In this week’s edition of Sincerely Fro Me to You, I am going to share with you a glimpse back into the 1970’s.
For those of you that may have missed out on the decade with the best home decor, you are welcome.
And I won’t charge you a fee for these must have ideas.
Let’s take a look, shall we, into my childhood home:
Oh yes, and how, do I remember that awesome vinyl couch. Why the heck don’t we do that anymore?! The perfect fabric for the growing family. (if you can actually call vinyl fabric???)
And my mother was certainly the Martha Stewart of her time. Between decoupage, smocking, and hand-crafted washcloth pillows….she should have had her own TV show.
I would like to know what the HUMUNGO deal was with that horrible dark paneling. Oh, wait, it was the 70’s. Never mind.
And to think I failed to point out the awesome vinyl flooring that strongly resembled bricks.
And how about those slot machines?! Yes, they are real and actually worked. I have no idea if they were legal or not. We never had to move and change our names, so I guess it was all good.
You certainly won’t find any of these decorating ideas in In Style magazine or on HGTV. And this photo has certainly never been in any scrapbook!!
