Simply Vintagegirl Blog 6 March 2014 When I picked up a little book titled “Free Grace and Dying Love,” I couldn’t help but begin pouring over its pages. The first part is a collection of devotions by Susannah Spurgeon and the second part is a biography on her life. Charles and Susannah Spurgeon’s story is a beautiful and inspiring one.

Marlins Park in Miami, Baseball’s Newest Stadium Lumbering and dizzyingly white in the Florida sun, the new Marlins Park is an elliptical concrete, steel and glass boulder looming above the low-rise houses and empty lots of the Little Havana neighborhood. With retail on the outside and a public plaza in front, it’s designed partly to gin up some street life. Economic development is supposed to follow — that was the rationale for the public financing that covered most of the $634 million project ($515 million for the park itself) and contributed to the recall of Miami-Dade County’s mayor. Cities are always building new stadiums with the justification that they’ll catalyze the local economy. They rarely do. At the same time, the ballpark is unlikely to satisfy aficionados of the latest trends in architecture, but it is nonetheless a modern building, with genuine panache, as opposed to another pastiche.

Overlooked Feminist Architect Gets Her Due It was a cold January day in 2011 when I had last seen the Hotel Lafayette, the grand French Renaissance Revival styled brick that sits on the corner of Washington and Clinton Streets in downtown Buffalo, New York’s Lafayette Square. Built between 1901 and 1904, it was originally designed by Louise Blanchard Bethune (1856-1913), lead architect on the project with her firm Bethune, Bethune & Fuchs, which included her husband Robert Bethune and former apprentice William L.

Nice Bedroom Idea: Fun Fold-Out Double-Loft Bed Designs Loft bed designs are great saving space furniture for small condos, apartments and dorms, but they are not exactly the most elegant solution to a lack of room in your living or bedroom.

Some versions of the so-called Lollipop Bed from BonBon bedroom furniture designers some fold down side-by-side other options fold out on top of one another, complete with a ladder to reach the upper lofted bed and a convenient security rail alongside it. Options on these models include fold-up headboards for extra support and even an attached fold-out desk that sits in nicely front of (and folds under) the lower of the two bunks.
