Autumn Bouquets & School Supplies

Pin It “Don't you just love…the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I just knew your name and address.”
—Joe Fox
You’ve Got Mail

Today had a glorious morning.

It was chilled and there was just a touch of frost on the ground. It was absolutely fantastic. I drove to work with the windows down and the music playing.

I couldn’t help but smile the entire way there.

When I arrived at school I was greeted yet-again with a beautiful bouquet I received yesterday from a friend of mine. I’m so glad that she knew my name and address.

They kept the smile with me all day.



Thanks, T.

Wow that is pretty creative, You should leave that on your desk and see what the kids say.

I want one of those....I seriously need to steal your friends. I admit that is also my favorite line from "You've Got Mail"....I just loved the imagery of a bouquet of yellow #2 pencils tucked in amongst other school supplies.

I guess its more fun wanting to buy school supplies and reminisce about autumn when you aren't struggling against other back-to-school moms for the last Hannah Montana backpack and lunchbox.

Shosh - Glad you stopped by...and yes, the kids were REALLY impressed.

Shoe - Hannah Montana...ugh...

Kris - I've got a few of 'em.

Gerb - You could say that again...it's also fun to get 'larger' gifts, if you know what I mean.

Cari - This is one of my favorite times of the year, immediately followed by my least favorite--winter.

Bee - Luckily I have a pretty honest class this year--at least, so far.

IG - Try it out. I wouldn't dare it myself as I am not so creative with crafty stuff...I tend to mess it up.

Jewels - It was Christmas!

Jake - Thanks. I'll have to pass along your compliment to the person who brought it in, who, as usual, wishes to remain anonymous.

Even more practical than a shiny apple! Now you can make a pie and write your next story.

What a seriously great gift that is. One day you & Cheeseboy will have to do a post telling us what are great teacher gifts and what aren't.
