We're getting serious about Mid Century Modern

Kids, I want you to write this down and read it every day:
I will invest in MidCentury Modern.

Seriously, you'll look back in 20 years and say, "I should have listened."  
It will give me absolutely no pleasure to say, "I told you so."

Memorize this chart before your next flea market junket:

Believe it or not, the two pieces below were found on Craig's List!

And thrift shops are teaming with castoff 50s and 60s
chairs at ridiculously low prices.

The simple, crisp (and often blunt) lines of MidCentury
pieces make them ideal candidates for rehab projects.

You're right, I've posted a few of these photos before but I just
can't get over how controlled yet versatile these pieces are.

A great source for a wide selection of MidCentury is Modern Finds:

MidCentury doesn't mean bare and stark:

Bordering on Industrial Chic, MidCentury exemplifies one of America's
greatest decades in social change, space travel, our introduction to color TV,
and the inception of rock and roll.  It's a win.

  19. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my
    4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear
    and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I
    had to tell someone!
