  1. Beautiful colors, Amy. 🙂

  2. What a sweet and wonderful reminiscence! The hallway in the home where I lived from the time I was 12 until I got married started where the living room and kitchen met and connected three bedrooms and one bathroom (there were four of us kids plus my parents! How did we manage with one bathroom?!). My Mom hung our school pics along one wall. I can still see it all so well. Thanks for the memories!

    1. Memories are good to revisit, so happy to have memories…..I know right?! One Bathroom for 6 of us too! I can remember the wallpaper in our bathroom too! Oh yes, the school pictures hung proudly :). thank you for sharing!

    I loved going down memory lane with you. It brought back similar fond memories for me. Thank you! We too lived in a ranch style home in the 60’s & 70’s. The end of the hall held the linen cupboards. My spring cleaning job was emptying and reorganizing the top and bottom cupboards. I remember pulling everything out and sitting in a pile of towels, sheets, table covers and doilies! The hall was long enough to play catch, chase mechanical toys or bowl down whatever items we could stack. There was a pocket door that could be closed off and used to hide behind and listen to the grown ups visit, hear television programs after bedtime, or muffle the sound of the sliding door at the opposite end of the house while sneaking out to play with neighbor kids in summer. Oh my, the memories.

    1. Loved reading your story. Memories are a good thing to revisit…..I feel like i’m smiling each time I am living in a memory. Love your linens, doilies and such 🙂 ….gosh sitting on the good ones! Thank you for sharing!
