Pictures of "Franks" bar and other insights into our home

My husband’s bar is named “Franks”….not oddly after Frank Sinatra (although there are pictures of him) but after Frank Zappa – I bought an expensive photo of him years ago and that’s what started the whole bar theme! So, here’s the new and improved “Franks”.

Some of the “Franks” around the bar – it’s fun to see what people bring over.

Oh, and here’s the rest of the room. Not really mid-century (we need different fabrics) but that’s our only Shag (a cheap print with Pink Panther – my son LOVES it!).

The plant in the corner hasn’t been hung and we need a mid-century rug – suggestions? Oh, and a funkier lamp – but it’s baby steps, right?

A couple good reads for Mid-Century fans

Was just surfing the midcentury lifestyle and found this nifty site: – LOVE the article on the offices (esp if you’re a Mad Men fan).
