Another photo greeting from the antique shop in Detroit Lakes Minnesota.
Six kids..do you suppose these kids belong to the same family? Or are they all grandkids of Arnie Strand?
Thanks for stopping by. Do come again:)
Having six children was not unusual so I would say the kids are all siblings, children of Mr. and Mrs. Arnie [Arnold?] Strand. I'm guessing the photogragh was taken about 1960. Back then I had very similar drapes in my living room. Oh, how I wish I still had them. Along with some other things, I should start looking for them on eBay, too!
Mr. and Mrs. Arnie Strand no doubt were proud of their children [the smallest girl is truly adorable] but with five girls they probably had five weddings to pay for -- oh my! [and I wonder how many of those marriages "stuck" long-term]
I feel sorry for the Strands' only son. He, being a middle child and only boy with five sisters, must have had many challenges growing up. At least he should not have had to wear any family hand-me-downs, except maybe for a stocking cap and/or scarf from Mr. Strand.
Cute kids and those curtains are a hoot!
I've had no luck yet in searching for similar swell drapes on eBay -- but I'll not give up! Mrs. Strand and I probably would have gotten along really well, too.
