What a fun year we had here on Retro Renovation! Readers seem to love the time capsule houses best of all, so I thought that while Kate and I take some time off to celebrate Christmas with our families, we’d showcase this highlight — our top1- time capsule houses of the year. I counted 26 time capsule houses in 2013 in all. Most of them came from reader tips — THANK YOU and KEEP ‘EM COMING! I played Queen and chose the top-10 based on my assessment of vintage amazingness (Show me something I’ve never seen before) plus reader response. How much fun can one blog have? Quite a bit, that’s for sure! Have a SAFE and happy holiday, everyone. We’ll be back with new stories on Dec. 26.
