- Ranger black enamel on antennae & body (never used this before & it sort of 'blobbed' on the body. Most of this stuff is rather thick in viscosity, but my bottle was 'thin'. I took a scrap of c/s and tried to shovel the 'body part' back within the lines).
- Ranger stickles rubbed around on the wings for a bit of sparkle, also on the brown frame.
- border trim from some El Cheapo paper, done with an EK success punch, yellow grosgrain ribbon from stash
Now for some Mt. Vernon pictures....
Potomac River view from the piazza. I could picture the wonderous sunsets the Washingtons must have enjoyed.
Closer view of the tombs
This is a picture heavy post. I put a break after the card picture, so that if anyone didn't want to get bored with these pictures, you can just skip this part! I hope you enjoy the pictures...and hopefully, will entice anyone who is able to visit this place (and has never done so,) to consider a trip. It's $16. entrance fee for seniors, and was well worth it. Descendants had let the house fall into a sad state of disrepair, and the Mt. Vernon Ladies Association was able to purchase the house but not the contents. Over time this Association has been able to restore the house, retrieve some of the original contents.
I purchased a coffee table type book of Mt. Vernon, which had some pictures of the interior. I may scan some & post here, if anyone is interested. Please do let me know if you'd like to see something like this. Don't want to bore everyone to bits on this subject!!! <g>
Thanks for joining me, and have a grand day. Hugs.
