Design Treasures From Across Time and the World STAFF REPORTS Published on Thursday, April 9, 2015 | 11:30 am Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community News More Cool Stuff faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Eclectic, unique, significant, and even, sometimes, a bit extravagant…these are some of the words that best describe the furnishings and accessories housed in Dolores Kroop’s Padua DK Designs. This store is a universe of colors, textures, patterns, and designs…and Kroop invites you in.Want to add a vibrant character to your home? Kroop is more than happy to welcome you into her studio filled with original artwork and artifacts from around the world that will add distinction to your home.We took a look around her studio at just a fraction of her incredible pieces.A rare find yet iconic piece in Southern Californian architecture, an over three-foot-tall Madonna and Child created by Della Robbia.“Della Robbia was an Italian artist who created this form. His pieces cost a fortune and they’re in museums now. This is made in Italy, and it’s probably about as large as you can get it,” says Kroop.The pottery glaze makes this sculpture ideal for the outdoors, which is why these pieces are usually found decorating home’s exteriors or gardens.Strangely adorable is the Glitter Goat, sculpture-meets-painting using glitter mixed with medium created by artist Jackie Jefferies. Colorful (it’s got a blue nose!), textured, and quirky, this painting reflects the artist’s love for goats.“I love them! They’re so playful and crazy! Their personalities are just so out there!”While Jefferies loves to paint animals, she is also known to do portraits of us humans, too.Another showpiece in the studio is the urn depicting polo players from the olden days. “It dates back to Afghanistan. Only they didn’t use balls, they used goat heads,” informs Kroop.Believe it or not, this extremely heavy urn (which can take up to three men to lift, Kroop says) is made from fired clay.The intricate engravings in this vase showcase the exquisite craftsmanship by potters from ceramics company Gladding McBean, famous for their role in the look of Downtown Los Angeles, whose building’s edifices feature pottery from the duo.Art that you can wear is a statement necklace with five layers of gem stones in varying hues of blue. “They’re not on metal wire. They’re on the plastic but they’re all interwoven basically,” says Kroop. “The triangular pieces are double-drilled. They have to be so you can go through the wire and keep it flat.”Another rare find in her store is one of several Ethiopian Crosses, a Coptic Cross. This particular cross features engraved images, making it quite rare and covetable.“They sometimes use coin silver because coin silver has a high percentage of silver compound,” Jeffies explains of these religious pieces. Today, they can be put on pedestals to create a beautiful sculptural piece for your home.While we wandered for an hour and discovered a multitude of incredible items, our story barely touches the surface. If you’re curious about what else Padua DK Designs is hiding, you’ll just have to see for yourself.Padua DK Designs is located at 821 S Raymond #30, Alhambra.

20SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Credit cards often get a bad rap, and deservedly so. They aren’t for everyone, and even the most responsible people can get into trouble if they find themselves amid a layoff or an expensive illness.

Because if you don’t, you may be unaware of the plentiful perks some credit cards offer, and if you aren’t taking advantage of those perks, well, in a way, you’re back to losing money.So check the fine print.

NZ Herald 23 October 2017Family First Comment: Dear UKOnly women can become pregnant.Kind regardsNatureBritain is lobbying the United Nations to start using the term “pregnant people” on the grounds that confining the description to women excludes transgender people.The proposal would change a UN human rights treaty to include protections for transgender pregnancies – where babies are born to transgender men who retained a functioning womb and ovaries.There are only two known UK cases of transgender pregnancy, the Daily Mail reports.The statement comes in Britain’s official submission on proposed amendments to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, to which the UK has been a signatory since 1976.The treaty says a “pregnant woman” must be protected, including not being subject to the death penalty.But in the Foreign Office submission, Britain says the term “pregnant woman” may “exclude transgender people who have given birth”. The suggested alternative is “pregnant people”.READ MORE: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11935922Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Moscow: The president of the football club AS Monaco reappeared here on Saturday, a few days after being charged in a corruption case by the Mediterranean principality’s police.Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev, who has owned AS Monaco since December 2011, was arrested on November 6 and conditionally released on the following day after being questioned within an investigation into alleged corruption and influence peddling regarding a dispute with Geneva art dealer Yves Bouvier.A representative for Rybolovlev told Russian media that the billionaire was now in Moscow and had not been banned from leaving Monaco.The representative declined to comment on how long Rybolovlev would stay in the Russian capital and if he planned to return to Monaco.On November 7, AS Monaco dismissed the accusations filed against its president, stressing that the club “firmly denies defamatory remarks” and insisted that Rybolovlev “did not withdraw one euro” from the accounts of the French club following the transfer of France forward Kylian Mbappe to Paris Saint-Germain.French media outlets reported a few days ago that the case was still open and could yet lead to new charges, despite the Russian tycoon’s release from custody.The French club said that it was considering taking legal procedures to assert Rybolovlev’s rights.”Each season since his arrival, the club has regularly suffered financial losses. Dmitry Rybolovlev has, whenever necessary and in the interest of the club, played his role as shareholder and compensated for the deficits,” the Ligue 1 side said at the time in a press release on its official website.

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC) – Justin Greaves struck a maiden first class hundred to help prop up Barbados Pride on the opening day of their final round game in the Regional four-day championship against Jamaica Scorpions.Sent in at Kensington Oval, Pride were in danger of collapse at 98 for five before Greaves arrived to pummel an attractive unbeaten 104 which propelled the hosts to 297 for six at the close here Saturday.Kenroy Williams chipped in with a career-best 82 while opener Kyle Corbin added 51 and West Indies one-day player Ashley Nurse, 33 not out.Seamer Derval Green (2-36) and left-arm spinner Dennis Bulli (2-86) both finished with two wickets apiece.Fielding a weakened side with most of their first team players on West Indies duty, Pride endured a rocky start as they lost several early wickets.Left-hander Anthony Alleyne perished for one with the score on 25 in the fifth over of the morning, edging a defenisve prod at fast bowler Jerome Taylor to Jermaine Blackwood at second slip.One-day batsman Jonathan Carter edged a drive at Green and was taken behind for 10 at 43 for two on the stroke of the first hour and soon afterward, Ryan Wiggins on debut was caught at slip by Blackwood off left-arm spinner Fabian Allen for one at 50 for three.Kevin Stoute fell for 11 and Corbin, after facing 96 balls and striking six fours, was caught at leg slip by Blackwood off Bulli.With Pride in turmoil, Greaves came to the fore, anchoring two critical partnerships to turn the innings around. He added 124 for the sixth wicket with Williams and 75 with Nurse in an unbroken seventh wicket stand.The 23-year-old, better known for his right-arm pace, faced 182 balls in just over 3-1/2 hours at the crease and counted eight fours.Williams, meanwhile, struck eight fours in a knock spanning 155 deliveries in just under three hours at the crease.When Bulli had him caught at square leg in the first hour after tea, Nurse entered to further frustrated Scorpions, ensuring that Greaves also went past three figures for the first time in 10 first class matches.PRIDE 1st inningsK Corbin c Blackwood b Bulli 51A Alleyne c Blackwood b Taylor 1J Carter c wkp Thomas b Green 10R Wiggins c Blackwood b Allen 1*K Stoute c Blackwood b Green 11K Williams c Griffith b Bulli 82J Greaves not out 104A Nurse not out 33Extras (b1, lb3) 4TOTAL (6 wkts, 97 overs) 297Fall of wickets: 1-25, 2-43, 3-50, 4-65, 5-98, 6-222.To bat: +M.
