    What Are You Reading

    I'm currently reading "Her Royal Spyness" by Rhys Bowen. It's the first in a mystery series set in 1930s Scotland. As a Scot to loves the golden era and mysteries, it's the perfect trifecta for me.

    LizzieMaine on TV

    Just watched the segment for the first time. Very nice job, LizzieMaine. You're very natural on camera and did us all proud with your knowledge. Your outfit was also very flattering. I'm glad I was finally able to see this episode.

    40's House

    Very nice article about a very cool guy. I didn't even bother reading the comments section because I knew there would be some bozos that would annoy me. I really do commend the guy for ignoring naysayers and living life the way he wants to live it. That place is my dream house.

    Rare and Expensive Books

    What a great thread. My mom is a book dealer as well and the two of us are complete bibliophiles. I have some signed books (mentioned in another thread) but I don't have any rare books. I'd have to say the rarest books in my mom's collection are signed first edition/first printings of 'A' Is...

    Stepping back in time in Indiana!

    True. In the late 1800s (I think) they dug a man made canal that went through Indy because someone had the bright idea to use canals, rather than trains for transportation in Indiana. Unfortunately, the man made canal wasn't deep enough for boats and the idea died out pretty fast. Still, it...

    I'd be up for it. I love the Golden Era, but almost all my furniture is Victorian/Eastlake.

    Collections, relatives, & things you wish you knew

    When my grandparents moved from their Chicago apartment to a Northwest Indiana home in the country in 1974 there was quite a bit of stuff to move. Of the many things they acquired, a drawer full of fountain pens was one of them. While cleaning out the apartment, my dad through all the fountain...
