Home Show-Offs ~ Inexpensive Art

About a month ago Pittsburgh hosted the annual home show.  Ordinarily, as we aren’t technically home-owners (renters unite!) we usually skip it, but we managed to get our hands on some free tickets and figured, why not?

Of all the Gin Joints in This Town… ~ Inexpensive Art

So we’ve all heard the saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Now, go search Pinterest with that phrase.  I’ll wait. Somehow, adding vodka to that became the refrain.  I’m ok with that, I mean lemon drops are tasty.  But that’s not my favorite lemonade treat. While cruising online I came across this super… Continue reading Of all the Gin Joints in This Town… ~ Inexpensive Art
