Some cool stuff for your carousel! Reply pam kueber says August 11, 2011 at 12:50 pm ohhh, i heard…. need to do a carousel for sure! Reply Ann-Marie Meyers says August 11, 2011 at 1:02 pm Actually, I have lots of drawers to clean. My Conant Ball dressers and desk that I bought for peanuts on a local auction were delivered, and I have to get the cigarette smell out of them. Lots of fresh air, baking soda and Howard products! Reply pam kueber says August 11, 2011 at 7:36 pm Another tip someone told me about once was cedar chips — like the kind used in hamster cages. I don’t know if it really works… I need to see your Conant ball dressers and desk next time we have an Uploader, Ann-Marie! Reply Jody B. says August 11, 2011 at 7:29 pm Hi, Pam. I’ve been a reader for months now. I’ve grown to love your site and look forward to checking it out every morning with my cup of coffee. Thank you for having this site. I’ve been a lover of 50s items for a long, long, time. Because of your site, I’m in the process of redoing my kitchen. I found a place in North Judson, Indiana that has enought aqua boomerang laminate to do my kitchen. I hope your maintenance is completed soon. Keep up the great work you do for lovers of vintage things! 🙂 P.S. I love your kitchen!!! Reply pam kueber says August 11, 2011 at 7:35 pm Hi Jody, it’s so nice that you’ve come out of “lurker” status and made a comment. Keep ’em coming!!! You are so kind with your comments, thank you! Be sure to take lots of photos of your kitchen before and after — and send them to me when you are ready for prime time! Reply Trina says August 11, 2011 at 8:36 pm Well – I didn’t cleanout any drawers but it was a perfect day to wash the windows. I have been putting this off for a while now and tonight, as I look out of my clean windows, I know it was a day well spent.

Reply pam kueber says August 12, 2011 at 11:38 am yup: always makes me feel better! Reply Jana (Berniecat) says August 12, 2011 at 8:09 pm ok, ok,…. I thought I might go through withdrawal, but you made up for it with the great posts on hudees and the doorbells. I love your blog and the wonderful work that you do. I’m like Marion… you are the first site that greets me in the morning and you put a smile on my face. Thanks for all of the great work you do. P.S. I didn’t clean out a drawer, but does a closet count? 🙂 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
