The Apache Motel in Moab Utah

Another notch in our Mid-Century Motel belt is the Apache Motel in Moab, Utah (be careful, fabulous photos ahead!) Thanks to my friend Staci for this one!

The ONLY place we will ever stay for a shower/pool/sleep-in-a-real-bed break in the midst of summer camping/exploring adventures in the Canyonlands area is The Apache Motel in Moab, Utah. Here is a link –   Actually, they have a sign out on the main street/highway that looks like a big arrow that was shot into the ground!

The Apache is definitely not fancy or luxurious, but they have great rates and they are far away from the noisy main drag. We love their pool at the end if a hot day!

We used to always catch breakfast at a place in Moab called “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” that was Mid-century decor heaven, but they closed. I think she has a restaurant somewhere in Arizona still…

Sounds like a fabulous place to stay and Moab is always on our list of favorite vacation spots!

This week we tackle color – which if you’ve seen full color photos in the 50’s, they had a different interpretation of. I wonder how many interior decorators still follow the following rules? As usual you can leave a link to your Mid-Century Photo Friday in the comments.

Raising Retro Kids: Pedal Cars

Pedal car history goes back to the 1890’s when toy makers took their cue from real cars on the road. At the turn of the century, the cost meant  that these cars were playthings for only wealthy families especially with many families reeling from the financial devastation of The Great Depression. No pedal cars were produced in the mid-1940’s when all metal production was directed to the World War II effort. Pedal cars experienced a

Don't replace your windows – it's not green or saving green!

I went to a great presentation by our local utility company (rather a guy they hire) who talks about how to save money and help preserve the environment. Great talk! I might email him and see if I can link to his powerpoint on my blog (stay tuned for that). But one point that came up was how replacing your windows is NOT the best for the earth OR your house. Now, I don’t know
