Cataldo Mission




Cataldo Mission





One more shot of this historic mission taken when Spring's bounty was blooming.

"In the early 19th century, the Coeur d'Alene Indians had heard of these powerful "medicine men" in black robes with a book and wanted some of these men for their own tribe. They sent men east to St. Louis, and in 1842 Father Pierre-Jean De Smet responded to the request and came to the area. Fr. Nicholas Point and Br. Charles Duet came and helped to pick a mission location. The first was along the St. Joe River, but was subject to flooding. In 1846, they moved it to the current location.

In 1850, the church was taken over by Antonio Ravalli, who began designing the new mission building. He made sure that the building was constructed by the Indians themselves, so that they could feel part of the church. It was built using the wattle and daub method, and was finished some three years later, without using a single nail.

Though they had few materials to decorate the church, they used ingenious techniques to beautify it. The walls were decorated with fabric bought from the Hudson's Bay Company and hand-painted newspaper that Fr. Ravalli had received in the mail. Tin cans were used to create an idea of chandeliers. Both wooden statues were carved by hand with nothing but a knife. The blue coloring of the interior wood is not paint but a stain created by pressing local huckleberries into the wood.

In time, the mission became an important stop for traders, settlers, and miners taking on the role as a hospitality and supply station. It was also a working port for boats heading up the Coeur d'Alene River."

An interesting place to visit, in any season. I like the History and importance of this Mission, but Love the striking beauty of north Idaho that surrounds it even more.

Happy Weekend!

"He who rejects change is the architect of decay."





Over the weekend I toured many interesting yards on the Austin Yard Art Tour. While some of those yards are over the top, (in some cases more fun to visit & great not live next door to...) there was something to take away from each place I visited. I first was very intrigued by the use of recycled glass in almost every yard I saw. I saw glass crushed, stacked, used in mosaics, bottles holding LED lights, & edging granite pathways. The re-purposing of something so simple really intrigued me. I have collected many French lemonade & soft drink bottles, for what...not certain! During the years we were living in Mexico our curbside recycling company back here decided NOT to recycle glass. I can take my glass elsewhere. How strange that even where we were living in Mexico they were recycling glass. I want to find a place for everything & not recycling my glass is simply not going to do!

I do know that somehow; while I take my garden through the "back home" status, I will make some changes with re-purpose & change in mind. I spent yesterday moving plants, benches, digging & trudging through the mud. It will all serve a purpose as I am the architect of change in my own back yard!
