Back to School, Vintage Style

It's been a busy week, I've been running around getting my kids ready for school. There are forms to complete, school supplies, doctor notes, and back to school nights. Once they're back in school, my day does get a little easier and I will be able to put more time into my shops and blog. I can also run errands to the grocery store without any complaints. In honor of back to school, I've picked out a few vintage items.

The schools of my youth had chalkboards, not wipe-off boards. The frame on this chalkboard is vintage, and it was re-made into a great chalkboard. It's for sale at mimiyaya at Zibbet.

I actually learned to type on a typewriter very similar to this. No, I'm not that old, our school was just that behind the times. Some had computer labs, I had this, but I digress. This is for sale at ChaseVictory on Etsy.

This old style school desk is for sale at queganga on Etsy.

I love looking at vintage school things! I have used the "old school" typewriter and writing desk in my time.

Thanks for reading my blog, you are such a sweetie☺

Unfortunately, back-to-school is a sadder subject for teachers than parents -- I'm glad you're getting a breather, though :)

I learned to write on one of those typewriters as well. There were the electric ones already and computers, but my parents sent me to a place where they would teach on typewriters.
