Welcome to my vintage-loving housewife blog life!

I never thought that I would actually like blogging.  As someone who is a self-described computer illiterate, blogging seemed too technologically challenging to make it a very attractive prospect--initially.  However, over the last couple of weeks, I have realized that I really like it, not only because it offers a type of creative outlet for my writing and *design* skills, but also because it keeps me in touch with others who have similar interests as myself and lets me share my love for things which the people that I actually know have little or no interest in. So, about me...

Hooray for Housewives!
I am a Spanish teacher by education, but am currently not working.  I taught for three years and, after suffering from some stress-related health issues, realized that teaching was not for me--way too stressful!  Fortunately, I am in a position where my husband makes enough money that I don't have to work.  After I first resigned from my teaching position, my intention was to take some time off and eventually find another position that would be more accommodating, and less trying.  However, after spending the past few months at home, I have come to realize that I LOVE being a housewife!  Unfortunately, there is a sort-of-a stigma this day and age surrounding young, educated women who "don't work."  I guess part of my intention for this blog is to explore just why that is. 

I actually have two other blogs as well (one, a collection of my favorite recipes; the other, a "tribute" of sorts to Lucille Ball), so please check them out if you have an interest in either of those subjects! I decided to do separate blogs, because I know most of the people who would read my recipe blog would have no interest in Lucille Ball, or in anything vintage--or related to housewifery for that matter--and vice-versa.  You get the idea; so...I decided to create this blog because I LOVE vintage things and I LOVE being a housewife.  I know that "vintage" is rather a broad term, but when I say this I mean anything that is basically pre-1965.  I have always had a fascination with the 40s and 50s decades, and most of my favorite things actually come from that time period.  As a 26 year-old, I find myself very much alone when it comes to this love for "old" things, as well as my happiness as a housewife, and then....I found several other bloggers who are much like myself (although I haven't yet found anyone who is right at my age...) and am so thrilled to have found an outlet for my passion! 

So, welcome to my vintage-loving housewife blog life!


  1. I found your blog from a comment you left on 50's Times.

    I am quite a bit older than you and have been blogging for almost 5 years now (I can't believe it's been that long!) and have found, for the most part, a wonderful community of ladies.

    I am fascinated by the 1940's (WW2) and like the clothing from the 1950's.

    Welcome to blogging! (o:

  2. Thanks! I have often found that I tend to have much more in common with women who are quite a bit older than myself...I can't believe I haven't discovered blogging until now. =)
