I've also started a new little business with my sweet friend, Katie, from school. We now have a shop: Miss Henny Penny, where we hunt down the vintage and bring it to you. There are exciting things happening with that right now...we are working on parties of the yesteryear...you tell us the decade or theme...we bring the goods.
(teacher's hall pass for my room! yay!)
(I'll fight somebody if they try to take my Ticonderoga pencils. P.S. Didn't Mrs. Payne look nice in her school photos? She had two...what's up with that?)
It's a good thing I took pictures of these when I did. My cat threw up on them today and ruined the lot. Hmph.
Don't you wish report cards still looked like these? "George is a lovely student but..." He could use careful study habits to raise these grades, too. What is he thinking? Uh Oh. Not a strong S.
I loved finding these old camp "reports" and the student's American Red Cross swimming card. I wonder what her bathing suit looked like? Very modest, I'm sure.
Then there was this school yearbook that I grabbed at the last second off a book shelf at an estate sale. It is from 1922 and I really can't tell if it is college or high school. I really believe it is college. Here is Grace's picture; she must have cut out her beau. I wonder what that story was.
Domestic Art and Domestic Science. Love.
Here is her senior class roster, although she was but a lowly sophomore when this yearbook was printed. Don't you love all of these names?
Here she is. Second row. Far right. From Hope, AR. And I guess that Zeb was her beau. Is that who she cut out of the picture? Oh, I bet it was. He must have really broken her heart that summer.
They look much older than high school sophomores; I bet this is a college. It's also an agricultural college.
I still have so much to share. Lots of neat textbooks and elementary findings with really funny drawings. It's amazing what an abandoned box in a garage will allot you. Don't forget to dig!
