50’s Houseblogging makes the big time on BoingBoing

Well a huge thanks to Laurie (1951 Ranch Redo)for bringing our bathroom conversations to the attention of BoingBoing! Wow, I feel so famous! I have some more pictures, but they are black and white…are folks interested?
Oddly, there is also a guy on Housebloggers who is trying to get rid of authentic 1950’s plastic tile! If anyone is interested…his post is here!
I’m already getting totally cool emails with more bathroom pictures, I’ll try to post them or links to them soon!
If you are a 50’s houseblogger or are interested in 50’s design, I have started a webring (listed in my sidebar) – please join! We’re kind of a funny group and I’m liable to be a bit picky so we can get authentic 50’s folks!

I’m thinking about putting up a gallery of good vs bad mid century makeovers.

Life after stainless steel

Quite a few years ago (no, we’re not going into how long), I was an advertising sales representative and had an appliance store as a client. I remember him saying back then that stainless sold “occasionally” but just wasn’t taking off. Now it’s all you see. I was just taking a look at Ranch Redo’s kitchen remodel photos. We redid our kitchen 6 years ago. A complete remodel from avocado appliances and huge gold flowered

Mid-Century Motel: the Buckaroo Motel in Tucamcari NM

I LOVE it when I get feedback from my readers that means you not only GET it! You’re in it with me! I got a wonderful email from Jenny G – of “The Romantic Gringo” that they were making an automotive pilgrimage from Detroit to Carefree, AZ for the holidays, and stopped in Tucumcari for the night. The Buckaroo sounds like exactly our sort of place – not even a website available! Here’s her partial
