    I wake up with your post first thing every morning while I drink my coffee. While I might be groggy and a little cranky Retro Renovation is always waiting for me all sunshiny and happy. For that I thank you.

    Yea for YOU!

    My grandmother had that same sign in her kitchen!
    I’m taking your suggestion about wallpaper-looking for great ’50 style mermaid/underwater paper for the downstairs 1954 bathroom right now.
    Thanks for the nudge.

      Thank you all, you are so sweet. Stop, though, I can’t take it. Just workin’ hard for a cause that excites me, that’s all!

    Congratulations! I’m glad to see your wallpaper up close. I had assumed it was an atomic print, but, I see it is more colonial. That’s a good way to tie your mod kitchen in with your more colonial house. Love the rooster in the suit — he’s like Foghorn Leghorn, one of my favorite cartoon characters from the 60s! Also, I love green glass. Are those candle holders?

      Hi sumacsue, the wallpaper also has little gold flecks in it, it’s neat. I like how it’s just “strong enough” to complement all those aqua cabinets. The rooster is a leftover from my country days…I like the homey touch. And yes, I think those are candle holders. Although the olive coloring on the glass flakes right off it you touch them – so I don’t. I liked bringing the avocado green into the kitchen!
