Blog Spotlight: Mark D. Sikes

My mom is on a roll with her¬†online discoveries. I’m such a proud daughter. This week she sent me the link to Mark D. Sikes‘ blog,¬†and I got completely sucked in. The blog oozes style and glam with a dose of chic and a splash of history. It’s awesome. Go look. (It’s not all white, but there is a lot of it floating around.)
