Old iron bedsteads
I grew up sleeping in iron beds like this. Flat metal springs with a mattress, no box springs. However some of our beds had Mom's homemade feather beds on them for extra softness and warmth.
My childhood bed ... Still have!
40s/50s chenile candlewick bedspreads. Nearly everyone had them. Mostly solid colors--It reminds me of visiting relatives when I was a kid. Miss them.
It seems like Daddy was always perched on this step stool drinking coffee from one of the white crockery cups with the black designs.

Gasp!!! This was one of the salt and pepper shakers in Mam-maw's collection and of course one of the most fascinating for all the kids.

This is pretty much what Mam-maw's salt and pepper shaker cabinet looked like. Plain,anadorned, and overflowing with her collection it occupied a place in a corner of the big living / dining room until she moved from that house after Pap-paw died in 1967.
This could be their front fence except for the missing iron wagon wheel trellis supporting the Honeysuckle over the gate. This is beautiful.

Mam-maw had an old glass china cabinet literally filled with her salt and pepper shaker collection. One of our favorites was the the little t.v. set just like this one. She didn't have the JFK in his rocker.

Their house was faced with white ship-lap siding and black trim on window screens and screen doors. The simple wrought iron porch supports were yellow as was the lawn swing and all the lawn chairs. The front screen door had the grille with the bird pictured at the right of this image. It's one of the most iconic images on this board. That could be Mam-maw about to go through that door - coming home after delivering her Stanley House Products.

I have this bird door. Now I just need the house to go with it!
Their front door had this kind of grille only with a different design. But it could be at their house looking out at that wooded view. At this angle you would have seen the yellow lawn swing sitting in that little grove of trees.

Before cable (rabbit ears) Ours had tin foil wrapped around them. They seemed to work better that way.
There was a yellow step stool just like this one in their yellow kitchen. I can still here the steps squeek as they were unfolded from under the seat.

As you drank from the plastic cup, the image would undress....and dress back up as you filled the cup!
Oh yes. Ladies had clothing on. Pour in a cold drink, and the clothing would 'disappear' - caused great hilarity at parties.
Mangle ironer - I remember one of these in a back bedroom. I never saw my grandmother ironing at all, much less using this thing. Her's was alwys closed up. I remember seeing it opened once. I thought (and still do) that this is one of the strangest looking inventions ever.

...Naturally, had to do all the "flatwork" on these...but my mother could even do mens dress shirts perfectly on an electric mangle...
We would cross this bridge on our most regular route to Mam-maw and Pap-paw's house. when we left their hose late in the night Daddy would stop the pick-up on the bridge,turn out the lights and just sit there for a few seconds - pretty spooky with the exhaust billowing up in the red brake lights.. An urban legend developed around this bridge before it was closed, demolished and replaced with another bridge at another location not to far downstream.

The living room sofa was a lot like this although the room had a more shadowy atmosphere with darker woods. The frieze upholstery always felt scratchy to me when I was little. I remember late nights dozing here as the grown-up conversation from the kitchen drifted in and out of my head.

Depending on the number of people gathered at table, two or three pressed back chairs like this shared space with a couple of chrome dinette chairs and sometimes a bench on the wall side. Looking at this chair makes me smell strong coffee and fresh green onions in a glass of water on the table.

A pie safe made excusively for General Mills Foods - One like this occupied an important space in their yellow kitchen. I think it may have been one of these General Mills models. The tin was still shiney when we were kids. They used it for extra storage space and it always smelled of vanilla wafers.

Maytag Wringer Washer - This is what Mam-Maw used to wash clothes. She got an automatic washer/dryer eventually but I remember she was still using this one in 1966. It lived in their garage.
