Vintage Midriff Baring Halter Trimmed in White Eyelet Ruffles

Standard

I love this top that I just listed on Etsy. Makes me think of Mary Ann from Gilligan’s Island. Vintage midriff baring top with white eyelet ruffles. So 1960’s beach party. **SOLD**

Mid Century Modern Wow

Standard

My daughter goes to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park New York. After their first year of school, they’re required to spend 5 months externing at a business where they can practice their craft. Since she’s taking Baking and Pastry, she’s working at a bakery – Wild Flour, in Rocky River, Ohio. We’ve been there over 2 weekends – first to meet the owner and then to move her in.

This city is amazing. Wonderful neighborhoods full of gorgeous homes from Tudor cottages to elegant Victorians. The urban architecture is so fun to look at – loads of mid century modern buildings with strong lines, zig zag roof structures – you name it, this city has it.

There is a building at 20800 Center Ridge Rd, the Suburban West Building. The first time we drove past, I noticed the concrete slabs and deep teal panels over the windows. Just beautiful and a simple, clean design. If I needed an office, and I lived in Rocky River, it would be in this building.

Love the simple lettering over the entrance

Only after a couple of days of driving by it did I notice the artwork on the front of the building – a gorgeous atomic mini mural.

We think this looks like stacked MCM monsters

The pictures were taken with a camera phone. Next visit with my daughter, I plan on taking my camera and documenting some of the delicious architecture that Rocky River & surrounding areas have to offer. I also plan on going into this building to see if I can find any info on the designer or mural artist. I love both.
