Although it it hotter than Hades outside (as my friend would say), this time of the year brings an excitement in the air. Kids are shopping for school clothes, parents are helping their kids move into their college dorms, and FOOTBALL is getting ready to start. For a while there we were really unsure if we would be able to partake in America's favorite sport which would have made me pretty sad. I'm sure we could have found a reason to have a tailgate party even without football, but I'm pretty sure grilling and drinking in a university or NFL football stadium parking lot without an actual game going on is prohibited.

As I drive though my neighborhood I am treated to the array of school flags hanging outside of the homes. It is not unusual to see the Red River Rivalry going on in the front yards on many streets. We do love us some football here in Texas and even have several movies and a TV show to display our proud spirit for our teams.

Well I've come up with my own school spirit decor. I made this for Preteen's teacher at the end of this year. She is an Arkansas alum and her daughter will be a freshman there this year. She LOVED it!!

What a fun gift to give your college students.

Here is another one I made for a friend who bleeds Aggie maroon.

The possibilities are endless with these things. Sororities, school names, teacher names. Great way to show school spirit!

Note: Make sure to follow me on FACEBOOK. I do fun giveaways every now and then and you don't want to miss out.

I'm linking up to these parties!! Go check them out!

  1. That Arkansas block is awesome! My hubby and I are from Arkansas, and although we live in Mo. now, we have Razorbacks on both our cars, on our checks, all over our basement, J's license plate, and my keychain! Go Hogs!

  2. really cool glass blocks!! Thanks for stopping by and commenting about my kitchen island. I'm not sure where I got the pot rack chandelier but I'm going to see if I can find the receipt. It was a few years ago and I ordered it online.
