We decided to take our vacation of 2011 in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This was our charming cottage that we stayed in for the week. Of course we instantly fell in love with the town. We walked down to the boardwalk each evening and watch the boats come into the harbor.
As we walked each evening, we enjoyed the charming cape town. The town was very kind and extremely helpful.
All the homes had fences. I would love to have a paint store. haha They were all maintained so well...

I saw this sign on FB and had to copy it...It came from a Lilly store. I am going to get my daughter to paint it for me and put it in my classroom. Notice the KEEP CALM...this is what I will focus on with them. For me the Lilly on will put the smile on my face and provide a private humor for teachers.
I am known for wearing Lilly Pulitzer everyday. This is also the reason for the name of my blog: Lilly of the Beech. Our school has Beech in its name. As you can see in my previous blog I try to decorate with Lilly. The kids don't understand the brand but LOVE the colors.
This sign will be my motto this year for my class. Thanks to the Colorful Gator in Florida for posting the image! (and Re-lilly for the re post)

As I enjoy my summer, I cannot help but think what can I add to my classroom this year. I am known at my school as "Lilly" of the Beech. My class room is done in Pink and Green with Lilly everywhere. I am adding a few accessories to my collection. First the plaques above are being made into table numbers. I have four tables in my classroom, thus numbers 1-4 will be added and hung above the table. On each table will be these buckets. They have Lilly polka dots on them and hold pencils/pens with ribbons made by Royal-Ribbons-Personalized-ribbon-for-every-occasion.
This summer I was the winner of a fabulous Lilly package from re-lilly blog spot Sue has the most wonderful giveaways and I never win. Imagine my surprise when I went to her page and saw this:
