(Is he THE most adorable Irish Laddie ever?! And it's hard to tell which one is the silly-willie-nillie-old-bear!)
It's quite a milestone he celebrates today ~ It's his first TEN THOUSANDTH hit day on his blog! And what a feat for a blog that only began two months ago!
I first met Hepcat and his wife, the Adorable Mz. Kitty (AKA as Hepkitty) when they came into the store & bought a small retro table from me. Then they came back and purchased a retro liquor cabinet I had for sale. The Adorable Mz. Kitty showed me a small picture of a room in their home. My jaw dropped & I began to wonder what these very sweet & VERY young people were all about and I was dying to see the rest of their home. One way or another I did wangle and invite to their home and I want to tell you, it was like walking through a time warp, or even better, a step onto a page in Sunset Magazine and I could hardly describe to others this amazing home, when one day up pops Hepcat Restorations on the blogosphere! A way to FINALLY share what I'd seen. These kids have amassed THE most amazing collection of retro living I've ever seen.
But Hepcat's blog is not all about showing off his to-die-for-dream house, nope, it's EVERYTHING a blog should be and more ~ fun, entertaining & informative. He features the totally awesome, incredible restorations he has done and shares tips on how he did them (an amazing feat for one who does not have a shop & works out of his garage).
My grandkids would definately NOT mind if grama had THIS item in her home - a totally restored & working 1950's candy machine
And wouldn't mom's old turkey roaster be SO very proud to be sitting on this!
Their collections are gorgeous, for instance Hepcat's floor-to-ceiling collection of vintage paint-by-numbers - WOW!
And the Adorable Mz. Kitty's vintage ceramic fish wall plaques (this is only a sampling of the collection in the gorgeous bathroom!)
This talented young man with an "old soul" is a veritable walking book of knowledge on all things 50's & 60's ~ art, music, entertainment, architecture, and beautiful restoration. And he shares his "old soul" with us every day with his hard work in putting together THE most fun, informative blog I've ever seen on an entire era gone by. I am so proud to call him and Hepkitty "friends". And if you haven't yet visited Hepcat Restorations, you should take some time to step back in time and explore the very wonderful world he has created.
CONGRATULATIONS My Friend! And may your life be filled with TONS of jitterbugs & mooshy-cooshy dances!
(Now, I'm off to put the paint clothes back on to continue my race against time with Mother Nature for good weather and finish up all my own restoration projects! See you soon!)
