Nubs Nob, iPads and Sunflowers

Yesterday was a perfect summer day.  I started off with a work related meeting.  What?  Teachers work in the summer.  No, No, they play all summer and expect a year round salary!  Now when I tell you what I did all morning, don't hate me.  I belong to our assistive technology committee at Char -Em.  We meet monthly to discuss new technology and how it helps students access curriculum.  We wrote a proposal to have iPads to use with students and collect data on how kids learn using the iPad.  So I spent the morning yesterday becoming familiar with my new iPad!  I will spend the summer uploading educational apps.  I already know which students I will use it with.  I am so excited!  I will also lend it to special education teachers in my districts when I am not using it.  I want this baby to be used all day long.

After my meeting I went to the annual art fair at Nubs Nob.  I love this one, there are so many talented vendors.  I brought a little cash to keep me from going crazy.  Guess what?  They take checks and credit cards.  Hmmmmm.  I could not resist this painted suitcase table.  Marsha Reed had so many fabulous pieces. She doesn't have a website but you can reach her at

I also bought this very fun lamp.  Remember I have been looking for unique lamps and boy this one is a beauty.  It comes from the people at Heather Lane Pottery.  I am so in love with this lamp!

I ended my day at my weekly painting class.   We are painting floor cloths with big beautiful sunflowers.  I love painting sunflowers!  They make me happy.  I told my painting friends about the painted suitcase table and we may attempt to do one as well.  Yeah!!


  1. Very cool table and lamp! And during the summers, you can lend out the iPad to your daughters, right? j/k

  2. Sounds like a perfect day! I love the table and lamp!
