Here's a close up so you can see I added a photo of little me standing in the kitchen back in the early 1960s.
And for an after photo I took a view of the same part of the kitchen today. Not a whole lot has changed in this kitchen in years. (only a few new stoves and refrigerators in that time. And a coat of paint on the cupboards.)
We keep our favorite card games and dominoes near by for a game at a moment's notice and of course every one's favorite- Play-Doh. The Mary Engelbreit tin is filled with shaped/themed decks of cards.
