Design

Last night the kids and I drove out to see Mom's office building for the first time. I hadn't fully realized that The Meadows is a fabulous archive of mid-century modern design. Rocket booster light fixtures, bubbly carpet and wallpaper, chrome-accent furniture. By the time we left, I was craving geometric shapes.
We especially loved the fountains in the huge courtyard. Sadly, no camera accompanied us on the trip, but the kids had a fabulous exploration of design and function. No lights, no buttons, no cartoon characters. Just water flowing over stone. The kids were totally absorbed.
Speaking of design, we then had a delightful visit to Cousin Cat's little cottage gem.
