Unzipping the secrets of the infamous "Boner Bridge"
Boldt Castle, New York. At the turn-of-the-century, millionaire George C. Boldt, set out to build a full size Rhineland castle in Alexandria Bay, on picturesque Heart Island. The grandiose structure was to be a display of his love for his wife, Louise. After she died suddenly, the castle and various stone structures were left to the mercy of the wind, rain, ice, snow and vandals, for 73 years. This is one of the outlying buildings, now restored, as is the castle itself.
I love this beautiful fall centerpiece that utilizes items many of us may already have around our home: candles, wood tray, chunky candle holders, a pitcher and dried floral items. Just be sure to mix in fall colors and add a little contrast (like the "white" pitcher) to make this arrangement pop.
