This is something that made it on the moving truck when I moved to Fargo. It is one of my treasures….a screen door ornament from the 1950’s. Some people might shake their heads and wonder why but that is just the way I am. I like things (sometimes odd things like this) from the 50’s mainly. It’s funny some people call it “mid-century” but then others think that is stuff from the 70’s. I guess it depends on when you grew up. If I had my way, and my own little house again, I’d decorate with 50’s era furniture. I left behind two oak chairs, a pole lamp with crystals, a ladder back chair, a coffee table, and many other things. It pains me when I think about the stuff that didn’t make it on the truck….but not so much anymore. There comes a time when one must ‘keep a stiff upper lip’. That is an old saying my grandmother used to say. Not sure what exactly it meant but, to myself, I always added: “even though the bottom one is quivering”.
