Update: If you’re reading this, the a.m. changes to the blog have come through and it’s onward and upward. However, due to the technowork, no daily dose today. Go clean out a drawer instead — it will feel GOOD!

    You’ve become the first site I go to in the morning. That’s not to say my morning starts very early as you can see by the time of this post.

    Thanks for all your hard work on your site. I realli do enjoy it!

    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!

      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!

    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!!!

      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!

    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.

    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? 🙂
