So I was playing around with images tonight and thinking of my growing love of the charater Joan Hollaway on MadMen and well; they two sort of merged.  I’ve sized it for desktops and you can download it here if you like.

Sometimes I’m bad at keeping up with all the constant new tools that Google keeps releasing.  Particularly Buzz…..not a huge fan of Buzz.  However Google’s new sub-menu search buttons are quite handy.

The Google Homepage

After performing a standard search, where you receive results of various places all over the web you can click on the left hand side menu of “More” and further drill down your results to something more useful to you.  In this case I was looking for new undiscovered blogs on one of my favorite topics – Vintage Clothing.  Yes, this does explain my penchant for 50’s wiggle dresses and my undying love for the show MadMen.

After doing a search for “vintage clothing” and clicked on “more” then “blogs” then specifically “homepages”.  Now I have a list of not just results, or people who have created a few entries about vintage clothing – but specifically those blogs that specialize in it.  This little trick is also going to come in handy when looking for new French baking blogs too I think.  You can never have enough new Macaron recipes you know.

Also nice surprise – the lovely folks at Cabaret Vintage are placing at the top of the blog list.  W00t.
