World Teachers Day

Contributor post by Alicia of AliciasFindings

 

The United Nations’ (UN) World Teachers’ Day, October 5th, celebrates the role teachers play in providing quality education at all levels. Some celebrations are focused on a single teacher, while others celebrate the teaching community as a whole.

Here at Christmas in July we wanted to know what you have that relates to this and the story behind the item.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

I have a number of printed and printable art and signs that are great for teachers.

They are utilitarian and motivating!

Here’s an orange quiet sign perfect for October. Teachers can post this earning on the front of their doors or even in the classroom. It warns hall traffic to keep it down and lets everyone know great achievements are being made inside. As a student, I’d rather look at this sign when I’m taking a test.

Melissa R from missy69 states:

I am not for sure if this is what you are looking for, but I started a series of painted mugs called, Halloween for Heroes, and teachers is one of those heroes. You can see each mug says you can’t scare me I’m a teacher, nurse or fireman. Those are the ones I have done so far. Teachers are vital to our youth. In conjunction with parents, and other members of society they hold the future of the world in their hands, and hearts.

For a teacher that does any sewing or quilting or any kind of craft.

I love the  graphic 45 paper range and made these cute matchbook notes with it. These would make lovely little teacher appreciation presents for the end of the year! They are perfect for keeping in a handbag (or on the teacher’s desk) for jotting notes. Teachers always need stationery!!

A Teacher needs a School House to teach in…. Many of my buttons are finds of discontinued buttons. These are a great find of mine and I was able to get several sets of these. A great button to use on a gift you are making for that special teacher.

Ina from InaSudjana says:

I made this pair of coasters especially for my 5 year old Pre-Primary teacher as a thank you gift at the end of this year.

Apples for the teacher to brighten up her days — practical too for that cuppa

Home Cooking

Eating out is out! Cooking at home is in.

Here at Christmas in July team we wanted to know do you have any items related to Home Cooking and what the story behind the item is.

Dawn Whitehand  from DeeDeeDeesigns says:

My shop is all about home cooking, food presentation and sharing food with family and friends.

My ceramic wares are oven to table, and are microwave safe, oven safe & dishwasher safe – so you can cook a pie or casserole and serve it immediately to the table and then clean up in the dishwasher – easy and dinner party friendly!

This bowl is ideal for baking a pie, cooking casseroles, serving salads and anything else you can think of in the kitchen…

I have lots of other home cooking wares in my store so visit and take a peek

Sue and Misty from shabbyshopgirls states:

One of the things we LOVE to collect is vintage Cookbooks! We have many available, but this is one of our favorites and a classic that every bride must have received for her wedding from the 40’s to the 60’s and is still popular today! If you don’t have a copy of The Joy of Cooking, your kitchen is just not complete!

Arlene from ThisandThatCrafter says:

A classic and fun way to eat at home is to BBQ. It is a great way to have very tasty food and on hot days you don’t have to heat up the kitchen with cooking. A great way to eat at home instead of going out on a hot day. Here is a great vintage book on Betty Crocker Best Recipes for Grilling. This book is from 1989 and has lots of great recipes in it.

If you make a cake at home, you have to be able to store it and why not in this vintage aluminum cake carrier. My mother had one similar to this and she used to bake a cake from scratch every Friday. This caught my eye at a yard sale and brought back all those good memories of fresh baked cakes.

What could be more iconic of the days of home cooked meals then a piece of vintage Pyrex from the 1940’s?
