And just a note and shout out to my sister Betty Ann ~ ~

Now, let’s cue the theme song to “Stand and Deliver”

I have always been so proud of her accomplishments as an educator.

She has won many awards to include Teacher of the Year in her school district…

~ ~ for her role in taking a “D” rated school which she was transferred to . . .

~ ~ ~ ~ to an “A” rating in a very short time.

Her “non-gifted” students scored the highest test scores in the district. . .

~ ~ beating out the “gifted class” in a magnet school.

Betty Ann just notified me that a wonderful ex-student of hers ~ ~

~ ~ who has stated that she was his favorite teacher . . . .

~ ~ ~ ~ just got picked #5 in the first round of the NFL Draft ~ ~ Khalil Mack.

Congrats to Khalil and to the teacher who has inspired him!

This shows that with hard work and determination, your dreams can come true. . .

~ ~ and as the school year comes slowly to an end, remember to THANK A TEACHER !

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

I wish you all a most beautiful weekend and Happy Mother’s Day!!!

  1. Very cute booth and teachers aren’t honored or paid enough. My grandmother taught first grade for 30 years. How cool that one of her students was drafted in the NFL.

  2. What fun! I’m popping over to check it out AND what fun news! Your sister sounds like the best kind of teacher out there ( I had a couple!) . Congratulations to her former student. A very big thank you to your sister and all the teachers who love and teach our children!
    Happy Mother’s Day to you too!

  3. God bless your sister, my son-in-law and all the dedicated teachers who take the hardest challenges and succeed!

  4. Shirley, I wish I could shop your booth. I see so many things I would bring home.

    Congratulations to your sister and her student!! This one made me all teary eye!

    Happy Mother’s Day!

      I am sure every teacher in this country has a “story of inspiration” of a student that they touched and inspired…The pay is not stellar, but the rewards are priceless!

  5. On my way over Shirley, I always love to see your new finds!

  6. Luvly booth Shirley. Woo Hoo !!! Teachers don’t get enough recognition . So good to hear such a wonderful heart warming story.
    Congratulations on her accomplishments.
    Hugs, and a Happy Mother’s day .

  7. A beautiful tribute to your sister! Our teachers are normally not recognized as they should be and they’re certainly not paid enough. Having a student(s) accomplish great things is a wonderful honor!

    Your shop looks beautiful! Of course, I would not expect anything less from you…your home is gorgeous.


  8. Shirley,
    It’s so nice to have you over at Shop Talk today. Please tell Betty Ann congrats on all her hard work and yes…the rewards are priceless! Both of my daughters are teachers and I when I saw one of my daughters hug and tell every one of her students that she loved them before they left the classroom…I was one very proud mama! She is so lucky that she works in a school (public) that allows her to do this.

      My sister is retired now….however, her and her hubby continue their great work and generosity by providing College Scholarships in their hometown each year in memory of their beloved son.

  9. I wish I could come tp your booth, I see ALOT that I want!!! Can I buy something from here??? Do you ship??? Congratulations to your sister, we do nOT pay our teachers NEAR what they deserve. What an inspiration she is!!! Have a FABULOUS weekend my friend. I know I will!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):)

  10. Hi Shirley,
    I just got back from visiting your feature at Linda’s. Your booth is so charming and beautiful. Love that white chair and oh my that garden hat is killer. I have never seen one with the top cut out like that. How cute it that. I would fuss with that and probably put a ring of flowers around it. So cute.

  11. Thanks for sharing your booth over at Coastal Charm. Everything is so bright and cheerful, you do a great job!!

  12. Hope you sell lots because I’m sure there’s plenty there that you would like to have to give new look to your spaces!

  13. Both my parents were teachers. I knew your booth would be awesome and there are so many items I want to have in my new home. I wish I was closer!!! That demijohn basket is certainly one of many!!!


  14. Okay Shirley, how did I miss the fact that you have a Booth!?! That explains why you don’t need as much storage as I would think! If anyone needs a booth, it’s you…cause you have such a wonderful way with style that others should benefit. Happy Mothers Day!

  15. Lovely looking at your booth!

  16. How come I imagined your booth would look just like this….amazing! congrats to your sister and helping to shape so many of our young people.

  17. Jeanette Price says

    That’s great! I wish I could be near your booth to do some shopping myself. Everything looks great. The floral arrangements and the wreaths are lovely. I wish there was somtehing like that in my area. Wishing you a very Happy Mother’s Day!

  18. Congrats to your sister- what a fabulous accomplishment! I love Linda and her shop is wonderful! She has so many creative ideas! I’mm pop on over to see more of her shop! Have a great weekend!

  19. I loved your booth that you are featured on…at Linda’s of Coastal Charms,so I wanted to stop by and visit you. I also went to your Pinterest and now a follower of a couple of your boards.

  20. Great treasures in that booth – wish I lived close. Congratulations to your sister – how wonderful. You must be so proud of her
    Have a wonderful Mothers Day, Shirley

  21. Shirley,
    AGAIN I am completely amazed at everything you get done in a day! An antiques booth, too?!? And an amazing one, I might add! It’s a good thing I don’t live close to you or I would go broke…

    Congratulations to your sister and her former student. That truly is the best reward of teaching–all the lives you get to touch and those that influence your own. 🙂 You are a teacher in your own right, Shirley. I learn so much from you! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  22. Shirley, your booth is lovely! I don’t know how I mixed this post up, thinking it was Linda’s booth! You have a booth filled with colors that I love! I also see lots of items I would love to bring home with me! Thanks for sharing it with us!

  23. Just amazing… Love it…

  24. Wow, Shirley, your booth is amazing! I would totally go broke if I lived near there! I see so many gorgeous things that I would love to have. You have a great eye for decor!
