This weekend am going to check out this shop in Aurora, Oregon which is the district of antiques. Also just 10 minutes from Woodburn Outlet Mall. Featured in the magazine Where Women Create. This shop looks fabulous!! xoxo
I found this scrap book in my travels! I Love it!! If you have not yet gone to the Oregon caves you
need to put this on your list of places to visit. My husband I, and our best friends stayed there for
a weekend. We had a great time, and I especially loved the fact that there are no phones or TV!
The Chateau experience has changed little over the past 70 years. Occasional coats of paint have been removed, and the beauty of the original hand-finished woodwork shines again.
There are no phones or TVs in the rooms. But guests can take a stool at the wooden counter in the ’30s-style coffee shop, chat with other visitors, and enjoy an old-fashioned soda-fountain treat.
On November 14, 1889, investigative journalist Nellie Bly (whose real name was Elizabeth Jane Cochran), began a journey “around the world in eighty days.” Inspired by Jules Verne’s fictitious character Phileas Fogg and financed by the New York World, Bly was challenged to beat Fogg’s time and write about the journey for the newspaper. Over 1,000,000 people entered the newspaper’s contest to guess the time it would take Bly to finish.
On January 25, 1890, she made it back to New York City, beating Fogg in 72 days, 6 hours and 11 minutes. And, like Verne’s hero, her journey was celebrated in a board game.
I saw this board game at the Antique mall I think I should go back and buy itl! 🙂
FRENCH PAPIER MACHE & MOTHER-OF-PEARL CLOCK
The cases of Anglo-American clocks were made in England, while the parts were made in the United States.
*C.1875, Anglo-American Papier-mache wall clock, with an open spring time and strike movement, probably New Haven. *C.1870, Anglo-American, 8-day time & bell strike papier-mâché with MOP school house style wall clock. Condition: Black painted case with MOP & tole painted flowers and gold decoration is in very nice condition with some wear to the gold decoration. Original painted dial is very nice for its age. Hands are original. Movement was made by the New Haven Clock Co. *found these descriptions.
thanks for reading my blog!!! 🙂
