through time. These objects are a snap shot of
my wife's childhood. Seeing them is a trip
down Memory Lane for me. Although lost to
the ravages of time, these same things would
have been found in my house back in the 50s.
Her relics are in surprisingly good shape, almost in mint condition. Many of them are still in the original boxes. To a collector, there is a lot of value in yonder attic. A collector will not see them, however. The lot will belong to our daughter.
For laughs, I thought I'd do an Internet scavenger hunt to see how many pictures of her treasures I could find.
From the top left, Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, Uncle Wiggly board game, Sock Monkey, Lamb Chop, Gumby and Pokey, View Master, Pick-Up Sticks, Potholder Loom, aluminum tumblers, Electric Football, and Little golden Books.
There are other treasures up there that aren't mentioned, because I got tired of surfing the web to find decent pictures depicting the objects.
These are just a sampling I thought I'd share with you. How many do you remember? How many did you have?
