Revisit the moss question and 50's art and architecture illustrations and photos.

I still haven’t gotten much input on my moss question (see the previous post), anyone have any idea?

I’m off today to help hang pieces in my first art show (see my other blog for info) and so was thinking about art. For those of you who are just into the 50’s house thing, you may enjoy the flickr world of 50’s illustrations. I’m not sure if these are all the available groups out there, but it should get you started:

We had a tour around our followers and followees on Pinterest yesterday and found some fabulous and wonderful approaches to decorating for the holidays in Retro Style.

Having my "Martini in the Morning"

I know you’re all big mid-century fans out there and that usually includes a love of Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and many more – so what are you doing sitting there, you really need to tune into Martini In the Morning – it’s an online radio station just for lounge lizards (a great background to any mid-century house or business?). I’m a geek and listen to music on the computer most
