This is my first attempt at participating in Blue Monday at Smiling Sally's blog. I've chosen 3 photos that are near and dear to my heart as they were all part of my idyllic childhood growing up in Illinois.
My first photo is of my American Plastic Bricks by Elgo. I played with these things for hours on end and built houses complete with moving doors and windows. Does anyone remember these? They are from the 50's.
This was my first cookbook! I'm sure that I baked/cooked some things in this cook book, however, I'm glad that I married a man who loves to do the cooking around here. As far as I'm concerned, my kitchen came with the house that is the only reason I periodically walk through it! The copyright in this book is dated 1955.
My beloved Ginny doll by Vogue. She is all original except for her unruly wig. I played with my Ginny dolls constantly. This doll is from the 50's.
These 3 "blue" items conjure up such sweet memories of a childhood that anyone would be happy to remember. Enjoy.
