Mid Century modern cards

My friend Sarah sent me this fantastic link to a cute Etsy shop!  I just love these cards, how well do you know your mid century modern? There is a photo and name of designer on one side, an piece of furniture of their design and its name on the other. What a wonderful thing to buy with your Holiday gift money (I guess it’s too late for a gift idea). So, hop over and check these out! There might be a quiz later! 🙂

I’m hoping to work on sprucing up my main site here: https://www.midcenturystyle.net and doing some new and interesting things with that site as well as working on the Ning group – which you really must visit and join!

Madison is still dealing with PTSD and seeing a dead body and being mistrusted because the body can’t be found causes her to clash with her boyfriend’s brother-in-law and question herself.

Architectural Definitions for the Mid-Century Enthusiast

I don’t consider myself an expert, just an expert surfer and reader of other blogs. So this past weekend I spent some time putting together a couple of definitions pages. The first is Architectural Definitions for the Mid Century enthusiast. One thing I noticed was sadly lacking when we purchased a mid century home was information. Now there are some enthusiasts, but most are VERY enthusiastic and know everything about the world of architecture in
