August 23, 2010Mid-Century Modern Starburst Escutcheon
Happy Monday! I thought I would cheer everyone up on this most-dreaded day with a cheerful picture of a fun door escutcheon that I lust after to an insane degree.
Tom and I saw this home the other weekend while we were trying to find a garage sale. From the street, it just looks like a regular, awesome mid-century house with a peachy-pink door. But upon closer inspection…
Oh yes. A starburst escutcheon. I started pointed and squealing when I saw it. This picture was taken after Tom had me bundled back into the car so no one who he works with could see us. This neighborhood also had another great house with a boomarang escutcheon which I tried to take pictures of. For some reason, Tom was driving really fast and they didn’t turn out. Dang! Oh well, you guys will see it when I sneak into that neighborhood tomorrow night and steal it for our house.
Kidding, kidding! I would never steal. Stealing is bad. Remember that, Kids At Home, stealing=bad.
Now, if you will excuse me, I need dig my black shirt and vintage black headscarf out of the closet.
