south side of house
The wooden tray and foot rest did not make it into the 1960s, as I remember my nieces and nephews being secured in the chair by a tea towel around their tummy and then tied behind the chair's back. The face of the chair's back had a decal of an animal (I think it was a cat) with a large head.
The photo clearly shows the exterior of house as it was well into the mid-60s - black tar paper secured with slats of wood. A porch was added to the house sometime after this photo was taken. I think the window on the right was transformed into a door and the porch added to the south and east.
The electric pole in the far right of the photo was located near the dairy barn.

|Vintage Lipton Tea advertisement|
Lipton was the brand of tea that my mother always purchased; however, my favorite brands or Bigelow, Twinings, Murchies, as well as Harney and Sons.
The tea flavors that I enjoy the most are Earl Grey, Lady Earl Grey, English Breakfast, Oolong, Irish Breakfast. I rarely drink fruit flavored or herbal teas and almost never drink green tea because I drank more than my share of green tea in Japan. I do not add any sweetener to my tea and never add milk.
What do you prefer to drink - coffee or tea?

|Jack and Jill|
44 x 54 inches
I finally purchased the walking foot in December.
After man-handling this small quilt around in my limited sewing space, I have admiration for those who use their sewing machine to quilt full-sized quilts.
