We took a road trip to Mason City, IA to stay @ the Historic Park Inn Hotel. The last remaining Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built hotel in the world. We stayed for two nights in the middle of the week in the Historic Suite. From the hotel website: "The Historic Suite was originally two guest rooms that shared a bathroom in between. It was sold as two separate rooms and considered quite an upgrade back in 1910. It has been restored to its original state, complete with wall mounted sinks, an original clawfoot tub and a full size brass bed. We have combined it to be rented as a two room suite with a private bath". What was interesting was that the manager called us about a week before our visit concerned that we had booked this suite but felt it would not be enough space for our family of four. We were offered the Premier Suite as a free upgrade. The only problem we told them was we wanted the two rooms so the children could go to bed early & the adults could stay up longer. The Premier was only one large room. They understood & we kept our reservations as is. very thoughtful. The children enjoyed the stay but were let down by the lack of a pool. Then during our tour of the building, we were told there was a "ballroom" & that we could tour that as well. The children’s eyes lit up @ that offer. Then when we got to the large open room, they looked around for the "ball pit" & were quite disappointed. All was made right when the end of our trip included a stay @ the Blue Harbor Water-park resort in Sheboygan, Wi which did have a pool. But still, no ball pit.

Another addition to the linen closet

I found these white speckled blue enamelware canisters on eBay and although they were designed to be used as kitchen canisters I will be adapting them for use in my bathroom linen closet. I’m really excited because they are exactly what I wanted. (Well, let me clarify that: I would have loved to have scored some vintage French enamelware kitchen canisters in that beautiful French blue you see so often, but they were waaay out of my price league! These cost me about a tenth of what one of those European sets might have.)

These are marked BRISTOL WARE U.S.A. on the bases and they have wooden knobs which I will be changing out for vintage crystal clear faceted drawer pulls that will dress them up a little.

Even though the canister in the right front looks dented, it’s not; just a trick of the light, I guess. (This is not my photo. It was taken for the auction listing by eBay seller "Gretacarbo.")

I’ll shoot another photo of them once I’ve given them a good cleaning and have added the crystal knobs.
