Password game, one of Nana's favorites. She liked to watch the TV version, as well, hosted by Alan Ludden with contestant Betty White. Alan and Betty later married.

"Tangee is a different color on everyone! For over 70 years..." Nana's favorite lipstick. She used the "Natural" one which was orange in the tube, but turned a lovely rose color on her lips.

Beeman's Gum. Always in the front of the silverware drawer at Nana's house and often in her purse, too. Still love the flavor of that gum--it takes me back every time.

Mmmm... Honeysuckle.

Nana decorated tea towels, dishtowels, dresser scarves... all with beautiful silk embroidery.

Nana's favorite colors, rose and aqua.

Nana's Teapot. While Papa was stationed in Germany, Nana picked up a beautiful set of china made by Krautheim Franconia. It sits in my china cabinet today, a beautiful reminder of her.

Nana LOVED the Lennon Sisters on the weekly Lawrence Welk Show.

Nana loved to float a large dahlia bloom in a shallow plate as centerpiece. Papa grew a variety of dahlias, some of them nearly the size of a dinner plate.
