Fall is here and opening the door to winter!  It's a kind of nesting season for us all.  We bond with family and friends over bonfires and hot cider.

At the Glass Garden, we also have our way of bonding with friends and family.  We have "Girlfriends Night Out" on the 1st Thursday of the month where you can get together and enjoy a cozy night of fun with friends (and meet some new friends too!)  And here's a little secret...guys can come too!

The class includes all the materials needed for the project, as well as wine and sweets.  Our current project is a wind chime and no experience is needed--just a desire to have fun. 

Also...a wine bottle makes a great gift, so if you would like to bring in a favorite empty wine bottle (or any empty bottle) we are able to slump it into a cheese tray! 

I look forward to seeing you over the next quarter and being a part of your fun creations.

Enjoy the upcoming fall colors--nature has the best box of crayons!

Why Do We Say It?



How did a complete failure come to be called a "fiasco"??

The making of a fine Venetian glass bottle is a difficult process-for it must be perfect.  If, in glowing, the slightest flaw is detected the glassblower turns the bottle into a common flask-called in Italian, fiasco.

Fit as a Fiddle  

What is the reason we say someone is 'fit as a fiddle"??

The phase originally was "fit as a fiddler" and referred to the stamina of fiddlers-who could play for a dance all night long without ever getting tired.
