We will discuss current and former craftsmen and designers and how important it is that Blenko and West Virginia glass be appreciated and valued by the younger generation.

Freezing Cold Outside - Suggestions for Staying Warm.

http://www.westvirginiaski.com/, http://www.westvirginia.com/ (travel and recreation)

Other than my friends working at the West Virginia Ski sites, and those who ski each and every weekend. No one is loving this freezing weather.

Ms B loves snow, she plows through the snow with her nose, and dances in the snow. However, the frigid temperatures interfere with her enjoyment of this new snowfall.

How are you staying warm? If you have some free time today, why not drive to Milton, WV. Winter is a good time to visit Milton. The quaint little shops along the main highway all sell glass and other vintage goodies. Business after Christmas is usually slow . . . and they often mark down prices to attract shoppers.

At BlENKO GLASS http://www.blenkoglass.com/, a good number of new items are now being offered at the gift center with a price reduction. Remember to check out the clearance tables. Also pick up a couple water bottles to have in your gift closet. Blenko water bottles are the perfect under $50 gift for most any occasion.

If you don't own Blenko glass mugs, or drinking glasses purchase these also, nothing is nicer than having hot chocolate or a Bloody Mary in a Blenko container on a chilly morning.

Alice sent photos of the glass she received this holiday, no Blenko but many beautiful Made In the USA glass items, her son bought in New York. If you received glass Made In West Virginia consider sending photos and description to theblenkoproject@aol.com the blog.

Make this a great Wednesday!

Now is a good time to ask readers to donate money to Animal Shelters and also to bring in their pets.
Its too cold outside.
Shelters can use food, blankets, and your money.

The photo of a beloved companion dog is excellent for a cold winter day.
Is this dog a maltese?

Staying warm by sending AP a check for $450 per month
and buying wood for fireplace at $100 per truck.
Costly to stay warm.
Perhaps buying a little fluffy white dog would help?
ps my glass is also very cold..
