Throw open your window and let the scenery of clouds and sky enter your room!
In the update of magnificent windows I already said that the ideas behind this project were fallen together in a lovely way. Maybe you notice something similiar in your life but every time I announce that things are working out really nicely and obstacle arises. This time it meant a large part of the embroidery had to be done again and I couldn't find a frame. Both obstacles are removed. This means this week is dedicated to magnificent windows.
This is the oldest picture that I found of the building of which I made a drawing on cloth. In 1887 the brothers Oppenheimer opened the first wholesale provisions warehouse in Vancouver.
This picture is from 1898
The Oppenheimers were a prominent family. The brothers were born in Germany. After the California gold rush they supplied goods to prospectors moving North to the Fraser River and Cariboo gold rush. David Oppenheimer was often called the ‘father’ of Vancouver. He served as Mayor of the city from 1888 to 1891 and he served as the first president of the Vancouver Board of Trade in 1887.
The magnificent windowstory will continue tomorrow but before I say goodbye, I hope you will click here and listen to Steamy windows of Tina Turner because this project is also about music.
Have a lovely day.
