My New Blog and My 5 Year Blog-iversary!

Love this charming small front porch with ferns and coleus

Last week marked five glorious years that I’ve been writing this blog – my blog-iversity!

5 year and 860 posts later, I’m thrilled to introduce you to a totally new look (but don’t worry, it’s still the same old me).


I’ll still be bringing you …

the best Eclectic Home Tours (163 and counting),

creative decorating ideas and my seasonal home tours,

free printables (my vintage corkscrews are still my all time favorites),

tips and tricks (from gardening to organizing and more),

simple recipes (I love to cook and want to share more),

my travels,

all wrapped up with a bit of sarcasm and tied with a big red bow.

Kelly Elko blog


So step right in, take a look around and enjoy.

Oh, and since my blog forget to buy me flowers, I’m not talking to it right now.


P.S. The amazing Cathy Tibbles of WordPress Barista is the brains behind my new look. I told her what I wanted and she helped me make it happen.

  1. Hi Kelly! Congrats on your blogerversity! That’s a lot of posts and a lot of dedication. I love your new sleek look and really enjoying the video tour of your home a couple posts back! You offer your readers so much!

  2. Congratulations Kelly!! How exciting for you and Happy Anniversary! I’ve always enjoyed Eclectically Vintage and I’m sure I’ll enjoy Kelly Elko even more! Change is always good and adventurous!
    I’m looking forward to all the new and wonderful things you have in store!!

  3. Kelly,
    I so enjoy your blog. It is beautiful. I am seriously studying your hydrangea information. I hope to get it right some day.
    I have a love for old (retro) things, also. Over the last few years I have had to go through my 101 year old grandmother’s things and more recently my 99 year old grandmother’s things when she passed to glory. I found my 81 year old father’s baby clothes.
    Your blog is a highlight of my days.
    Congratulations and God bless

    1. Thank you so much Teresa! I’m so sorry about your loss. It’s hard going through our loved ones things but I’m glad you found your dad’s baby clothes. I’m sure they brightened your day and hold a special place in your heart. Fingers crossed for your hydrangeas!

  4. Very exciting, love the new name. So sorry your blog was so insensitive and didn’t send you flowers or chocolates. Hopefully for the 10th year at least. Looking forward to all the beautiful decor served with a slice of sarcasm.
