August Decorations and Back To School.. already?

I have finally put the 4th of July stuff away and just started to put some August/back to school stuff out.. I have been looking for over a year now and have a really hard time finding Back to School type decorations.. For August though I do apples.. I think it's a nice transition to fall. I hope to add some more pictures soon.. Once I get it all out and find some energy!
The only School stuff I have found is a little tin schoolhouse candle holder.. found it at a garage sale for next to nothing but it is one of my favorite things for August. I found these ADORABLE pillows on Etsy.com but with a new baby arriving next month I am really trying to limit my budget.. But they are SUPER cute and are on my etsy favorites. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23925128

I can't really think what else to use for Back to School stuff ( I have been on the look out for mini school supplies that look vintage-y for my wreath on the front door).
Preschool starts the first week of Sept. here so I still have just about a month to prepare and plan.. Ramsey is already excited and talks about school everyday. We haven't changed the kids schedules much so we don't have to change back which is a relief. Ramsey will be going to the early class which will be different for us.. Kind of excited for preschool not to start the same as nap time.. Hoping he will be tuckered out after school and want to take a nap. The baby should be here a couple weeks after school starts, hoping that won't mess up any routines that are working by that point!

There are some super cute cookies online you can buy that are school supply shaped but they are WAY to expensive for my budget $25+ shipping.. OUCH! I am planning on making some though. I did pencils and erasers a couple years ago.. Hoping they turn out better this year! I'm just doing sugar cookie's with royal icing.. Love the crayons.. just right for preschoolers! These are some that are online.. Hope mine will turn out this good lookin!
