Two Worlds Collided

I can't believe that after multiple viewings of All About John Deere for Kids, volumes 1, 2, and 3, it took reading an article in House and Garden magazine today for me to learn that John Deere's world headquarters building in Moline, Illinois was designed by Eero Saarinen. Awesome.

OH my gosh!!!! Wow! A true master! Thanks for making that connection.

Thinking of mid-century mod. arch's. - did I tell you that I found Mom's looseleaf notebook filled with treasures from Richard Neutra's USC class for the new homebuilder? Mom & Dad took the semester class for $15.00 (!) in the late 40's.

Well, there you go.

In related news, did you know that Charles and Ray Eames invented the bicycle? True.
