    'We don't want people like that.' Controversial comments at Boston dispensary hearing
    Lashing out at women with breast cancer, veterans with PTSD -- this is not all of what a man had to say during a debate on proposed medical marijuana dispensary in Boston.

This illustration of a medicinal plant can be seen in a manuscript in the Tapestry Room. While Isabella did travel to the Middle East, and it’s possible that this is why the work appealed to her, the manuscript was purchased from a New York dealer with the help of Isabella’s friends Bernard Berenson and Denman Waldo Ross. Image: Abdallah ibn al-Fadl, Verbena Recta and Verbena Supina, 1224, ink and watercolor on paper.

Holiday Wreaths 2017 – Glamorous Glitz

Our third accent choice for this year’s fully decorated wreath orders is the newly minted “Glamorous Glitz.” For years we have been known for our use of glorious natural materials, specifically pine cones, grasses, seed pods, and unusual dried flowers and twigs. These are still very popular, but an explosion of sparkly accents have caught our eye in recent seasons, and we began using them on wreaths destined for our own homes. We were afraid to send out such outrageous designs to unsuspecting customers. However, we began publicizing them on our Wreath of the Day website feature, which runs from shortly after Wreath Week through New Year’s Day, and the feedback was quick and clear – some of you out there (and you know who you are) want glitter and shine.  So this year, for the first time, you may specify Glamorous Glitz as a design option. Order soon at http://www.gardenclubbackbay.org/shop/

In Isabella’s day, the Raphael Room had stunning hangings on either side of the fireplace, with detailed appliques, rich velvet background, and an estimated 40,000 sequins. Today our textile conservators are recreating these hangings with hand-stitched pieces that will be quilted together to create the final work!
