Back to School

My older son brought me these the last time he came over. Aren't they pretty in the breakfast nook?We don't start school here till the 27th, but I'm ready for a new year with my piano students .
This is a repro hankie.
I love the apple flashcard. The green To School and Home Again was found at a thrift store.
Are we ready for a new school year? Ready or not here it comes.
I wanted to say thank you to you all. I have received so many nice comments and feel like I'm really getting to know you. You guys keep me creative and I'm loving it. THANK YOU!!
Have a great weekend!

  11. What beautiful flowers your sweet son brought you! Your one lucky girl to have such a thoughtful son :-) I used to have a tartan lunch pail. I guess I must be old as dirt if they are now "vintage" LOL

  13. I love your back to school vignette! I remember so many of my school mates had that red plaid lunch box. Not me! Mine was red with Go-Go dancers on it!!! My modern mother......



  14. What a sweet young man to bring his momma flowers! I am just getting to my comments from last week. I wanted to thank you for stopping by Posed Perfection and leaving me such sweet comments. I really appreciate your kind words. Still working on getting hubby well. If only the chicken soup would have worked quicker! I hope you have a great week!

  15. What a sweet son to bring you flowers and how adorable is your collection of back-to-school goodies!! Our freshmen arrived at my University yesterday and I could see their excitement and fear in their faces. My girls don't start until after Labor day. They are soaking up every bit of the last of summer.

  16. What a sweet son! The flowers add to the cheeriness in your kitchen! I love your red plaid lunchboxes. I had a similar one when I was little. I think I did a post a with a picture of all my sisters and me on the first day of school, wearing our matching plaid dresses and matching lunch boxes. :-) Good memories.

  17. That little white shelf in the back of one of your photos would fit right in at my house with all the red and white polka dots.
