blog made in 216 postcard2

So blog posts have been few & far between lately … the reason? I am helping with the MADE in the 216 HOLIDAY SHOPPE, including designing the postcards for the event. (making Pierre & Fifi stand still to pose for their portrait wasn’t easy!) Made in the 216 has been a weekend long even in the past. However, this year ROOM SERVICE is taking over the empty storefront directly next to the brand new Capitol Theater in order to bring a month long shopping experience. Do not miss the kick off party November 6th! Partake in the cocktails, enjoy music from DJ Doc & buy lots of awesome presents for your friends & family! There is an after party at the newly revamped Happy Dog (who’s new hot dog/veggie dog menu is almost too good to be bar food) with live music from The Buried Wires & Filmstrip. Don’t fret if you cannot make it to the kick off party, there will be BYOB parties with live music from local bands each Friday in November at the Holiday Shoppe. And of course, you can buy your awesome hand screened Tshirts, one of a kind jewelry & things you didn’t even know you needed all month long!

A new addition to the family! I found this love-seat at an antique store on Lorain Ave. this weekend. At $100 this was steal, especially because it is in like new condition. Take that hours of searching on Craig’s List! I guess you find the things you need when you stop looking for them.

knife
Don’t let a dull knife get in the way of good cooking. Today Kevin Noon will be sharpening knives at the Tremont Farmers’ Market. Bring your knives, scissors, sheers, and even food processor blades. He will make them like new again using old world techniques. Don’t worry, if kevin is not there, he and Garth Proctor alternate weeks at the market. Also, each freshly sharpened knife comes with a complimentary BAND-AID.

Lincoln Park, on W.14th Street between Starkweather & Kenilworth Ave.

Finally some dinning hall relief! This makes me so happy. I wish they had this when I was attending school, especially since most of the CSU dorms have a kitchen in each suite. I am glad Cleveland State is making it easy for both students who live on campus and busy commuter students to eat healthfully. Thursdays is great day because the West Side Market is closed that day. If you are need of fresh veggies or will be busy over the weekend you can just stop here. If you work downtown this is also a great thing for you too! ($1 parking?!) Thank you CSU!

Fiesta1 round

Fiesta, a line of dinnerware made by the Homer Laughlin China Co., has a rich past and a thriving present. This timeless, sturdy dinnerware is a product of Ohio River Pottery. Its appearance has changed little since its 1936 debut in East Liverpool, Ohio. The signature ringed design graces everything from coffee pots to tumblers, pie plates, soup tureens, and sugar bowls in a rainbow array of colors. Not only can you find a piece of Fiesta ware in just about any antique or vintage store in Cleveland, you can view it on display in the Christmas Story House Museum in Tremont. (Think back to that ivory plate Randy Parker uses to demonstrate how a piggy eats.) Though Fiesta is still readily availble in most department stores, I recomend buying vintage peices or visiting the the Homer Laughlin China Retail Outlet located just over the the Ohio River. Purchasing a box of dishes from the JCPenny housewares’ department just doesn’t give the same thrill.

Picture 6pillow roundup
While searching for fabric I stumbled on these pillows by textile designer, Thomas Paul. They are quirky and yet sophisticated. I love that they can be mixed and matched seamlessly with the other pillows from his line. For inspiration browse his web site and visit the Velocity online boutique to purchase. Sometimes I forget it is possible to completely change the look of a room with different accent pillows. In other words, redecorate in a snap and still have time for a nap.

Leaving work, you know what you have to do, grocery shop, and what you want to do, enjoy the last of the sumer weather. Well, Tuesday evenings in Tremont you can do both! If you haven’t been to the Tremont Farmers’ Market yet, you are missing out. Each week I look forward to seeing what locally grown produce will be there. They have fresh fruit and vegetables, many specialty items and music. Tonight I will be making a spicy thai stir fry with my purchases.
