We are honoured to have been nominated by the vintage community on Instagram for the Vintage Pony Awards 2019 in the 'Best Blog' category. The Vintage Pony Awards are hosted by @wishvintage and @retromental, who quite evidently put heart and soul into their vintage efforts. Anyone who knows us here at Blackbirds and me will know that we are fairly anti social-media normally speaking (I have never had a Facebook account and don't post selfies) so we have been pleasantly surprised at how rewarding it has been to find our little niche on Instagram amidst lovers of retro, vintage and mid-century modern, and the appreciation and support shown.
The Blackbird has spoken blog, I like to think, covers not just what I post here on this website, but also the tips, inspiration and comments I share in my Instagram posts and on our stories: as a writer, I put a lot of care into the words I use, and my photographer, @isabellasynekherd_photography, always puts a lot of art into the photography: none-the-less so for being a 'mere Instagram' post. My aim is to inspire through our own modest interior here at Blackbirds, but also to raise a little smile or to reinforce feelings of nostalgia - something I believe to be important for the human psyche. It's nice to know that, as Blackbird has spoken, some of our words have been heard.
