The expansion of Mid-Century Style

We’ve finally gotten organized and launched Mid-Century Motels! It’s still in it’s infant stages, but look for posts over the next few weeks with more motels and more pictures! Please let me know if there are motels you’ve stayed at that should be highlighted. I’m going to be scouring the internet, but I’d love input on your favorite spots.

I also am proud to be the new  National Mid Century Design Examiner! I can’t wait to explore Mid-Century style and get input from all of you over in that forum!


My first article is a slight expansion on my Danish Modern definition you find here on the website.  I’d love suggestions on more ways we can educate “newbies” to the mid Century world – so please feel free to comment and let me know what I should write about!

I’m convincing him to share my love of blogging by actually posting here more, so we’ll see. We agreed to have our school board rep over to give his

Mid Century Food – Yummy!

If you have your head in a mid-century fog, you might have missed Mid-Century Menu a category/feature on “No Pattern Required”, where Ruth makes the long-suffering Tom try a myriad of fabulous (ahem, see the picture in the post? maybe not?) dishes!  The feature got so popular that Ruth has spun off a separate blog where she can abuse (oops, I meant “test”) more recipes on poor Tom. Here’s my most recent Mid-Century find! I

Mid Century Time Capsule in the Oklahoma Panhandle

Traveling over the holidays, we made a point to stop at the  Cimarron Heritage Center Museum & Information Center in Boise City, Oklahoma.Why you may ask? The primary draw at the time was that it houses the largest collection of dust bowl memorabilia in the United States. With photographs and even some of the amazing dust (really, you have to touch it, it’s fantastic). What we didn’t expect when we got there was the vast
