I can sure remember the 1950's very well, I probably roller- skated
my way through half of that decade, I was mad about roller skating.
The colour combinations pink and black, and pink and grey, were very
popular. Cream with red accents was trendy too.
My Dad put cupboard doors on the shelves on wall of our kitchen, giving
it a new built in look. The new cupboards were painted cream and Mum
chose red and cream square door handles. I was very impressed with
those square door knobs, they seemed so space age.
Everything seemed space age in the'50's.
For my 10th birthday in the mid fifties I asked for a cup and saucer
which I had seen in a shop window, the saucer was shaped in a triangle!
How cool is that! It had a grey squatty cup and a pink saucer and
was completely different than our old fashioned flowery china. I was
so proud of that cup and saucer, it made me feel space age, modern
and set apart from the rest of the family.
