We went to the Libbey Glass Outlet again (love that place!!) in Toledo. What a great way to start the month!!
There are really good deals in glassware here. If you are having a party or any type of get together -- this is a great place to get some bargain glassware. Especially if it is something that you don't use often - like martini glasses, etc. -
The clearance area -
I did a prior post that I thought these would be great to hold dish soap on your kitchen counter -
Here I am resting while the others are paying for their items -
I was very good - I just bought the 3 pitchers that I beaded for my daughter's tea (in a prior post), some really cheap silverware to bead, and these irish coffee glasses (I'll use them for other drinks, too) to use for St. Patrick's Day -
I love to look for holiday glasses here. You never know what holiday you will find!! Afterwards we stopped at Tony Packo's (one of their locations is just a block away) and I ordered the same as last time -
Ice cream on the way home -
A few weeks later I went with my friends to the Duct Tape Festival in Avon. The parade was absolutely the neatest thing -
Miss America was even there -
Many of the parade units had items made with duct tape -
After the parade - we enjoyed french fries --
and nachos --
On the way out I saw a duct tape Brutus Buckeye -
We stopped at Toft's for ice cream on the way home (can you see a pattern here?) -
I was busy in June & July with my grandsons' baseball games. Youngest grandson in the red -
Oldest grandson in the blue -
I have also been getting my Fall Notebook in order. I will be doing a post on that soon. I have it organized, but I am still printing some ideas or recipes that I have been collecting online during the past year. This is what it looks like right now -
The papers laying on top were "ideas" just printed today. All the 'tried and true' decor/recipes are in the plastic sleeves and the papers in the back are possible "ideas" I might try.
Let's see -- what do I hope to accomplish or do in the next month?? I hope to go to another Festival, get my Christmas notebook going, and - maybe - cross stitch a towel or two!
This is how Mr. Cardigan and Lucy looked last night waiting for the pizza to be delivered -
