A very 70s Christmas

Click on picture for a better look

Jarrod from The Monroe County Historical Sociiety sent me photos of an awesome display they've set up for the Holiday season. It's a complete 1970s living room complete with vintage furniture shag carpeting, a tree with original 70s ornaments and enough toys to make ten awesome 70s Christmases. 
Seriously look at the Toy love in that shot and see how many of those toys you got for Christmas.

If that wasn't enough, they old catalogs to paw through and the TV blasts vintage commercials. I honestly wish I lived closer.





Jarrod also got into the spirit of things by dressing the part for the opening, he claims he's no Brick Mantooth but I think he did just fine.

If you live near Sparta, Wisconsin, this looks like a really fun afternoon especially if you're a regular reader here.

Check out their website for more info.

Amazing. Love it all and would be just staring at those toys for hours. On top of the TV is a tissue box holder made with plastic canvas and yarn. My grandmother made one almost identical to that one back in the day. So great.

Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of christmas. See the link below for more info.
