Friday .... Fabulous

Further work on my room at school has resulted in kind of an Internet/Work station feeling and atmosphere. Monday and other days we don't get out the laptops, the desks turn around to face inward, but while they are working, it is more helpful to be able to see over their shoulders and help them from behind the monitors. I bought some new posters on Ebay... Juliet Binoche, Paris, French stuff... And see my new little Eiffel Tower lamp? Only 11.99 from Collections. I love it.
Found these cute b/w folders from Current. and the holder, too. The box houses my little jumble necessities like stapes, clips, three hold punch, tape, etc.

Anyone for the clearest glass of iced tea in the world? I know I'm in trouble when I start to crave it about 11 p.m. Even the napkins smell terrific from our little drive through coffee shop, JavaSmith.
See the corner of my Chocolat poster? And the little red lampshade was rescued from a dumpster and covered with the rips of an old skirt... Trash to treasure? Morning sunshine tries its best to enter, but my little moles always pull the shades.
I have always been a huge fan of Lady Liberty... although I've never been to New York. I love the photo of her head in Paris... I'll have to look for that one.
Oh... guess this isn't it... huh? It's MY head in Paris though... Is that a start? Bon jour!

Oh Gayla,
You have put so much into your classroom.
Yep, you are not ready to actually love it too much.

You can tell by the care and coordination you have put into your classroom.

Thanks for the peek at you too.

What a fantastic classroom Gayla. It makes me wish I was back in your class. Only this time I wouldn't "talk" so much.

Bon Jour mon amie, Your classroom is magnifique (I'm probably spelling this wrong). I am impressed with your design. It is sophisticated and colorful, and being the mother of three artistic kids, I have to say that they would be thrilled to have a class like this. Susan
