Americana and President's Day


"Three Flags," Jasper Johns, Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY

Happy President's Day!  And, happy birthday, George Washington (of the cherry tree cutting fame).   I couldn't resist. 

In light of the holiday, here are a few examples of slightly unexpected Americana.... not the usual baseball, football, apple pies, and... well, you get the idea. 

Vintage locomotive weathervane

Red barn with its iconic flag...

Rustic done right!  Ok, that Hermes blanket is not American, but that room looks amazing.  International Americana or Melding Pot American Design?

Nothing says America like a 77,000 sq ft log cabin in Colorado with an asking price of 
$68 million.  Bigger is better... the American way??  Guess that this would classify as a log cabin "McMansion."
