Had the honor of being a sutler selling my floorcloths at George Washington’s Mount Vernon Market and Fair last weekend. My hand cut and painted floorcloths come in many sizes and colors, even custom requests. They make a unique gift for the upcoming holiday season! And all sales support pain management for my child battling crps and fibromyalgia. Several in this photo are now available on my #etsyshop, info in bio. Get one before it’s gone or get your order placed! #painting #interiordesign #interiordecor #colonial #18thcentury #artist #art #artistsoninstagram #artsy #mount_vernon #historical #history #etsy #etsyseller #etsysellersofinstagram #tablescapes #tabledecor

Mission Concepción, one of five Spanish missions in the area of San Antonio and the oldest unrestored stone church in America. It's a fine display of my favorite architecture type, Spanish Colonial.

Mission concepción, one of five spanish missions in the area of san antonio and the oldest unrestored stone church in america. it's a fine display of my favorite architecture type, spanish colonial. "the houses are low, with flat roofs as i have mentioned. the churches are differently constructed from the other buildings and make a beautiful show. they have a great number of large bells, which, when disturbed, make a noise, that would almost seem sufficient to wake the dead." -the personal narrative of james o. pattie of kentucky 1824-1830

“The Grand Tour was a vital rite of passage for the aristocracy. The emancipation of the nobles from obligatory state service in 1762 had unleashed Russia’a more ambitious and curious gentry on the world. The arrived in droves in Paris, Amsterdam and Vienna. But England was their favourite destination. It was the homeland of a prosperous and independent landed gentry, which the Russian nobles aspired to become.
.
Their Anglomania was sometimes so extreme that it bordered on the denial of their own identity. ‘Why was I not born an Englishwoman?’ lamented Princess Dashkova, a frequent visitor to and admirer of England, who had sung its praises in her celebrated Journey of a Russian Noblewoman (1775). Russians flocked to the sceptered isle to educate themselves in the latest fashions and designs of its fine houses, to acquire new techniques of estate management and landscape gardening, and to buy objets d’art, carriages and wigs and all the other necessary accoutrements of a civilized lifestyle.” - from “Natasha’s Dance” by Orlando Figes

After nearly two years, it is time to reassemble the large lacquer cabinet by Dubois, from Waddesdon Manor.  Last chance to see the two lead counterweights helping with the smooth opening of the drop front.  With nearly 20kg of lead counterweights, it takes no effort to open the drop front, even with a broken thumb ( thanks to working on one of the heaviest piece of furniture ever made!) #waddesdon #waddesdonmanor #nationaltrust #conservation #rothschild #interior #historicinterior @waddesdonmanor_nt #duboiscabinet #lacquer #lacquerconservation #japaneselacquer #europeanlacquer #japaning #vernismartin #giltbronze #ormoulu #voguemagazine @nationaltrust @waddesdonmanor_nt #frenchfurniture #18thcentury #secret #secretmechanism #lock
