A Big Thank You...

...to Wendy Saha of MODPLEXI...for the gorgeous house numbers now adorning our wall.

Another couple of views...
yep, that's me in silhouette...think of it as "aht"...

We absolutely love this mid century modern flair that combines the pretty with the practical...no more delivery people driving up, leaning out and asking, "is this 391?"

And Wendy is great to work with...a real pro in all things plexiglass and a precise crafts(wo)man when it comes to your finished product.  She's careful about all the details to be sure you end up with an item you love.

Find Wendy and her MODPLEXI shop on Etsy and at MODPLEXI   You'll be glad you did.

Got out on the course with my hickories and walked 9 this morning...
...it was a balmy 43 degrees to start but warmed up nicely on this beautiful fall morning...

...and it was a tale of two rounds...holes 1 through 5 were pretty good...highlighted by making a 35 foot uphill putt for a bogey on #3, and a par on #5...but then I pretty much fell apart completely on 6 as if I'd never even seen a golf club before...recovered a bit on 7, and righted the ship on 8 and 9 finishing with 2 bogeys.

Then we were out and about running errands...along the way picked up this beautiful Howard Miller clock that now graces a stone wall near our dining room...
...the one that was there got moved to our master bathroom...
...where it's currently tick-tocking obediently for us.

As part of the day's activities we decided to embrace the local Dutch heritage - we do live in Holland after all - so we stopped by the Dutch Village that's about a half mile from our house.

Bought some delicious dutch treats and browsed the shops there...
This is a cool "tiny clock" that chimes the 4 quarters and the hour on the hour...didn't buy it but was tempted.  They have many German cuckoo clocks there as well, some for more than $1,000...gotta really love cuckoo clocks at that price.

Browsed various and sundry dutch knick knacks...

...and of course the requisite wooden shoes...had a pair when I was a kid living in Texas believe it or not...

...love the Dutch street names...

...and he statue of a fisherman enjoying a salted herring...yummmm...

Came across some cool art deco pics / signs, included here for no other reason than I like that style almost as much as I do mid century modern:




But now, let us all give heed to this eternal truth...
...and so I shall on this gorgeous fall day...

later, mcm fans...
