Well, this round up contains a round up. It’s a great one from the National Trust for Historic Preservation (along with Blu Dot, one of still one of my favorite digital newsletters), and it rounds up a bunch of repurposed buildings from around the …what are the kids saying these days instead of “interwebs?” Love for Christopher Guest movies aside, I’m as sick of it as I am of “smitten” and “über.” It’s a shame, because I finally learned how to type that little dot thingee over über, though I still don’t know what it’s called…

Moving on, if you’re in San Francisco next month, be sure to check The Wizard. The Wizard of the Dome, that is, Bucky Fuller. My colleague over at Houzz, Vanessa Brunner, has more info for you.

I needed a little spring cleaning kick, as the pollen is NUTS here in Atlanta and my big cleaning impulse from New Year’s has weakened and waned.
