    Wear Green or Get Pinched?

    st patricks day 2017

    St. Patrick’s Day Pinch? While we won’t pinch you if don’t wear green when you come by the store today, we invite you to check out some of our wonderful “Tipsy” Tumblers handcrafted by Asheville glass blower Terri Sigler.

    Okay, we admit it you might not NEED any glassware but once you see these beautiful hand blown tumblers, you are sure to want them.

    They made a great thank-you gift idea for you to take along if you are heading out this evening for a St. Paddy’s Day party with a special  someone.

    Not to mention, if you are hosting your own “wear green or get pinched” celebration this weekend, nothing makes a mini-bar or a party beverage table stand out quite like these super cool tumblers that “rock but never roll” and their companion blown glass pitchers:

    Something about cold winter weather always makes you want to hunker down and hibernate…and EAT!

    Winter time is the worst time if you are on a diet…oops, we mean a new ‘eating plan’. This is why we are delighting in sharing one of our favorite pie cookbooks with you, now.

    Yes, PIE. And yes, we are tempting you.

    Imagine, a cold winter night, all safe and warm eating leftover pie with good coffee…YUM! (more…)

    Super Bowl Party Recipe


    Okay, we admit it. This recipe has absolutely nothing to do with the gallery, fine art or handmade crafts.

    Just our gift as one football fan to another. 

    You don’t even have to like football  to like this recipe (but as Southerners we do think that’s a bit odd).

    Still this is a great recipe for those who want a quick and inexpensive Super Bowl dish for the half-time party or whenever. (more…)
