I posted this a long time ago, but I think it got lost….like it has in these bushes. I love this light and the numbers that go with it. I also totally adore the trim color on this house (actually it’s a duplex in our neighborhood). Not SURE it’s vintage 50’s (anyone care to weigh in on this?) but the house certainly seems to have kept it’s 50’s charm.

I’m having trouble with my feed. The weird thing is my other blog has no problems at all – no idea what my issue is but I never seem to show up in the Houseblogs front page. Hmmm, well, I guess I have 30 days to work it out, eh?

It is a stop for travelers on the road to somewhere, and it is one of the most overlooked destinations on legendary Route 66. It is a treasure trove of history and

Well I have a couple of interesting posts coming soon, but I wanted to take a minute and point out my Google Reader Blogroll down the side (right side scroll down a bit).
