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!

So, we’re not really going with much 50’s – more modern – but I’m going to do

Doing some 1950's redecorating…ok, with our "take on it"!

We recovered our footstool over last weekend. This is the before: This is the after: It looks like it was easy, but under that slipcover was a poofy footstool with a dust ruffle, so we had to totally take it apart. We removed the casters and put the new legs on. We got the fabric from an outlet. I think it looks a bit “80’s” but the fabric really matches the other things we have
