The Hudson River Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society is pleased to sponsor its annual classic boat show at the Hudson River Maritime Museum on historic Rondout Creek in Kingston, on Saturday, August 18, 2018 from 10 am to 4pm. Boats arrive on Friday and there will be a parade of classics on Saturday at 4 pm, weather permitting.

The featured boat at this year’s Antique and Classic Boat Show is the custom built mahogany and teak 65-foot trawler, the Francis Marion. Designed by Walter J McInnis of Eldredge-McInnis and built in 1963, the Francis Marion was for many years on display at Mystic Seaport before moving to her new home port in Albany.

In addition to dock-side activities, the Hudson River Maritime Museum will hold a dedication ceremony at 2 p.m. in the East Gallery as museum staff unveil the bell of the Cornell Steamboat Company Perseverance.
The Hudson River Maritime Museum was pleased recently to acquire the bell from the Cornell Steamboat Company tugboat Perseverance. The bell features the name of the vessel engraved on it, and the date, 1919, that the tug was built. The Perseverance was one of nearly one hundred tugs and towboats that Cornell owned and operated on the Hudson River during the period 1837 to 1964. Cornell’s headquarters were right next to where the Maritime Museum is located on the Rondout Creek in Kingston.

THREE TIPS FOR STYLING AN ENTRYWAY

2018-07-31_11-26-37

via A Beautiful Mess – We’re still hard at work on our studio house—one mini space at a time. This week we completed two small spaces (double yay!), and today we’re teaming up with Martha Stewart Living at The Home Depot to share a few tips for styling an entry space.

But first, I must confess. I’m the worst at mini spaces. You know the ones. Too small to be a room, but still in need of decor and organization. I put them off and eventually get used to their half-finished status. They’re my blind spot.

But not this time! This time things are different. And you know what? I’m loving it. Our new entry space is inviting and organized. Since it’s the first thing we see when we walk through those doors every morning, I think of this space as our friendliest spot in the house, always waving “hell-oo-ooo!”

CREATING A LIBRARY IN YOUR APARTMENT

Just because you live in small space doesn’t mean you should have to be reading everything on Kindle. If you’re a true bibliophile, you probably leave dozens (or hundreds) of books lying out all around your home. Instead of shoving them under the bed or trying to get your mom to store them for you, you should figure out how to use your books to add color and beauty to your apartment. So how you can display them without looking like you’re on an episode of “Hoarders?” Here are the best ways to incorporate a library into any small space:

USE BOOKSHELVES AS DIVIDERS

If you live in a studio apartment or need to divide a single room into multiple sections, consider investing in a pair of large, open bookshelves. You’ll be able to use them to split up the room without actually enclosing it or having to hang anything from the ceiling. A couple of bookcases can make up the wall of a makeshift bedroom while showing all your titles off to guests. Should you ever feel like revamping your living space, you can reposition the shelves to create an entirely new layout.

DISPLAY BOOKS IN A HALLWAY

Too often, small apartment owners under-utilize their hallways. Get rid of the dead space by hanging up a few shelves and displaying some books along the hall. You’ll be using your living area to its full potential and make some DIY book art in the process. Find out how much weight your shelves will be able to bear before putting too many books on them.

TURN A CLOSET INTO A LIBRARY

If you happen to have an unused closet in your apartment or would be willing to store your clothes and other belongings elsewhere, you could create a mini-library. If you’re lucky enough to have a walk-in closet, put a chair or a bean bag in there and turn it into a full-fledged reading room. Hang up some lights or plug in a few lamps to complete this ultimate bookworm oasis. Continue Reading
