I am a retired middle school science teacher and I have seen so many educational programs come and go throughout the years. One thing for certain, technology is the way to go now. After using blogging with my students, I decided to start one for myself. Since I like decorating on a budget, I decided to share some of my ideas. I love to visit designer showcase homes that have been professionally decorated, and duplicate the look for a fraction of the cost. I always have my camera in my purse and when I see something that l like, I take a picture. I have no problem shopping in discount stores or chain department stores. Walmart and even dollar stores are some of my favorites.
