Award fun!

(award graphic by me, with bowtie patterns from Pugly Pixel)

The lovely Audrey of Fedoras and High Heels (one of my most diligent commenters!) presented me with the Liebster Blog Award. Thank you so much, Audrey! As the directions tell us, I have been tasked with bestowing this award on a new flock of bloggers. Here are my picks:

Born in the Wrong Decade by Niamhy – The little Irish lass with a fondness for unusual socks, parasols and brogues (among many other loves!) spotlights her love for vintage music and hosts regular feature I love called “Quote of the Day!” on her joyful blog. She never fails to lift my spirits with her wit and Joie de vivre.

The Stupendously Amazingly Cool World of Old TV by Millie and Emm – These two ladies single-handedly take on the job of watching every piece of classic TV footage they can get their hands on. While plying you with photos of gorgeous, under appreciated stars like Gardner McKay (newest web obsession, courtesy of Millie!) they carefully evaluate shows for all-important aspects. Among the important qualities they look for: awesome 60s spies, handsome men, geek glasses and fabulous clothes.

Bake Do and Mend by Gemma – Overflowing with historical facts and photos, Gemma’s Bake Do and Mend is a treasure trove for vintage lovers. Her recent post contrasting the US and UK during the depression years fascinates me, particularly the explanation about cocktails and US prohibition.

There you have it – three new blogs to occupy your afternoon! Please do check them out – you won’t regret it, I promise!

  1. I have to say your artistic update of the banner for this award is a 150% improvement! :D

  2. Heehee, Audrey – thank you very much! Feel free to use it in your post. :D

  3. We are so lucky here in the UK, on Sunday Doris was on national radio here being interviewed at length about her career and forthcoming album. She was absolutely delightful. I think you can hear some of the interview here:

  4. Hi Jenny!

    You sure are lucky over there! Sadly, the BBC blocks out those of us with a US IP address from listening to their programs. It’s one of the great sadnesses of my life! Thank you so much for posting the link, though. Hopefully some UK friends can hear Doris is her full glory. :)
