Playing School

I played around with some of the items that I have collected over the years to create a school vignette on the hall entry table.
Some things I used to decorate my classroom & some I used in our home office.
I found this wonderful picture of a school girl in an antique shop in my hometown many years ago.
When I saw the photo I fell in love with the image.
That big bow looks like it's made with a piece of torn taffeta, the edges are frayed.
Of course the fact she's holding an apple sealed the deal for me to buy it.
I think I paid $5.00.
The school house lamp from my classroom sits on top of the stack of old books.
The old globe has been on top of the filing cabinet in our office for years.
My favorite Norman Rockwell picture.
I found it at Garden Ridge years ago.

Well, it's Friday.  Hope you've had a great week!
Enjoy your weekend.

I adore your vintage school display. I too enjoy decorating little areas around my home.

Every year at this time I get nostalgic about the beginning of the school year for two reasons. Firstly, I miss going to school myself. Secondly, I spent 3 years teaching school in the middle east after college. Wonderful experience! Then I returned to school once again in NYC to study interior design. Every moment was like magic to me! Your little desk is just too cute!!
