Atomic Ranch Magazine for Retro Tuesday

I wanted to do a really, really nice feature on a magazine I found over the weekend and by the way - Where have you been all my life, Atomic Ranch?

Seems it's been around since 2004 and I missed it until I was taking a break from painting my bathroom hell and went to Border's Books to get out of the house.  I didn't plan on going to Border's I just wanted to get out.

Now.  

The places you can go covered with paint without appearing like a total fruit loopean boob are limited.  I figured Home Depot and Border's Books.

And I wasn't sure about Border's but I wasn't going to Home Depot.  One. More. Time.

So Border's it was and there in the magazine racks I saw this...


And no kidding the Heaven's parted and I heard Angels singing ....  (And they were singing, Take that and HA! - And it was directed to all the designers on HGTV who go into houses and say - Oh.  No.  Just no.  That dreadful kitchen will have to be gutted to make room for stainless....  Except they were doing it in the kindest of ways because they were Angels.)

So I bought the magazine.  Like you thought I didn't?  And took it home and sat for like, a million, million hours memorizing every thing in it and said, Oh for sure - Retro Tuesday.

And then went back to painting and now, Where is it?   It's probably under toothpaste tubes and body lotion that are not in my being painted bathroom but strewn everywhere.

So.  I will do the actual magazine another Tuesday but please - Go find this magazine.  Go to the site.  Go to a bookstore.  But go

Oh stainless triggers OCD in me for sure! Fingerprints!

I agree with Maureen. My mom had a stainless steel fridge and it had to be wiped down all the time because of the fingerprints.

Atomic Ranch Magazine is fabulous!

Thanks for the link. I live in a mid-century modern house and own another that I keep as rental property. I love this era and this magazine seems to capture it quite well.
