Recognizing Great Blogs With Under 200 Followers - Passing Along the Liebster Award

A few weeks ago I heard from follower Trina at Retro Fashion Is My Passion.  She said she had named the Uncle Atom blog as one of her winners of the Liebster Award given to favorite blogs with under 200 followers.  I'm honored!  (And embarrassed it's taken so long to follow up.  Sorry I've been so slow to pass this along, Trina.)  I've been thinking about five of my favorites to share this award with, and here they come... in no particular order.


Decades A Go Go - I've been following Nick's blog for a while, and oddly, I met him yesterday through a Craigslist transaction, but I didn't know who I was meeting until he left a blog comment for me today!  Ha! Anyway, Nick obviously has a passion for vintage things of all kinds, judging by the stack of things in his parents' garage.  He's the one who sold me the Admiral TV cabinet I blogged about yesterday.  Small world.

I HEART EVERYTHING  Amber is one of my favorite blogging buddies, and one of my earliest supporters (she left my very first comment here!).  I always enjoy her blog posts and the creativity she puts into her projects.  She's got an awesome vintage arcade in her garage!!! and she drives a vintage Dodge Dart
 station wagon - heck yeah!

No Pattern Required  Retro Ruth, Sable Mable, and Sara in AZ do a great job blogging about all kinds of mid-century topics, from vintage recipes to great mid-century homes for sale.  If you haven't been reading No Pattern Required, it's time you started!

i dream lo-tech He is very into vintage typewriters and he "type-casts" his blog entries.  You'll just have to go over there and see for yourself!

Retro Ranch Revamp I always enjoy Kate's posts about their ranch home and many mid-century finds and projects.  And Leo is always finding a way to get in the pictures...love it!

OK folks, now it's your turn to pass it along to five small blogs you like.
