vintage classroom charts...

Hello and Welcome!
I would like to say thank you for keeping my secret on my new collection from Jim.
You all are the best!

Today for Vintage Inspiration Friday I have these vintage classroom conception charts from the '60s to show you...

These belong to my friend Sue (hi Sue!) and are in wonderful condition.  There are five sets of twelve cards and only one is missing...


I just love the old graphics and the colors are great too.  There are ones that teach about the weather...


A set all about animals...

Another set teaches about sight and sound...


And another is all about plants...

My favorite set is the kindergarten one.
I have been feeling a little sentimental this week.
My baby started his senior year of high school on Tuesday.
Where did the time go?
Heck, where did the years go...


This next one reminds me of Jake being my happy little camper during past summers and now he is driving off to school...

Hmmm...do you think he might like to drive this to school...

What a beauty!
A customer pulled up in this a few weeks ago and I snapped a quick photo.

Thanks for hosting today Debra and thank you all for stopping by and taking a peek at these great old charts...

Look for these in my Etsy shop soon!


Have a wonderful weekend!

Funny to think that children will never again need to learn that there are 12 inches in a foot.

Just thought I'd let you know: I bought a big black iron half-crown yesterday, after seeing your new collection. My husband hasn't noticed it yet.

So cute Sandi! I love these old images of the good ol' days. Wow, your son is a senior. It's exciting, but I can see how you are sentimental. My boy will be there before I blink an eye.
Have a great weekend,

As an {elementary}
school kid for part
of the 60's, I can
so relate to these
fun charts! And my
daughter is a junior,
so I agree about the
TIME....let's slow it
down....please??!

These are wonderful...so cute with their sweet graphics. Those were the days when everything was so simple.
Oh yes, they do grow up so fast. Senior year is the best!
