Meatloaf, spam, and hamburger helper may no longer be on the menu, but it doesn’t mean we have to forget everything from our past. If you’re looking for a little flashback, click on over to Lara Long and her store, Plaid Pony Vintage. From clothing to housewares, Lara even carries these neat polaroid pictures for $50 each taken by her husband, also available as notecards, $18 for a pack of six.

Look at this stuff, is it not the best? Where’s Ward and June Clever anyway, and those days of domestic perfection? I actually owned these McDonald’s action series glasses… I was born in the 70’s, so I remember most of these things. By the way, is the yellow and white lamp and doxie pillow not the best? I love the shine on that lamp, although it’s plastic, it would look great on one of those white lacquered desks with a white shade, banded with a slim ribbon trim in a white/yellow chevron pattern, perhaps?

    I remember those Mcdonald Glasses and owls always remind me of my Grandma’s massive collection of owl items.

    We had those McDonald glasses when I was little!
    The deer piece to the left of the glasses kind of reminds me of something from Victoria’s (sfgirlbybay) home tour that she had on her cocktail table as an organizer. Pretty cute!
