The ovens are very nice: Hold a good temperature and are easy to clean. The glass doors make it easy to monitor your meal's progress. This model is good because it has the better knobs - earlier versions of the Flair had chromed knobs, which got very hot when the oven was on. It's looks like this on...

Ah, the Flair. I have had one for several years. They are wonderful stoves. I would need more information to help you out, though: For instance, is it a Custom Imperial or a Custom Deluxe? The Imperial was the higher end of the two, but the big difference were the "heatminder" and "sp...

Maybe it's me (It usually is) but what kind of MCM house has a billiards room, let alone a ballroom? ;-)

I don't know of a site, but If you have access to scanner, why not go to a thrift shop and find a fun old album cover, and use that? That's what I've done for our Christmas cards the last couple of years, and it is always a big hit.

I disagree that rail is a "19th Century Technology". It's more a case of 19th century infrastructure, and 20th century thinking. It's quite possible to travel from coast to coast on Amtrak - the "Southwest Chief" leaves every afternoon from LA Union Station, and gets you to Chica...

I have the same chairs. All I know is that they were made by the Liberty Chair Company in Liberty, NC. Hope that helps.

I think there's a reason why she's a "freelance", and why it's important for her to live rent-free ;-)

I gotta wonder what she'll be teaching - UC Santa Cruz is a good school.

Our New Pad!

My partner and I purchased a 1955 bungalow on Seattle's Beacon Hill last year. We are the second owners, and the previous owners did very little to the house over the years. While it is probably typical of tract homes of the era, it's a fun house nonetheless, so I thought I'd share it with you guys....

For what it's worth - I have had three bullet planters for almost twenty years, and the plants in them have been there for almost that long. For drainage, I just put about 4" of gravel in the bottom, so that water collects down there, and (presumably) evaporates. Never had any trouble with them - an...

They also closed the Vic's in the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago. Ridiculous move, since that hotel has probably the worst restaurants of any Loop Hotel. Vics was a nice little island of sophistication. We lost our Seattle Trader Vics (at the Westin Hotel) about fifteen years ago when I was working ...

Gangso Tables

We picked up a dining room set last week. It has a heavy teak (?) table with a tile inlay, labeled "Gangso/Moebler Made in Denmark" It has two drop leaves, also with tile inlays. The seller claimed it was 60's Danish Modern, and it very well may be that, but I'm not so sure. Don't get me wrong - it'...
