I love to read new blogs! As of this moment, I follow about 140 blogs (yes, I actually read them all regularly!) And every time I find a new one through stumbling around the web or by reading the blog of a new follower of mine, I get all excited.

I particularly admire those newbie bloggers who dive head-first into the blogosphere with great content, gorgeous pics and a big splash!
This blog award that I created goes out to 8 newbie fashion bloggers (who have started less than a year ago) who have began their blog with a bang. Thank you ladies, for being such an inspiration to all of us! If anyone knows of any newbie bloggers who began with a bang, pass my award on to them as well!

Ruby's Attic- This sweet little vintage gal just started her blog a few days ago and already has several posts and lots of pretty pictures! Now, that's dedication!

Annie and The Pancake Time Machine- Miss Annie is a new blogger and new vintage lover. She's a girl after my own heart- jumping right into vintage and never looking back. She's young and sweet but don't let that fool you, she's got all of the enthusiasm of a full time pin up girl

No More Sweatpants- Much like myself, this stay at home momma has vowed to ditch the pajamas and jump into everyday fashion statements. She has only been blogging her outfit posts since January but she has stood by her vows and has posted over 100 fabulous outfits and none of them involve sweatpants. Way to go, momma! Keep it goin'!!

Nifty Thrifty Retro Mama
-This vintage dame is everything she claims to be- Nifty, thrifty and she is indeed, a retro (and stay at home) mama. The Atomic Mama has been blogging for a short 3 months but has given all of us in the blogospehere plenty of nifty, thrifty tips on homemade cleansers, uses for everyday items and greatm money-saving shopping tips!

Circle 7-2099
Maggi had been blogging on her craft blog "Just add Glitter and Stir" but in December, she began her vintage blogging adventures with Circle 7-2099. With over 100 followers, TONS of vintage finds and info on the subject, Maggi sure has began with a bang!

Harlean's Heyday
- Riikka of Harlean's Heyday is a fellow curvy gal and vintage lover from Finland. With great style and fab film reviews, this gorgeous gal is on my top favorites list!

Little Ocean Annie- She cooks, she blogs, she sells on etsy and she's got style! How can you not love Little Ocean Annie?! This fashion blogger blossomed just in time for the new year and has peppered blog land with delicious recipes, pretty pictures and lots of fashion inspiration all packed into one little ocean.

Vivian Von Dimples
- This adorable Aussie stole my affections the second I laid eyes on those adorable pierced dimples and her fabulous vintage style. Miss Dimples is a costume student. Her crafty talents really shine on her blog and in her personal style. What a doll!
