I found these pictures off the Internet from someones blog. My memory was instantly jogged into thinking about my childhood. Events and memories started flooding back as soon as I saw these beautiful pink kitchen pictures.
The year was 1957, Christmas, Straight from the Sears and Roebucks catalog, under a Drum table with lion claw feet. The most beautiful set of miniature furniture for my Betsey McCall Doll. Pink tin, just like the ones shown above. I made food for it out of colored clay. I laid there for hours just looking at it. I made up pretend events going on centered around this kitchen. My mother must have thought she was doing me a favor when we moved to our new house about 5 years later. She threw them away. . For years I have looked at flea markets, on line on EBay and have never saw them again, until now. I have put these pictures in a frame. When I sit and look at them, more thoughts of that time come to mind. If I can't have the real thing, a picture will do. I once found the refrigerator and it was all rusted, no doubt the one my mom threw in the dump. I was tempted to purchase it at $45.00. Not a steal, but for nostalgia's sake. My stomach won out and I went to lunch instead. I have on a want list this pink tin kitchen set. I believe I shall have another one day. Not a plastic one, but a real tin one, still in the box. Maybe hid behind the attic rafters or slid behind a wall. I like to Dream big!
