It's Been Four Years! And a Blog Giveaway

I can hardly believe it!  Four years ago today I gave blogging a try and posted for the first time.  I never dreamed that all of you would help turn my blog into such a cheerful corner of retro and vintage fun.  But you have.

You all are so kind and thoughtful and incredibly supportive.  I heart you!
You've stuck with me as I continue to obsess about vintage tablecloths.

You've read lots of posts about our farm life (and then our move to the big city).

You've read all about our beagle Twyla.

Occasionally, Captain Project gets a mention.

You've followed my cooking adventures.

Heard about all sorts of projects.

You've endured endless posts about my shower cap production.

And apron making.
And, of course, some general silliness.
Despite your eyeball rolling and probably wanting to kill yourselves...

You've stuck with me!

I can never accurately put into words how much I appreciate you ~ every one of you who's actively followed my blog and every one of you who pops by now and then.  Well, Retro Revival simply would not be the same!

As a little token of my appreciation, I'm giving away a set of my pot mitts.

(I have these in all sorts of fabrics so email me at Cindy@RetroRevival.Biz if you'd like to buy a set.)
On December 31st, I'll draw a winner from those of you who leave a comment on this post.
Thank you again for helping make blogging such a joy!

I just love bloggers, they are our imaginary friends who sometimes know more about us than the ones who visit us personally in our homes! Your post made me laugh out loud. Congrats on staying with us all for four years!

Haha! You are just such a joy! I have been rolling with laughter this whole post as you have many times over the years! I shared this with my daughter and she is enjoying it just the same as we are laughing together! Thanks for the joy!
I am so happy for all your success and wish you more in the future.
I also want to say thank you, because it was your blog originally 3+ years ago that prompted me to start my very own blog!! You are an inspiration to me!
God bless you and your family.
