Welcome to my blog!

I used to blog here mostly using local photos about my neighborhood or Washington DC or other places I visited. But I took a break from the blog for a few months and then found myself posting about crafts and sewing projects I have done or are doing. These involve fabric recycling or re-use and refashioning of clothes, or other frugalities. I've left up the previous blogs and may occasionally revert to those topics again. May your days be blessed with miracles, surprises and creativity too!

Ronald Reagan National Airport Terminal A Building

Who doesn't like the old airport building at Ronald Reagan national airport in DC?  It's now the Terminal A building that has airlines like Jet Blue, AirTran and Frontier. It's curved front and Art Deco feel, shining white paint with gold leaf decorations evoke another and perhaps less complex time in Washington, DC.Apparently it was designed in late 1930s and opened in 1941 according to the summary history I found of the airport that is nearest to me. I'm not sure when it was named after the 40th President, Ronald Reagan, but who remembers what it was called before that?
