Whew.....Such a Busy Time of Year!

I start back to school next week.  I have been very busy in my classroom getting it ready for all the fresh faces that will come through my classroom door on Wednesday and this is my last chance to get any home projects done before my life is taken up with grading, lesson planning, and other school, mom, and PTC duties.  (Didn't I just reprimand myself for run-on sentences? Oh well!  At least I know it's a run-on.  My third graders usually don't know it.)

In addition to working in my classroom, I did a complete reorganization of Worker Bee's and my bedroom.  Nothing really dramatic, but just some editing, switching out some furniture, and putting up a great giveaway I won from Cathe over at Just Something I Made.  I hope to share all these little changes on Sunday.

In the meantime I thought you might enjoy a sneak peek of some sweet pink treasures in our room.
( I swear I just dusted all these treasures!  Please, avert your eyes from the dust!)

My pink sunglasses.....
My favorite fragrances - Amazing Grace and Crabtree & Evelyn's Rosewater.....
A sweet little candlestick.  The color reminds me of Depression Glass, but I'm not sure if it is.
Another pillar candlestick.  Again, it looks like it might be Depression Glass, but I just don't know.
And last a sweet little silver cup filled with faux roses.  I don't use fake flowers a lot, but I just loved the look of these and how velvety they felt.
Hope you enjoyed a little peek into our bedroom pinks.  (Wow!  I hope that doesn't show up on some weird Google search!) 

Well I hope you are able to see some more delightful pinks by visiting some (or all) of the participants in Beverly's 
Pink Saturday over at How Sweet the Sound.  Isn't it always fun to see all the different pinks?

Hope you can come back again and see what I managed to get done before the school bell rang!  Maybe I'll even pour you a pink lemonade!  


  1. All lovely pinks! Have a great school year-I am not sure where the summer has gone!


  2. Love the pink shades-have a great PS!

  3. Love the pink shades-have a great PS!

  4. Oh, dear Sweet Honey Bee! I have, once again, had a lovely and refreshing time visiting you. (Except for the part where you mentioned school - usually I'm so ready for it to start but....sigh) You're so funny for mentioning your run on sentence. Blogging has made my technical use of the English language sort of fall apart. Embarrassing a bit...

    Your outdoor dining area is sooooooo wonderful! What a lovely difference you've made. Tom JUST got our outdoor table out of the barns and cleaned them off. Er, better late than never????? We haven't had any lawn because of the stone wall construction and the puppy enclosure but both are done and put away. We feel so relieved that we almost want to cry. There are so many small things that we can take for granted, hmmm?

    Now, I wonder if blogger will allow such a long comment. Let's see.

    Love, Katy Noelle

  5. Hello Sweet Bee!
    Thank you for your visit today! I was tardy ;-) with my PS post this morning so hope you will stop by again to see!
    Love all your sweet pinks today! Crabtree & Evelyn is the best isn't it!!
    And your roses sure do look real to me!
    Happy PS and enjoy a new year at school!
    Hugs and Smiles,

  6. Oh my, at school already! You have lovely pinks.

  7. Love the dust! LOL- I have some of that, too...well, maybe more than some.
    Enjoy your weekend before the madness begins. Brave woman to be teaching 3rd graders.
    Thanks for stopping by to visit!
    Hugs- Tete

  8. It is a super busy time of year! :P
    I am a new fan of Philosophy. My favorite fragrance is Unconditional Love. Love it!

    Have a Great Saturday! :)


  9. I haven't even started getting my classroom ready, let alone the things we are going to cover.

    That all starts next week. Ugh.

  10. Hi Sweet Bee,
    Take it easy before you are back in the rat race.
    Do you have time to stop by and look at the bumble bees on my blog? I think you will love Lalique's haircomb of horn, light and nightblue enamel with gold.
    Happy weekend!

  11. Pretty pinks! I really like the bling-y sunglasses.

  12. Oh!! I love ctabtree's rosewater... my fav too!!!!

  13. Happy Pink Saturday, Love your Pink glass! Thanks for sharing! XOXO

  14. Happy Pink Saturday. Lovely pink pretties.

  15. Hi Janelle,
    Buzzing in one more time as this is so worthwhile looking at and listening to, a very busy busy bee flying about:
    Yes, it is correct that there are three s's in the URL.
    The text of the song on my blog is a lyric from the Swedish pop group Abba.
    René Lalique was a famous Art Nouveau / Jugendstil jeweler. I am a great admirer of his works.
    Which grade are you teaching?
    What I can read from your blog you must be such a fun and creative teacher. That will be such a stimulus for the kids you teach.
    Happy Sunday and stay well!

  16. What does amazing Grace smell like. I've seen it on QVC and always wanted to try it but...

    Love the faux rose in the silver cup!

  17. I have a totally pink bathroom, pink tiles and pink paint on the walls, pink tiles on the floor, a pink wicker shelf. Love pink! Thanks for the inspiration. I'm going to show my pink bathroom on my blog soon!

  18. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog for PS and for sharing these lovely pictures, too! :)


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
