Montrose Car Show

I had a great time checking out to the car show in Montrose, California. I got to hang out with some fine folks from the Town Square family and check out the variety of vintage vehicles along with several blocks of the main drag of this foothill community.

Bull’s Eye Glass

Bull’s-Eye Glass now has an outpost in South Pasadena and offers glass fusing and cutting classes throughout the year.

I recently had the opportunity to do a glass platter at one of their evening classes that a past client invited me to attend. Such a break from the every day to work with colorful glass pieces and have them fired in their kilns into shiny usable houseware!

I am planning to go back to try out my skills at glass cutting more complex shapes and possibly making a bowl.

Salvation Army

I do enjoy a thrift store shopping adventure and I also like helping the community. I was thrilled when the education committee of the Pasadena Foothill Association of Realtors invited me to a private tour and luncheon with the Salvation Army of the St. Gabriel Valley. I got to see firsthand the sorting process for items, which are then sold back to the public to raise funds for this charitable organization that focuses on rehabilitating individuals and giving them job skills.
