With many Celtic sights of interest including Fort Adams, St. Mary’s Church, and St. Josephs cemetery, we honor our past and present Irish with a month of fun activities for all.   Come and enjoy what will be a wonderful experience for you and your loved ones with a great get away at the Ivy Lodge Bed and Breakfast.

Nankeen

Handmade Accessories

In 2005, in the back alleys of Shanghai, Anne and Charlie Page, with backgrounds in interior design and historic preservation architecture, stumbled upon a treasure they knew was in danger of extinction.

NankeenTHE FABRIC

Their discovery was an ancient Chinese art form, fabrics using a 3,000 year old paste resist process with origins in the Song Dynasty, in use on the legendary Silk Road and still being created in very limited quantities in the provinces around Shanghai. Stencils are carved by hand in a multitude of historic patterns, through which a mixture of soya bean flour and slaked lime is applied on white, pure cotton, cloth. Once dry, the fabric is dyed in vats of boiling indigo (which grows like a weed in the area), again dried, then scraped clean of the paste to reveal the exquisite blue and white patterns seen in the product. The natural indigo dye ensures the stability of the pattern. Indeed, the fabric improves with the motion of a machine wash and, like your favorite pair of blue jeans, becomes better over time.

THE VISION

With colorful linings inspired by Matisse and unique detailing the Nankeen Collection expresses simple elegance in both women's and men's fashion accessories and products for the home

2013 Christmas in Newport

  
  
  
  

mansion decor

The 43rd annual Christmas in Newport

 Founded in 1971, Christmas in Newport began as a two-week festival that celebrated the noncommercial traditions of the holiday season. Now in its 43rd year, the annual program boasts multiple activities for nearly each day of the December calendar.

In a community collaboration among residents, businesses and the city, only clear bulbs illuminate the scenic harbor and wharfs, the restored colonials of the Point and Historic Hill sections, and the Victorian splendor of Bellevue Avenue.

The lights are meant to simulate candlelight, and are the brainchild of Christmas in Newport founder Ruth Myers, who wished to recapture the candlelit holidays of yester years. With a volunteer base numbering 1500, the non-profit organization, Christmas in Newport, raises thousands of dollars for charity each year. In keeping with the true spirit of the season, any event listed in the annual program must be free of charge or must benefit a non-profit institution or charity.

Experience themed festivals and beautiful seasons…
