Vacation Secrets: The Hidden Details at Disneyland

I like to notice details. The little bits that most people overlook captivate me. I admire fine woodwork, run my hands across delicate patterns, and squint up at architectural elements.

Last weekend, I found such a place in northern Vermont, a Mid Century Modern home straight out of the early 1960s. When we walked through the front door, the sense of stepping back in time washed over us. Shag carpets, orange and avocado … Read More →
