A Little Bit of Fall

Hi everyone!

I thought I'd share a few fall pics from my kitchen. Baby Bluebird is home for the weekend with her fiance. Since she can't be home for Thanksgiving in November, I'll be cooking up her holiday favorites tomorrow for dinner! 








Remember to join me here October 31st as I roll out my new blog look and your chance to enter a giveaway!

Thanks for stopping by,

Chipping Away


Hi everyone,

Just like this cute chippy outside my kitchen today, I'm busy chipping away getting ready for fall and the re-launch of my blog. Remember, October 31st is the day!


Such chubby cheeks!


The dog is not amused, especially when he is on the outside looking in!

Time for Change

Hi everyone!


Do you remember when Bobby Brady's voice began to change and the Brady Bunch sang, "When It's Time to Change?" Well, that's how it seems here at Bluebird 1959 these days.  My blog voice is changing. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜


I've been retooling my blog  behind the scenes all year and will be rolling out all of the exciting changes on October 31st! There will be lots of  color, vintage and well loved decor all served up in a welcoming, 'old school decor blog'  style. I think many of us miss the days when blogs were authentic, humble, kind and house shaming & snobbery was rare to non existent. Sigh...


My plan is to bring that back (at least in my blog) and who knows? Maybe it will spark a revival of bloggers who aren't pros, but love to decorate their homes and want to share that passion with others.

I hope you will stop by on October 31st to check it out and to enter for a chance to win a giveaway. I also hope you will continue to stop by afterward, sharing your comments and ideas with me and other readers. I am hoping to post three days a week:  Sundays & Fridays.

I'll be posting little updates and teasers during the next few weeks before the changes are rolled out in October 31st!

Thanks for stopping by,
Jane

The Door Prize

Hi everyone!

Mr. Bluebird and I headed out last month to my favorite flea market, Elkhorn, and found this wonderful old door. It was just $20 and only needed a little Furniture Restorer to bring out the gorgeous wood. We definitely got the door prize! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ


I originally had planned to hang it in a very hard to decorate space in our stairway.  After some discussion with Mr. Bluebird, we decided on a different location - but still in the stair area. It wasn't my original vision, but I think it was the best choice!



It is  a smaller size door, possibly from an old dumb waiter or an under the eaves closet.


It even has the old hardware attached! If you look closely, the knob has the Star of David on it.  Very intriguing! I wonder if it came from a synagogue?



I'm so behind in sharing all that has been happening here at the Bluebird house. I hope to get myself together and start posting more frequently. In the meantime, you can catch a glimpse of our gorgeous new carpeting on our steps.

Hope to be back soon!
