Our 60's Room Inspired by The Beatles...50 Years Ago Today

February 9, 1964.
Ah yes, I can still feel the excitement of my fourteen year-old heart pulsing to the beat of She Love You by The Beatles.  ...And my God, the way they shook that "long" hair of theirs!

Fast forward 50 years, and I'm grateful that my heart is still beating at all! Over the years, my hubby and I have had fun reminiscing and commemorating the 60's era by building a little shrine of sorts that we call The 60's Room. This seemed like the perfect day to blog about it.

Turn up the volume on a Beatles tune, and take a walk down Memory Lane with us. Enjoy!
There they are...that's where it all started. The Beatles.

Flower Power & Peace Sign quilt I designed and made to compliment the room. Rotary phone still works.

How's this for a serious radio? It still works, but it's huge!

Don't you love the Jetson-style coffee carafe? Memba those plastic ashtrays--back when everyone smoked. And that's a vintage 60's cassette tape recorder!

(Sorry about the glare.) These are original Fillmore West handbills.

Hope you enjoyed seeing our 60's room.

Many thanks to The Beatles for all of the endless joy they gave us.
Peace.

    1. That's so weird that you would have the same clock radio! This one belonged to my aunt. When she passed away a few years ago, everyone in the family thought it would be perfect for the 60's room, and they were right!
