Blogs here, Blogs there, Blogs everywhere!

So, although my posting over here at Madison in June has been pretty slow lately, I have actually been writing blog posts, just in another venue. Let me introduce my new blog: Dining and Opining.

I've been wanting to focus more on food writing for some time now, and so creating this separate blog gives me the space to focus more exclusively on my food thoughts, activities, and general goings-on, and to share my writing more widely. I still plan to write in this space from time to time, but with a more personal feel and for a smaller audience--namely, all of you who I love!

Oh, and toward the end of not having too many different blogs all over the place, I've decided it's time to say goodbye to my mostly-defunct academic blog, You're the Historian, but I've imported all of the back posts into Madison in June, so that they're still accessible.

But please do check out the new blog, and let me know what you think!

Postcard Wall

One of the main goals of the last week or so in the Zeide-Horn household has been to de-clutter and refresh our home, to embrace our roles as "home-makers" and to make our space feel more like us.  Among the ways that we've tried to reach this goal is new wall hangings throughout the house.  The space above the piano in our living room has long been itching for something new to display, and so we came up with this idea of a postcard wall, where we could display postcards from friends, a few photographs, and other aesthetically-pleasing images from magazines and old calendars, in a grid-work fashion.

And so, this was born:

Some of you are already well-represented on this wall (cards from GR, JB, DJ, CH, and others!), but we'd like to have more of you in our home!  If you'd like to participate, we'd love it if you'd send us a postcard (or a roughly 4"x6" photograph, card, or other pretty two-dimensional item) so that we may add rows and columns and memories of you to our wall... (email us if you don't have our address and want it).

Looking forward to expanding our postcard wall!
