Mid-Century Modern

SwittMC2-MC5MC3MC4Out of necessity, I have had to, to some degree, learn about Vintage, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Retro, Stuff & Junk etc. during hoarding cleanups. Some of it is quite beautiful and unique.

Drab Neighborhood vs. Synthetic Pizzazz

Today, we were driving along through a tired looking neighborhood exacerbated by the drabness of Winter. There was little color, little green even. There was a lot of dead foliage and tired looking houses.Then my eyes spotted an oasis of color, energy and effort to enliven their front yard. This homeowner had taken the time to provide great splashes of color in their front yard with all manner of plastic flowers and other adornments. Not a quiet mind here. I left the oasis of yard art and synthetics back out into the drab sameness. I am being facetious, in part, but the contrast, only shown in small part here was quite a contrast to the bleak yards and homes for blocks around.
