A trip home...

Gran's House...Originally red asbestos shingling, original ironwork on front porch.
So I took a few days last week to make the drive up to North Alabama to visit my family.  Monday of course was the City Hall East sale (more on that coming!), so I headed up on Tuesday and stayed for a few days.  I had a great time looking around my grandmother's house, which was built in the 50's.  Gran's house is a super cute ranch, with beautiful original light oak floors and a den on the back of the house with walls and ceiling of knotty pine paneling.  There are tons of details in her house that are great and much of it is still original (she did get rid of the red shag carpeting some time ago that lived in the den!).  Here are some pictures I took of some of my favorite details.
Classic 50's door!

Original stove hood.
Another great mid-century detail on the hood.
View from kitchen to dining...original cabinets and "tile" paneling.
Hood detail, push button!
Original laundry room off the carport with great built-ins.
Built in heaters throughout.
Knotty Pine and a wagon wheel chandelier in the den.
Great vintage Anderson aluminum screen door on laundry room.

Brief Getaway...

So I had a brief getaway for a couple of days last week in NYC.  I was there to do a little freelance design at the International Gift Show at Javits Center.  It was a whirlwind couple of days, but I really enjoyed it.  I only snapped a couple of pictures, but I did manage to see some nice George Nelson Bubble Lamps in the hallway of the hardware store I ran in to.  I also had the chance to stay at the fabulous Muse Hotel right off Times Square between Broadway and 6th Ave.
We put this together in 2 days!  Laurie of Bittersweet Designs lovely booth.

Liz Lemon has good taste...

Recently, Jeff and I saw this set of mid-century wood plaques on ebay that I liked.  We watched them and then of course forgot to bid.  I was bummed, luckily they were re-listed and we won them the next time.  I knew they looked familiar and then it hit me that I had seen the larger one behind the door in Liz Lemon's office on 30Rock.  Liz has all kinds of weird stuff in her office, including a giant wooden fork and spoon.  I like it.
