A new home for the family built in 1962 overlooking Petaluma in Sonoma County with all the features of, and little option to ignore, the modern architecture of the period. As we take the first step to understand what was Mid-Century living and how to peacefully live in concert with our little home we will share what we learn while embracing a re-use/re-purpose/re-cycle circular economy.

This weeks #thriftscorethursday has gotta include the sleek, elegant Nambe candy/fruit bowl pulled from the "steel" bin at the goodwill in Marin County. She was looking pretty sad when I found her but with a bit of polish and lots of hope she soon joined the Nambe candlestick and my favorite #katespade coffee cup.
Designed by Richard K. Thomas in 1951 the graceful swoop of the bowl embodies the #midcentury ethic with a fluid, asymmetrical flow. Both the bowl and the Nambe candlestick came home for $4.98 - thrift score !
