When all that’s left is installation of the new shades and cleaning, you 👏🏻 all day! (In this room at least...) Happy holiday week, everyone!
maybe i’ve been binging too much of ≪ the chilling adventures of sabrina ≫ on netflix but does this place not belong on that set??
Glen Auburn, built as the residence of Christian Schwartz in 1875, is the finest example of Second Empire architecture in the state of Mississippi. With its Mansard roof and tower, the mansion located on South Commerce Street is a true representation of the French high style.

Happy Mansard Monday! May your day be as sunny as this home. 🌞 (FYI, Mansard: a roof style that has four sloping sides, each of which become steeper halfway down.) @Regrann
- 1872. “Rachel M. Trafford House.” This Second Empire home is next door and nearly identical to the blue and red house that I posted last week. It was built by the widow Rachel M. Trafford, and she lived there until 1902, when she moved into another Fall River mansion. According to her obituary, “She was a woman of a pleasant and social nature, displaying excellent judgment in everything she did. She was much interested in the Day Nursery and in the Woman’s Union, and attended the Central Congregational Church.” (www.accessgeneology.com) #mansardmonday
It’s always so satisfying to create something from nothing, and this bathroom is a testament to that... it used to be a closet! Being a multigenerational home in its beginning, #parkaveprojectstl
has 3 full floors of living, but only had 1 full bathroom when we got our hands on it.... so the decision was made to modernize and add a bath on the top floor. With some second hand tile and a little creativity, it’s becoming a fun little space!

Good people of Instagram...I need your opinions. So, for the last 10 years we have had the same 32" TV, which still works beautifully. It served us well in our little rancher, but it was dwarfed in this big living room, so it was time for an upgrade. Queue in this monstrosity...I love our new TV, I adore it...but it is the most un-victorian thing I have ever seen. Now let's be realistic here...Yes, we want this house to be as period accurate as possible, but the reality is...we still have to live here and, like it or not, the TV has to stay. There's no other wall to put it in so now the question is...how to blend it in? The credenza you see there is just temporary, it needs to be refinished and moved to another room, so that will be gone, and we will be buying a more period appropriate piece of furniture for the TV components...but around the TV, what should I put there? Something above the TV? Something on the sides? What do you think? At least we were able to hide the cables! 😁

Love it or loathe it, hair was an important material used in jewelry right up until the 20th century. Hair symbolized a piece of a cherished person. Often used in mourning jewelry but also in jewelry symbolizing love or friendship. Marie Antoinette gave Madame Campan a ring for Madame de Lamballe, in which she put a small bundle of her now completely white hair. The inscription read “bleached by unhappiness”. Here are our some hair pieces we have in our collection. DM for details. (Pearl, rose gold & hair ring - personal collection).

You guys...you guys...you guuuuys!!! Take a look at this! Ok...quick back story...I signed for an account with Newspapers.com and started doing some research, and I came across this article...Published February 14th, 1908 in the York Daily newspaper, the title reads: "Dallastown Man Entertains Friends"...Look..at..this...article!!! You all remember Chauncey, right? He was about to marry his father's housekeeper but died two weeks before the wedding? The more I find out about Chauncey, the more I discover his character. He clearly was a socialite, a man who liked to entertain, and I have learned that he had a few flings before Idabelle, all women of high social status, which makes me wonder why he chose a housekeeper to settle down? Nothing wrong with that, but he could have had any woman he wanted...why choose her? What was it about Idabelle that tamed Chauncey? But anyway...isn't this the absolutely most victorian thing you ever read? (I know it's past victorian time, but if you have ever watched a period drama you will know exactly what I mean)

It may not seem like much, but having the front door stripped, painted, rehung and new hardware installed has made a world of difference in the entry at #parkaveprojectstl
Now that I’m back in Maryland, it’s time to post a picture of Connecticut! This is the Lockwood-Matthews Mansion, which is one of the earliest built Second Empire style country houses still surviving in the United States.

철근콘크리트가 아닌 오직 벽돌로만 이루어진 건물! 프랑스의 Second Empire 양식으로 건축한 시청사 건물에는 하얀 시계탑 위에 1m 정도의 윌리엄 펜(필라델피아 개척자) 동상이 세워져 있다.
이날 비바람이 장난 아니었는데 강풍일경우 혹시라도 저 동상이 쓰러지면 대형사고 나겠구나 싶더라~ 굳이 탑 위에 동상을 세우는 이유가 뭘까? 알것 같지만 굳이~~ 하는 마음이 동하는건 어쩔수 없더라^^ 암튼 숙소에서 시청사까지 마켓스트릿을 따라 걷다가 시청을 통과후 기념촬영, 다시 필라델피아뮤지엄을 향해 록키를 만나러 발길을 옮겼다.

FRI-YAY 🙌🏻 I’m doing my little happy dance that the #masterbath
is finally. coming. together. So many more things going on right now, but that will all come in due time!
The snow 🌨 is coming down quickly up here in Trois-Rivières, Québec. I’m staying in today. Thought I’d play with my rings, while I sit next to the window sill & watch the snow fall. All four rings still available. Blue Bristol ring & Garnet ring high interest. DM for details.
Chateau De Fontainebleau, France 🇫🇷 Since you liked the Palace of Fontainebleau so much here is another post about this fabulous Palace:) 🌷This picture is of the Emperor’s bedroom .
In 1808, Napoleon I decided to move his bedroom to the old “cabinet à la poudre” of the king. Thus, Napoleonic emblems are added to the decor as well as the furniture from Jean-Baptiste Rode along with the marvelous bed of state 👑 🛏.

⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️⚜️ 🌷 Did you know:
Famous Italian painters and sculptors were called to court to further accentuate this Palace. They joined a group of talented French artists. Together these artists are referred to as the School of Fontainebleau.
If you’ve been to this Palace and would like to write about it please DM me! Don’t worry I can help you edit your article:)

Here is another old timey picture for you! This is J. W. Minnich. He is the one for which the house is named after. I did a lotnof research on this house and, apparently, there was another property here, but when he bought it he did extensive renovations to make the house what it is today. He was a business man (and a very good one apparently as he was one of the richest man in town), and he owned a cigar factory. Apparently, cigar manufacturing was all the rage in Dallastown at the time. He was born 1860, and died in 1940 (or was it 1941?). And according to a newspaper clipping that I found, he once lost his umbrella and it was a very big deal because the whole ordeal was published in the newspaper. Anyway...can I just draw your attention to the cane?? You guys, he has a cane, just for show, like what you see in movies!!! Isn't he dapper?
