1111 Route 376

Owned by the New York City socialite, artist and lifestyle brand Old Fashioned Mom CEO Michelle-Marie Heinemann, this Hudson Valley estate is decorated and decorated and decorated. Heinemann told the Wall Street Journal: “It’s been like a little baby in a cradle. It’s been loved, adored and respected and, as a result, it’s grown.”

Heinemann, who says she is “moved by color and texture,” covered every wall, floor and ceiling with something either wildly colorful or ornate. The entrance all greets guests with painted stairs and a two-story filled with art.

The three-story solarium lets in tons of natural light (clearly enough to grow blue trees).

The dining room, that can easily fit a 20-person table plus an extra seating area, has sloped, cloud painted ceilings and wood floors.

The kitchen has two banquettes and built-in cabinets.

There are some cozier rooms in the home but all have ornate lighting fixtures and fireplaces. Every room has either visual or physical access to the outside.

A formal antechamber has ornate stained glass windows, wallpaper on the walls and ceilings and french doors leading to the veranda.

A gorgeous, two-story solarium is large enough to have two seating areas and a grand piano. The 35-foot tall glass is bulletproof.

And a spacious private guest cottage where friends can stay for extraordinarily long amounts of time and never get in owner’s way.

There is also a solarium, two libraries, eight wood-burning fireplaces, two kitchens, a wine cellar, an ice rink, a home theatre, a three-story glass rotunda in private wing, multiple verandas and an art gallery. There are also three “tiny houses” on the property, ranging from 550 to 675 square feet, to house staff.

As if all of that was not odd enough, there is an “apartment” in the property that is listed on HomeAway for $324 a night. So if you are thinking of buying, maybe just spend a few nights and see what you think.

This residence evokes a spirit of comfort and an entertaining ambience at every turn. It’s a one-of-a-kind masterpiece awaiting that one client seeking grand and extraordinary.

At the Mid-Hudson Heritage Center, grades 1, 4 and 7 from the Private Dutchess Day School created beautiful and extraordinarily elaborate Mexican Skulls and Skeletons for all to view.

Dia de los Muertos, which means Day of the Dead is an interesting Holiday celebrated in Central and Southern Mexico. The tradition honors the dead and celebrates the lives of the deceased with food, drink, parties and activities the Dead enjoyed in life.

img_2768img_2777

Alison Rowland, the beloved Art Teacher at Dutchess Day School presented a lavish collection made by her students, under her talented and inspirational eye the children’s imaginations were free to soar with endless creativity exuding all the marvelous colors and textures that so capture the Mexican tradition of the celebrated Holiday.

Hudson Heinemann and Derrick Rosse, both 4th graders displayed unique originality in their Skelton figures. “I really enjoyed making these clay skeletons and learning about this festive Holiday, there is so much to learn from other cultures. Ms. Rowland is an amazing Art Teacher and I look forward to all the Art Projects we participate in.” said Hudson Heinemann.

Scholars trace the origins of the Modern Mexican Holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec Festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl. The Holiday has spread throughout the world, being absorbed within other deep traditions for honoring the dead. It has become a National Symbol and as such is taught for educational purposes in the Nations Schools. Many families celebrate “All Saints Day” associated with the Catholic Church.

Delicious Pan de Muerto was served at the Exhibition, which is a sweetened soft bread shaped like a bun then decorated with bone shaped phalanges pieces and topped with sugar.

A truly delightful Holiday!!

My son is a devout Republican and staunch political aficionado….which lead us to the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trumps victory speech Tuesday night held at Trumps Briarcliff Manor Golf Club. I have always encouraged my children to be involved and independent with their thoughts as I support them entirely in whatever decisions and choices they make….

The primary season is wrapping up with elections in New Jersey, California, and four other states. Trump told the relatively private crowd, “You’ve given me the honor to lead the Republican Party to victory this fall, and I am going to fight for you, the American people, like nobody has ever fought before. I am not a politician, I am just me. You’re going to see some real great things happen.”

My son, and his friend Evan Sims throughly enjoyed speaking with Al Baldasaro, who is the Chair of the State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs and a member of the New Hampshire House of Representatives. He promised to give a tour of the State House when my son is in New Hampshire for Camp this month….very excited was he!

This is one of the museum’s most popular annual seasonal exhibitions. Butterflies and moths make up a large group of insects known as the Order Lepidoptera (lep-i-DOP-ter-ah). The name—from the Greek lepido, “scale,” and ptera, “wings”—refers to a prominent feature of adult butterflies and moths, the tiny scales that cover the wings and the rest of the body.

Adult butterflies are wonderfully diverse in shape, size, and color. Active during the day, they live almost everywhere around the world, from Arctic tundra to tropical rain forests.

There are more than 250,000 known species of Lepidoptera, of which about 18,000 are butterflies. Based on their anatomy, butterflies are classified into five families. This exhibition features butterflies from three of the families: the Pieridae (PYAIR-i-dee), commonly known as whites and sulphurs; the Papilionidae (pah-pill-ee-ON-i-dee), or swallowtails; and the Nymphalidae (nim-FAL-i-dee), which includes morphos, longwings, and others.
