School Days…School Days!

It’s that time again. In our household, a uniform is laid out, lunches planned, new backpacks are prepared and everything that leaves the house is labeled. Yes, that school bell is about to ring for both me and my Princess. Technically, it rang several weeks ago for my hero as the Naval Academy welcomed Midshipmen back for a new year.

First Grade! How did that happen? Next thing you know we will be dropping her off at some dorm somewhere…not really, but it sure feels that way to this Mama.

I love school and I love vintage school things…one of my favorite things to celebrate with decor is the start of school. It makes me smile to think of children now long, long grown answering that school bell so long ago.

School bells, ink wells and vintage flash cards brighten up an early Fall mantel.

Curious George and some vintage books and toys are waiting for little hands to play with them again.

An antique chalkboard join some apples, sunflowers and original crayons in front of the fireplace.

More Antique books and rulers to welcome scholars back to class.

How sweet is this lunchbox topped with blocks?

Speaking of sweet…how cute is the Princess at the opening Navy football game!

Go Navy…Beat Army
