This cuckoo clock belonged to Grandpa Carter and hung in the living room near his recliner and smoke stand. It is still working order and is proudly displayed in my living room where its rhythmic ticking gives a cozy feel and the cuckoos keep us aware of the time.

Our milk came in glass bottles with colorful foil lids...this is a vintage bottle from the Maplehurst Dairy, Indianapolis, Indiana. The cream was on the top and had to be shaken into the milk or could be removed for coffee or cooking purposes.

A family friend, Ted Tucker, was our milkman for many years. He drove for Maplehurst Dairy out of Indianapolis. His wife,Dutch, was a half-sister to my aunt, Ella May Carter who lived a few doors down from us.

A galvanized, insulated milk box sat on our front porch for many years...our dairy was the Maplehurst Dairy, Indianapolis, Indiana.
Can't wait til I can unpack my Berwick Creamery milk box and display it with its milk bottles.
The milkman carried the glass bottles of milk in a wire basket such as this...the products were then put into the insulated milk box sitting on the porch. Our dairy was Maplehurst Dairy out of Indianapolis.

We were given an old upright piano and I used the John Thompson books for beginning students to learn to play a few songs, but never had lessons. The piano was in very bad disrepair and was later made into end tables!

We had an old upright piano very similar to this to practice my piano lessons on.Thank you Mom&Dad for paying for all my piano lessons and making me practice before I could go away with my friends.

This was similar to the bassinette that newborns were placed in during their first few weeks in the family. The bed was often kept in the parent's bedroom; once this was outgrown the infant went into a crib of its own.
Portable Cribs, 70 Yrs, Parents Bedrooms, Great Grandchildren, Extra Ruffles, Baby Bassinet, Grandchildren Slept, Yrs Ago
First portable 'crib'. Kept in the parent's bedroom; often wrapped in layers of ruffles and fabric.
All three of us girls slept in this, basket could be lifted out and moved from room to room, into the car (no seat belts). Once too big for the basket, moved into crib. Often had extra ruffles.
Old baby bassinet. Rickety, rickety!
We still have my Dad's, his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren slept in it also
Just like mine! 70 yrs ago!

Coal Oil lamps. My mother had her aunt's antique lamp.

combine 1/2-cup baking soda, 1/4-cup borax and hot water to form a thin paste. Pour over the tile, scrub and rinse. If it leaves a residue on the grout after rinsing, dip a clean cloth in white vinegar and wipe the tile down again. GROUT CLEANER
