Still snappin' on Sunday...

Yesterday I linked up with Run! Miss Nelson's Got the Camera for her Saturday Snapshots and loved checkin' out everyone else's snapshots, but I wasn't finished snappin', so here are some more pics of my adventures at Nitty's. 

Another pretty painted glass lamp.

Player piano rolls that go with a player piano from the 1920's.

Music Box.

Adding machine that was my Papa's.

Went on a little adventure outside durin' a rain break.  It's been rainin' for daaaaaaaaays!  The sun FINALLY peeked out for a few hours today.

Backyard with lots of ivy.  It looks like it would be fun to jump into if I wasn't deathly afraid of snakes.

So crisp and pretty after the rain.

Peekin' on the neighbors' backyard.  Looks like a barn over there, but it's not.  It's a shed of some sort. 

Found a secret door.  Wonder where it leads to? 
My imagination is runnin' wild right now with the possibilities!

Guess what!?!  My project was FULLY funded!!! I'm absolutely ecstatic about that and can't wait to write another one.  I think next time I'm goin' to write for a MacBook Air or a Touch Ultrabook PC.  Any thoughts on which one you personally prefer and which would be easiest for the kiddos to work with in the classroom?  I'm so very fortunate to have some really supportive and lovin' people in my life (my real life parents, my current rockstar parents and past parents from my many years of teachin').  I'm blessed for sure and could NOT do it without them!

Last night I jumped in on a "Summer Planning Giveaway-Scavenger Hunt" over at I'm Lovin Lit.  It's going on from July 6-12.  It was neat to hop over to other blogs, stores, FB pages and find the secret word.  While hoppin', I found some new blogs to follow and am learnin' about so many new things that I didn't even know existed in real life and teachin' life.   Anyways, at the end of the scavenger hunt you fill in a Google form with all of the secret words you find; pretty painless. I did Pack C & Pack D yesterday and Erin Cobb already emailed me the packs last night...speedy! 

Tomorrow I plan on linkin' up with Tara for Monday Made it with 4th Grade Frolics.  I'm pretty stoked because it will be my first link up for Monday Made It.  I'll give you a hint: they're round.
