Preconceived Notions ......

I bought a bunch of vintage jewelry at an estate sale. The original owners have passed, the lady was well in her 80's. Everything in the woman's jewelry was beads, pearls, rhinestones etc. All match-matchy and just what you would think you would find. The man's items were old pen knives, Zippo lighters, tie pins, & pen/pencil sets. The closets were full of house dresses on her side. Mr. Rodgers type cardigans, slacks, flannel shirts, & hats on his side. I was smiling, imagining the time where it was common to be married 50 years to the same person....& how lucky they were to grow old together.  The house was large and had several bedrooms still decorated with vintage children's items. In my mind I always think of scenes from The Waltons in my head at such houses. I know this is unrealistic. But I still have these pleasant thoughts nonetheless.

 Imagine my surprise finding this. Well, all righty then. Perhaps not so much like The Waltons  after all.
