From the hallway (living room was for company), I could see Mom's little treasures that were breakable atop the coffee table.

Dad was a minimalist, so only a monster ashtray. Until he stopped smoking, then only a big bowl of nuts to crack.

We had that same style nutcracker and bowl, although ours had 4 holes around the nutcracker, that held the nut picks.

@SilleeMee My mother had a cigarette box, with matching ash tray on the coffee table but she didn’t smoke. My father did but I don’t think there were any cigarettes inside.
He had a wooden container for pipe tobacco but didn’t have a pipe.
At least there were no cigars!
Doilies were everywhere. Mama and grandmama made them. I still have them.

I think I still have some of Mom's doilies, too. I'm not planning on placing them on anything in my house like she did...LOL! She even had them in the car!...on the head rests.
