    When you are only nine….if is FUN to celebrate your birthday!

    Congratulations girls! I love this site, even more now that we’re restoring our 1948 rancher. 😉
    Thought I’d say that I just saw some pink boomerang Wilsonart (I think) on CL. Not big pieces, but maybe for a project like that cool vanity I just saw here.
    Anyway, kudos to you both! When we get moving again on our project ($$ of course) we’ll send pics!

    ONLY-9 years? Seems like we’ve been doing this a lot longer! This site has been an amazing resource and a big help, though I must admit extreme jealousy over the big renovations that people make.

    Happy Birthday! I haven’t been with you the whole time, I wish I had! I so enjoy your stories! I grew up in a midcentury ranch house, I don’t know if it still exists,so I enjoy the visual treats.

    I just found your fabulous website this year. It is so wonderful. Always save it to read for when I have plenty of time to enjoy it. I lived through those special days and your posts and info bring back so many wonderful memories. I so wish I had appreciated this style sooner, as when we moved into this house we had a 50’s bathroom and kitchen and tore them out. I could really kick myself. Amazing how one’s style preferences change over the years. Keep up the great work. Happy birthday.

    Happy birthday Pam, Kate, & Retrorenovation!!

    Happy Birthday Retro Renovation! Love your site, Pam, and all the helpful information. I have been a lover of everything mid-century modern for many years now and it was so great to happen on your site a few years ago. I have enjoyed it ever since. (P.S.–If you are looking for a new Kate, I’m your woman!, except I’m on the East Coast but guess I could help you remotely!)
