Back yard Chickens I see one thing missing from this scene. It's the hens scratching favorite plants out of the ground as they dig a pit in the dirt to dust themselves. The downside of having free range hens!

1970s roller skates .. we all had a pair of these in the 60s - loved the "key" to tighten with!

1970's Collectable / Antique Children's Roller Skates

Partington - we played on the square at the bottom of the road all summer and when the sun shone we would roller skate to school.

Under the candlewick bedspread, the paisley patterned eiderdown and the blankets (mine were pink) came these candy striped flannelette sheets ... and they were soft and soothing.

This is what you did if the fire was 'sulky' and wouldn't burn up. It helped create a draught to draw up the flames. This lady should have stopped before the fire got this far - she is in danger of setting the paper alight! https://yooniqimages.com/

Calamine lotion used in the 1950s for sun burn, poison ivy blisters. It is a chalky pink color. Calamine is either a mixture of Zinc Oxide with about 0.5% ferric oxide or a zinc carbonate compound. In a 1992 press release, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced that no proof had been submitted showing calamine to be safe for use or effective in treating bug bites, stings & rashes from poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac.

For mosquito bites and poison ivy, left a big pink dot on your skin. Also we were smothered with it when we got chicken pox to stop the itching!
