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.

Always had one in the kitchen...great for reaching stuff on the top shelves in kitchen cabinets.
The honeysuckle grew all around the house on the woven wire fence and over the front gate on a wagon wheel shaped support.

honeysuckle is a host and nectar plant in my garden.
Honeysuckle is another great pick if you want to bring butterflies into your yard. This easy-care vine doesn't grow quite as large or rampantly as trumpet vine, so it's a good pick for smaller-space gardens. (childhood memories) use to pull the center out and lick the little bit of honey with siblings
Honeysuckle vines, aww the sweet smell on a hot summers night.

Honeysuckle--What is this? A walk down memory lane or something? Goodness...
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.

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.

Another pinner remarked: "Remember these old screen doors from the '50s? They're in demand now, but just try to find any!"
reminds me of the 1960's, my next door neighbors had this on their front door.
Remember these old screen doors from the 50's? I remember "don't let the door slam".

Before cable (rabbit ears). Wow do these bring back memories. Dad would have us move the antenna around until he got a good picture, then I remember him wrapping foil around them for better reception.
Before cable (rabbit ears) OMA had them on her TV she was always fixing them because the reception was bad. Good childhood memories
Before cable- (rabbit ears) ...only thing missing is the tin foil! =)
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.

One of these (just one) sat on a shelf above their huge kitchen stove. The lady wore a flamenco or carribean style dress on the outside but look on the inside and VA-VA, VOOM!

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.

We had one of these roller style ironing machines in my garage when i was growing up in the 60's and it was already quite old but great condition. Mom showed me how to use it and it was a lot of fun. Model 85 -- The Most Common Model
A trip down memory lane--my mother's old Ironrite Mangle. I learned how to do shirts on this ... would you believe it!! LOL Thanks for the pic of the model from our childhoods Denise Wecker-Seipke!
Mangle ironer- aunt marian had one of these.
...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. It could be pretty spooky at night. 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.

1954 Chevrolet Bel Air - they had this car after the '53. I never did know why they traded from one to the other. This was in the early sixties so it wasn't like trading to a new car.
