I think we’ve all felt like this from time to time! And since it hovers over the electronic device repair shop I have to think of all the times I’ve wanted to take a device and just obliterate it. Do you know what I mean?

The Capitol of Art Deco

I have always favored Craftsman style homes with Queen Anne slightly behind.  This came after I got over the “antebellum” stage of life.  But now my love of all things historic has also expanded.  I have decided that my current love is…..Art Deco.

Back in January while visiting my sister in Houston we drove through a very Art Deco neighborhood.  There was a Starbucks in the AD style as well as a specialty grocery store that had taken over an AD theater.  Other buildings had my mind whirling, but I had to forcefully stop myself from exclaiming over them or the other occupants of the car would probably have kicked me out.  I will return by myself to enjoy these treasures!

Weekend before last I took Bentley to Fort Worth for a dog show.  It was a big show with back-to-back specialties on Friday.  Let’s just say that his ring performance wasn’t stunning, but I enjoyed myself.  But what really topped off the trip was the discovery that Fort Worth is the capitol of Art Deco!  Little did I know!

I had not been to Fort Worth in 30 years.  I realized very quickly that it is the exact opposite of Dallas.  Fort Worth is laid back, easy going, and it seems to say “hey ya’ll”  in a slow relaxed drawl.

 I saw so many buildings that called to me, so Fort Worth hold on.  I’ll be back for more!
