I just had to share with you this week my vintage school learning aid of children on a picnic. Wondering how I managed to get a hold of this cutie? When someone retires at my school all their treasures stored up over the years go into our staff room, free for the taking. When one of our kindergarten teachers retired a few years ago, she put this vocabulary picture card out and I swooped in and grabbed it! (Don't worry, I didn't have to fight anyone off with a No. 2 pencil.)
I had already started collecting vintage picnic tins (see this post for some of this collection) and this just charmed me because of the little plaid thermos bottles. I love that trash can too. I had it framed and matted in the Skotch Plaid colors of black, red and yellow.
Want some cookies? Aren't the colors yummy?
It now lives in our "library" over our wing chair and near those vintage picnic tins.
Hope you enjoyed this little jaunt down memory lane.
Please be sure to stop by Suzanne's at Colorado Lady for vintage delights.
As always, I'm so glad you stopped by for a little visit.
Oh and for those of you with a sharp eye, my pillow on the wing chair is from Amy at Into Vintage. She has the most amazing eye for putting together fabrics and her workmanship is superb! Please stop by and see what she's up to if you can.
