Gazebo Drapes

gazebo drapes

  • a small roofed building affording shade and rest

  • A gazebo is a pavilion structure, sometimes octagonal, in parks, gardens, and spacious public areas. Gazebos are freestanding or attached to a garden wall, roofed, and open on all sides; they provide shade, shelter, ornamental features in a landscape, and a place to rest.

  • Paul Mazzolini (born February 18, 1960; stage name Gazebo), is an Italian musician. He has a legend status among the fans of the "italo-disco" music style, a variation of 1980s eurodance (also known as eurodisco).

  • A roofed structure that offers an open view of the surrounding area, typically used for relaxation or entertainment

  • Adorn, cover, or wrap (someone or something) loosely with folds of cloth

  • Let (oneself or a part of one's body) rest somewhere in a casual or relaxed way

  • (drape) arrange in a particular way; "drape a cloth"

  • (drape) the manner in which fabric hangs or falls; "she adjusted the drape of her skirt"

  • Arrange (cloth or clothing) loosely or casually on or around something

  • (drape) curtain: hanging cloth used as a blind (especially for a window)

Yay, they finally arrived! This is one of the professional photos I had taken of my entry at the "That Takes The Cake Sugar Art Show & Cake Competition" in Austin, Texas this past February. This cake took second place in the Adult Intermediate, Novelty Tiered category.

I wanted to try things on this cake that I previously had not done. This was my first attempt at string/extension work, architectural structure, mold making and a floating border. All in all, I think it turned out really well:) The judges thought that my colors were great and the work was very clean. Unfortunately they didn't offer much more than that, so I'm not sure where this cake could have been improved upon. I will say that I was totally insane tor attempting to do that much piping on one cake! My hands were cramped for a week...LOL!

This view offers a look inside the Indian style, garden gazebo. The original plan was to have a mattress, throw pillows, hanging drapes (to cover the pillars) and a chandelier. The pillows I made got left at home:( I never had time to make the drapes and I couldn't find a small, battery operated LED to save my life!...But the mattress turned out great:)

Monmouth Plantation

Monmouth Plantation

Monmouth Plantation was built by John Hankinson in 1818 and General John A. Quitman purchased the plantation eight years later. Quitman was a hero of the Mexican War and also served as the first governor of Mississippi. Although he was originally from New York, Quitman was a strong advocate of secession. He died before the eruption of the War Between the States. When Natchez was occupied by Northern troops they remembered Quitman’s sympathies and treated Monmouth roughly. His daughters were forced to pledge loyalty to the Union in order to save Monmouth from destruction. The estate remained in Quitman’s family for almost a century, until just after his daughter Rose died in 1914.

The current owners of Monmouth, Ron and Lani Riches, have restored the plantation to its antebellum glory. Visitors see not only the mansion, but also the equally impressive 26 acres of magnificently landscaped grounds, dominated by Southern Live Oaks, draped with Spanish Moss and bejeweled with ponds, statuary and gazebos.
