Foodarama living by Kelvinator (1959 print ad)

As is often the case, family life at home tends to center around the kitchen...

... but did it ever really look quite like this?

- - Even in 1959, when this Kelvinator refrigerator ad first appeared?

Is this living?

Is this living . . . ?

Well, gotta love the hyperstocked (and organized) freezer & fridge.

Aside from intimations of prosperity & plenty, orderliness seems the deal. So much going on without any muss or fuss.

Plenty is usually messy with dishes used, leftovers brimming over etc.

So this is def. living--with many loose ends trimmed away.

i just wish i have a fridge or any appliances that's big enough. but, that's not how the case is here in europe. i have to go to the grocery store about three times a week. having guests over can be a real pain! oh, and don't get me started with laundry. ugh! regular american-sized appliances are some of the few things i miss in the US.
