‘Tis the Season

For shopping, of course!

Two days until Thanksgiving and just three until the panic ensues and everyone realizes there’s just 26 days until Christmas!  To help you stave off the panic here are two local events I’d highly recommend; one east and one west!  Cheers!!


Pop Up Shaker, Shaker Heights, Ohio

Shoppers will be delighted by the unique gifts and DIY craft workshops from more than a dozen craft vendors curated by Cleveland Craft Connection, set up in a space decorated for the season at Lucy’s Sweet Surrender.  Different vendors will be featured every week!

Taste buds will be tickled by the offerings from Cleveland Culinary Launch and Kitchen, which will transform the café space in Juma Gallery, Shaker location, into a food marketplace featuring food demonstrations and edible treats for purchase.

To further enhance the shopping experience, Shop the Window will fill a vacant storefront between Lucy’s and Juma Gallery with gifts curated by Upcycle St. Clair,including some created by Shaker residents and artists. With a QR scanner downloaded for free on a smartphone, shoppers can stroll by and purchase a gift at any time just by scanning the code.

Sum of Parts

What is an outfit, really, but the sum of its parts?  When I get dressed each day a lot of factors go into what I drape on my body including my mood, the weather, if I’ll need to wear the outfit from sunup to sundown and the story I want to tell to strangers that day; can be overwhelming at times.  This day I knew what I put on that morning would need to carry me through until the evening.  The heat predicted for the day demanded my hair to be tucked behind my ears, my feet needed to breath and my clothes had to be flowing; everything comfortable in its own way.

Cleveland’s weather is starting its menopausal swing into fall; some days it’s in the 60’s and the next day in the mid 80’s. I suppose it’s better to ease into the crisp fall air rather than mother nature simply flipping a switch.

Enjoy the changes occurring in your area of the world as the seasons transition; they always seem to slip by too quickly.

Thank you for stopping by, Cheers! -Penny
