Throwback Thursday: Appreciation of the Cassette Tape

It looks like the images from this Flickr set made the rounds back in February, but apparently I’m a little slow on the uptake. So, just in case some of you also haven’t had the opportunity to partake in the fabulosity of these vintage cassette inserts, please allow me:

Throwback Thursday: The Fisher Price School Desk

I’m thinking of making this a new weekly feature, but… not sure if I’m totally sold on it yet. I already have Wordshop Wednesday and French Friday. Maybe my Thursdays need to feel more liberated and not so pigeonholed? Then again, I love vintage and retro-y stuff anyway, so I kind of doubt “throwback” material would feel very restricting or hard to come by.

Well, we’ll see how it goes.

But, for today, I feel absolutely compelled to post the following images, which I came across last night thanks to Uppercase Gallery‘s ridiculously awesome Flickr stream. I’ve become a bit of a Flickrholic lately, so be careful: it could happen to you. In any case, when I saw these images of the Fisher Price School Desk, I instantaneously screamed and clapped my hands with major elation. And then a bajillion happy memories (both visual and tactile) began inundating me.

It was awesome.

So, without further ado, I give you: The Fisher Price School Desk:
