Well not exactly news actually, but news to me. My friend Karen is an archivist of sorts…she saves, she bundles, she files…then she purges by sending off the myriad clippings and files she has saved to the people she knows are interested. The other day this came in the mail… And she’s right…I love quonset […]
Category: Quonset Huts
Remember that TV show…”That Was The Week That Was?” So okay…the tile is back-ordered and the bathroom is going nowhere… so we moved on this week as best we could…starting with Constance Fowler (1907-1996), painter, print-maker, founder of the modern art department at Willamette University in 1938.

Saturday we had coffee with Doug and Em and Fin and Zach (our second Staccato Gelato coffee in 18 hours!) Then we headed for the […]
Quonsets and Airstreams
When you start looking for things you find them. In Seattle this weekend, in addition to seeing a ton of quilts (and a wonderful show of R.

Sunday and the revisiting of certain themes…
Memeo-matic, 30th & Killingsworth, and a new quonset, plus coffee. Home. (Please click on the image if they’re too small to even see one tiny detail.)
Remember Quonset Huts??
Ubiquitous in my childhood, the survivors are having interesting re-use:
