1950's Bloggers Home/Room Tours - Share Yours!



OK, I know this is asking a lot... To ask those of you who have rooms and homes to show off, to show them off!

Darlene, over at Vintage Notions and Whatnot, was kind enough to give us a tour of her amazing place. Check it out HERE, and go join her newish blog. Show our support!

She's real, outspoken, and tells it like it is. An excellent addition to our vintage and mid-century group of friends!


We've seen teasers from Atomic Living, zootsuitmama, Mick over at Everyone Goes to Micks, Mint Chocolate Ranch, Uncle Atom, I Heart Everything and I *think* I included everyone who has shown us some or all of their fab places. (All their blogs can be found in my blogroll).

Post the links or tours up here, OR on your own blogs if you wish. But PLEASE share what your home looks like so we can gain inspiration! Especially those of us who are a long way off from showing ours off!

IF I did not include a mention of your blog, don't be shy! Speak right up and say "Hey 1950's Atomic Ranch Lady! You forgot me!"

I really REALLY want to see what the rest of you are doing inside your homes!!

Thank you, thank you.

I used too many exclamation points today, didn't I? lol...

  1. NO! Of COURSE not! I LOVE exclamation points! Almost as much as I LOVE to CAPITALIZE everything for EMPHASIS! Can't WAIT to see everything! WOO HOO!!!!!

  2. Hmm, nice idea for a blog post, I may have to steal it some day! My blog wanders between old cars, my house, furnishings, bikes, lunchboxes and whatnots, but here's one quickie that I like because it's rightchere in my office. (Shh, I'm supposed to be working right now -- I'll call this a break if anyone asks, OK?)

    Is that enough shameless plugging for one comment?

  5. I love this idea..and exclaimation points!!!! I use them way too often also!!!! (hehe)
    yes, I want to do this too. I'm in the process of decorating my kitchen so it may be a little while, but I will! I just decided to do a steampunk bathroom! Hey, it's vintage....VERY VERY vintage! I got my aqua 1950's kitchen so I had to give my hubby the steampunk bathroom! :) I'll let you know when I have pics up!

  6. I'm just starting a series on our house on my other blog Random Neat Stuff, we are currently remodeling the kitchen but we are essentially done with the dining room, although it is a little messy right now. Here is a preview

  7. I will hopefully when we move but unfortunately it will never be exactly how I want it because the Army will move us and I either wont finish OR will decide to d neutral renovations because we will have to sell in a few years. :/

    Atomic Mama, check out the blog featured in my post. She has done something quite simple but very effective.

  10. Shooot.... I am downright honored to be the featured picture on your entry here, Miss Atomic! And wow! My followers shot up to 24 overnight! Crikey! Who knew? I owe you something, so... perhaps I shall get to work on that pencil drawing of your folks?

    Man! You are too cool for school, yah?

    Best always,
    D-

  11. Nah, just drop in once in a while and say "hello". But I would love to see some of your artwork. Post it up on your blog. =)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Some sneaky pics of my artwork are already up on me blog, just in case you were bored and wanted something fun to look at... :)

    I'm going to get cracking on your parent pic... :)

  13. Hmm I think I will update the Casablanca tour video, and post it on my blog next week! A lot has changed in a year ;) great post!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Can't wait to see all the changes in one tour, Mick!

  15. I'd love to post up pics of my place but it is so not how i want it to be, I do have some nice pieces of furniture, lamps etc but I'm too poor at the moment to do much work on the house :o(

    ReplyDelete
  16. Close ups of favorite furniture and such are welcome too. =)

    I don't think any of us expects "showroom quality", we LIVE in our homes!

    I'm most interested in REAL living homes, not "Better Mid-Century Homes and Bloggers" lol... We can look to slick magazines for that.
