I found this on Officers Row in downtown Vancouver.
I thought this was an unusual way to
have a souvenir of a sight seeing trip.Then I used it on my scrapbook page as
a background along with pictures etc. This could be used anytime there is lettering or numbers that is raised or indented on metal or concrete. Many older structures will have a building date engraved somewhere on the property, and I've also seen stamps in streets and brick, so there are many ways it could be used:)
will appreciate:)There are actual horses and other pieces from
old carousels in the museum room, and then a whole workshop all staffed by volunteers who are drawing, carving, painting and glazing all the pieces for a new carousel that will be housed in Albany. They said at the rate they are moving it will be done in about 7 years!
Anyone who is interested can be trained to help with whatever part they are interested in. There were carvers working on blocks of wood, creating animals and other parts, and painters working in the paint workshop, so you can see all stages of the process! Absolutely fascinating to the artist in me!
I would highly recommend a visit there with children, artistic folk and anyone else who might be interested.
in Albany, Oregon, the historic town south of Salem.
It is called Antiques in the Streets
and involves vendors setting up their wares down one
of the most historic streets.
They also had an old car rally.
I had such a fun day that I will do several posts on
different aspects:) Not only are there wonderful old buildings and museums, there is also one of the largest and well displayed antique malls I've been to. There was a whole room of vintage clothing, purses and shoes. I tried on a dress from the 1940's that fit me like it was made for me, but alas it had a large faded spot on the skirt.
My life is one that involves a lot of creative trial and error with some happy successes. I love nature and God the Creator. My days are spent at home and I love the sweetness of a day lived well. This Blog is a by product of all of those elements and I really enjoy sharing my life with others in this way. Enjoy and be blessed!
