Two Honorable mentions! Congratulations!
Agnieszka:

"My name is Agnieszka Eshoo. Originally I am from Poland but I live in this country for last 15 years and 5 years ago I became US Citizen. I have spent my time here working at various Jobs but now I want and I am able to embark on career.

My interest in design runs the gamut from fashion to interior. My interior design interest actually began years ago with my interests in my Fathers studies as he pursued his Masters in Architecture. In wasn’t easy for him with a wife and children to support, but he was able to complete his studies and to get his degree. I realize, that it won’t be easy for me either, being the Head of the Household with two small children to support, but I am certain about what and I am sure that can achieve this.

I have chosen to pursue interior design because of my passion for art, antiques and design. I have found tremendous enjoyment in decorating my own house and homes of my friends, even given a limited budget. I have been told, that I have a “flair for this I aspire to become a professional and to enquire the knowledge necessarily to become truly excellent what I do."

this is my 50?




this is my 50?





365:50

I am in a slump since arriving home from vacation. Don't like any of my shots. Not that interested in any case. Sigh. I suppose slumps are to be expected. Push through, right?

This was to be titled "Some days three children can feel an awful lot like nine". There are 9 layers, but one layer turned out to be completely hidden and one is just barely peeking out. There was a tenth layer (and a different title), but it was clear from the get-go that that layer was not going to work.

I don't have the time to really work on the layers today. The children are already murmuring of neglect. This will have to do for #50.

Congrats to those of you who are hitting 50 along with me today!

[I'm tired of waiting to catch up so I'm breaking my own rule and adding three of my photos in a row to my 365 pools. Now I'm caught up!]

To protect your floors (especially vinyl tile floors & linoleum) from scratches & cuts, one good protector to use is this felt/pads. The photo shown has built-in nail and used specifically on wood furniture footing/surface. Easy to use, just hammer the pads to the surface and walah, your done. Some variety has self-adhesive, therefore you can stick ‘em to other materials such as metal, laminate, aluminum, glass, ceramic, etc. This is widely available in your favorite hardware stores like Ace Hardware, Handyman and other hardware stores on the block and goes about P10.00 a piece.

Today I spent a little while indulging in the beautiful home wares and furniture of “Les Jolies Choses” at Viables Craft Centre.
This is a wonderful shop specialising in French country style furniture and accessories for the home and garden. Small but perfectly formed, this shop is a gem full of delights that are sure to hold your attention for hours! After some deliberation this was my favourite image with the light filtering though the shutters onto these delightful tumblers.

I just gave up for the day. Tomorrow we're taking the pup to a charity walk in town.... then maybe doing some furniture shopping. Could be a productive day...if only we had the money to spend on furniture. *sigh*

Squire Boone Cabin: Boone, North Carolina (NC)




Squire Boone Cabin: Boone,  North Carolina (NC)





This cabin is located in the Daniel Boone Horticultural Gardens. The sign outside the cabin reads:

This genuine pioneer cabin, an antique hunting-type structure is named for Daniel Boone's father.

The cabin originally was located higher up in the mountains, near Avery County.

Around 1960, two mountain boys were hired to drag the cabin's log parts by horse through snake-infested underbrush to U.S. Highway 221. Then everything would be transported to this site by truck.

The cabin was authentically reconstructed and is typical of those used by early Blue Ridge settlers from the 1700s onward. It contains some early pioneer furniture hewn from solid wood.

The chimney was made from sticks patched with clay. Except for recent roof repairs and new door hardware, no nails or other metal fasteners were used in the original structure.











Day 156 - 3 Aug 08 - Looted




Day 156 - 3 Aug 08 - Looted





Today I did a security assessment into Abyei to see the condition of our compound after the fighting and looting. Everything was taken – our massive and brand new generator, every stick of furniture in the residences and offices, in the clinic, all the stores – everything. I guess when you have the town to yourself to loot at your pleasure you can do a good job.
I took photos of our compound so we can begin to consider what needs to be done for repair. This photo was obviously when I was taking a shot of a broken window – relatively some of the smaller damage but made for an interesting shot of the day.

The Taj Mahal

The Tajmahal was built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (reign, 1628-1658 A.D.), grandson of Akbar, the Great, in the memory of his queen Arjumand Bano Begum, entitled 'Mumtaz Mahal'. She was niece of empress Nur Jahan and grand-daughter of Mirza Ghias Beg "I'Timad-Ud-Daulah" vazir of emperor Jehangir. She was born in 1593 and was married to prince Khurram (Shah Jahan) in 1612. She died in 1631 on the birth of her 14th child, at Burhanpur, where she was temporarily buried. Six months later, her body was transferred to Agra and finally enshrined in the crypt of the main tomb. Shah Jahan who died in 1666 was also buried here. The Taj Mahal is the mausoleum of both Mumtaz Mahal and Shah Jahan. Originally styled as 'Rauza-I-Munavvara' and 'Rauza-I-Mumtaz Mahal', gradually it became famous as Tah Mahal and Taj-Bibi-Ka-Rauza (the garden-tomb of the Taj queen).

It is sited on the right bank of the river Jamuna at a point where it takes a sharp turn and flows eastward. This location has a correct orientation for the adjunct-mosque, minimum thrust of water and, above all, a large natural lake to provide it with a continuous protective cover of moisture. The river with 30 geet deep clean water was a constituent of its original design.

Its land was acquired in lieu of four Havelis. The construction began from the foundations. Wells were laid to support the huge building. Artisans were requisitioned from the whole of the empire and from central Asia and Iran, while bricks for internal skeleton were locally make, white marble for externals surfaces was obtained from Makrana. It was completed in 1648 in 17 years, at the cost of about rupees four crore (40 million) when gold was sold at rs. 15 per tola (11,66 grams).

In all, it covers an area of 60 bighas. As terrain gradually sloped from south to north, towards the river, it is laid out in descending terraces. At the southern point is the forecourt with the main gate in front and tombs of Akbarabadi Begum and Fatehpuribegum, two other queens of Shah Jahan, on its south-east and south-west corners. On the second terrace is a spacious charbagh garden divided into four quarters by the broad shallow canals, with wide walkways and cypress avenues on the sides. They are studded with fountains which were fed by overhead water tanks situated in the adjoining Bagh Khan-I-'Alam.

The main tomb is placed at the northern edge of this garden. It integrated the Taj with the blue sky, and provided it with a beautiful natural background, which was constantly changing from sunrise to midnight. The changing colours of the sky descended softly on its white marble and it looked ever new at avery moment. This newness is the secret of its beauty.

The main tomb was designed under the guidance of the emperor himself its perfect proportions were evolved in wooden models. It rises to 285 feet from the river level with 187 feet width. Its geometrical summetry is also unique.

Though it has some wonderful specimens of polychrome inlay art, in the interior: on the dados, on cenotaphs and on the marble Jhajjhari (jali-screen) around them, and on the exterior on the spandrels of the arches, this ornament is sparse and minimal, and it does not play any role in the total aesthetic effect of the building, which is wholly achritectonic.

It was efficiently maintained until it fell on bad days, in the 18th century A.D. [begin defaced section] Its doors, loose fittings and furniture of ebony and sandalwood, costly lamps, stands, utensils, rugs, carpets, curtains and wall hangings of rare textiles, jewelled coverings the entire paraphernalia was plundered successively by the Jats, Marathas and the British of the East India Company who captured Agra in 1803. [end defaced section] The British replaced the original gold Kalash finial in 1810 and, the Taj was once - during the regime of William Bentinck - put to auction only for the value of its marble. Fortunately this sacrilege was averted. The Taj survived, although in bare skeletal form without the imperial coverings. Since the archaeological survey of India was established in 1861, it is being properly maintained and conserved.

One of the most beautiful creations of man on earth, it is variously admired: as a 'materialised vision of loveliness', a 'dream in marble', a 'noble tribute to the grace of Indian womanhood' and a 'resplendent immortal tear drop on the cheek of time' it symbolises India's composite culture. It is reckoned among the wonders of the world and is inscribed as a world heritage site by the UNESCO.

1/12th scale, this is in beech, though I make it in other woods too, and has etched "glass" table top and unit doors. Hand-made steel ringdrop handles on the sideboard. This deceptively simple design is actually harder to do than it looks, as you have to mark it all out individually on the protective covering, cut carefully along the lines (making sure not to overcut - or you'll see the cuts when it's finished - then REMOVE all the surrounding areas leaving only the squares covered. Then spray, and only after several coats of spray have achieved the desired density, remove the squares to expose the transparent sections.

______________________
As a student at the University of Oregon studying interior architecture, I was fortunate to take a furniture design studio. The project for the Winter 2011 term was a bit different than most, we were to design a modular seating system for Lawrence Hall, the building the interior architecture program calls home. This project was about providing an interesting, new approach to group seating, bridging a gap between art and furniture design.

Starting with 4 groups and 4 different ideas, this idea was formed, to create a mountain/pyramid type seating system.

Most of us were new to woodworking and many of the shop tools. The angles proved to be quite difficult, but we certainly took it on in full force and created this prototype out of hickory plywood in 5 weeks.

Oozells Street Board School




Oozells Street Board School





Oozells Street Board School was a Victorian board school in Oozells Street, off Broad Street in Birmingham, England.

Designed in 1877 by local architects Martin & Chamberlain, responsible for over forty of the Birmingham board schools, it opened on 28 January 1878 to serve 807 primary children.

In 1976 the tower was demolished on safety grounds. Since 1993 it has become surrounded by the new buildings of Brindleyplace which replaced an earlier industrial area of factories and workshops. It was rebuilt around 1997 with a steel girder frame. Redevelopment was by Carillion at a cost of ?4,700,000.

The building became a college and then a furniture store for Birmingham City Council before being condemned for demolition. It had a last-minute reprieve as the contract for demolition was being agreed and reopened in 1998 as the Ikon Gallery.
----------------------------------------
The Ikon Gallery is an English gallery of contemporary art, located in Brindley place, Birmingham. It is housed in the Grade II listed, neo-Gothic former Oozells Street Board School, designed by John Henry Chamberlain in 1877. The gallery's current director is Jonathan Watkins.

Ikon was set up to encourage the public to engage in contemporary art. As a result of this, the gallery runs an off-site 'Education and Interpretation' scheme that educates audiences, promotes artists and their art. The gallery is open every day of the week except Mondays, though it opens on bank holiday Mondays.

Featured artworks include all forms of media including sound, sculpture and photography as well as paintings. Exhibitions rotate throughout the year so that as many pieces can be displayed as possible. Ikon is a registered charity which is partly funded by Birmingham City Council and Arts Council of England.











Scaffolded East Facade




Scaffolded East Facade





East facade under restoration; under all this scaffolding (erected in 2005 and due to stay for at least 10 years) is the famous east window, the largest medieval window ever built. It's precious and virtually complete original stained glass is currently stored awaiting conservation.

York Minster is England's largest medieval cathedral and almost impossible to do justice to. It has an awesome presence that cannot fail to impress.

Uniquely the cathedral was spared the ravages of the Civil War that decimated the mediecal art of most English cathedrals and churches, and thus posseses the largest collection of medieval glass in Britain throughout most of it's vast windows.

Sadly this fortune was not matched by the Minster's vulnerability to fire which has ravaged the building in 3 major outbreaks, the worst in 1829 when a madman set fire to the precious medieval furniture of the choir, destroying both it, the organ and the high vaulted ceiling of the eastern half of the church. Only 11 years after this tragedy a careless workman accidentally set fire to the nave roof, which also lost it's vault. Both roofs were rebuilt in replica, but a further fire caused by lightning strike in 1984 destroyed the south transept roof (rebuilt 4 years later).

Most medieval cathedrals were provided with stone vaulted ceilings precisly to avoid the problems suffered here, but York's builders found that building on such an unprecedentedly large scale brought limitations, thus all the Minster's high ceilings had to be built of wood in imitation of stone. An Achilles' Heel, but a beautiful one!

Roman Fort




Roman Fort





This was the place of Roman Fort, it was a wooden fortress and was called "Mamuciam" (sometimes spelt 'Mamucium' - meaning "a breast shaped hill")
because of the then distinctive shape of the outcrop.
It is said that name Manchester is derived from this word.
The site of this encampment is marked today by Camp Street (actually in Salford). Original fort covered some 5 acres and was then surrounded by woods where deer and wild boar were still to be found. Over the next 3 centuries, a stone fort was built further downstream at what was to become Castlefield (simply known by medieval times as the "castle in the field"), and the inevitable small encampment (or vicus - a place to live) grew around it - at its height it is estimated that some 2000 people lived within its walls, including soldier's wives and families together with craftsmen and traders. Many of these would have been Britons who eventually intermarried with Roman legionaries. This was the origin of Manchester, and the people became the Romano-British.
The later stone fort was built at the present day site, where the 1970 excavations and reconstruction is visible, and well worth a visit. In summer, two tour guides dressed as Roman legionaries, conduct guided tours around the fortress.
A Roman exhibition can also be seen in the nearby Castlefield Visitors' Centre. Many valuable archaeological finds exist, including fragments of Spanish pottery and a word square bearing the words "Pater Noster" (Latin = "Our Father" - the beginning of the Lord's Prayer) - these two are dated at between 170-175 AD, the oldest known Christian relics in Great Britain.
The reconstructed North Gate has been built on the excavated foundations of the original fort, using evidence from other Manchester excavations as a guide. It shows how the gate would have appeared around 200 AD This position is flanked by the two original defensive ditches which were built during the 3rd century AD. Above the arch in the gate is a guardroom, furnished with reproduction furniture in the style of the period. An inscription on the gate commemorates a detachment of troops from the provinces of Rhaetia and Noricum (modern Austria) and their centurion, Lucius Senecianus Martius.
At its height, the fort and the spreading civilian settlement around it probably amounted to about 2000 people. The fort was abandoned in 411 AD, marking the complete withdrawal of Roman troops from Britain, and the township (the vicus) probably fell gradually into disuse. Over time the purpose of the ruined fortress was lost in obscurity, and "the castle in the field" suffered as did most other ruins, as a useful place for locals to acquire (steal) ready dressed stones to repair their houses and barns.












Agnes Keith House




Agnes Keith House





This British colonial government quarters, called Newlands, was once occupied by famous American writer, Agnes Newton Keith, who penned Land Below The Wind in 1939. Two books followed her first success, namely Three Came Home (1946) and White Man Returns (1951). With the exception of the second book, Land Below the Wind and White Man Returns were written in the house on the hill where she had the best views of Sandakan Bay at the front and the Sulu Sea at the back.

Newlands was rebuilt some time in 1946/47 and was the first government permanent timber dwelling to be built after the Second World War. It was built upon the ruined foundations of the original house that was destroyed during the war.

The house became home to Agnes and her family, Henry (also referred to as Harry) George Keith, who was the Conservator of Forests and their son, George. When the Keiths left Sabah in 1952, the house was occupied by subsequent Conservators of Forests, forestry officers, volunteers and other staff. Though the Keiths never retuned to Sabah, the house was always referred to as Agnes Keith's House by visitors who never stopped coming to see it.

Today the house has been restored and turned into a heritage house, providing interesting insights to life during British North Borneo. It is furnished with a reproduction of colonial furniture and antiques. A gallery on the first floor tells the story of this remarkable woman, her books and her family. A Keith time-line starts in 1873 and ends in 2004 tracing the past to the present Keiths.

  • Queen Anne (also recorded as Ann) (ca. 1650 - ca. 1715) succeeded to the position of chief of the Pamunkey tribe in 1686 after her aunt Cockacoeske died. This was nearly a decade after Bacon's Rebellion.

  • She reigned from 1702-14. The style of red brick domestic architecture which was springing up in the 1870s in South Kensington and elsewhere was called “Queen Anne”.

"North Park" a Queen Anne Mansion - Essendon










“North Park” is a magnificent 42 room Queen Anne style mansion built on what is the most elevated section in the Borough of Essendon along Woodland Street. Still in remarkably original condition both inside and out, with its gardens well maintained, “North Park” is one of Melbourne’s grandest mansions and is representative of “Marvellous Melbourne”.

Built between 1888 and 1889 for Melbourne brewing magnate Alexander McCracken (1856 – 1915) and his family, the mansion was designed by architects Oakden, Addison and Kemp. The contract was let to builder D. Sinclair for ?10,750. The foundations of the house are of bluestone and above that, the walls are faced with picked red Northcote bricks, relieved by dressing and bands. The residence is an excellent example of Federation Queen Anne style, as seen by the asymmetry in its design, terracotta ridge cresting, prominent gables and half-timbering to gables, and the tall chimneys. The entrance is central and reached by a wide flight of Malmsbury steps. The roof treatment is elaborate, with dormer windows, a steep central pavilion, cresting, and a widow’s walk. The roof of “North Park” still has its original imported Marseilles terracotta roof tiles made by the French company, Guichard Carvin de Cie, St Andrew. Apparently these unique tiles feature the firm's signature bee imprint on each one. Alterations and extensions were undertaken in 1906, including the complete redecoration of the interior to the design of Billing, Son and Peck. One magnificent edition to the house as part of the 1906 extension was a ballroom. It has a high domed, metal Arts and Crafts ceiling, Art Nouveau stained glass windows and French doors leading out into the garden to the estate’s ornamental fish pond, which is still as it was in 1900 when it was created. The ballroom was built by Alexander McCracken for the debut into society of his favourite daughter.

The estate grounds retain much of its original form, with a sweeping drive from the front gates on Woodland Street and the front of the house overlooking three curved terraces which are symmetrical about a central axis with the main towered entrance. The planting is a fine example of the Gardenesque style developed by John Claudius Loudon (1783 – 1843) in the early Nineteenth Century to display plants for their individual beauty. The grounds contain many mature trees which were planted when “North Park” was first constructed including; a pair of Himalayan Cedars, cypress trees, palm trees (almost as tall as the house itself) and a huge Moreton Bay Fig. All are surrounded by beds full of perennials which border a number of terraced lawns.

Alexander McCracken died at “North Park” in 1915. The mansion was sold to Harvey Patterson (1848 -1931), an executive of the Broken Hill Proprietary Company, in the early 1920s. He and his wife lived there for a short while after his retirement. “North Park” was then purchased by the Society for Saint Columban in December 1923. It is them we have to thank for the house remaining in such excellent condition. Most of the rooms are still in-tact with original interior decoration and furniture.

When I visited and asked permission to photograph “North Park”, I was amazed by the completeness of the interior. It was almost like stepping back in time. The hallway still has its heavy Arts and Crafts wallpaper, tiled floor and original Victorian hall furniture. It is illuminated by a group of stained glass windows above the stairway is the glory of the house. Their theme is the golden age of ancient Greece. A smaller set of windows shows the golden age of ancient Ireland. I would dearly love to have photographed them, but that was not something the Father would have permitted.
