Summer Shopping Linky

I am linking up with Kristen over at Ladybug's Teacher Files
to share some of my summer shopping finds, and maybe
provide you with a little inspiration too..
On Sunday, I headed over to JoAnn's to get some
crafty stuff to finish up my desk blotter.

Besides the bling, I found colored craft sticks and
mini velcro dots to make these math angle kits.
Next, I made a trip with hubs to Home Depot to get some paint and pots
for another craft project I wanted to do.
I found these pretty red and turquoise glazed pots that would go
 perfectly with my new room design.
Problem was, they didn't have enough,
so... after trips to 4 different Home Depots...

By the way, the paint kits I found at HD had just come in that day. 
The regular one (on the right) was $6 for 12 bottles and the metalic set was $9. 
A bargain right?

I still need a few more, but I think these are going to be cute on my tables
to hold pencils and erasers.

I even made this one for my table to hold paper clips and binder clips, etc.

I painted these to be jewelry holders for my bathroom and my
daughter's bedroom (she is a purple freak!)
  I had picked out a bright lime green for the middle part of hers,
 but she wanted black instead.

The colors of mine do not show really accurately. 
The top and bottom are a coppery color burnished with the gold,
and the middle is the gold burnished with the coppery color. 
It is prettier in person than in the pictures.

While I was Home Depot surfing, I stopped at Target to get the fabric drawers
they have on sale this week ($5.99 versus $7 at Lowe's.)

...and I found some new duct tape patterns!

I also oreded these cute little mini boggle games
from Oriental Trading Company.  $8.50 for a DOZEN!

OK, must stop shopping and get some work done!
