The Sassy Countess is a blog about historic houses, properties, castles, estates, mansions, homes, land, and lifestyles! Focusing mostly on 18th century, other time periods are also included, such as Regency, Golden Age, Gilded Age, Victorian, American Post and Antebellum, Romantic, Jacksonian, Medieval, Renaissance, Edwardian, New Republic, etc.
So, I only took one photograph from this episode, but I encourage you to watch it.
The above photo is the top portion of a shelving unit the daughter of one of the men made. I believe it is absolutely phenomenal. What a brilliant idea! She took two doors with insets and put in distressed metal, put on a top and had her brother make the metal scroll-work there. This is just a side note to the show, but I think there should have been a show just on this. WOW.
The episode is about the St. Andrews Catholic Church spires. They assisted by removing the copper sheeting and crosses at the very top.
I found this extremely interesting because I have never seen anything like it before. The sheeting was very thin and was placed over wooden frames. Very cool info.
I thought I was going to be upset when one said, "Clowns are bad."
However, within one second the other replied, "Don't take that personally, clowns."
If you don't know, I was a professional clown for over ten years doing parties, but mostly performing at large corporate events and carnivals. So, I get very upset when someone makes a blanket statement. But, I forgive them because of the almost-apology. ;)
I give this episode four tiaras.
