We are linking up the cutest teachers Angie at Lucky Little Learners
and Ashley at Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd.
This month we are getting a peek inside the home offices of some incredible bloggers.
Lisa says her current office is her bed. She is moving later in the summer.
Laura said her office was not exciting.
So, by default here is my home office.
When you walk in, this is your view.
A librarian MUST own thousands of books, right?
Here is your proof.
These are not all of the children's books I own.
Not by a long shot.
I have these arranged by season.
I use them constantly for teaching.
I always want the kids to be able to check the library book immediately,
so I try to use my own books whenever possible.
This is my workspace.
I love, love, love my Mac computer.
I prefer a desktop computer.
I have lots of stuff and a big Flair pen collection on my desk at all times.
I received the printer for Christmas.
Here is a close up of the printer.
It is a HP LaserJet Pro 200.
It prints like a champ every single time.
Now, on to a few of my favorite things in my home office.
Our grandmother was hands-down one of the most creative people I ever knew.
She could do anything!
This is one of her oil paintings that hangs above my home office desk.
Our grandmother could do embroidery, oil painting, China painting, gardening,
flower arranging, sewing, quilting, cooking, canning, and list goes on.
I have several of her oil paintings in my home office.
I love all things Curious George.
Here is a close up of some of my Georges.
Notice George in the hula skirt. I purchased him in Hawaii.
The musical George is from one of my former students, who has now earned his MBA.
I was his librarian in Kindergarten! Yikes!
These are two lovely hand-painted pieces from my BFF.
She is also a librarian.
May I mention a retired librarian?
Which means she gets to travel.
The first piece is from Greve, Italy.
The second porcelain piece is from Rouen, France.
We love all things library.
When Steven Kellogg visited my school, he drew this for me.
I adore my personalized artwork!
Pinkerton looks right at home in my home office.
These pieces are above my bookshelf.
The street scene was painted by our grandmother.
The giraffe is a sketch from illustrator Kevin O'Malley.
He visited my school several years ago.
And the statue is the award I won for being named
the Elementary Teacher of the Year for my district.
I like that the focus is on the children.
You can see other paintings by my grandmother in this photo.
The rug was made from tshirts from my BFF.
The old magazine stand was a piece of my grandmother's that I refinished
That's all folks.
You have seen it all.
Now, join up with Angie and Ashley.
Show us your home office.
Have a great June!
