My friend Anne will not drink coffee or tea from a cup or even a decently sized mug. So everyone in my book group has a special “Anne cup.” In my home, it’s a speckled blue and white sponge-painted number I made especially for her in one of the Make Your Own Pottery-type places that have sprung up for the glazing pleasures of kids of all ages.


GGB Attends the Fancy Food Show and the International Gift Fair

We have certainly been busy this summer, attending Food and Gift Shows!  Each time I would pick up Jill and Tammy (before sunrise!) for our NY Trips, it would be like “Trains, Planes and Automobiles”; even though we never even got on a plane.  I am just thankful that Tammy drove, so Jill and I could review notes.  What is the most important thing to remember when packing for a Food or Gift Show?  Only bring what you can carry!
