Boat cloak, circa 1805 although quite faded, it is an extremely rare survival of protective or outdoor clothing from the early part of the 19th century. It is made of a hard wearing, coarse weave green wool and lined with a similar brown wool. The cloak, which is quite voluminous, gathers into a stand or fall collar and fastens with a small Royal Naval button at the neck. by millie

Erzulie’s themes are prosperity, abundance, and love. Her symbol is the color blue. This Haitian love Goddess extends Her beneficent spring like energy whenever we need it, especially when our pockets or hearts are empty. When life gets out of kilter, petitioning Erzulie sets everything back on track, slowly but surely. Blue is Erzulie’s sacred color, and She is sometimes called ‘the loving one’. by marci

Constructed in the 1830s, the Lafontaine House is one of the rare mansions that remains from this era. It was home to one of Canada's most important 19th century politicians, Louis-Hippolyte LaFontaine, who was the first Prime Minister of the united Canadas and a key player in the creation of the country’s democratic institutions. It has been abandoned for the last 15 years. Montreal, Quebec. by Mariya pp
