Delightful Rodeo

My daughter Mary Moore is at The Glasgow School of Art in Scotland and sent me this as an example of some of the work that goes on there. This is a piece done by  a student that graduated last year from there in illustration.

The bunny knobs were made by pressing clay into a wooden butter mold. and firing them in my kiln.
The shades on the light fixture are covered in red gingham and embellished with wooden buttons.

Visiting Hyde Park

Latin song lampshadehorse barn

                                FDR's home in Hyde Park, NY                                               FDR wore kilts and skirts until age 5

I visited FDR's home in Hyde Park, NY today. This was really his mother's home and is plain and uninteresting compared to the lavish home of his neighbor Frederick Vanderbilt just down the street.!The grounds are beautiful and the view of the Hudson River is beyond gorgeous. I loved their barn and the little kilt he wore that is displayed in the Presidential Library which is also on the grounds. Mrs. Sarah Roosevelt seemed to love lamp shades. The one above is made from old Latin handpainted (probably) sheepskin song sheets.

Paintings I would have bought

I was at an antique store in Hudson, NY today and saw both of these painting that I would have bought, but I decided to leave them there for someone else.

                                  next to the paper dress.                                                        A dress made from magazines.

Yesterday I was in Rhinebeck ,NY near Hyde Park the home of Franklin Roosevelt. It is the sweetest little village with the greatest stores. One of my favorites was Hammertown and another was Paper Trail whose window had the cutest Valentine paper dress.
