Ok, I have to vent. I don't do this very often on the blog but it's one of those days. We went to the Pittsburgh Cooking and Food show over the weekend. It was horrible! Absolutely horrible! We had hoped for cooking demos, samples of gourmet food, and possibly to see a famous chef or two. That was not the case at all. It was packed and I felt like we were cattle being herded around. They had samples of popcorn where you had to go up and hold out your hand while the lady poured a few pieces in your hands. One lady had a bowl of chocolate goodies that she was letting everyone pass by stick their hands into and then she offered some to my nine year old. Hello, ever heard of H1N1????? And that was the case for so many other booths. Why don't you just give me a cookie that has been dropped on the floor and coughed on. But what I don't get is why people were standing in this huge crowd waiting for these samples. Yes, we paid like $15 each to get in and maybe they felt they had to get there money's worth but come on. Oh, and a good portion of the booths had nothing to do with food at all like one guy selling windows and another selling make-up and Silpada. What? What are you doing at a cooking show???? It was a complete joke.
Alright, I feel better now. Moving on. The "Playing Games" earrings up in the right hand corner are the spotlight item this week. 10% off for this week only in the Bei Mondi shop bringing them from $22.99 to $20.69!
And here's one I made recently with wire wrapped multicolored pearls. Lots of pastels in greens, pinks, grays, and even a purple. Finished off with a large lotus flower charm that has been hammered for more texture. Delicate and pretty! This will go into the Bei Mondi Etsy shop today.
Sorry to vent and leave but there's lots of projects to get moving on so I'd better be going. Enjoy the nice November day! :)
