Share Your Blog - Let's Make New Friends!



By the way, the above photo is NOT me, but jeepers! What a thing to wake up to on Christmas morning!!

In the spirit of Christmas, and thanks for the idea from Brittany, I thought I'd do a post on sharing our blogs in hopes many of you will find new friends!

Here's what you do:

Just make a post (your name is already linked to your blog, or add your blog addy if you like) and give a brief description of what your blog is about!

Does NOT have to be a vintage blog! I'm also an artist, entrepreneur, etc etc among many other things, so I love to read all sorts of blogs!



Tip:

When I started blogging, I "followed" about 200 blogs, but only got 15-20 followers back! I thought maybe I did something wrong? lol... YES! I had not gone in my profile, and added my blog link to my website address, so there was no back link to my blog from my little avatar icon! Be sure to do this so you don't "lose" followers like I did.


If someone follows your blog, it's awfully nice if you follow theirs back. I do this for everyone who has that backlink to their blog.

Check back for additional blogs to visit by reading the list of blog comments.

That's it!

Let's network and make new blog friends!


My blog description:

Bringing my childhood 1950's, post-war, baby-boomer, mid-century atomic ranch style house back to her former glory. I post antique, vintage, retro items, photos, links and topics daily (sometimes more!) for your viewing pleasure and mine. I am a professional artist and movie lover in addition to being the CEO and entrepreneur of my businesses, among many other things.

Now share yours!!

  2. Hi everyone! I'm an illustrator specializing in cartoons and characters. My blog, the old sketchbook, is usually my down and dirty rough sketches, nothing too cleaned up, though occasionally some more polished work does appear. I've always liked the spontanaeity of rough doodles so that's what you get. Check me out: http://ericscalessketchbook.blogspot.com/

  3. ah this is a nice idea. Sharing the blog love!

    My blog is quite new, I love vintage and my budget is very lemonade. My blog is about combining those two things, but because I am a chatter box I'm sure my blog will take all kinds of directions. I am a huge fan of photography and I love researching gorgeous pics for my blog. I follow some great blogs too so if you check me out then have a look at those too.

  4. I love that you're doing this too!! I'm already your blog friend but I always like to make new friends! My name is Brittany, my blog is vavoomvintage.blogspot.com
    My blog is a vintage fashion blog for ladies of all shapes and sizes. I focus on fashions from the 20's-early 60's (but the 1940's is my favorite!). I write fashion, beauty and a few craft tutorials, talk about vintage inspired music and movies and whatever other ramblings pop up. xoxo

  5. Hey there you!

  6. How fun! Thanks for the invite.
    My name is Jamie aka Mid Century Madam. My blog is Mid Century Mania but the blog address is midcenturymania.blogspot.com. I love all things 50's and 60's buy mostly Danish Modern furniture.
    I can't stay out of thrift stores so I'm constantly rotating things in my house. Nice to meet all of you.

  8. Hi! My name's Khala and my blog is at atinyvoiceofreason.blogspot.com

    A lot of my posts are about my apartment redecorating. But I also make clothes so I post photos of that and do other inspiration posts!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Nice idea! Address exchange blogs! My blog is (mostly) sewing, so my blog is called Sewingadicta, it has evolved over time, now I'm indulging my passion for vintage fashion and one of the details is to sew clothes from old movies for me but I can also be a cook, knitter, crochet, tatting, and anything that can go through my mind. I long ago that I love this blog and I enjoy it.

  10. Thanks for doing this!
    My blog, "The Kim Show" is basically about my adventures, observations, things I like and my life, living as a rockabilly music loving girl. I wear vintage clothes, love tiki decor, and have a busy social calendar. Feel free to stop by and follow and if you have a link to your blog in your profile, I will follow you back.

  11. Great idea! My name is Monique and my blog is originalmischief.blogspot.com. I'm originally from Australia and moved to the US approximately 6 weeks ago to marry a man I met on ebay! I tried to do item not as described but they wouldn't believe me. :( I blog about all sorts of things mainly my vintage inspired sewing, vintage finds, thrift store scores, etc. As I sold up my life in Australia, I am refurnishing lover boy's house from the 50's and 60's. Thankfully, he loves both. Cheers Monique xx

  12. I did this on Brittany's blog too, such a great way to find awesome new blogs to read!

    My blog:
    beechwood45789.blogspot.com
    -it's fairly new still :)

    It focuses on different vintage aspects of my life, like collections, thrifting trips, music, local events (Detroit/Windsor area), clothing, book reviews, architecture, etc. Also if you are a fan of Boston Terriers, I post photos of my Baxter every now and then

    ReplyDelete
  13. This is a wonderful idea. My blog is called MakemineMid-Century. I love Mid-Century design and architecture, preferably Scandinavian. Unfortunately my four children curtail my budget and I can really only indulge in ceramics.

    My blog just allows me to jobber-jabber away about Mid-Century loving and living in Australia.

  14. Hi, potential new friends! :D

    Constantly inspired by mid-century style and hoping to incorporate it into my new home (when I get one) - This is a blog of my ideas and inspiration.

  15. I Love it! What a great idea-I'm glad you decided to do this!

    My name is Kim, and my blog is called Bargain Hunting Treasure Seeker (blogspot). My blog is all about my adventures searching for treasures at garage sales, estate sales, flea markets, and antique shops-wherever that may take me. I have a serious addiction to Fiesta ware, and vintage kitchenware-and anything that is purple!

    Looking forward to meeting new blog friends!

  16. Hi all, I am a vintage seller based in Brisbane, Australia.

    My blog shows off my latest finds, has a few tutorials, really it's about whatever vintage inspiration hits me. You'll see all sorts of stuff from kitchenalia to furniture to hats and clothing and jewellery and fabric and hear about/see my B&M shop which I'm opening in Feb 2011.

    Miz 1950s Atomic Ranch House here was my first-ever follower and she continues to inspire me in so many ways.

  17. This is fantastic! My name is Sarah and my blog is here: http://tinyarms.blogspot.com/

    It has a bit of everything, stuff about my everyday life, new adventures since our move to Colorado and items about my Etsy shop and my Pyrex collecting adventures.

    Stop by soon!

  19. Hi! My name is Cornelia and I write my blog in swedish, but since I'm some kind of artist I also update with sketches, photos and sometimes(!) finished art.
    You can find me here: http://www.knacktspader.blogspot.com
    for now, but I'll be changing my blog url sometime before christmas. Therefore following might be a good idea, if you like what you see.

  20. Hi! I see you've joined my following as I have joined yours. I'm monogirl at Vintage Spinster and my blog is about all the vintage stuff I have lying around the house.
    Thanks for setting this up and stealing the idea from Brittany. It's great to be able to have a quick way to cast a wide networking net!

  21. Looks like there are some good blogs getting added to the list. I will check you all out when I can. Might need a good pot of tea and a desk picnic to get me through. I am very much a reader, not just a follower so I like to take time to have a look through the blogs I follow. Infact since starting my blog I've hardly watched any t.v, there is just too much interesting stuff going on in blog land! x

  22. Awww what a great idea. My name is Delia but i call myself Dee as do all my friends unless im being told off and than its "Delia-may" ;-) I only started my blog a few months ago, and its really about my starting off into the vintage retro way of life, the things i buy and collect, transforming my home into a mixture of 50's 60's furniture and also 70's fabrics. I have started sewing and making dresses from vintage fabric and patterns its all really about making a cup of tea and sitting down and joining me for a bit of a fun inspired ride...well thats the plan ;-) So come on and over and pay me a visit if you like the sound my blog is dee dee's vintage retro delights. O and thats another thing im still learning my way around the computer so im not sure how to put my link up. Hope you still find me. Take care everyone. Dee ;-)

  25. Excellent idea! I blog at Call of the Small, http://call-small.blogspot.com/. I collect, photograph, and write about modern miniature design. I have ten dollhouses, including a few midcentury houses; many of my furnishings are from the 1960s, and I also love more modern pieces that evoke the 60s era. I am currently renovating two of my modern houses, so I get to be creative in that regard as well!

  26. Miz 1950s Ranch, like you need MORE friends! This is a great idea, especially for bloggers just starting out (but also good for us long-timers, too). I'm just your average mid-century-lovin' hag who loves to share her goodies with the blogging world, as well as memories of my actual experiences growing up in 1950s southern California. I can be found at vintagechristine.blogspot.com AND I'm also doing a giveaway at this very moment. Come visit, y'all!!!

  27. What a great idea....

    Our blog is www.homesweetsplitlevel.com

    It manily focuses on DIY projects around our 1959 MCM split level home in Atlanta. But it also details all of the events and so forth happening in our neighborhood of Northcrest. In basic terms, it really serves as a time capsule for us to one day look back on and see all the crazy stuff we were up to. We have met some really great folks through it and would love to meet more...so stop by and check it out! Happy Holidays Everyone!

  30. Thanks for the great idea! My blog (http://www.vintagejoann.com/blog) is about vintage fashion with a dash of my pets and our ongoing restoration/renovation of our vintage house thrown in for good measure. You'll also find my vintage clothing and accessories store there as well.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Definitely a good idea you have here. My blog (uncleatom.com or atomicuncle.blogspot.com) is a place to appreciate all things mid century and atomic. I've been blogging for a year, averaging about one post a week, sometimes more. I've had a few how-to posts (repairing a lamp, making a vintage plywood Santa are a couple). I love lamps, furniture, accessories, and I'm a big fan of the popular culture of the 1950s - 1970s. Stop on over and say hi!

  32. Good idea!
    My name is Jim and I have been blogging for about six months.
    I love retro/vintage ANYTHING! I also 'blog' about everything else under the sun....from looking after my 94 year old father to going for walks with my husband and Sophie, our dog.
    I live along the eastern shore of Nova Scotia,Canada. I am 'sort of' retired now and look forward to lots of future adventures in this great province.

  33. This is great! So many new blog friends! My blog is about all thing baby boomer. I started out writing about issues and concerns and I quickly changed it to a memory museum. I bet you can realate to at least one of my posts. http://boomerbabyboomer.blogspot.com

  34. How neat! What a great opportunity to let some of your readers get their own words out there! My blog (www.shewasabird.blogspot.com) was up until recently solely a place for me to showcase whatever I was interested in at the time (30's socialites, gaudy 60's handbags, 60's tv stars). I'm more trying now put myself out there more with posts on vintage finds and my everyday wardrobe.

    I live in Nashville, TN and spend every free minute digging out vintage treasures from local thrift stores and estate sales. I just recently bought a gorgeous 1958 Magnificent Magnavox console record player...which works...for sixty dollars. It's become the jewel of my collection. Anyway, come check me out, you can read all about it! :)

  35. What a great idea! I can't wait to check out everyone's blogs! My blog is called "Ranch Dressing with Eartha Kitsch" and it's about the reviving of my 1956 ranch house, my love of all things vintage and kitsch as well as my interest in old, old Nashville and country music. Y'all come!

  37. I'm so glad I stumbled across your blog... THANK YOU GOOGLE!!! I've been searching out others who also love the 50's era. I've decided to take on a project of finding my inner 50's housewife. Not the stereotypical one, but the real one. Like my grandma. I think there's something special about that era... maybe it's just nostalgia, but I'm trying to find out. www.oneyellowcottage.blogspot.com

    I'm so excited to meet new friends, as I've really felt kinda alone in my craziness! ;)

  38. My name is not Canadian Blend, but that's what I use on my blog. My wife and her children have just moved to the US from Canada and are going through the immigration process. My blog is about the blending of our families and how we went about immigration. (My blogging has slowed recently as I don't want to 'jinx' the process by talking about it too much.)

  48. Awesome idea!

    My name is Darryll and my blog, "All About the 1970's", is... well... all about the 1970's. It's an extension/continuation of a book I recently authored that relives all the great, funny, unique and cool things about the '70s. I love to follow others with the same love for the decade, but I tend to bleed over into adjacent decades too, since they're all so fun to talk about.

    I'm at http://allaboutthe1970s.blogspot.com and will certainly follow back. Happy blogging, all!

  49. I'm Sue and my blog is Practice in Time: http://practiceintime.blogspot.com/ It's called that because I love vintage things and have also spent part of my career as a professional musician.

  52. Excellent idea, thanks! We'd like to welcome everyone who's interested in the 1940's & 1950's to join our blog. Rocket Originals is run by just 2 “Rocketeers” so far; we are Kaye and Martin and we live in Sheffield, UK. We’ve both had a love of all things vintage (from the 1940’s and 1950’s) for well over 30 years, going back to our teens. The aim of our business is to have good quality authentic footwear, clothing and accessories, providing excellent customer service and keeping customers happy! Rocket Originals first started up in 1988 (although for the first year or so the company name was Rockhouse Clothing Co) selling our own design screenprinted t.shirts, as well as repro and vintage footwear and clothing. This time round we’ve been trading online since 2006. We also have a stall trading at lots of events, and we go to loads of events when not working. We’ll keep you updated on what we’re up to and have planned throughout the year.

  53. W-O-O-F! Do I like this idea...well I certainly do. I'm Sophie, a Labradoodle at http://fromsophiesview.blogspot.com/ who is ready and raring to go. My Dad takes me here and there and snaps a shot of me...all the time. If you are into beaches, trails, swimming, hiking, and backyard shenanigans...then well...you are for me. Some people say my eyes are mesmerizing and stare at me all the time. Dad loves photo editing and keeps updating my header plenty. Listen, he can do what ever he wants as long as he feeds me. Wink Wink!

    This is a great idea!

  58. HI, I'm Lyndel from Melbourne, Australia. I'm very new to blogging, and my current blog is about our Inkwell and Writing Ink Collectables. [Only a Drop of Ink] My husband and I have collected all our married life (30 years), not just inkwells but all sorts of china and stoneware. I also love all things vintage / retro / and I love to attend Garage Sales/Yard Sales, Auctions, Trash 'n Treasure Markets and of course Thrift Stores (or as we call them, Op Shops).

    I hope in the new year to also start blogging about some of my great Op Shop finds.

    Merry Christmas and may 2011 bring out more hidden treasures for us all.

  62. Hi Everyone
    For my blog, "Supergraphic Strategies," I scan hundreds of photographs from 1970s Interior Design books. Then I organize those images into categories (supergraphics or conversation pits anyone?) and put 'em into a post for you perusal.

    My blog has little to nothing to do with my personal life - I strive to keep it informational. For advice on wall treatments, built-ins, color schemes, and division of space straight from the 60s and 70s, check it out:

  68. Hi! I am an Australian with a young family who loves op shopping, garage sales and the likes (seems I am not alone). My family/friends do not take a lot of interest in what I enjoy (even if they do try to look excited for me with a new find). I thought blogging would be a good way to show off my finds to people who appreciate them. As a child my dad would take us all to country auctions where we would spend a lot of the day playing while he was bidding on all kinds of treasure. Yes, my dear old dad would have understood me. I have been an eBayer for a few years now and the things I buy I either keep for myself or sell on. For some reason lately I have not been so big on selling on. Hmm.

  69. Hello! I'm Kally, a milliner and vintage enthusiast from the UK. I run a small business selling repro vintage-styled hats and accessories, I live in Manchester in the North-West of England.

    My interests are all things atomic and 1950s, keeping beautiful Betta Splendens (Siamese fighting fish), thrift shopping, dressmaking, cupcakes, kitsch and lowbrow art, and keeping up with the goings on of lots of wonderful bloggers.

    I'm vegan, have a grumpy fourteen year old terrier called Scamp, and my boyfriend is a rocket scientist. Nice to meet you all!

  71. Hi! Thanks for the opportunity to share! I am Liana and am somewhat new to blogging. I have 3 blogs appropriated for my 3 main (but separate)topics of interest. One that is devoted to sharing recipes and good, old-fashioned home cooking(www.lianasbestrecipes.blogspot.com); one that celebrates the life and carreer of the amazing Lucille Ball(www.forlucywithlove.blogspot.com); and one that basically celebrates being a 1950s-loving housewife(www.lianathehousewife.blogspot.com). I am excited to finally meet people who are interested in these same things as myself and am always looking to follow new blogs!

    Hooray for housewives! =)

  77. Love the blog!

    Graphic designer & fine artist living and working in Cleveland. My inspirations are modern painters such as Arshile Gorky, Salvador Dali, Charles Howard, Adolph Gotllieb.The DaDa artists, etc. but more importantly my influences and subject matter is the source material that drove these men. The cataclysm of two world wars and the splitting of the Atom. bringing originality and emotion to my work.

  79. What a great blog! Thanks for all your assistance to the blog newbies as some of us may be!

    Anyway, I have always had a fascination with the recent past and have collected any and all associated artifacts along the way. Recently I have decided to share/part with items while collecting more, thus creating a kind of rotating art collection, if you will.

    In any case, I feel the '50s housewife is a kindred spirit, and I celebrate her as often as possible, both with my Etsy shop and my blog...and Facebook, Twitter, etc. Stop by anytime!

  81. I love checking out your awesome finds! They never disappoint.

    I have shopped at antique stores with my mom since I was too young to remember. The hobby continued, and you may be hard-pressed to find modern items in my home because of it. After buying my first home in 2009, I started a blog about the different things we've done around the house and junking adventures in general. We recently started recording our first podcast, too! Anyone interested can check it out at www.tikitiger.com That's what we call our home-made "bar".

    I was a pre war baby and grew up going to school mostly in the fifties and collect 40's and 50's stuff. I bought some of my ''lost'' childhood toys on ebay plus some other things, like, plastic kitchen curtains and colorful cloth tablecloths. I love your site! ; )

    I'm a 17 year old living in london, i'll be posting mainly about vintage, antique shop findings, life dilemmas, random ramblings anything from the 20s to the 60s. but my main love is in the 40s/50s. i love following people back! :) i joined blogspot mainly to make friends with different people, especially people with the love for vintage since i unfortunately don't know that many people who enjoy past eras. mind you i've only got one post up, as my blog is 2 days old :)
