Faith Church's Pack-the-Packs
On Saturday August 16, 2014, from 10:00am to Noon, Faith & Friends Faith United Presbyterian church in Pen Argyl will be accepting donations of school supplies at Ace Hardware in Washington Township to fill backpacks
Faith Church’s mission group, Faith & Friends, has raised the funds necessary to purchase 36 backpacks for school age children. Pastor Ruth Ann Christopher said that Families First, which serves the Pen Argyl school district, would like all 36 packs for the start of school classes.
But what is an empty backpack without any needed school supplies? Faith & Friends enlisted assistance from church member Pat Zavacky, a former First Grade teacher, in assembling a school supply list.
According to Mrs. Zavacky, the following items would be needed during the school year and should be included in any backpack: pens, pencils, rulers, erasers, 3 ring binders, scissors, glue sticks, highlighters, loose leaf paper, spiral notebooks, tape, pocket folders, markers, and a calculator.
We’re asking people and/or organizations to help us collect enough supplies to “Pack the Packs” and complete them. So, when out shopping, would you think of the children who need school supplies and make a purchase for donation on Saturday? Together, we can help our children get off to a good start in the new school year.
They hope to see you on Saturday, August 16, at Ace Hardware located at 438 Blue Valley Drive. The community is invited to go to www.faithunited.net to learn more about the event and for directions to the site. Information is also available on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/faithunited.penargyl.

Popular home decor style - a blend of old and new
(BPT) - It can be hard to keep up with the latest changes in decorating styles for the home. But the latest trend might actually make it easy for you to have a stylish house, especially if you’ve kept some family treasures around.Mixing traditional and contemporary decor within a home can give your spaces a warm, yet up-to-date, feel. Keeping those traditional accents, furniture pieces or even wallpaper in your home and blending them with contemporary elements that have clean lines or bright colors can create a relaxed and attention-grabbing look. You can incorporate this style in any room of the home, and it allows you to display that mirror your grandma had in her bathroom, or to bring new life and energy to the aged marble countertops in your kitchen.
Try these tips to help get the most out the old, while bringing a new look to your home:
* Accent with white – One great way to give a room a contemporary balance is to accent with white. The trim, molding, doors and even decorative linens you use can bring new energy to a furniture item or heirloom piece you’ve had in your family for years. Blending the soft wood tones of older furniture or dark wood floors with cool and fresh white accents will make the room vibrant. If it’s your kitchen that’s sporting the contemporary white color, add Danze faucets in stainless steel finishes that showcase a more traditional décor to balance the overall feel.
* Choose your finishes with intention – The finish you choose for your fixtures and faucets will have a significant impact on the look and feel of the room. For example, a white sink or toilet fits well when adding contemporary elements versus biscuit, which will bring a more subdued, traditional flavor. Selecting faucets with a bronze finish could add a noticeable and beautiful deviation to an otherwise white bathroom decor. The Eastham Collection by Danze has a very architectural look that works well in either traditional or contemporary environments. But changing its finish can alter the impact it brings the room.
* Add little touches – An old six-paned window with cracked and worn wood can become a frame for family photos. Wood from an old barn can be used for a coffee table or fireplace mantel. Mix up the chairs around your dining room table by blending both modern and contemporary styles. These little changes in a room’s decor might not be immediately obvious, but as visitors look around the room, they’ll notice the special touches you’ve made by mixing two distinctive styles.
* Incorporate a couple focal pieces – If the shell of your room has a contemporary look, adding a few traditional elements and conversation pieces into the room can create a stunning look. An antique lamp, an old trunk that becomes a side table or a church pew in an entryway can all be attention-getting additions. On the flipside, if your home features traditional wooden floors that have aged beautifully, let the floor take center stage with simple, modern decorations.
Mixing old and new is a decorating trend in today’s home decor, and there are benefits galore to exploring its flavor. You’ll have a beautiful home today, with flexibility to alter it in the years to come. If, in five years, you decide going contemporary is the path for you, simply switch out that bronze faucet with chrome or replace the antique accent pieces in the living room. Regardless of the way you mix traditional and contemporary elements, you can be assured that it won’t overwhelm your guests. Instead, they’ll enjoy experiencing your creativity and the breath of fresh air you brought to your home.

A floating hotel built in the shape of a snowflake is being developed in a bid to give visitors the best way to see the Northern Lights.
Dutch Docklands are currently working on the 5-star hotel in Norway, which they say will be located in one of the most beautiful natural surroundings on earth.
The design of the so-called Krystall hotel is based on an ice crystal which "blends-in naturally with the winter environment" between the most beautiful fjords.
The hotel will have a diameter of 115 yards and feature 86 rooms, conference facilities, spa and wellness areas.
Touted as being completely self-supporting and as sustainable as possible, the Krystall will only be reachable by boat.
Work on the hotel is scheduled to start in mid-2015, and the plan is for it to open by Christmas 2016, most likely in the Tromso region of Norway.
It has been designed by Koen Olthuis, a Dutch architect and founder of Waterstudio, specialists in floating structures.
He said: "Key for the design was that it should be a simple glass building that would allow the guests to get the most view on the Northern Lights from their beds.
"The Northern Lights is the main feature for the hotel. Without the light we would not have chosen this location on water. It is far enough away from disturbing city lights.
"Because it is floating we do not have any impact on that location. We call it a scarless development."
