I found this old photo from 1961
That is most likely my birthday cake. My baby brother would have been seven and my other baby brother almost one.
This photo was taken in the first remodeled kitchen at the farm.
My mother made my baby brothers shirt and that bib overhauls my other baby brother is wearing.
She sewed the curtains too they were a pale yellow with a brown design.
Note the days of the week flour sack embroidered towels hanging next to the old rotary dial wall phone...with a short cord...it was beige.
The plaster of paris fruit hung in the old kitchen too...and must have been a favorite of my Moms since it appears in the new kitchen. The new kitchen had birch cupboards with stainless steel hardware...and a double sink. The linoleum on the floor was a medium green color...it was a tiny hex pattern...I scrubbed it many times.
