Our favorite magazine is based out of Portland, Oregon and they do a wonderful job of providing design inspiration, promoting mid-century inspired businesses and bringing together a community of mid-century modern enthusiasts.

We are very excited to announce that Mimomito and Atomic Ranch are teaming up to promote MCM Design. We’ll be hosting a giveaway of a generously donated one year subscription of Atomic Ranch Magazine. In order to qualify you will need to do the following:

1) Check out and tell us what book looks the most interesting to you.

2) Add Atomic Ranch on Facebook and let us know that you did so.

3) Add Mimomito on Facebook and let us know that you did so.

Please write all three in one comment and use your real name so we can verify that the winner,  in fact, added both pages. The winner will be selected at random.

 The contest will end on January 1st, 2011 so that you can bring in the new with style.  Good luck! And thanks again to Atomic Ranch.

Here is a list of where to find gorilla glue nearest you.

A clean towel or paper towel to clean surfaces.
