Mary Tyler Moore Apartment




Hi Everyone,


You know what a big Mary fan I am, so I thought I would post a picture of her "tv apartment." I loved the stained glass window passthrough she had, so when we renovated The Daisy Inn, I tried to re-create my version. Here is the result. Mary's is first, mine is below.


Everyone have a great evening.
I am reposting over at Chari's at Happy To Design and Sunday Favorites.

I love Mary Tyler Moore!..one of my favorite memories was watching her show while waiting for Hubby-to-be to pick me up for our usual date! That was thirty-plus years ago, and it seems like yesterday. Mary was the ultimate single/successful/ perky/career woman...oh how I wanted to be her!!...think I still do!

I love this!! Can you push up your window and talk to Rhoda or Phyllis, Lou or Sue Ann on the other side?? That was such a funny show. I have most of the episodes on tape. Do you remember on "I Love Lucy" she had a pass through from the kitchen to the living room that was closed off by shutters. They used that prop for lots of laughs too. Homes from movies and TV have given me lots of inspiration for decorating. Great job Robin!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

What a cute post. I too loved Mary. They should replay those shows! I loved her window as well and Reba of the show Reba has a pretty one too, although hers is always up.

Your's is great too, what a nice thing to have so you can cover up your kitchen just in case you haven't had a chance to tidy up. Happy Sunday Robin!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Robin, You did a fabulous job! What a great idea. Now you have a functional space, a beautiful window and a reminder of a dearly loved person.
That lovely window will come in handy when you entertain and don't want your guests to see any kitchen antics!
AWWWWW Mary... who didn't love her!

Hello! I popped in because Sweet BJ at Sweet Nothings blog suggested it. I adore cottages and she said you had a dear one. How could I not come??? :-)

And your blog Header pic, took my breath away!!! -happy sigh-

Your blog will go into my Google Reader... the way I see new posts on blogs I love. And I look forward to taking the time to slowly ramble back in your posts. Oh what fun that will be, I'm sure!

Gentle hugs,
From someone who loves cottages, but will never live in one, do to lots of circumstances. But that doesn't stop me from loving to look at them! :-)

Hi!
I keep seeing your smiling face at all of the blogs I visit, and new I just had to come over here! I love to decorate and play tennis too. I haven't played for almost a year because of a foot injury but I hope to start playing this winter, indoors.

Love your stained glass window pass through!
