It dawned on me recently that I haven’t done a “Friday Finds” for a while. So here are some blogs and such that have been capturing my attention recently:
- Redoing a 1950s Condo on No Pattern Required I used to watch This Old House religiously when Bob Vila was still the host. I loved the show because a lot of the work was being done by homeowners and I appreciated how Bob, Norm, and the others would teach the homeowners how to do something. I also watched Hometime while we lived on the East Coast. So, if you are like me and like to follow along as a real person renovates a house or condo, then you will love this series by Sara. Every Thursday, Sara provides us with an update on the progress she, her husband (Mike), and her mother are making on renovating her mother’s 1950s time capsule condo. This is “real life” renovation that isn’t done in a weekend. And I love how she proves some contractors wrong when they tell her something can’t be done and she goes ahead and does it anywhere.
- Faithful Vintage Living Regular readers (and Facebook fans) will recognize Brandi as a frequent commenter and MRW cheerleader. About a month or so ago, she started her own blog about trying to be a modern retro homemaker. I had the good fortune to coach Brandi and got to know her better. I love that her blog is so honest. What you read is the “real deal.” Be sure to follow her on Facebook, too!
- Homestead Happenings Kathie is another frequent commenter and MRW cheeleader. I’ve been reading her blog for quite some time and her posts always feel like catching up with a friend. She shares family history stories and what life was like on the family farm “back when” her grandparents lived on it. And, when I went to grab the link, I discovered a new post about Tupperware! I know I’ve mentioned her blog before but we have so many new readers that I wanted to give it another shout out.
Have you come across any blogs that you think I should know about?
