Big warm hugs and kisses to all the people who came out on May 6, 2012 to tour the 6 open homes in Ladue Estates. It was a blast!
We want to extend our thanks to all the homeowners who graciously opened their doors (did anyone get photos of the original Norman Rockwell paintings, by chance?), and to Clean Cut Creations for hooking us up with the owners of a vintage Chevy and Galaxie 500. So sweet.
We made all kinds of new members to ModernSTL (great taste on their part!), and were delighted to see so many of our current members and friends. It was a busy, gorgeous day, and you made all of so happy that you care so much for these historic homes.
And you can see more photos that others have shared from that day on our Facebook Timeline.
Were you at the May 7th Open House & Tour? If so, thank you so much for coming out on a perfect spring day and making it such a successful event. And you might be in the photo stream!
Thank you to all the Ladue Estates residents who graciously opened their homes and shared their enthusiasm for their mid-century modern paradise. More thanks to everyone who came out, and to three Modern STL members who volunteered to help us with such a large event.
