You may know me from my personal/crafty blog, Just Add Glitter and Stir. Never fear, I will still be posting pictures of Toot and my crafty ventures there but I thought that splitting off my vintage entries into its own blog was a "post in the right direction". lol
I chose the name Circle 7-2099, which was one of the phone numbers used in "I Love Lucy" (the NY phone company would give them new numbers to use), most notably "The Million Dollar Idea" episode where Lucy and Ethel attempt to sell salad dressing. (Speaking of which, ever wonder why they just didn't raise the price? lol)

I have had a love for vintage for as long as I can remember, thanks to my mom who is very much into vintage and antiques. (Typically "antique" is applied to anything pre-1920s while anything from the 1920s thru the 1980s is considered "vintage" and I like to throw in the 1990s for good luck, lol). I will say that although my favorite things are from the 1950s, I spent the better part of my late high school career and early 20s dressing late 60s-early 70s (I was a big follower of the Grunge Movement, kinda like hippies but less love and more emo, lol). So I am definitely not decade specific: if I see something that appeals to me I could care less what era it is from and you will see a wide range of styles and time periods on this blog.
So exactly what can you expect from Circle 7-2099?-From my grand library of vintage magazines I will be sharing some scans for your personal use. :D
-Some pictures from my so far small but hopefully growing closet of vintage clothes (especially hats, I L-I-V-E for vintage hats!!!)
-My favorite online vintage goodness (I'm a certified Etsy and Artfire Stalker! lol) and some amazing finds from my favorite brick and mortar haunts.
-Although I'm keeping my crafts on my personal blog, if inspiration hits and I create something particularly "vintage" I'll be sure to share it here!
-Personal family pictures that date as far back as the 1900s.
-I'm a huge collector of biographies/autobiographies of celebrities from the "Golden Age of Hollywood" (you can find my library list of completed reads in the left hand sidebar) and hope to share my thoughts on them with you.
-I love music, musicals, TV shows and movies from all eras, hello! lol So we'll gab about those too.
In conclusion, a little bit of everything! LOL I'm excited to be creating a new home for something that I am so passionate about! I do so hope that you'll join me here and spend some time sharing everything vintage! Feel free to follow me here, on Twitter and grab my button for your blog.
Thank you for taking the time to visit and leave your delightful comments! See you soon! :D
