Hello readers! Today for my VTT (Vintagr Thingie Thursday) I will talk to you about the hen and the ladies.
First the hen. I saw it 20 years ago in my mother-in-law's trailer. Well not really in the trailer but in the kitchenette attached to the trailer. That trailer (and kitchenette) was sooo 70's I actually had a gag reflex when I first set foot in it.
Everything was brown or orange with beige accents, except the 'bathroom'- a glorified broom closet with a harvest gold chemical toilet. And the hen of course. It was nailed to the wall of the kitchenette ready to accept a bar of soap.
It was quite an experience for a city girl that had never set foot on a camping ground. My mother-in-law would spend most of her summers there chatting with neighbors,sunning and building fires in an old wash tub. She invited us quite often. I learned to love that place. We actually bought it some years later. It was before my vintage phase, so unfortunately a lot of stuff was thrown away, but not the hen! It is now on my window sill in my kitchen, the only surviving piece of the kitchenette (the wind ripped off the roof and the walls collapsed 3 weeks after we sold it AS IS). I never found out what happened to the trailer....
I saw those ladies in a window display of a small shop on Wellington Avenue in Verdun(near Montreal). All had knitted caps and seemed to wait for something....I used to live in Verdun before buying the house and moving to Ile Perrot. I hadn't been there in more than a year and it struck me how most of the shops looked vintage. I had never noticed while I lived there for 4 years...Then again I didn't have the vintage eye back then! LOL
The shop owner was not amused I took a pic of his window....
