40s/50s chenile candlewick bedspreads. Nearly everyone had them. Mostly solid colors. Original pinner sez: My grandparents had these types of beds. It reminds me of visiting them when I was a kid. Miss them.
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.

The honeysuckle grew all around the house on the woven wire fence and over the front gate on a wagon wheel shaped support.

honeysuckle.... as kids we would pinch the bottom of a bloom off and suck out the nectar~ah, good times I miss the vine honeysuckle! Up here in NW Massachusetts, the honeysuckle bushes here have no fragrance! I think it depends on the humidity!
Honeysuckle. Draws money, success, and quick abundance; Aids persuasiveness and confidence, sharpens intuition. Ring green candles with honeysuckle flowers or use honeysuckle in charms sachets to attract money. Crush the flowers and rub into the forehead to enhance psychic powers.
We would harvest blooms from the honeysuckle bushes. Then sit in a cirlce and sugar up ;D
Sweet Honeysuckle ... #honeysuckle #flowers #gardening
honeysuckle ~ my favorite smell in the world!!! :)
The smell of honey suckle!

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.

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.

Ironrite Mangle Ironer
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.

Mangle ironer- My mother had one of these. She ironed everything! She taught me how to iron on it when I was about 8 or 10 years old. I ironed tablecloths and sheets on it. My sisters were pro's at it.

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.
