Teachers, We Appreciate You!

The end of the school year is drawing near. Only 11 more days... Every year around this time I try to think of something creative and original to give to the wonderful teachers who have given to my child all year long!

Here's what I have come up with this year...

Chicken wire apple baskets filled with saltwater taffy and a personal card from my child that reads: "Thank you Ms. Rayburn for being so sweet!"

Up for auction on ebay, I have listed another unique Teacher's gift and will be adding a few more this week.
{If you would like to go directly to the Auction, Click Here!} 

Also listed on Ebay right now is this super cute Baby Girl Album!
{If you would like to take a peek at more photos and the live auction please Click Here!}

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a Happy Tuesday!
