In my next life..I think I'll be a party planner. Not because I think I'm particularly amazing at it but more so because it's just so much fun. Only I would want to continue to plan showers and birthday parties for friends..that way I'd avoid the high maintenance bridezillas or overzealous mother of the brides.
The mantle decor. If you promise not tell anyone.. I'll tell you a secret. The only items on this mantle that are actually vintage are some of the books. Everything else was found at Michaels or Target!!! oh and the flashcards are from Anthropologie. I had them in my classroom last year.
