Prairie Expansion

No, I'm not pregnant. And no, I haven't decided to sell Little MCM and move into a McMansion. (the horror!)

This blog is almost one years old - awww, a little toddler blog. 2011 is going to be a year of change and growth for LMCMHP (now that's a mouthful). I'm in the process of redesigning my blog header with the lovely Jessica who owns Very Designs. And in between restorations and updates to the house and when it's too cold to sand down a door in our garage, I will be filling in with some new features:

Prairie Tours: A little sampling from my last post. Tours of mid century buildings spattered with the occasional interior tour of well-known MCM houses and buildings in the City (and beyond).

Prairie Shopping (working title): Interviews and tours of stores, trades and products tried and tested in the Prairie House.

MCM Nerd Out (working title): Geeky posts on the history of the MCM movement in the city. I have loads of info in my sweet little head and I think hubs is starting to get annoyed with nerdy MCM outbursts.

Even the occasional giveaway! Ooo la la.

Naturally we will be busy with restorations throughout 2011 as well. Our plans for next year include restoring El Pinko (once I find a sink - grrrr), restoring all interior doors, finishing the window restoration, changing out the front and back hallway floors, making a much needed mudroom at the back entryway plus many exterior projects such as a new fence, exterior paint and doors and some landscaping. And since our entire budget for 2011 will be spent on updating the house, prepare to see plenty of new posts for 2011.

I really have appreciated all of your comments and value every precious minute you spend reading my postings through this first year. Thank you to all of the readers & lovers of MCM.

Happy holidays!
