Orange's Blog

Orange L. W. Howell, a spirited person of 153 years who occasionally moonlights in luxury retail, lives passionately in New York City's East Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

Orange L. W. Howell is my name and @ 151 years old I can assure you I speak with opinions in their various shades of gray. Black n' white thinking is fools talk, easily palatable for most folks, but then most don't live past 90 before they can't think right. About the name +color, "William & Mary of Orange" I was born in 1861 the year the Civil War began. Eighth generation American, Quaker, Hoosier, Welsh, originally a Farmer. I grew up Henry County, Blountsville, Indiana. Parents were Hilary Howell and Fanny Bedwell-Howell, and my first lovely wife was named Ella Chamness, we had four children. Everyone is in the ground.

Thanks to my old friends at Perfect Circle, those Teetor inventors and Wilbur Wright  who was always coming back to his birth place...P.C. created a special invention for me, knowing I was a seventh son of a seventh son...So I can go forever into the future flying, just can't take me back, only forward. My stomping grounds are the streets of Manhattan, New York City... especially the East Village. The neighborhood spirit is most like the home in my heart or at least it was in the 80's...♥

D.A.R. Aspen Snowflake 2012

Orange HOWELL

The Daughters of the American Revolution Aspen Snowflake 2012 will be available for the Continental Congress annual meeting for Daughters of the American Revolution.  The Daughters of the American Revolution Continental Congress is a time-honored tradition that has been held in Washington, D.C. as the annual national meeting of the DAR membership since the organization’s founding in 1890. Not to be confused with the United States “Congress,” the DAR national meeting is named after the original Continental Congress which governed the American Colonies during the Revolutionary War.

The D.A.R. Snowflake Ornament celebrates America’s Founding Mothers, and Orange HOWELL’s owner, Paula Zanger’s own family heritage. Orange Howell is the given name of her great, great grandfather, married to Fanny Bedwell.  Paula is a direct descendant (on her Mother’s side), of  Mayflower passenger Elizabeth Tilley-Howland and John Howland a passenger and signer of Mayflower Compact who helped found Plymouth Colony, Robert Bedwell one of the six delegates to the first meeting of the Pennsylvania Assembly in Philadelphia in 1703, and American Revolutionary Patriots, Benjamin Barnard and Barachiah Macy.

Those in attendance include over 3,000 delegates representing the membership of 165,000 Daughters from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and many international chapters. Since its founding, the DAR has promoted historic preservation, education and patriotism and those objectives are reflected in all of the events of DAR Continental Congress.

Aspen Crystal Snowflake will be available at Neiman Marcus online, September 2012 and eshop on the Orange HOWELL website.
