But I'm just as happy to find reminders of things from my childhood. This table and chairs has got to be related to the set that we had for most of my childhood. The vinyl on our chairs was a darker brown and different pattern, and our table was more of a stretched out octagon.
The style is similar. And our chairs had those same loose little feet. The whole set wobbled, not quite as badly as my own kitchen table and the evil twin that it replaced.
I hadn't thought about that old table and chairs in years. Suddenly, I wanted to go through baby books and find out how close my memory is to the reality. I knew there were pictures of the table from birthday parties, but I wasn't sure how much of the chairs and legs would show.
Jackpot! We found pictures with the table. Although I've got to admit that right now I'm more interested in that wallpaper. My memory had muted the colors.
And here's a better shot of the table in my parents' first apartment. Isn't that the sweetest little kitchen ever? That bookcase in the front left corner is the one that's up in my sewing room, holding my collection of vintage children's mysteries.
