So… this is my 500th post. So… I looked back, and it was fun! But boy, it was also exhausting. As many readers have noted, “it must take hours.” Yup. I’m kind of obsessed, but doing the blog makes me very very happy. And, it’s been truly amazing how this social networking stuff works – I feel like I’ve met so many kindred souls.
Heading forward, I of course have more ideas. I’ve started linking back to “classic” posts in the sidebars. I love getting reader questions, and featuring your retro renovation stories. I have, like, 20 of these backed up! And maybe I’ll get to vintage stoves some time soon, ironically, they were my first retro love and I still have not touched the topic. Let me know what you want more of — and I’ll try to deliver! 🙂
So here are some of my favorite posts:
