I've just got to share the good stuff I read.

I love to read. I read every chance I get. If I read something really good, I want to share it with my friends and co-workers. I make copies of magazine articles, read aloud to my students, tell others about good books I'm reading, and keep a book with me at all times.

I love teaching and learning new things. I need a place to share some of the lessons and what my students and I learn. Since my teaching situation is different from everyone else's in my school, I would like to tell all of you in the blog-o-sphere about these great lessons.

Feel free to share what you are reading, teaching and learning with us in the comments.

Repurposed doll bed

Had to share these photos of my doll bed planter. Dad had a welder make this bunk bed for my dolls. I don't remember how old I was when I got it. Mom said the same man who made our swing made the doll bed. So it has to be 55+ years old.

I have more photos on my phone and may add them later. 

I used aluminum screening to make the containers. It was very easy to fold and bend into shape.

I bought coconut fiber to line each container and help hold water. 

Plants on the top level are sun lovers and the ones on the bottom like shade.
In the few weeks since planting, the plants on top have grown and flourished. Look for more photos.
