There's something very 1930's to me about a dishpan. I don't know why that object in particular. But for me it conjures up the Waltons, Edna Spaulding in Places in the Heart, and my own grandmother. She was still using a dishpan even into the sixties.
A dishpan is just so practical. Both before a meal and after. Today I used it to carry my dishes out on the lawn. After they've been used, they can go right back in again. I could even pour hot water in it and wash them.
Life was hard in those days, but in many ways I think folks might have been smarter then. . . .
I think this cloth is late thirties/early forties.

Vintage ironstone bowls, pitcher, and enamelware dishpan.
Vintage hand crochet napkins peaking like whipped cream in a soda glass.
Love this cookbook from the Savannah bakery "Back in the Day." It's SO vintage!
Vintage basket patterned quilt. I didn't have a centerpiece, and this makes a nice backdrop for everything.
My vintage Belgian duvet cover as an underskirt again.

I hope you enjoyed going "Back in the Day" with me!
And I hope your week is going great!
