In my early days of homemaking, I had quite the obsession with vintage bloggy goodness. I would soak them up daily, get inspired for my day and got some great idea’s for writing posts (when I was writing more on mommy home life). But after my divorce, I forgot about the joy of these lovely blogs.
Perhaps I had forgotten since it seemed that my life was no longer in that homemaking purple-haze.
Or it could be that the many things that have been added to my to-do list since I’ve become a single mama pushed aside the vintage lovelies.
Or it could be that I was a tad bit bitter and wanted to stew there for a while.
Whatever the case may be, I was looking through Feedly, my reader of choice, and once again found the warm fuzzies that these charming lifestyle writers had given me.
And now I pass the fuzzies on to you. Because sharing is caring and I care about you. =)
I’ve been a HUGE fan of Alison and her books for many years. I did a guest post for her a few moons ago and it still gives me the giggles…it was sort of a blogging goal for me. What I absolutely love best about Alison is her style of writing. Something about it is so comforting, sweet and honest. She’s like that British friend that can say slap you with the truth, but you still want to hug her because she’s so gosh darn charming.
I covet this house. For reals. Aunt Ruthie, as she tenderly refers herself to, has the most delightful farmhouse that is perfectly decorated in country goodness. She also shares some simple country recipes and cute photos of her growing family. You can’t help but read her blog with a southern twang…her writing oozes it.
This gal and her fashion. Wowzers! Not only is she cute as a cream puff, but her wardrobe and knack for putting her spin on it is damn near brilliant. I’ve spent many o’ afternoons skimming through her pics. I’m sure you will too.
I like peeking at other people’s homes because I’m creepy like that. Kelly invites readers, creepy or not, to take a gander at her eclectically decorated her home and posts pics of other homes decorated in vintage simplicity too. Decorating your space all nostalgia-like can seem daunting, but Kelly makes it so easy…and not all trinket stuffed and moldy looking either! Simple, fresh and inspiring. Just what this work at home mama needs.
