Hi! My family and I went to Pensacola yesterday to the annual Looking Glass Show at the fairgrounds. I came away with several non-glass goodies and my mother bought a beautiful pale blue Fire King glass roaster.
A lovely green flower filigree brooch. I will have to wear some light colored sweaters or shirts to wear this brooch to work as I usually wear grays, blues, or blacks. I love the delicate look to this brooch and it isn't overpowering in the size either.
Your basic heart shaped brooch. I don't think I have any heart shaped brooches in my collection so I picked this one up at the show. It is perfect as an everyday brooch or something simple to wear on Valentine's Day. It has a fun shape to as well :)
A maple leaf brooch to add to my Fall themed brooches and it is also an older one with a C-clasp on the back, which I love to collect as well.
My last purchase of the day. One of the booths at the show had a majority of glassware, but also a small section devoted to kitchen gadgets. I picked up this tomato slicer made by Tomado in Holland, a company in the 1950s. I can't wait to use this little gadget as my family loves tomatoes!
This morning I have been baking. We stopped by Barnes and Noble yesterday and I purchased a BH&G magazine on fall baking! I am trying their cranberry-orange loaf recipe this morning.
I am also going to try my hand at making a mixed berry jelly recipe that I found in one my sister's old issues of Rachael Ray's magazine. Wish me luck!
Until next time ^____^
