This blog was born on September 6, 2010, and since that date, I have published almost 2000 posts and have had over 5 million pageviews...not bad for something that I created on a whim. It's time, though, to turn my attention to other things, so this will be my last post.

I want to thank all you longtime readers who have followed the opening and closing of our store, our building of the "modernist nest" and our subsequent moves to new homes, as well as the changes in our family.

For those of you who have only recently found the blog, I hope you will continue to use the archived posts for reference when you need to know about the works of specific designers, architects, and artists.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you want to chat about mid-century or modern design or if you have a specific question. I may not know the answer off the top of my head, but I'll try to help you find it.

Keep collecting the things you love!


  1. Sorry to see you leave Dana. I've enjoyed reading your blog. It will stay on my blog list since I do return at times to read your previous posts. Best wishes for the future.

  2. I've enjoyed reading each and every post. You are a wealth of knowledge Dana. Sorry you won't be posting any more but I understand. Life is busy. Thanks, Jamie

  3. Very sorry to hear this, Dana, but you've had an impressive run! I've learned a lot about MCM design from your blog and have always enjoyed reading your posts. Best wishes! Lee Ann

  4. Thank you so much for your time in creating and updating this blog. I enjoyed following your tastes in fine mid-century design. Best wishes to you and your family. Good luck to you in your future whims!

  5. Dear Dana, it was an honor for me to follow your blog the last three years. I understand your decision because my own last post is dated one year ago. Times changes and so we. Wish you all the best for you and your Family! I will definitely use your archive because I always learned a lot and every single post will be an inspiration in the future too.
    Hughes, Ria

  6. Adieu, Dana. Thanks for a wonderfully informative blog. It will remain a constant go-to. Enjoy your new found freedom from a keyboard. Hope to see you around town.
