I’m guessing the pink plastic grapes and the orange dishes that match the plastic oranges (I think they came as a set).
The doggie? The Where-the-Wild-Things-Are Scary Plant in the background? You be the judge.
If you can’t see anything interesting, feel free to make things up.
Slightly boring Fun Fact: I went to the Green Stamps store once with my mom in the late 60s – yup, there was at least one in Manhattan! And I don’t remember much, but there seemed to be a lot of brass tube-y items like cheap TV stands. I don’t think we went back after the one time. But she used to paste those Green Stamps in the little books like nobody’s business. Did anyone else go to the Green Stamps store? Do tell!
My friend Barbara at the delightful if I didn’t have a sense of humor has asked some of us to post a favorite picture on their blogs. Now about a million years ago I posted some family photos over at Virtual Dime Museum, my history blog, and one of my favorite photos ever happens to be over there…so I am going to direct you to this photograph, taken in the early 1890s at Rockaway Beach in Queens, which features my grandmother and her brothers and sister.
I said it over on Virtual Dime Museum but it probably bears repeating, because I know that not everyone reads both blogs – I am working seriously on a mystery novel (which takes place in Victorian-era Brooklyn, with a female detective, so VDM links up with my research pretty well, mostly). I am really having to consciously allocate daily work time for it. So – I will really try to keep up with all of my favorite blogs, and comment when I can, and Twitter (and do a little bit of EC) – when I can, just not as much as before…
