My Grandmother had those mushroom cannisters. And the microwave, stereo, and television. My Grandfather worked at Sears in the 70s. It was spooky to see them all in the same place again.

Wow, that brings back memories. Not all of them good. *laugh* We owned those cannisters.

I have the 1979 version of that same microwave, and I will not trade it for a more current one. How else would I dye my wool?

The one thing about that TV and remote. That was in the day where the remote was connected to the TV with a long cable. Nothing says fun like a cord across the living room floor to trip up Mom.

Tee! I think I remember that Wishbook, too . . . ah, those were the days!

And, did you notice--the PC is retroactive--even the 1978 Wishbook is for the "Holiday" season.

Dude, the kids in the Frosty pic are freaking me out. They're all zombie like. Probably had too many hot dogs.

I think we should throw that kid out of school for kissing the girl. Or something.

....er, does this mean I have to return the Santa pinata I just picked up for the New Year's Eve party?

My mom had the mushroom teapot - a Christmas gift from one of her students when she taught elementary school. When we cleaned out Mom's things after she died, my sister and I originally put the teapot on the yard sale table, but after a while I took it off and kept it because I decided it was so awful it was fun. :-)

So I am now the proud owner of a vintage 1970's Sears Mushroom Teapot.

ohmygosh, my parents had that exact TV until, like, a month ago. And I know we've still got the mushroom plates, just saw them at Thanksgiving! LOL - thanks for reminding us of all that stuff!

Happy Holidays!

Oh scary - I knew lots of people who had the whole mushroom set. Some of it MAY have lived in my house but I think I am blocking the memory out...

Good gawd, we had that microwave in my house when I was growing up! And I have the Merry Mushroom canister set in my cupboard. I was 4 in good ol' 1978 so your post brought back great memories.

I know I'm days late, but we had that microwave, too. I remember that Grandma couldn't go in the kitchen when it was on because it would affect her pacemaker detrimentally.

I'm late too, but we STILL have that microwave and after literally dozens of moves around the country it still works like new.

I really really want the 8-track/cassette/LP system! But then, my hubbie and I both have large vinyl collections. With that gadget, I could start an 8-track collection and have something to listen to it on!
