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.

When it Rains ... It Pours!
We have taken to eating casual meals on the stools at the kitchen counter and for those meals decided to lightened up the mood with #midcentury shakers that are fun!!!! My daughter Grace spied these at the local thrift ($.99 ea) and from somebodies relinquished collection she chose the #kissingsquirrels and the classic #mcm totems. Both sets have cork plugs and were made in Japan after the war continuing the S & P shaker tradition started by John Mason in 1858 that required another 50 yrs before becoming popular when the Morton salt company figured out a way to keep salt from clumping in the shaker.
