Rosecliff Mansion

I have been attending a series of quest speakers, dramatic readings and more
about the book and movie "The Great Gatsby"
All events took place in the room above
at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, R.I.
where many party scenes from the movie where filmed..
Who can forget Robert Redford and Mia Farrow in this tragic love story
by F. Scott Fitzgerald
during the roaring 20's....

Rosecliff was commissioned by
Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899...
A silver heiress.
The house was completed in 1902
at a reported cost of $2.5 million...

Mrs. Oelrichs hosted fabulous entertainments here,
including a fairy tale dinner and a party featuring famed magician Harry Houdini
here is the party filmed in the back yard at Rosecliff...

Can you imagine the parties, the clothing, the food, the jewels?

Will be attending a Gatsybian like Jazz concert there soon,
cannot wait.

it's cold out there...

As the song goes "Baby it's cold out There!" Makes me nostalgic about skating again.
This holiday I decorated my doors with skates, perfect to keep up all winter long. On the side door, above, hang my actual skates from when I was a teen.

My skates had big red rabbit fur pompoms with a bell on top, loved them! The bells alerted everyone at the Somerset Marsh that I had another tumble. The fur ones are long gone so I added these red pompoms.

Any skating stories you care to share?
