Craigslist.... so hard to ignore all the cool stuff...

I have to admit I love roaming through Craigslist looking at the Mid Century Modern stuff.  

Since I live in North Texas.... there is oodles of stuff from that time period for sale. It seems Dallas really came into its self in the late 1950's. There were many great Mid Century Modern homes built all over the place here.

So as I was recently roaming... I saw this door..... 


That door is incredible. I would have loved to have seen the home that it had been custom made for... and sadly I suspect that home is now rubble in the local land fill. The very best of Mid Century style homes, were built in far North Dallas. On really large lots. And many of them are being bulldoze down... so some flakely looking McMansion can be built on the land.

That door is beautiful! So sad to hear about these old, gorgeous homes being torn down now. :(
