It is here!  Friday is finally here!  Does anyone else feel like it has been an abnormally long week?  I’m not sure what it was… maybe the full moon?  Anyway, I’m so happy the weekend is here, and it is a long weekend!  Time to celebrate!

And, speaking of celebrating – congratulations to MARY S. for winning the Pursuing Vintage giveaway!

Your pretty blue and white coaster set is on its way to you!  Thank you to everyone who entered, and to all of you who keep checking in with Pursuing Vintage.

In other news, I highly recommend that you check out my dear friend Shaun’s loft, which was featured on the site Apartment Therapy.  Shaun and Matt have such a fun mix of mid-century and extremely unexpected elements.  I guarantee you’ve never seen a place like it!  Here’s a sneak peek!  (Check out that amazing gallery wall!)

Have a terrific weekend!



A long while back I promised that when Pursuing Vintage on Facebook reached 100 “likes” I would give away some cute blue and white coasters.  Well, WE REACHED 100 LIKES!  Thank you!!!!

But, I have a problem.  Facebook doesn’t allow me to see all of you who “like” Pursuing Vintage.  I see some of you, and the total number, but I don’t have all of your names to be able to draw a winner (if you know how to fix this, please let me know!).   And I promised that I would include subscribers for those of you who don’t use Facebook.  So, please leave a comment on this post telling me that you’ve liked Pursuing Vintage on Facebook and/or subscribed via email.  If you have done both, that is worth two entries.  I’ll draw the winner on Friday (1/17) and get these shipped out.  You could be enjoying them in your home next week!

Thank you so much to everyone who reads and supports Pursuing Vintage!



Can you believe it’s been two months since Pursuing Vintage launched?  It has been fun and such a great learning experience for me!  I wanted to take a minute to sincerely thank everyone who has been reading and supporting Pursuing Vintage.  Thank you!!!!!  Pursuing Vintage would be nothing if you didn’t check in and see what’s going on here!

One of the ways I reach readers is through Facebook.  We’re getting very close to the big 1-0-0.  Sooo… I was thinking, once the Facebook page gets 100 “likes”, I will take all of the Pursuing Vintage Facebook followers, and all of the email subscribers, and draw a name.  If you subscribe and follow on Facebook you’ll have two entries.  One random & lucky person will win these pretty blue & white coasters.

Chances are, you’ve probably already “liked” Pursuing Vintage on Facebook.   So, how can you help Pursuing Vintage get to 100 Facebook followers?  Easy!  Share a post- any post that you really enjoyed or think your friends would find interesting, and let them know about Pursuing Vintage.

Don’t forget, you can also follow Pursuing Vintage on Pinterest.  And, you can subscribe to Pursuing Vintage and get posts directly in your email (the little subscribe box is over on the right!).

In the next month or so I’ll also be restructuring the Pursuing Vintage Shop to make it a little easier to browse.  And, hopefully I’ll be tweaking some of the technical things on the site.  Let’s just hope the YouTube video tutorials on “website tweaking” are up to date!  (TwEAking…I said twEAKing… not that other “word of the moment”!).  I’m thanking you in advance for your patience on that stuff.  I’m entirely self-taught on the technical end of things here, so it takes me a bit longer to fix and add features.  If you have any suggestions, or things you’d like to see on the site, let me know.

Thanks for reading, and have a great Wednesday!
