I found this site earlier today and found it to be a very interesting resource on Art Deco: Art Deco Style - The Ultimate Guide to Art Deco
The site covers the definition of Art Deco, fashion, art, jewelry, interior design and much more.

Yesterday, 11/24/10, my wife and I visited the new Texas Museum of Automotive History located in the historic Dallas Fair Park grounds. They have an amazing collection of classic cars and the staff were fantastic. They showed a true love of cars and treated us as welcomed guests. It was a fantastic experiance and if you ever come this way you need to visit this museum. The web site is http://www.tmah.org/…
