I’m taking my summer vacation (nothing too exciting, but a much needed real break — want to finish a big writing project, work on the dollhouse, get stuff in the garage for a tag sale — go swim every day in Laurel Lake!) For possibly the first time EVER, I am REALLY not going to look at the blog — therefore, all comments are set to go into moderation. We will be back to set them free, respond, and with all-new stories on July 20. Meanwhile, enjoy some of these favorites from 2015 so far. xoxo – Pam

    Hi Pam. I am trying to locate an oven rack for my vintage GE wall oven, like yours but with oven door window and in turquiose. I have hunted high and low to no avail. I can send numbers and measurements. Is this what you do? Or can you help?I tried to access the posting site on vintage appliances about a yeara go and gave up. I don’t understand these things. Thanks for any help and best wishes, Jane (Victoria,BC)

    Hi Pam and Kate! I’ve been scouring your pages but I don’t think I’ve seen anything mentioned – have you been watching the First Astronauts Wives Club? Recently on the show the families moved from Florida to Houston, into all-new homes… and I swear I caught a glimpse of kitchens with steel cabinets in the most recent episode! I saw turquoise in one, and a pale yellow in the other. Alas, I couldn’t back it up to double-check!
