If you grew up in the 50's...Raise your Hand!
The ICONIC DOLLHOUSE
I had this very same doll house! Oh, the HOURS I spent pretending, rearranging the furniture...
I loved the tiny pink bathtub and toilet. I even dreamed of growing up and building this very house.
Where is all the tiny furniture? Someone actually found this in a thrift store. Be still my beating heart! If any of you find one, PLEASE tell me. It is one of my Bucket List items.
I saw...I copied...I had to Share...
Aaah, such Good Memories?
What about Betsy McCall??
She came in every issue of my Mother's McCall's magazine. I adored paper dolls...did you? I even *made* my own paper dolls out of the SEARS and J.C. Penny Catalogs.
S and H GREEN STAMPS
Remember licking these little stamps, putting them in booklets and saving them up to buy "stuff". My Dad bought a lot of my necessities for setting up housekeeping from the S&H catalog.
Grocery stores and Gas *filling* stations gave out the stamps according to how much you purchased.
Green Stamp Booklet
This was almost as good as looking through the SEARS Catalog.
Of course all of these items are primarily American. I would love to see some items from the 50's those of you in Canada and other parts of the world remember!
Psst...I've ordered an USB camera cord that will allow me to take current pictures of my sewing projects. My current cord got chewed by our Beagle, Copper and I've had to rely on my daughter for current photos. This is not convenient for either of us and I certainly am anxious to show you some creations coming forth from "The Sewing Cave". I had a major cleaning frenzy in my cave so I'm ready to "get busy". I clean when I get nervous!
