Doing a little housecleaning

So, I’m doing my duty and cleaning and organizing Mid Century Style – and if I don’t mind saying, it looks clean and shiny!
I have started SO many groups and affiliate programs (although there’s the Amazon drama) that I really felt that on the old website, they got lost.
I’ve also officially launched the Mid Century Motels page – you will see at least two more posts over the next couple days, with my reviews of mid-century motels we’ve stayed at. Those will now be listed under the menu item above.
If you haven’t visited them, I have two Flickr groups, one for Mid Century Motels and one for Mid Century interior enthusiasts (with an amazing 1,644 members).
Then, there’s the Ning Group – with a great community of folks who love mid-century and some resources!
Not to mention – the books (which are now available through the Tattered Cover instead of Amazon) which are here, along with a link to our Cafe press site, which is kind of understated, but I might launch some new stuff there soon.

Whew! And I’m still not done! Can you believe it?

It’s the ultimate case of sexual harassment.” Interesting new development. Gosh, I can’t wait until next season, can you? If you want, pop

So, without further ado – here’s our salute to Mad Men Lamps! The first lamp is on Don’s Desk at the beginning of the first season. About midway through that season it mysteriously disappears, but it was actually the easiest

Paperclip to house…and a nice 1920's one at that!

Apparently I’m a bit out of the “circle” on this one, but a bunch of our friends already knew about the guy with one red paperclip – this is a guy who started with a huge red paperclip with the intention of swapping it up until he got to a house. Well he’s done it! You can read about it on his blog, or the story at BBC Story – “Man turns Paper Clip into
