Eeee! I have an award!

The lovely Lady Cherry of Lady Cherry Loves has given me an 'I Love Your Blog' award.

I haven't put the button up because I'm not very good at that sort of techy thing, but I thought I'd mention some other blogs I really love. The fab thing about the internet is that blogs don't have to be lowest common denominator, they don't have to appeal to as wide a range of people as possible in order to make money, they can be specialised. There's a fantastic mix of professional and amateur blogs to be found, whatever your interests. Here are some of my favourites, although I'm not listing the ones with cats in as that would take all year…

Eclectic Ephemera Brilliant news stories with a vintage angle. Fashion and home blogs are great, but Bruce Partington-Plans' blog also gives a view of the wider world of vintage.
Diary of a Vintage Girl We all read it. There are many fab blogs that make me feel cosy, part of a friendly and warm vintage world, but Fleur's blog is not like that, hers is friendly but also very glamorous. If the others are fine vintage reds, Diary of a Vintage Girl is vintage champagne!
Art of Darkness Cobwebs' brilliant blog on spooky things to buy, make and see online. Halloween is my favourite holiday, and Cobwebs delivers it all year round.
Retrochick Great fashion posts, and it's also nice to see a really good vintage blog from the flatlands of Norfolk. (I grew up there. It's much cooler now!)
Miss Magpie's Musings I enjoy this for the fashion, especially the charity shopping.
Dressing Mrs Exeter I love Mrs Exeter's posts on dressmaking.
Landgirl1980 and Landgirl's Library Fabulous forties-nous and great books of interest to lovers of vintage and history.
The Steampunk Home Coolness for your cottage. I'm more into a deco-futuristic look, but really like the stuff that gets shown on this blog.
And, of course, Lady Cherry Loves: tea-drinking, vintage shopping, Friday-film-watching fun.
