“Talk About the 70's”

Description from Chicky Bear-Tara: Someone mentioned missing the 70's earlier. It reminded me of the afghan I received for a wedding gift. My grandmother made it before she passed and my grandad sent it when I got married the first time. Of course, I loved it because my grandma had made it, but it sure was not my favorite colors!

    Cute, cute! Maybe to go with the orange shag rug? Seriously, it would make a great piece of jewelry for a summer outfit, so I put it into my favs!

    Well, Chicky Bear, I like this pick too!!!You know retro’s in!!! LOL……..

    Speaking of night owls — heeeeeere’s Chicky LE!!! ROTFLOL (note time above ;-) )

    This is very retro, Tara — so retro, in fact, that it has been brought back into fashion by none other than our own Plucky Chick!!! LOL

    I, also, have an afghan that I treasure that my grandmother crocheted for me (also not colors I would’ve chosen). But I WOULD have chosen HER for my grandmother if that’s the way it was done! :D

    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    Lynn, You girls are strange. I remember having olive green in the kitchen, browns, golds, orange….yuck yuck yuck. I didn’t like it much then and still don’t. Just not my favorite colors…especially in combination. But, like I said, I got the afghan in the late 80′s, it was made in the early 70′s and saved for me. The first born grandchildren got one. My male cousin and myself. I will always cherish it, but I won’t use it as a decoration or a couch throw. I’m glad you like retro.

    Wow – looks just like my aunt’s kitchen, still! LOL
    Ya know – I do like this combination. Even though it doensn’t go with anything currently in my house.

    Funny thing is that I just had this fashion discussion with my kids this past weekend, and we all agreed that avocado green and harvest gold could definitely be laid to rest…and now you are resurrecting them all over again. LOL :-)

    I had these colors in my house when we first got married, and then spent years, phasing them out. I do not want avocado green appliances, carpets, or bath tubs ever again—but they came with the house. Pretty at first, but not long term. :-(

    Fun to see it again, just so long as I don’t have to see it first thing in the A.M. ROTFLOL :P

    Very retro! My sister and I were in a wedding in the 70′s with these exact colors! I will make a pick and post a pic of it! LOL Very funny! We also had red, orange, and green SHAG carpet in our t.v. room growing up. Funny thing though…when Jill and I moved out they got new carpet??!!??

  24. Chicky Bear-Tara
    Chicky Bear-Tara says:

    I remember the shag carpets…couches…appliances….everything was in these colors. Did you ever watch “That 70′s Show”. Kitti’s kitchen used to make me laugh because it was just like kitchen’s I had seen. Oh well…glad it’s over and hope it never comes back!

    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Just to clarify, Tara — If you go back up and read what I posted, you will notice that nowhere does it say that I like this color combo. LOL

    What I said was that I treasure the afghan (not it’s colors!). BIG difference. Just didn’t want you to think I’m weird or anything. ;-)

  26. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Harriet, you’re cracking me up! I noticed you waited to look at this until 10:21 AM so you wouldn’t have to see it “first thing in the AM”! LOL

    For those of us who are night owls, 10:21 AM is considered “first thing in the AM”!!! ROTFLOL ;-)

  27. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    When we were first married waaaaaaay back in 1975, our first appliances (kitchen and laundry) were harvest gold. Now we have almond. Wonder what people will say about that in 35 years? LOL
