Another non subscriber who can see it. Is it maybe loading really slow for you guys who don't see it?

If I have ever seen a devilled egg plate, I didn't know what it was. I like the idea. I'll look for one at Value Village and similar.

Most, but not all, of those dishes made me go .

Know what you mean, I told Craig some of them looked like toxic waste!

It would have been nice if they had at least added the name of the dish! Some of those molded concoctions were difficult to tell what they were made from! I guess those olive green appliances were inspired by all the olive dishes being made!

Descriptions are to the right of the photos, above the ad for the magazine. Not very good placement, for sure.

I didn't see appliances. Are you talking about the actual TV show, which I have never seen?

"Avocado" was a very popular colour for appliances in that era. So was "coppertone".

taxy, you missed "Harvest Gold". Our next-door neighbor to our first house had that for the porcelain fixtures in their main bathroom. Still, it was better than their pink-white-and-black half-bath.


I couldn't get the link to open either, but I did find a different article that showed pictures of a few of the dishes. Took me back to my childhood! Our daughter has my Mom's two deviled egg plates, and I remember Mom making that Crown Jewel Mold jell-o and whipped cream "cake" for my birthday a couple of times. Not because I requested it, but because it was evilly hot on a couple of them when I was a kid! Momma was NO dummy!

Back in the 60's we had a turquoise wall oven, cooktop, and range hood. The wall oven was similar to this one. It was all the rage back then.

I thought "Harvest Gold" was slightly after the astronaut era. I was living in Denmark at the time of all the moon landings, so I might have missed the arrival of "Harvest Gold".

The astronaut era went into the '70s. My parents had a new home in the early '70s with Harvest Gold appliances and wallpaper with huge gold and orange flowers.

Tomato Jello? That is what oozes out of toxic waste.
