I'm just a girl from Southern California. I grew up admiring mid-century ranchers, Spanish-style haciendas, and craftsman bungalows. All beautiful and architecturally significant, yes. But, the oldest building in our area was from the 1930s... So now, having moved to historic Pennsylvania, I sort of feel like a wide-eyed kid (and don't even get me started on the winters).
So, Philadelphia really was the center of the Revolutionary movement, right? We all sort of know this. Symbols of the Federalist Era include eagles and snakes, dentil moulding and pediments... custom built-ins, brass fittings and hardware. I like it all. So, I must be adjusting well.
Vintage iron eagle available in the shop... it's 23" wide and totally awesome in person.
