Top stories for January

Wow — January was the biggest month ever* on the blog — we had more than 300,000 readers come to the blog — 309,791 unique visitors, to be exact. What were they reading? A little of everything, but a lot of these favorite stories posted last month:

1958-Sears-kitchen-catalog We featured 32 pages of great style from this vintage 1958 Sears Kitchen Book. Ted-and-Stellas-Mid-Century-home Taking a tour of Ted and Stella’s dreamy ranch house was a visual delight.

*Best month ever on the blog — except when we were in the New York Times and when that bathroom video went viral on HuffPo — but even so, we’re getting close to those benchmarks. Thanks for the fantabulous month, everyone! Kate and I are workin’ our hearts out trying to keep the resources, the inspiration — and the community — thriving! xoxo

    Thanks for the “fantabulous” blog! You are obviously achieving (usually surpassing) your goals of providing the resources, inspiration, etc., that makes the bible of many retro junkies! Please use caution regarding “workin’ (y)our hearts out” though, as the passion and love you put into this is what keeps the mid-century mod/retro/vintage community thriving! Looking forward to another exciting year of my favorite blog!
