Souvenir Friday- Dining Area Decked Out For the Holidays

I posted the Monorail sign a while ago and got many requests for a picture of the dining area in my house. For the season, I have placed many of my Holiday decorations and collection of vintage plastic Santa Claus figures from the 1950's along with some smaller trees on a Heywood Wakefield sideboard. If you look closely, you can see some Disneyland Tomorrowland items hiding in there along with some other 1950s Space themed toys and figures. The large Delta airplane hanging on the wall came from the old Circle Vision theater when it was sponsored by Delta. The framed piece under the jet is a nice large color photograph of the Submarine Voyage circa 1959.

And just because she is so cute, here is the latest addition to our family, our kitty Molly Bento. We have had her about a month. We adopted her from a local animal shelter.
