Main St. Modern is Heaven

Be still my MCM-loving heart.  I’ve long been eyeing this awesome place on Facebook…stalking their pictures and dreaming of where I would put all the pretties in my house.  They were closed to the public for most of the winter, but I showed up on their first Saturday of the season to scope out all of the deliciousness myself. Yes, I just described furniture as delicious.  To...

Mid Century Modern = Love

If you follow me on Facebook, then you aren’t at all surprised by my Mid Century Modern (MCM) fascination.  Last week, I posted this pic, bragging about the awesome find I scored on my usual Thursday morning pick. I couldn’t get the tags off and to the checkout counter fast enough!  Luckily, I had driven the truck that morning, so I was able to take them with me.  Unluckily, the men...

Mantel Masterpiece

It’s no secret I love to decorate!  The fact that our house is pretty small has never stopped me, either.  I love changing things out for the seasons and I don’t think I could live without a fireplace.  Not because we actually have fires in it (it doesn’t work) but because it is the centerpiece of my holiday decor.  I love the mantel and utilize every square inch of it all year...
