I haven't gone school shopping in years, what fun. I just love school supplies. Next to craft stores, office supply stores are one of my favorites :)

YIPPPIEEEE!!! This was one of my favorite excursions yet, Betty!!!!!

Looks like back to school time. :D I like seeing the world through your camera lens, Betty.

I'm seeing a theme here.

Not for me. I have three more weeks - don't rush it!

This just made me realise I've finished with school shopping forever! In another couple of months my youngest son will finish his last year of school!

I can't wait to do the back to school shopping for my boys - I wish preschool required this!! always so exciting!

CherylK said...

These photos are excellent!! Talk about capturing the essence of the season but with a really modern flair...I love it!! You could frame these shots.

Lourie said...

That's what my shopping cart has looked like for the past three or four weeks!

Nicole said...

well - even if I had been unconcious for a few years - I could see these pics and know exactly what time of year it is!

Joanna Jenkins said...

You make back to school shopping so colorful :-)
Cheers, jj

The Empress said...

You know what, bossy? These remind me of something so much of being a little kid.

Thank you.

Old Kitty said...

Awww BB!! You transform the most mundane of objects into something else by utilising their vivid colours and rigid forms and formations! Wonderful!

Thanks for sharing these!
Take care

Peggy K said...

Hmmmm... didn't look like this at my Walmart!!!

liz said...

I love how they are seasonally themed! I think the spirals together is my fave.

Flartus said...

What fun! I can almost smell the new paper...

Brian said...

Lots of good stuff you got! Hey, where did you get the bird?

The Chicken's Consigliere said...

Happy back to school time, Betty. Shopping for school supplies is my favorite part.

Madi and Mom said...

Hi BB I hear the school bells ringing...in the distance.
I hope your school year starts off smoothly and please tell your students, all your fans want them to know JUST HOW LUCKY THEY ARE TO HAVE YOU FOR A TEACHER!!

Susan Fields said...

School supplies always get me excited for fall. :)

Michelle said...

One of my favorite things ever is shopping for school supplies but you don't need as many with online education- I miss that.

Lindy MacDuff said...

Nice, orderly, and plentiful. You must have gotten there before the crowds came. We made the very bad mistake of going to WalMart the evening of the first day of school. Glad we didn't have to shop in those particular aisles! Waiting in the checkout line was almost as bad as shopping for a major holiday.

blueviolet said...

You are making it even more fun than it is and it IS fun!

Nicolasa said...

Shopping for school supplies is SO much fun!!!

Out on the prairie said...

Enjoyed the panic yestrday looking for the last parts of their lists.

Brian Miller said...

oh its that time of year...got ours done and one week left before school...nice close ups...and colors!

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

I LOVE school/office supplies. LOVE. The smell of a Staples or Office Max is like crack to me.

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

Um, what are those orange-yellow long things, and what's a Dictionary? This is going to be an interesting year!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Nice photos. Do you get strange looks from other shoppers when you take these?

patti said...

Wow, Betty, this place is as crowded as the school supply stores.

Blessings as you start back up!!

H.Toufga said...

Its good that you are doing everythıng wıth joy.. taking those photos was a great ıdea. Loved it

Joe Cap said...

Now if I could only figure out how you get your camera into these retail places without getting into trouble...

Marlene said...

Yeah, what Joe said! LOL....I've snuck my camera in a few times (ok, so it's kinda hard to hide a full size DSLR...but no one hassled me) - but a lot of places don't let you take photos in the stores...so who did you sweet talk? ;)

Mamma has spoken said...

happy back to school to you too!
This year is the first time in 21 years that I'm not buying school supplies. I don't know to be happy or sad :o/

Sarah said...

I hope you're getting reimbursed!

Cindi aka Ericksoc said...

Oh, these pictures made me salivate! I love new school supplies!

LittleSilkDress said...

This makes me miss back to school shopping! New notebooks and pens. A clean page with any number of possibilities. Office supplies just aren't the same.

Pat said...

Ah, school supplies! I loved the new school supplies - I hated the cost! But the smell of new notebooks! Yum!

Noelle said...
