Every once in a while you find some great modern architecture in this city. If I ever have an historic modern house I want it to be this awesome.
I found this cast iron owl cookie mold that came with its original box and a recipe for cream cheese sugar cookies and I can’t wait to make them! I have also been working on my See n’ Store Pyrex canister collection since I have now collected most of the pieces to the dishes set. I also found this unique pitcher/container that matches the pattern with a cork lid. I’m still hunting for a few rare pieces but my collection is nearing completion!!
c. 1925 Service Station. One of the few remaining early service stations in Bloomington. I just love it!
Bloomington Limestone Company Building, c. 1940. One of the few remaining buildings in the city associated with Bloomington’s limestone businesses.
Beautiful c. 1940 English Cottage. It’s hard to tell with all the foliage but this one is amazing.
My sister got me these little casserole dishes for my birthday! And my mom got me this cabinet as an early Christmas present to put some of my dishes on display! I think maybe I will eventually paint it white so it matches but for now I like the turquoise. :)
Five little matching rainbow ranches all in a row. They are so cute I could pinch their cheeks!
Medora Covered Bridge, J.J. Daniels: Builder, 1875. Longest covered bridge in the world!!
Miller House, Columbus, IN, 1958, Modern Style. Eero Saarinen: Architect, Alexander Girard: Interior Designer, Daniel Urban Kiley: Landscape Architect.
So sometimes I survey things other than buildings. Last week I got to survey the quarries in the Hunter Valley Historic Landscape District. These are some of the early quarries of Bloomington’s Indiana Limestone businesses.
Octagon House, Cloverdale, IN, c. 1860.
