A blog about real estate and other musings.
We love houses. Good architecture and interiors have been known to provoke unexpected back flips. Vintage treasures as well as tasteful modern designs inspire us. We get excited about a complete remodel, but sometimes a weekend project hits the spot. One thing's for sure, we tend to become a little obsessed with things. This is a blog about those things.

When you’re out and about this weekend, pop into the Austin Museum of Art and check out the current exhibit American Letterpress: The Art of Hatch Show Print. The Smithsonian Institution has showcased 126 historical and contemporary posters and it’s the last weekend to go have a look.
Located in Nashville, Tennessee and one of the oldest working letterpress print shops in America, Hatch has been creating show posters and advertisements capturing the art and culture of the American South since 1873. The original antique wood type-face and imagery used to promote the likes of Johnny Cash and Hank Williams are still being used to turn out prints today.
