Whew! What a delightfully FUN and very busy weekend! If you've read previous posts on my blog you'll recognize this FAB place! I went there on saturday with my dear friends Karen, Kathy, and Lisa.
Karen had never been to one of my favorite places, the Offray Ribbon Outlet in Hagerstown, Maryland! She had a grand time rummaging through the bins and bins of ribbon. Her shopping basket was brimming over as much as her excitement at being here!
Kathy's lovely manicure and bling matched the wonderful jewel tones and brilliant hues of the ribbon in the grosgrain bins! Just imagine, 25 yards for $5.00!
Lisa, an avid scrapbooker, filled TWO baskets with lots of bows and ribbons she'll use for gifts. She also bought shopping bags crammed with spools of ribbon for her daughters to play with for 25 cents A BAG!
And then there's my basket. Since I have quite a few spools of grosgrain ribbon from my previous trips to the Offray Ribbon Outlet, I took swatches and taped them to a card. I didn't want to get the same colors when I already have yards and yards! It was a great day with good friends!
On Sunday, I went with hubby, son, and father-in-law to a VERY special event in Washington, DC. Now, the event itself may not be of intrest to you all, my blogland friends, but I decided to look at it in an artful way. See if you can guess where we were on Sunday, March 30th. I'll give you a few visual and verbal hints:
Yummy colors! But this was pretty much the only pink and baby blue at this event.
Are you getting any ideas yet?
"W" stands for "where could they be?"
We were outside in a chilly 47 degrees, as my son's gloved hands attest.
These friendly fellows made me the BEST turkey burger I ever had! When they aren't working at this event, you can find them here at this Washington, DC institution.
This piece of a mural should help you come close if you haven't guessed already.
Such an event like this needs to be on national television!
Mrs. Bodell was a very inspired songtress back in the day. This event, which had a lot more attendees than in this print, would've caused her to write something with more of a contemporary beat.
You must know by now...
...That we attended a very special baseball game...
It was so special that the rather blurry gent on the pitcher's mound throwing out the first pitch just happens to be the President of The United States. (This pic was taken by hubby who was so excited to be at the opening day game he was shaking.)
So here you see, Washington, DC has a brand new ballpark called Nationals Park (until some corporation decides to ante up a lot o' cash to have it named after them). This new stadium is beautiful! I am certain I'll be going back with hubby who is a huge baseball fan. BTW, The Nationals won by a grand slam homerun. I understand that is a very good thing. But what do I know? I just came to take pictures of cotton candy--yum!
Have a lovely monday!~~~XXOO, Beth
