New Year’s and we gave up!


We had a lovely Holiday and New Year’s….without a faucet in the kitchen. Sigh. That’s ok, we had good friends over and had a wonderful fondue! A 3 year New Year tradition…very fun!

I found someone to solder the break on the old sink. We put it in and as Rex tightened it down….PAFF! Broke! Again. So, we waited until the weekend after New Year’s and finally put in a new one:
champagne and faucets
We had an extra bottle of bubbly, and drank to having a new kitchen faucet. You never know you’ll miss it until it’s gone! May “Auld acquaintance be forgot!”

Happy New Year all!

I’ve read his blog for ages – and he has an awesome Flickr group for Retro Teen art and Retro Kid – both of which

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
