On another note, we are still house hunting in Smithville. We've narrowed it down to 4, but I'm going to show you my favorite 2. The first one is a 3 bedroom that was built in 1939. It's got awesome wood floors and a detached 2 car garage with a workshop. The second one is much more kitschy, with the original metal roof and an eat - in kitchen. It has 4 bedrooms and was built in 1950. Wish us luck dolls!
I scanned this from my copy of Better Homes and Gardens Decorating Book (1956). I am so in love with this kitchen! I (of course) am a huge lover of pink. I love the pink and yellow together. I'm not one for steel cabinets, but they are very cute in this kitchen.
