Talking about dolls, I have two and they are both 60 yrs or more. A black mama doll and a walking doll, held onto them in case I had g.daughters but that won't happen now so wonder if I might get rid of them, in good condition, But where to get rid of them,any suggestions?
Yes those 70 colours the oranges and advocado were popular then and lots of the 70 things seem to be coming back.

Oh, yes,m good ol' Tupperware! The earlier "clear" pieced sdeem to have held up the best. At least mine did. i got a few of the older colored pieces from my Mom's and some of the lids have gotten really brittle with age. then again, that could have been her house! My sisters and I each got "walking" dolls for Christmas one year back in the 50s. The plastic/rubber face on mine is still good, but my sisters' dolls got scary sticky/melty! Ugh. Adam took them and uses them for "scary" still lifes at the studio school! LOL

How about those Pyrex mixing bowl sets we all seemed to get for either wedding shower presents or wedding presents? Mine was the green set and I'm missing one because I dropped it. Luckily it had mashed potatoes in it at the time, so all the broken pieces of glass stayed in one spot! LOL The large bowl has always been my chocolate chip cookie making bowl! Still my favorite, even though I have other large bowls. There's just something about the shape of the Pyrex bowls that made them perfect for stirring stuff!

Mine was avocado green as well but had orange decorative myshrooms to hang on the kitchen wall. The seventies definitely had it's unique colors.

Char - I bet you could find instructions for it online. Lots of manuals, etc. can be found and are free.

Since I'm mostly off dairy yogurt is not on my list now.  I love it, but it doesn't love me.  

Okay, who else (married in the 70's) have or had fondue pots?  I had an orange one and an avocado green one (70's colors).  

Comment by Charlotte Gustavson yesterday

Wow! Did we all have those things in the 70s? lol I have a Salton brand yogurt maker, but I have no idea where the directions for using it are located! I remember that you have to start with a small bit of plain yogurt because you need the culture, and there was a special thermometer (still floating around in the "odd" utensil drawer!) to test the heated milk, plus, I think, a dial on the top of the yogurt maker itself to tell you when it would be ready. I remember thinking a short time ago that Pete and Erika might enjoy making their own yogurt, since they're into that whole self sufficiency sort of thing we were all doing back then! lol I'm sure the directions are around here somewhere, since we're still occasionally finding the booklets for other long gone small appliances! ;D
