On the Road, Again....Mid Mod Style!

Jeff and I have just returned from a mini-vacation roadtrip to Oklahoma City.  Why were you in Oklahoma you ask?

For this George Nelson exhibit, of course!

It was spectacular and well worth taking the trip.  Of course, we made a map of antique and junk stores, stopped and browsed bought along the way, checked out Route 66 for mid-century Googie signs, saw Oral Robert's mid-century modern marvel of a university, chatted with shop owners, dined inside a Buckminster Fuller geodesic dome, and just enjoyed the open road.  We headed up to Tulsa to see the lovely mid-century modern neighborhood Lortondale, and might I add, it was a great place to call home.  Flat roofs and loving owners occupied most of the homes, and it was nice to compare and contrast Lortondale to Northcrest.  Here are a few teaser images to hold you over!






More coming soon!


p.s. Did you know what a mid-century hotbed Tulsa is?  Wow!  Mid-century around every turn!  We loved it!

  2. We really enjoyed it and wish we had more time there! We will definitely make it a priority to come back and spend more time. You all are doing a great job, and we loved Lortondale! The website is great too! We loved the similarities and differences between Lortondale and Northcrest, so interesting!
