Surprise! Announcing the Mid Century Style Ning Group!

Ok, this is the “Mid Century Style” surprise! Along with the fact that we are in redecorating/landscaping chaos this weekend, I’m going to launch the Mid Century Style Ning group! I suspect this will eventually be instead of the webring, but we’ll see!

I’m hoping Pam will hop on there and start a steel cabinet group and I would love people to start little subgroups for states (I’ll kick it off with Colorado). Other than that, the sky is the limit!

I got introduced to Ning from a friend who did a fiber art group on it. I now belong to several of those and the wonderful “posh mama” who’s fearless leader is going to be one of our first members!

So, welcome, email me if you have questions and lets get this started!

Oooo, and more pictures of the back yard to come…we have been killing ourselves doing work, so hopefully we can actually enjoy it soon! 🙂 (hubby has actually promised to post! I can’t wait!)

The Fabulous Satellite Hotel in Colorado Springs

Our last stop in Colorado Springs was our favorite – architecturally, accommodations AND price (can you get better than that?)
