The End...

As you might have noticed, I have stopped posting on Pigtown*Design. After more than 12 years, and 2,156 posts, I felt like I was finished with the blog. When it became more of a chore than a joy, I decided that I would move on.
I am on Instagram, where I post images of all of the things that catch my attention, such as architecture, design, culture, travels and current events... all of the things that this blog was about! 
I am also on Etsy, where I sell my wares, including antiques, textiles, paper ephemera and, of course, tea towels! 
I am working on another big project, which you can follow. As past Chair of the Baltimore Architecture Foundation, we have revived an old committee, The Dead Architects Society. Baltimore had a huge growth spurt in the first two decades of the 20th century, and a group of us are researching some of the architects active during those years. 

My research is on the firm, Palmer and Lamdin, and the two men as individual architects. Their houses are quirky and unique with a European flair. They are responsible for the look of three inner suburbs of Baltimore, as well as houses in other neighbourhoods. I have set up a website to catalogue as many of their buildings as I can locate.

I want to thank you for all of your support over the years. You will never know how much I appreciated your readership, your comments, and your participation in the blog. It has been such a fun journey and I've gained more than I could ever have imagined when I started the blog after I returned from living in the UK. 
Thank you so very much!
