Mid century home owners in the DC, Maryland or Virginia area – help?

Is there a mid-century homeowner out East that can help out with this?

Thank you!

WordPress issues!

I have been unable to post for a month -sigh! I installed WordPress a month ago, and moved all my posts, but seem to have issues getting posts to show up with this template. Sigh. Amazing, I might be able to use my chosen template. I’m finding wordpress to be very unpredicatable.  Anyway, I’m here. I’m reworking Midcentury style as well.
