Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Birthday

Ok I admit it. Google's latest Doodle tipped me off :). Anyway just in case you missed it head on over to Wikipedia and read up on this great Modern Architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. I would rather point you there than do the old copy and paste of someone else's hard work.

Modern Illustrations by Tricia Rennea

If you like Modern Illustrations as much as I do you will love the work of Tricia Rennea. Her art is so clean, vibrant, nostalgic; I can go on and on :). So much thought goes into Tricia's illustrations and looking through her shop you could tell a story by the pieces you find. Below are some beautiful examples from her shop Trillustrations.

Now that you've settled into your new Mid Century Modern home it's time for a nice house warming party!

A few jet setting friends will have to travel to your new home so make sure to send the invitations early.

Dinner is done. I wonder who brought dessert?

Great music will make your party memorable! Maybe a little Smooth Jazz?

You were just happy to see old friends but their gifts were a nice surprise.

It's windy outside make sure your guest remember their hats!

The party was a hit but there's a bit of a mess to clean. Good thing you've got Dynamist!

Retro Space Flight Design

Hello again everyone! Caring for an ill family member took precedence over working on this blog so there has been a very long gap since my last post. Anyway it's time again for some Retro coolness from great Zazzle artist. This stamp by The Luminary Gallery recently won a Today's Best Award(TBA) and fits in here nicely. Rockets and UFOs take flight leaving a nice trail pattern behind on a Grey gradient background. Such a great way to get your Retro Sci-fi fix :).
