Halloween Greetings

I love vintage greeting cards. It is such fun to see the old-fashioned images, especially children like these darlings.

And don't you love the fashions on this card?

This card really makes me laugh.

Black cats are very appropriate for Halloween cards.

Seeing this parade of black cats might freak me out a little, but they sure are cute.

Of course we must have romantic cards. Hmm, a witch and a Jack-o-lantern?

Bats, Bats and More Bats

I love Bats. 

Image by Bernard Goldbach

The Flying Fox is my favorite.

Bats are amazing, wonderful, helpful creatures, so I especially love seeing Bat decorations at Halloween time. Some are scary.

Some are only a little scary.

Halloween Cupcakes? Yes, Please!

Who would be scared to eat these little ghosties?

Image by Cozinhando Fantasias

I think I'll stay away from this Cupcake, though. I don't think Ms. Spider wants to let it go.

This spider is too cute to be scary.

Jack-o-lantern Cupcakes and Cream Puff. Too adorable.

A candy-corn Cupcake? Perfect.

Image by Chelsea Nesvig

This is my favorite Cupcake. The only problem is that I'd want to save it instead of eat it.

'Tis The Season To Be Scared!

Dare we enter?

Image by woolennium

Perhaps in the daytime.

Image by Russ

But on a night like this?

Image by Dawn Ellner

That's not scary.

Image by Suzie Tremmel

But what if we find this inside?

Image by woodleywonderworks

At least Mr. Skeleton doesn't have nails like this.

Image by Reeh Frada

I think I'll stick with non-scary wallpaper. I put it on my computer at school for the kids and loved it so much I have it on my laptop. So adorable.

Patch Has Fun At School

Patch is our classroom pet. He's so easy to care for and the students just love him. He likes to climb on furniture, but he never hurts anything so we don't mind.


Could you say no to him?


The classroom Helper takes care of Patch, not forgetting him at snack time.


Patch is a good friend not only to people, but to other animals, too. No wonder we all love him.

Perler Bead Projects

I had some Perler beads, so my students and I played with them. We had large ones.






And small ones.



The book that came with the large beads had a couple of projects I liked.





Once the beads are in place, you iron them with a paper covering so they will adhere to each other (which is why I did this at home).


This is the back, showing the beads melted.


And the front. Isn't she adorable?


I love the colorful butterfly, too. This is a wonderful activity for children. They can follow designs or create their own.
