Oh, how I love to do a little seasonal decorating! And today seemed like the perfect day to think about fall...yes the temperature was still in the 90's, but hey, it wasn't over 100! And it was cloudy and rainy, and the sun hardly showed his face all day. With the air conditioner on, I just decided to pretend fall was here, and I pulled out a few back-to-school things to decorate the top of my new little dresser in the entryway.
I picked this little thing up off of somebodies curb. It was just waiting there for the trash man to do his large pick up rounds. I shoved it into the back of my car and saved the trash man and the landfill a bit of trouble.The top is a bit messed up, so I covered it with three bright place mats from a thrift store. I raided my new home school room for some supplies like chalk and crayons and the small chalkboard.
I am having a small love affair with milk glass right now, so I used thrift store milk glass vases with sunflowers to add some height.
Of course some vintage books HAD to be included. The red one is "Back to School with Betsy." Seriously, how cute is that! I am really enjoying my cute little area as I fantasize about fall. The hard truth is, we won't have cool weather until late October at the earliest, but a girl can dream, right!
