Merry Mamie Eisenhower ChristmasHappy happy, merry merry, everyone. I have a punch list about a mile long to get ready for Christmas, so I’m clocking out and will be back with more retro escapades on Dec. 26. Above: A precious Christmas card made by Hallmark for Mamie Eisenhower in 1960. All images in this post courtesy The Eisenhower National Historic Site.

    A happy Christmas to Pam and all who through their exploits have motivated me to work on my place and given me ideas for future projects. Also a special thought for those of us who have to work through Christmas to keep things going

    Ditto to all the thoughts and good wishes already said. Merry Christmas Pam and thank you for this great blog! So much work and research goes into in and it doesn’t go unappreciated! It’s a wonderful resource!

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all the other fellow retro renovators who read the blog! Enjoy time with your friends and family in your “retro” homes.

    Merry Christmas, Pam!

    I’d also like to chime in that you and this site have made such a significant contribution to my understanding and enjoyment of the 1950s home we purchased last year. Thanks for all the inspiration, ideas and cheerleading you offer here and on Facebook daily!

    Thank you, Michael and others. You are all so sweet. I am also immensely grateful for all the avid readers and commenters — who make this endeavor all the more special to me. Honestly, it’s you all that keep me going — into Year #5 of the blog now!!!

    I heard Alan Sherman’s “12 Days of Christmas” on the radio this morning. Those would be some cool retro gifts to have lined up in a row!

    Happy Happy to all the retrorenovators!

    I “won” my first tinsel tree on shopgoodwill.com yesterday! I don’t know what size it is, and I have another bid on a 4 1/2 ft on on another auction site. I will keep one and sell the other.
    When you live in a retro world you really have to plan ahead, so we are setting aside decorations for 2012 at our house.

    Merry, merry, very merry to you, Pam! Thank you so much for your wonderful blog and your gracious treatment of your readers. I love the way you build community. And of course, I love the topic of you blog!

    I blogged many years ago, but frankly, I fed up with the snarkiness and immaturity of many bloggers out there. This year I found your blog and had faith again that blogging could be fun, respectful, sane, welcoming, and informative. Thank you, thank you!
