Have I mentioned I love home decor? I've been treasure hunting, and I've found some awesome items and inspiration for my home and classroom at the following sites:
Designers Block - THIS is a woman I'd enjoy exploring with! Check out the funky grass rings!
Decor8 - for the color-craving-creature in all of us!
Absolutely Beautiful Things - with tons of inspiration photos for making one's home a sanctuary and escape from the maddening world.
and finally, Hostess with the Mostess - a site, I admit, I only visited because of the title (which my mother bestowed upon Shannon a few years back- only being a teacher, it was "Hostess with the Mostest!").
These sites are sure to take your mind off of your worries this week, enjoy!
