Lately I’ve been wanting to scour local antique stores for little treasures. Wouldn’t it be great to decorate with these vintage pieces? This collection seems to be themed “elementary school mementos”

that record player was wicked. couldn’t beat the collection of vinyl that went along with it. check craigslist or freecycle. maybe you’ll get lucky.
p.s. I could have sworn you had a vintage style desk growing up. maybe your mom still has one? nightstand, totally!
Ahh! You’re right, Ash! I did have an old school desk…I think the last I saw it, it was in our chicken coop….I’ll need to investigate that. And possibly clean out the chicken coop poop.
Erin this resembles your thesis, maybe you should have gone into interior design. Also I am pretty sure that after that much time of coop poop it has become coop poop concrete! Keep the posts comin!
