August 13, 2009The 1950’s House from the Museum of American History
This set of photos from Alex is a great example of that. They are from her recent business trip to Washington D.C., when she stopped at the Museum of American History. Of course, the collection there includes this amazing period “house”, and Alex took pics so the rest of us could squeal over it. (And faint, if we are Sablemable!)
So get out the smelling salts, ’cause Alex took some great shots. And if you want to see the pictures in more detail, just click on them for a close-up.
I love that clock on the wall. The fabric for the throw pillows is fantastic. I have something very similar that I found recently in a pinch pleat drape. I am trying to rig something up in the craft room for them. Photos of that coming soon!
If you look down at the photo in the exhibit sign, I am pretty sure that is a pink living room set. Wow, I would love to see that one!
Fantastic kitchen! I adore the mint green stove. I have never seen one that color, and I just love it. I also love the metal partition next to the stove. Does anyone have something like that! Send me pics of it if you do! Alex, do you remember if it went all the way to the floor? Inquiring minds want to know!
What we all lust after in our heart of hearts. A boomerang counter top with stainless steel edging. Great picture!
A close-up shot of the kitchen counter. Hmmm…I wonder if I could visit the museum and sneak that stove out under my sweater. What do you guys think? Could I pull it off?
Thanks again, Alex!
