Today’s Top 5

Both, please!

I would like the curtains AND the couch!

Gingham

Her upper. Just wanted to type that word.

My Shirt

My favorite Hawaiian shirt is identical to those curtains.
My wife hates it. I love that shirt.

Happy Days

The Cunningham family had curtains very similar to these.

Sensible, modest woman

This is a very impromptu photograph; this woman didn't even take off her apron. Her eyeglasses are now back in fashion. And the cool cotton dresses (often home sewn) that she and her friend wear are just the thing for a hot summer day (with the essential girdle underneath).

The beautiful curtains were probably an extravagance purchased during the 40's after the war. The pattern is already dated for the 50's Maybe they got those nice wooden venetian blinds at the same time. The old couch was still in good shape; no need to replace that.

Sally's Not Allowed

on the couch.

She might clash with the colors.
