Things To DO - Before End of September

My friend from the Blog - Salton send the following:

L'etc c"est fini,as the french say, so end summer on a high note. Make a REALLY BIG DEAL out of the last cookout of summer. Service your favorite summer recipes with a final flourish. BLENKO GLASS for tableware of course. Linger in the twilight, watch the sun go down, and bid summer a fond adieu.
Stock up on your own school supplies. They';re on sale this month. Get your own pads, notebooks scissors, tape and crayons. Send away( to Lillian Vernon or Miles Kimball) and get pencils imprinted with your name on them. OR BLENKO COLLECTOR and your name.

Make taffy apples. OR GO TO BLENKO GLASS AND buy APPLES for your teachers, your self and to put back for gifts. They're on SALE now.

Experiment with different types of Popcorn Serve in the Very Large BLENKO GLASS Bowls also on sale now.

Celebrate the autumn equinox with a festive dinner of home style cooking. Bring out the Candles, the good BLENKO for flowers, and fruits and other tableware - if you don't HAVE BLENKO go to http://www.blenkoglass.com/ or visit Milton, W.Va. factory.

Start to assemble your Halloween Treats for the Office - BLENKO GLASS has pumpkins in all colors and styles, if you SHOP NOW you'll get the best selections.

Start making your Christmas list this month so you won't be frantic in December. Go to http://www.blenkoglass.com/ with your list, go to http://www.blenkoproject.org/ for ideas of what to buy.

If you have CHILDREN this is the time to have them decide on their costumes. Then start shopping or go to the fabric store and start the construction. TAKE THE CHILDREN to Blenko for pumpkins, gourds and other Fall Treats. . .also to feed the ducks one last time before the pond starts to freeze over.

Take a walk under the huntress moon.

Look at Farmer's market for dried flowers to create your own bouquet. Creating your own bouquet on a September Sunday afternoon is a relaxing restoration that reminds you all winter long that beauty is simply abundant if you look for it. USE BLENKO GLASS vase to house your creation.

Don't wait for OPRAH to say BUY BLENKO! Be ahead of the curve.

The pumpkins will soon be in the Blenko front garden.
A 'work party' is being planned for the 24th to wash the brick and glass thats in the garden and to prepare for fall/winter. email theblenkoproject@aol.com if you can help - everyone is welcome.

To date no one from O has contacted me (laugh).
