The cards were of great quality. When I ordered them the confirmation said they would be ready in two days. Two hours later I got a call and an email saying they were ready!
The staples I went to has terrible customer service.
Ordered this at 2AM after I could not sleep, then immediately went to Staples website to design my cards. The redemption process is easy and there are so many great designs. When I submitted my order, it said Staples would have my order done by 8PM that day. They called at noon and said they were done! Great quality product and super fast service!
Couldn’t be easier, bought the Groupon, placed my order, and picked up my Christmas cards a couple hours later. They look great and you can’t beat the price at less than 20 cents each

This new Williamsburg pop-up-turned-restaurant is serving succulent modern takes on Jewish staples
Greenpoint residents have been singing the praises of Edith’s, a Jewish pop-up that serves modern takes on Jewish staples, since August, when owner Elyssa Heller first started operating out of the kitchen of Paulie Gee’s pizzeria. It’s now time for the rest of New York to enjoy the spot’s wonderful food, as Edith’s officially opened its first brick-and-mortar store yesterday on Lorimer Street in Williamsburg. Named after the owner’s great aunt, patrons can expect both a sandwich counter and a deli upon entry.
All the bagels served are hand-twisted and they range from sesame to poppy to Chicago (“Edith’s signature everything bagel with some heat” in the form of red pepper flakes). Menu highlights include the NY Classic (house-smoked salmon, amba pickled shallots, heirloom tomato, house-cultures cream cheese on a bagel), the Middle Eastern (served on a sesame bagel, it’s an omelette featuring house-made tomato jam, Israeli farmers cheese, zaatar and olive oil) and the BEC&L (bacon, omelette, Vermont sharp cheddar and a crispy latke).
But it is the Maghreb that has been turning heads and exciting palates since August. Served on a poppy bagel, it is an omelette sandwich also filled with a house-made merguez patty, house-cultured labneh and cilantro, served with house-made harissa on the side. We dare say it is one of the most delicious treats your can currently find in New York for less than $13.
Pita sandwiches and ones served on house-baked bread are also available. You’re going to want to try the roasted vegetable sabich—a re-imagined Israeli staple boasting roasted veggies, garlic aioli, house-cultured labneh, zaatar and olive oil topped with a 6-minute egg—and the Edith. The latter house-baked whey rye bread sandwich features a 6-hour house-smoked brisket pastrami (you read that right) with house-fermented sauerkraut, emmenthal cheese and Edith’s special sauce.
In addition to the deli options, the space is also home to a retail section filled with Lebanese beverages, Israeli candies and more. Basically, Edith’s is a feast for the culinary senses… which is exactly what we’re craving as New York starts opening back up.

The Vineyards at Jockey’s Neck, A Williamsburg VA Spotlight — Mr Williamsburg
The Vineyards at Jockey’s Neck is set within view of the James River in James City County Virginia and just 4 miles from the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg. The community was conceived in 1989. Homesites for just 99 homes were planned on 224 acres of tranquil land adjacent to the acclaimed Williamsburg Winery.
Among the first things people notice when driving through The Vineyards are the large lots and lovely homes; the wide streets; and the gorgeous views of lakes, marshes, and vineyards. This, alone, makes The Vineyards a special place; but it is what you do not see that makes our neighborhood a great place to call home. A quiet reside
ntial setting located just outside of Colonial Williamsburg and near both historic Jamestown and Yorktown. This Wooded community is situated adjacent to the vineyards of the Williamsburg Winery . The Vineyards has its own upscale clubhouse, tennis courts, swimming pool , playground, walking trails, and two picturesque lakes.
Home construction started in the Vineyards in 1991 and continues through today. There are still a few choice lots left to build your own custom dream home. The majority of the homes in the Vineyards were built by local builder Ron Staples (R.A. Staples Contracting), one of Williamsburg’s premier builders. I would be happy to introduce you if you want to build a custom home in the Vineyards.
Larger homes are the rule with the smallest being 2800 sq. feet and the average being 4300 square feet. Lot sizes range from .40 acre up to 3 acres with the majority having larger wooded private lots. Home owners fees are $425 quarterly and cover all common area maintenance, use of the pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, playground and lake.
Some Quick Facts about the Vineyards at Jockey’s Neck Community
The Vineyard’s At Jockey’s Neck Our Neighborhood Today
Over the centuries, the area has evolved from hunting grounds and farmland into a quiet, but vibrant, neighborhood nestled among the lush vineyards of the Williamsburg Winery. With 98 home sites, the Vineyards is a neighborhood where one tends to know everyone if not by name, then by car, child, or pet. The neighborhood is a true melting pot with residents from the four corners of the USA to around the globe. We are a mix of families with children from tots to teens, empty-nesters, singles, couples, and retirees.
With the arrival of warm weather, The Vineyards awakens to a buzz of activity. The entire neighborhood enjoys our summertime weekly cookouts at the clubhouse that we fondly refer to as “Friday Frenzy” parents are outside with their children and sounds of laughter echo from the pool. Dog owners are out exercising their pets while joggers, bicyclists, and walkers are doing their thing to keep fit. Enjoying scenery and fresh air, older couples holding hands interrupt their stroll to chat with their neighbors. Paddle boats and rowboats on the lakes drift silently along, as fishermen on the banks cast out their lines, hoping to catch “the big one.” Beautiful gardens and flowers abound in The Vineyards as those whose labor of love is to coax their gardens into vistas of color. Is it any wonder that we love our neighborhood?
We hope that our predecessors would be proud of our close-knit community that they were instrumental in settling so many years ago. We owe them a debt of gratitude fro their hard work, sacrifices, and perseverance that made it possible for us to call The Vineyards at Jockey’s Neck home.
The people in our neighborhood are true neighbors — friendly, always ready and willing to lend a helping hand. We are not a cookie cutter neighborhood! There are families whose children range from infants to college aged young adults. There are “empty nesters,” couples with no children, and singles. While there may be a few natural born Virginians among us, most of our residents have made the choice to become Virginians! Here you will find people from all over our great country as well as the world. The professions of our residents are just as diverse as our population. Among your new neighbors you are sure to find common interests. You have to look no further than the neighborhood to find someone who shares your passion.
Laurel Lane Elementary, Berkeley Middle, and Lafayette High School are the public schools that serve our neighborhood. Among the private schools are Walsingham Academy, Williamsburg Christian Academy, Hampton Roads Academy, and Providence Classical School. The Vineyards young people have many opportunities to seek out and engage in a variety of local activities, such as swimming, basketball, track and cross-country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, art, music, theater, and dancing.
While not a neighbor in the usual sense of the word, The Williamsburg Winery is a neighborly place to visit. Let them know that you are a resident of The Vineyards and you will receive a discount on purchases plus free wine tours!
We Are a Charitable Neighborhood
Our neighborhood supports a variety of worthy causes. We donate to FISH, a community-based charity that provides food to families in need. The neighborhood also serves as host for an annual 5K race in August to raise money our local Child Development Resources center. For many years, The Vineyards supported the American Cancer Society Relay for Life event. Other noteworthy organizations that our neighborhood has supported include the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, The March of Dimes, American Heart Association, and CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), Faith in Action, Saint Bede’s Outreach Center and COFM (Community of Faith Mission), and Grove Outreach Center that provide food and clothing to families in need. Our neighborhood is proud that we are all involved in these worthwhile causes.
We Have Fun Together!
During the summer months, the neighborhood enjoys occasional Friday night get-togethers at the Clubhouse that we call “Friday Frenzies” (or “Friendsies,” as someone suggested). One or two couples act as hosts to provide the main entrée (the cost of which is reimbursed),and everyone else brings a dish to share. It is a relaxed, casual, family-friendly evening, making our Friday Frenzy a neighborhood signature. We hope that you and your family will join us at The Clubhouse for Friday Frenzy! Event dates are posted on the Community Calendar
The Hospitality Committee has compiled a neighborhood cookbook, A Vineyards Tour: Past to Present, published in June 2009. Filled with recipes submitted by our residents, this cookbook has become a favorite gift for family members and friends! In addition to delicious recipes, the cookbook contains historical information about our neighborhood, an original pen and ink drawing of The Vineyards Gazebo by a former resident, an original poem by one of our neighbors, and some 17th and 18th century recipes enjoyed by our forefathers. Additional cookbooks are available for $15 by contacting the Hospitality Committee.
Throughout the year, the Clubhouse is a gathering place for not only neighborhood events, but also private parties. The clubhouse is available for rent at a nominal charge and any resident in good standing may rent the facility for private parties. Application for rental is online; also, please contact Berkeley Realty for scheduling dates.
Of course, the pool is always a great place to spend a hot summer’s afternoon! The pool is open from Memorial Day Weekend through the Tuesday after Labor Day and is free to all residents in good standing. Our Neighborhood offers numerous opportunities to get involved and volunteers are always appreciated! If you would like to add your name to our list of volunteers, feel free to contact any committee or Board member.
Duffeler Nature Trail
The natural setting of the Vineyards community doesn’t end with acres of pastoral grape orchards – our proximity to College Creek affords a connection with nature few neighborhoods in the area offer. For the fitness enthusiast the Duffeler Nature Trail offers 5,300 steps over 2.55 miles which in 48 minutes can burn 425 calories in a breath-taking setting. For those who seek the simpler beauty of nature sightings of Deer, Turkey, Barred Owls, Eagles, Osprey and Herons among majestic stands of Pine and mature hardwoods there is little disappointment.

A brief beginners guide to visiting and living in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
New York is home to some truly legendary neighborhoods. SoHo’s shopping attracts visitors from across the globe. Greenwich Village has been the epicenter of cool for a century. The Upper East Side’s museums are serious business, as is the food and culture scene in Harlem.
One Brooklyn neighborhood, though, has become the across-the-river outpost for the best that New York has to offer. Williamsburg has something for everyone, and there’s much more to the neighborhood than Bedford Avenue. Here’s a brief beginner’s guide to Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Where to eat
There is no shortage of great restaurants in Williamsburg, from the scrumptious (if nap-inducing) Sweet Chick, to the New York City-staple Peter Luger. Low-fuss favorites like La Superior and Dim Sum Bar are your go-to’s for delicious meals under $15, but Williamsburg also has its fair share of splurge spots. Lilia slings some of New York’s best pasta out of a natural-light soaked space that was once an auto body shop, making this restaurant worth the trip from any borough. You’ve probably seen their impossibly-squiggly mafaldini on a dozen or so food Instagram accounts, and rest assured: it’s as tasty as it looks.
Where to drink
Whatever your drink of choice, Williamsburg has you covered. The borough’s best flat white can be had at Sweatshop, an Australian coffee shop that also serves some light bites. Their space is a bit cramped, so grab your coffee to go and stroll down to the water’s edge. After hours, take your pick from dozens of excellent watering holes. For date nights (first, or fiftieth) try The Four Horsemen. While a bit of an obvious choice, Horsemen’s extensive natural wine list and inviting atmosphere is likely to turn it into your usual spot. For something a bit more unusual, people flock from all over to (the temporarily closed) Baby’s All Right. Sort of dive-y, but still very friendly, you’re as likely to encounter a Vogue columnist as you are an impromptu concert at Baby.
Where to shop
If you took an eye-dropper full of SoHo and placed it in Williamsburg, the result would be Bedford Avenue. For this reason, Bedford and its surrounding streets is the unofficial shopping district of Williamsburg. Big-city staples like Madewell and lululemon have set up Williamsburg outposts, but the neighborhood still has its fair share of oddities. Awoke Vintage is perfect for perusing, and Mociun Fine Jewelry & Home’s retail showroom and offices are located on Driggs Avenue. Mociun’s hand-crafted jewelry and ceramics are as eclectic as the neighborhood they’re made in. Oh, and there’s also a Supreme store — if you’re into that.
Where to unwind
Though Williamsburg may have more of a neighborhood vibe, there are definitely times that it can feel every bit as bustling as the city. Fortunately, Williamsburg has plenty of perfect places to unwind. A stroll along the water’s edge offers fresh air and excellent views of lower Manhattan, but a trip to the Williamsburg Art and Historical Center makes for an ideal reprieve from the frenzy of the neighborhood. The WAH Center’s building, a former bank built in 1867, transports you back in time before you even break the building’s threshold. Inside lies one of Brooklyn’s largest collections of fine art, making this museum a great place to lose a couple hours–while finding your inner peace.
Where to live
With Williamsburg seemingly growing more appealing by the day, it’s no surprise that living there costs a pretty penny. In fact, you’re likely to find yourself paying Manhattan prices (or more) to call the ‘Burg home. Enter Common. With marginally lower rates than most other places in the neighborhood and included luxury amenities—like professional cleanings, in-suite laundry, high-speed WiFi, and furnished rooftops and movie rooms, living at Common means that you have more freedom to explore all of the incredible spots that we’ve listed here.
Want to learn more about why Common is the best way to live in Williamsburg? Schedule a tour of our Williamsburg homes, Common Havemeyer and Common Marcy, and see how sweet life across the bridge can be.
Waller Redd Staples
Waller Redd Staples (February 24, 1826 – August 21, 1897) was a Virginia lawyer, slave owner, and politician who briefly served on the Virginia General Assembly prior to the American Civil War, became a congressman serving the Confederate States of America during during the war, and after receiving a pardon at the end of the war, he became a judge of the Virginia Court of Appeals, a professor of law at the University of Washington and Lee University, and an auditor of the laws of Virginia (1884–1887).
Early and family life
Staples was born in Patrick County, Virginia to Colonel Abram Penn Staples and his wife, the former Mary Stovall Penn. His paternal grandfather, Samuel G. Staples, and his maternal grandfather, Abram Penn, served as soldiers in the United States War of Independence, the former commander of the Buckingham County, Virginia militia, including the Battle of Yorktown, and the latter leading the Henry County militia. His father was a clerk in Patrick County, as was his grandfather, Kezia Staples.His older brother Samuel Granville Staples (1821-1895) will remain in Patrick County and run the plantation until the war and, like his father, become a delegate and, like his younger brother, a judge. The Staples sons received a private education, then Waller Staples studied for two years at the University of North Carolina, and then moved to Williamsburg to study at the College of William and Mary and graduated in 1845, and then began to study law under the supervision of Judge Norbonne Taliaferro. in Franklin County.
Staples was an active member of the Presbyterian Church, but either never married or, if he did, his wife died between censuses.
Following graduation and admission to the Virginia State Bar, Staples moved to the mountains of Montgomery County, Virginia to begin his private law practice in his county, Christiansburg, and neighboring counties. He lived and worked under the direction of William Ballard Preston, who served as Secretary of the Navy during the reign of President Zachary Taylor and was his mother’s cousin.Staples later remarked that he never received more than $ 2,000 in royalties until 1883, when he began to represent large interests in private practice (after being expelled from the Virginia Court of Appeals along with all of his colleagues in a massive legislative reorganization.
Meanwhile, in 1854-1855, Staples represented Montgomery County in the Virginia House of Delegates as a Whig. He then ran for the United States House of Representatives in the 12th arrondissement as ignorant, but lost to incumbent Democratic President Henry Edmundson.By 1860, Staples was living in a hotel in Christiansburg owned by Thomas Wilson, along with several other lawyers and male professionals on less income than him. According to this census, Staples owned 41 enslaved people in Montgomery County, three of whom lived at his residence in Christiansburg, while the rest lived and worked further in the district.
However, he opposed secession until Virginia voters accepted the recommendation of the 1861 Virginia Secession Convention.He then paid for the equipment of the New River Grace, a militia unit led by Dr. James Preston Hammett (a VMI graduate who later studied medicine in Philadelphia), which was mobilized into the Confederate Army as Company H of the 24th Virginia Infantry Regiment.
Following Virginia’s secession from the Union and its acceptance into the Confederate States, Staples was named one of the four Virginia delegates to the Provisional Congress of the Confederate States on February 22, 1862, along with William K.Reeves, RMT Hunter and John W. Brockenbrough. The following year, he was elected to the First and Second Congresses of the Confederation, where he served in the Confederate House of Representatives from 1862 until the end of the war. His brother Samuel G. Staples volunteered for the Confederate States Army and served as assistant to General JB Stewart; his relatives James S. Redd and Spottswood Redd were also captains. Waller Staples appears to have served with the local Wade Defense Regiment in Washington and White Counties, Virginia, and by the end of the war became a critic of President Jefferson Davis.
Post-war judicial and legal career
A few months after the Confederation admitted defeat, Staples signed documents stating that he would never own slaves again, as well as assurances of future loyalty to the Union, and on November 3, 1865, received a federal pardon from President Andrew Johnson. Then he renewed his law. practice in Montgomery County. However, his financial situation deteriorated significantly, so that at the age of 43 in 1870, Staples owned only $ 10,000 real estate and $ 5,000 personal property.
In February 1870, months after Virginia voters rejected a proposed constitutional provision making former high-ranking Confederate officials ineligible to hold public office (but approved a constitution permitting their readmission to the Union), the newly elected and re-assembled General The Virginia Assembly elected Staples to the Supreme Court of Appeal for a term of twelve years. He received the second most votes, not counting the fact that for long-term judge Richard K.L. Moncure. As an appellate judge, Staples served at Washington and Lee University Law School from 1877 to 1878. His most famous court decisions may have actually been his opposition to the legality of the 1871 Funding Act.
By the time the terms of all judges of the Court of Appeal expired in 1882 (despite disagreements over the term of office of the judge appointed to replace the deceased lawyer), the Reorganization Party, which Staples sympathized with, controlled the state legislature.However, none of the judges of the Court of Appeal were re-elected. However, the new Redjuster-minded judges would later accept what was Staples’ disagreement in the government bond coupon cases. Thus, Staples returned to private practice in partnership with Beverly Munford of Richmond, a firm called Staples & Munford. The state of Virginia also hired Staples to challenge coupon cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, assisting Virginia Attorney General James J. Field in Anthony v. Greenhow and Stewart v. Virginia (1885).). Staples was also a Democratic elector in the 1884 US presidential election, but refused to run for governor or attorney general.
Beginning in 1884, Staples was also a co-editor of the 1887 Virginia Code, along with Edward C. Burks and John W. Riley, both of whom also served as judges on the Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals until the 1883 reorganization. In 1893-94, Staples became president of the Virginia Bar Association.Perhaps his most profitable client was the Richmond and Danville Railroad.
In one of his most famous legal losses, Staples represented the estate managers of a wealthy white man from Pittsylvania County named Thomas, estranged from his relatives after he admitted that his daughters had ended their relationship with one of his former slaves who lived with them. daughters, and repeatedly on his deathbed in 1889 declared his intention to make the only surviving daughter his only heir, but who died before actually fulfilling the will.The Richmond Chancellor’s Court – and then the Virginia Supreme Court in a finding announced by Justice Thomas T. Fauntleroy in response to Judge Benjamin W. Lacey’s disagreement – rejected arguments put forward by Staples and his three associate attorneys in favor of those by his former colleague Burks and Republican leader Edgar Allan and their fellow lawyer who made Betty Lewis and her husband rich, although they soon moved to Philadelphia.
Governor Fitzhugh Lee appointed Brace to the Visitors’ Council of Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College in Blacksburg on January 1, 1886, and his fellow members elected him rector (highest office at the university) on January 23, 1886, although Staples died about a year later….
Death and Legacy
Staples may have become disabled before his death in Christianburg in 1897. He is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Roanoke.

90,000 Top 12 Things to Do in Williamsburg & Easy Day Trips
Colonial Williamsburg, one of America’s most famous cities with a living history, is not a reproduction or a collection of buildings collected from elsewhere.It was the capital of the colony (and later the state) of Virginia from 1705 to 1779, and today it recreates those times in their original location, often in the original buildings. Others are being meticulously rebuilt or restored to their original sites.
But Williamsburg is not only for history buffs, but also not for the Revolution. Its tourist attractions include two outstanding art museums, a main theme park and a water park. Even if you don’t go to Williamsburg for its history, you will enjoy walking through the restored neighborhood where you will meet people dressed in 18th century clothing and busy with everyday life more than two centuries ago.Discover interesting things to see with our list of top attractions in Williamsburg.
1. Colonial Williamsburg: Revolutionary City
In over 100 original and reconstructed buildings from the 1700s, costumed translators recreate the excitement of the era just before and during the American Revolution in the thriving colonial capital. Along with the daily lives of artisans, shopkeepers and city residents, there are daily rehearsals for police drills, trials, political gatherings and other events, many of which are held outdoors.Others are in the beautiful Capitol Building , which for 80 years was the political center of Virginia, one of England’s largest and wealthiest colonies.
Also offers candlelight tours, carriage rides and special interest tours such as gardens (Colonial Williamsburg has over 100). Be sure to check the day’s schedule to find the activities and tours that interest you, as some don’t repeat often. While you can walk Duke of Gloucester Street through the center of the restored district, eat in taverns and shop, you cannot enter any of the historic buildings or gardens without a ticket, and even the street may be limited by tickets – holders for any of the many costume parades and reenactments.Tourists can pre-purchase tickets that provide access to all Colonial Williamsburg’s museums, historic sites, including Governor’s Palace , renovations and other attractions.

The original royal governor’s house was completed in 1722, but it burned down to the ground and was replaced by a copy in 1934 year.The Governor’s Palace was Williamsburg’s social center, a venue for gala dinners and balls, and was built to impress the locals with royalty. After the revolution, the first two governors of Virginia lived there. Inside, along with beautifully furnished rooms, you will see an exhibit of antique firearms and swords. Outside, you can explore the terraced gardens that include a maze of hedges, peek into the kitchen and cutlery to watch the food being prepared.
3. George White House
George White House, the finest private home in Williamsburg, was built for a famous lawyer in the mid-18th century. Today, it is decorated and furnished with antiques, so you can see what life in Williamsburg would have been like in the 1700s. George White was one of the most enlightened and influential men of the Revolutionary era, mentor to Thomas Jefferson and other patriots and leaders of Virginia. He was a delegate to the Continental Congress and signed the Declaration of Independence.But the house’s extraordinary history doesn’t end there. It was the headquarters of General George Washington before the British siege of Yorktown and the headquarters of the French General Rochambeau after the victory at Yorktown. In 1776, Thomas Jefferson and his family stayed here while he was a delegate to the Virginia General Assembly. Along with the house, there are outbuildings that include a kitchen, smokehouse, dovecote and stables, as well as lovely gardens.
4. Colonial Taverns
In Colonial Virginia, taverns were the place where locals and travelers gathered for news, food and socializing.Some of those who live in Williamsburg are still active restaurants, where you can get a feel for 18th century social life and taste authentic food that Jefferson or Washington might try here. Raleigh Tavern was a popular social area among the members of House of Burgess, and equally popular was Weatherburn Tavern , located directly across the street. Balls and banquets were held at both taverns, and during the restoration some 200,000 artifacts were discovered at Wetherburn’s site.
The Royal Armory Tavern opened in 1722 and served the nobles with the finest furnishings and service. Today it continues this standard as the premier dining hall in the historic district with 18th century musical entertainment. Much more informal is Chowning’s Tavern , which first opened in 1766 to cater to lesser clientele. Today, the restaurant maintains this spirit by serving traditional English cuisine, as well as evening gumballs with colonial games and music.George Washington’s favorite was Christiana Campbell’s Tavern and you can still enjoy Christiana’s special seafood platter here just like him. Shields Tavern offers a varied home menu in a relaxed atmosphere.
Some of the taverns are also considered centers of paranormal activity and feature in many of the city’s ghost stories.

Ladies’ Cap and Clay Pot | Russian Bazaar
Walking past Madison Square Park recently, I turned around out of my old habit and found there four large sculptures by the famous sculptor Ursula von Riedingsward. Three of them are new works of hers and were created specifically for the open-air exhibition in this Manhattan park. The new exposition was presented to the audience on May 15 and will last until December 31 of this year.
A common material from which von Riedingsward creates his works are square cedar beams with a cross-sectional side of about 10 centimeters and a length of two and a half to three and a half meters, which she stacks, cuts and combines, then fastened with metal staples hidden inside the structure. A chisel, a hammer, a hand-held circular saw and a sander are her usual tools with which she carefully processes wood to achieve refinement, sophistication and strength in forms.
Although at first a couple of her large wooden sculptures reminded me of not very well-folded woodpiles, which I myself had to put together from birch blocks in childhood, when my father and I were stocking up on firewood for the long Siberian winter. And only after taking a closer look, I realized that everything is not so simple.
The first sculpture I came across almost at the very entrance to the park is called “Ted’s desert reigns”. I don’t know why it’s called that. It seemed to me that I saw in front of me huge feet with toes crippled by arthritis.It is unlikely that they belong to Ted – rather, an unfortunate snowman, it is not known how he got into the desert. Swollen by the heat, he did not sit very comfortably on the sloping green slope with his head down, which is why he himself cannot be seen – only the soles of his feet are visible. True, the third leg also came from somewhere. He’s probably not lying there alone. In general, a mystery.
Two other sculptures – “Czara z Babelkami” and “Bowl with Fins” are also created from cedar beams. They reflect Riedingsward’s more familiar artistic language and her most frequently used forms of household items: bowls, cups and simple flower vases.Despite their monumental size, the surface of the sculptures is carefully, I would even say assiduously, processed. For example, “Czara z Babelkami” is equipped with circularly and almost symmetrically located pimples. Incidentally, the fashion for this kind of decoration of the surface of glass vases and vessels was widespread among American glass manufacturers in the middle of the last century. This finish was called “hobneil” and gave a peculiar look to the cups and bowls decorated in this way.
Numerous pimples on the surface of the sculpture make it look like a huge warty raincoat mushroom that has grown to an incredible size in the shade of the dense trees of the park. Just about it will ripen, and the Bigfoot will knock him down with his knife, rising from the neighboring glade to see how he “smokes”, dissipating spores from the cracks that have arisen in the burst shell – as we did ourselves in our distant childhood.
Finally, the third sculpture, made of cedar and called “Bowl with Fins”, is indeed very similar to the ribbed clay pot or cast iron that was placed in the oven when cooking cabbage soup for the whole family.
However, the central work of the exhibition is a sculpture set on the Oval Lawn called Damski Czepek – “Lady’s Cap” in Polish.
Sculpture continues the old artistic tradition of Ursula von Riedingsward – she uses in her works the forms of various objects of everyday household utensils. However, this time for the first time she performed her work from a new material for herself – polyurethane. As usual, it all started with the idea of a new image object, “which has haunted me for a long time,” says the sculptor.She decided to sculpt the most common household item – a bonnet, the fruit of her childhood memories. But the favorite material, cedar beams, was in no way suitable for making a new object due to its weight and insufficient plasticity.
It all started with the fact that at first Ursula made her more than four-meter cap out of her usual material – cedar, in her studio located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Then the sculpture was disassembled and transported to the other end of the country, to the state of Washington, to a foundry, where it was made from polyurethane, a synthetic polymer that is easily dyed in different colors and has high wear, moisture and acid resistance.
As a result, the “Ladies’ cap” turned, on the one hand, into a fairly easily recognizable object, and on the other, into an abstract form. Apparently, this is why the gray polyurethane hood at first seemed to me similar to the orchestral shell, which were previously installed in our parks. On the stage of such shells made of boards and plywood, pop concerts were held or musicians who played dances were sitting there.
It’s just that in the kind of works that Urusula von Riedingsward demonstrates to us, everyone sees first of all something of his own, and then he guesses the author’s idea.I have never worn a bonnet, so the thought of seeing a multi-fold and somewhat stylized female headdress came to me last.
The sculptor chose the northern part of the Oval Lawn of the park for the installation of her new work, where the translucent shape of the cap can be best seen in the morning sun. His “strings” are stretched out on the lawn in front of him and are made so that they can serve as small benches for children and adults.
In the works of von Riedingsward, a certain grace is felt, but most importantly – human warmth and touching.
Ursula von Riedingsward was born in Germany in 1942, 4 years after her parents were forced to leave Poland, where they had previously lived, due to the outbreak of hostilities. Her early childhood was spent in various refugee camps, in which her father was engaged in agriculture. In 1950, the family emigrated to the United States. Here Ursula graduated from high school and then studied sculpture at Columbia University, where she received her master’s degree in 1975. Since that time, she began to work with cedar timber, which is quite easy to process and at the same time is quite resistant to adverse weather influences.
In the same year, she had her first solo exhibition in New York. Since then, her work has been exhibited in museums and art galleries in many countries. Her sculptures are featured in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of Art and the Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York, as well as in museums and art galleries in many states of our country.
This September, an exhibition of her work will take place at the Galerie Lelong, located in New York’s Chelsea borough.
Von Riedingsward has visited Poland more than once, the birthplace of her parents, speaks good Polish and often gives Polish names to her works.For example, the same “Czara z Babelkami”, which can be roughly translated as “A bowl with pimples or bubbles.” The Polish word “chara” has the same root as our Russian chara.
Von Riedingsward has become widely known for her wooden sculptures, which owe their origin to simple household items – unpretentious gizmos, the memory of which is inspired by childhood memories associated with the parental home. These are ordinary cups, bowls and pots, peasant tools and some simple elements of the rural landscape, the external simplicity of which, recreated in sculpture, reveals their modest attractiveness and deep humanity.
While is an antique instrument can be said to be one that is over a hundred years old, the term is often used to describe any old quality instrument that could be considered a collectible.
The use of tools is one of the main means of distinguishing humans from other animals.Tools are the ancestors of all other antiques. Most of the objects were man-made, and great efforts are being made to create new and better tools for solving manufacturing problems today. Studying ancient instruments provides insight into the history of human development and cultural preferences.
Tool creation often makes it possible to create more advanced tools. Modern tools have made it possible to manufacture internal combustion engines, automobiles and computers.Among those who love to collect, some may do so as part of a rigorous curriculum – for example, they want to catalog all types of a certain instrument. Some collectors may wish to preserve some of the past for future generations, others fall under the charm of the beauty of some antique instruments.
Collection of categories
Tool categories range from broad tools such as planers, rulers, staples, hammers, and more, to specialty tools such as those made by the Gage Company in Vineland, NJ.Newbies to the hobby should know that there are many good modern guides to help you with your search, as well as many re-editions of the directories that originally offered these tools. Often, tools exhibit differences that contrast with the different locations of their creators, or different features that contrast with different time periods.
Here are some of the ways people collect tools:
- Tools from a particular company or manufacturer – for example, L.Bailey Victor Tools, Seneca Falls Tool Company Tools, Miller’s Falls Tools, Disston Saws, Chelor Airplanes, etc.
- Certain types of tools – hammers, shackles, axes, saws, proprietary planes, transition planes, pedal driven machines, etc. D.
- Periodic instruments – instruments from 1850 to 1900, post-WWII instruments, etc. D.
- Instruments from a specific location – Scottish instruments, instruments from Massachusetts manufacturers, etc.D.
- Tools of a certain occupation – cooperage tools, locksmith tools, watchmaker tools, garden tools.
- A combination of one or more of the above categories – for example, one from each specific type of Stanley tool, that is, all Stanley saws, all Stanley gauges, all Stanley planes, etc.
- A “case study” of one particular model, for example , sample study of Stanley jointers # 6 or Norris Smooth planes A5.
- Tools that show how a particular idea has evolved over time, such as tools that track the evolution of aircraft adjustment mechanisms, or tools that show how an early patent was purchased and developed by another company.
- Instrumental advertising and catalogs.
Sickles and scythes
American history of hay cutting tools begins with the header. Its thin, ultra-sharp semicircular blade was used to cut grass for hay and required a certain skill to use it successfully.By the late 1800s, the less skillful sickle had become the tool of choice for mowing hay. The sickle blade was serrated and less round than the header hook. Using this tool required less fineness and more cutting technique. It was used in conjunction with a wooden herbal hook, which could hold up standing grass by running a sickle blade through a rack. Modern sickles will appear to the modern viewer with smooth blades, as the prongs tend to wear off over time.
Scythes are long-handled grass-cutting tools for cutting large amounts of hay. The graceful shape of the braids of the late 18th and early 19th centuries hinted at the grace and art required for the correct use of the instrument. The blade was straighter than that of the sickle, with an almost straight side of the blade and a slightly curved blunt side. The handle, called snot , is usually made from hardwood native to the production area, with small handrails strategically placed, called nibs .The earliest braids were not serrated. Later braids had two points. The scythe was an effective tool used by an experienced hand, cutting hectares of green hay with methodical precision. The braids were a prized possession of the early Americans and, carefully protected from abuse and bad weather, could serve for centuries.

Devilry on Austrian streets: Krampuslauf
Saint Nicholas, from whom the image of Santa Claus in America came, in the Alpine region is adjacent to the antipode – Krampus.This monster originated in Alpine folklore in the 13-14 centuries, which lashes disobedient children with birch rods, and throws especially bad children into a bag on their backs to take them to their den, poison them and eat them for their Christmas dinner. Krampuslauf (from Krampus + laufen, i.e. go) in the city of Bregenz in the westernmost state of Austria, bordering Lake Constance and Germany, took place in 2018 on the evening of November 24. There is a bustle on the streets, everyone is trying to take comfortable places, it starts to get scary:
Spectators in anticipation:
A stray Krampus runs with a smoke bomb, enveloping everything in the mist.Beating with hooves, a monster with huge crooked horns crawls out:
There are more and more of them:
They look around, looking for naughty children:
Some creatures have eyes shining:
@ @ Ah, there you are, I was looking for you!
It turns out that these creatures run very fast. Instant:
And now he is next to me, trying to reach me with his gnarled paw:
Look, son, there is Masha, who did not eat porridge in the morning, strangling her first.She is weak, you can handle it:
Krampus has horns like an Alpine ibex. Sotona:
Well, well, who hasn’t eaten porridge here yet?
I smell, it smells of childish fear:
Noticing that you are looking in their direction, they rush to you to painfully unfasten with rods:
It is better not to meet with their eyes @ _ @
with which Krampuses are thundering – a symbol of the shackles worn on them by the church:
The word Krampus comes from the German die Krampe – hook or bracket:
The most colorful one who killed the highlander put his hat on his head, through which they sprouted horns:
And the dead mountaineer himself lies with Krampus in a bag behind his back, from which his legs stick out:
Since during the procession you can get non-illusory pussies, the participants were once obliged to wear numbers by which they can be calculate for a preventive conversation.
