Back when I was 9 years old, Polaroid instant cameras were all the rage! I really wanted one! However, as a family living in Rochester, NY where Eastman Kodak is found, it only made sense to support our local business by purchasing a Kodamatic camera. I was so excited! My parents even bought a rainbow strap to go with it, because this of course was the year that Punky Brewster began. Punky Brewster was awesome! I especially loved her bedroom! Did you know I asked my Mom to put green carpeting in my room, so that my floor would look like grass? I couldn’t get her to do much else like Punky Brewster’s room, but I was extremely happy with a grass colored rug and yellow walls for the sunshine! I will have to do some more digging around to see if I can find some pictures that I took with this camera.
