Sadly, I'm small potatoes

I guess every blogger runs the risk of announcing something huge only to have it smacked away. About 6 months ago it looked like I was a slam dunk for an interview with Amy Wells about “Mad Men”. Sigh. Well, I think I’ve officially been blown off.

It was all lined up – except a date and time of course, and then I was pushed over to a publicity agency (not sure if I’m feeling grumpy enough to name them). They offered me “art” and said that Amy was just way too busy. So, sadly, I suppose important publications like Vanity Fair are now getting my interview.

In a way it’s a double edged sword because I’m over the moon that the show is huge and hip and probably that alone will make my mid-century numbers rise. And I can always go off pour myself a vodka gimlet and watch an episode. Ooo, I’ll go do that now. AND read the fabulous article in Vanity Fair. I guess I’m just a lowly blogger after all!

Oh, and if any of you folks run into Amy Wells, tell her I have a list of questions for her.

Which brings me to what I’ve really been working on this week, the launch of a new website for a local quilt shop….Quilt Cabin.

Googie and neon sign preservation and museums

One of our favorite mid-century things are Googie signs. There are plenty of photos out there, but one thing is certain and it’s that they’re a dying breed and ripe for preservation efforts. In case you’re not familiar with the term, “Googie” architecture, approximately from 1950-1970, is a futuristic or ultramodern derivative of art moderne and International Style architecture, originating in California in the late 1940s. While using the materials and design vocabulary of other

#5 Terra Cotta windowsill detail and fire safety

It’s a bit hard to see, but we have cool curved walls into each of the windows and terra cotta window sills (I think they’re terra cotta). Unfortunately we also have plastic storm windows, bleck! However, they’re better than no storm windows at all! On the subject of windows, we’re taking off the bars on our lower back side of our house (pictures to come later). I got particularly freaked out by the fire safety

Over 500 pieces of BLECK!

My blog was hit by spammers last night. I had a few yesterday (like 80 or so) but this morning woke up and had over 500 pieces of spam – and GROSS disgusting spam. First, my apologies if you ran across any. Second….I’m going to have to look into upping security on this blog. So, if you have to jump through hoops to send me a comment…please do! I don’t care if I NEVER look
