from vacation at the end of June I decided to make it part of my 10 year plan to own a house on a lake somewhere. This living room from This Old House, the size and colors, would be so perfect in that someday house.

PIN #10

Lastly, I leave you with this little gem from Meta Picture that made me laugh so hard and woke my husband up. ( I was checking Pinterest on my phone before bed.) He probably looked at me like this cat.

( Its not quiiiite as funny in the light of day, but last night at 1 am....HILARIOUS!)
Before I go I wanted to let you know that you should REALLY check out my Facebook page tomorrow morning.
Looks GREAT doesn't it. :) Thanks to Corrina at Surfin'Through 2nd Grade who made this cutey cute image for us.

Well, that's all for me. I am going to check out all the cool things everyone else pinned this week!



  1. What a great idea to use crates as a bookshelf with the magazine boxes inside! I never would have thought of that. Thanks for sharing all of your awesome pins!
