Mid-Century Holiday decorating ideas (and a few more blogs to visit)!

Today I’m mid-century crafty blog hopping, so you don’t have to!

Design within Reach posted this fantastic picture of Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1930s “Falling Water” — made out of gingerbread (and pez, LOVE the pez). It was designed and built (in 40+ hours) by the folks at GardenMelodies.blogspot.com – and I just popped over to their blog and you can buy the plans to build your own!

Fantastic – not sure if I could bring myself to eat it tho!
Danielle Thompson (who has a fabby blog of her own) designed them and if you pop over to the ornament party, see more great pictures of these ornaments and you can download the pattern yourself. Wow, eh?

It’s really clean, very cute and run by a very nice family (with kids if you can

Doors in a mosaic

Doors in a mosaic Originally uploaded by rexandsharkey. These are some of the doors I’ve skulked around the neighborhood and taken photos of. I think all of them are cool. Part of this is for the Crestview door quest! But I also am always looking for cooler security doors. Our front door (which is on a fairly major street and right next to a bust stop) probably requires one, but I think ours lacks style.

Updating on Houseblogs

So, have you heard about Houseblogs? If you blog about your house (or house related stuff) are you on there?
