Mid-Century Modern League!

(Formerly known as AAAPDX)

Our local 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the education, preservation, and celebration of mid-century design and architecture has updated their name, logo, and url. We love it! The mid-century effort in Portland rocks!

Interesting Fact:
MCML is 1950 in roman numerals. How cool is that? Check out their site in our newly updated "links" section.

Dear members and friends,
We are pleased to announce that our non-profit corporation will now be known as the Mid-Century Modern League. You will find our new site at and see some great changes coming in the near future.

Thanks for your support!
The "MCML" Board of Directors

It's a great group of really nice folks from all walks of life: designers, shop keepers, mechanics, computer types (Mac and IBM!!!), real estate agents, tiki junkies, musicians, advertising people, accountants, engineers, trust-fund babies... blue collar, white collar, you name it! Just a bunch of people who dig Mid-Century modern stuff.
If you live in the Portland area, check out the website and come to a meeting! If you don't live near Portland, check out the website and move closer! :)

The Coolest Gift Ever!

We bought this house nearly a year ago. Wow! Time flies when you are working on projects. Yesterday our Realtors came over with an anniversary gift... a pen and ink illustration of the front of our house. It was so thoughtful and I really like how it shows the two peaks. Now, how to frame it and where to hang it?
