First Weekly Round-Up

I mentioned on twitter that I love when bloggers do weekly round-ups of interesting things they've seen out and about on internet-land and had been toying with the idea of starting my own up. I got a bit of encouragement so I thought I'd give it a go. The links won't all be vintage related but will hopefully still be interesting regardless - I'm also trying to figure out the best day to do this kind of post on but I've started with a Friday and I shall see how it goes. (I'm also trying to think of a nice snappy title - I was thinking of Friday (Links) on My Mind if I stay with Fridays. Shall have to ponder!)

Mermaidens shared her latest project with us: a really beautiful printable paperdoll that you can purchase from her new shop
♥ Hannah of Leopard and Lipstick alerted me to the BBC film The Girl, which is about Alfred Hitchcock and Tippi Hedren - I'm intrigued!
♥ The Vintage Baroness shared some great photos from a  Renée Perle inspired spread she found in an issue of Vogue Germany.
♥ Shona showed us what she did when she lost one of her favourite earrings - a pretty great way to lessen the heartache.
♥ garçonnière shares her affection for designer Elsa Schiaparelli full of great photos of Schiaparelli's work and links to other posts about her (I also suggest checking out her post on photobooths, too!)
♥ Get some tips on how to do your own clone photos at Diversions from the queen of clone shots.
♥ One of my Tumblr pals started up a blogspot blog so go check it out and read the about page if you want an idea of what you might expect.
♥ Solanah of Vixen Vintage shared some gorgeous '50s Montgomery Wards catalogue pages that almost make me wish we weren't going into Autumn/Winter here. Almost.
 Two gorgeous watercolours from Caitlin Shearer that appeal to the lover of 'redundant technology' in me.
♥ Jessica wrote up a thoughtful post on dressing for both comfort and style when living with a chronic illness.

  1. I love the idea of a weekly round up! I haven't done one on my own blog, but I should! It's such a great little time capsule of things you liked at certain times in your life!

    It's also really great when it points readers to amazing material, like the article on Chronically Vintage.

    I can't wait for the future round ups!

  2. Great roundup Andi!
    I really like the name 'Friday (Links) on My Mind' it's fun! :)

  3. Brilliant round up, thanks so much for including one of my posts, you're a doll ;) xxx

  4. Great idea, it alerts people to blogs or posts they haven't read already. Thanks for this I will go and explore those I haven't already seen!

  5. I'm looking forward to that Hitchcock programme but I hope they do it justice. I heard Tippi wasn't sure if Sienna showed how much she actually stood up for him.

    Continue to do weekly roundups :) they are always interesting, I am even considering doing one now.


  6. Love these roundups! Thank you so much for putting them together in this post! Talk about inspiring! I especially love the one showing how to make a lone earring into a ring! I also adore Solanah's Montgomery Wards Catalog pages from 1950! I want all of those dresses!

  7. Hi dearest Andi, thank you very, very much for including my article in your roundup. I'm positively touched! ♥

    I love that you're doing roundup link posts now, and that I now have another reason to adore Fridays.

    Oodles of hugs & cheerful weekend wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  8. Yay! I love round up posts :)

    Those watercolour paintings are so pretty, I think it's cute how she used the phone cords as frames!


I read and greatly appreciate each and every comment. Thank-you! x
