Vintage Cafe Challenge

At the Vintage Cafe Challenge, we are to make something with the theme of "childhood".  Again, I found this image on Pinterest and pinned it to my board.  The little poem below the image reads:
"This teacher is not old
but rather strict and stern
The scholars, good as gold,
say ABC in turn."

As before, I pulled colors from the print and added buttons and natural twine, along with some blue ric-rac trim that Savannah gave me.

Childhood at VCC
