Hello! Here's a photo of the Pom Pom teacher corner. I was going to wait until I had tidied it up a bit more, but that may be weeks from now. Betty said she would have a glass top on her desk and I DO have one! I have some pretty photos to put under the glass but for now great quotes are under all the clutter. You can see my bags all about. Baby wipes on the corner. I recently brought in some rosemary and lemon balm. The kids like to rub the leaves and sniff. I have daffodils on the table near the door, too. It's still VERY hot. Yesterday we took a walk around the school so we could get some fresh air. Praying for a heating duct miracle.
Then as I browsed through some of my saved images, I found a few favorites I thought you may like to look at. Maybe you should stop in at Snap's Bakery and buy yourself a scone.
I realize I go on an on when it comes to my favorites, but isn't Jane Dyer a gorgeous painter/artist? The yellow apron. The rich blue blouse. The glasses. The kerchief. Who doesn't adore a painting featuring a horse?
Many of you love Brambly Hedge. Yes, out in the cold of winter there just has to be cozy little tree trunk dwellings like this one. Don't you agree?
Do you order seeds from seed catalogs? I'm going to request a few seed catalogs today. My zinnias were glorious one year and I think it may have been the good seeds. It's such a fine time to plan our gardens. Jody at Gumbo Lily posted a photo of a breathtaking sunset on the prairie. So, even though we look out at sticks and twigs right now, January is a very lovely winter girl. She smells nice and clean.
Susan Branch (you know, another one of my very favorites!) draws and paints the prettiest little blessings. Is your tea kettle going to sing today?
Yesterday after school I met two of my former students at the coffee shop. They are seniors! Going off to college in less than a year! Yikes! It was fun to listen to their stories. As I ordered my coffee, I spotted this happy red mug. I had to buy it and get a jump start on Valentine's Day. Oh, how I love HEART day!
I raise my cup to you today. Here's to few moments of pure comfort and encouragement. One quiet still moment goes a long way.
