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.

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.
