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.

MidCentury Style on a budget
