You know we baked a LOT in the sixties!!
I even made Eclairs as a young thing in the 70's
I especially like this TV with it's many knobs, space theme, and bright red legs! Wish I had one of these too!
I found this little scrap given by a friend, in my orange collection, so it had to be pieced in right??
One of the bakers had to be appliqued.
Remember paper dolls? We were not so fussy in the sixties... we were happy cutting out paper clothes to fit our flimsy cardboard ladies, with little tabs to fold over her shoulders.
The doll stood on a cross piece, and we would place them near each other, "walk" them around, talking for them. Dressed in fancy clothes we wanted to wear, saying fancy things we wanted to say.
"Darling! Do come in and enjoy the TV, it's COLOR don't you know?!"
We would change their clothes often...

Imagine having a sofa like this today! With those awesome shiny painted turquoise legs?? Awesome!
Then having to choose between all of these...
I think this would be a fabulous design for today's family rooms, don't you?Which one would you choose? To watch your favorite show on one of these TV's...
