Morning Cleveland. A cute rain coat, some sassy wellies and perhaps a bubble-like umbrella should make this weeks forecast of rain, rain, and more rain a tiny bit more fabulous.
Again, another great week in our dear city, including this Thursday’s 16th Annual Market Under Glass event. Filled with unlimited food and drink, this event is the largest fundraiser for Harvest for Hunger.
I went last year (I passed out adorable apps made by Three Birds) and the fundraiser was more fun than I could have ever imagined. Tons of people, great food, decadent desserts…it was over the top amazing. Everyone should get their ticket and meet me there this year!
Speaking of tickets, I have a pair to give one lucky winner (tomorrow…TUESDAY) valued at $170 for the pair. To win, leave me your name and email, winner will be drawn at random.

Hello Lovers of CLEV!
How was your weekend? Mine was sorta quiet but really nice. Sometimes, isn’t it nice to just slow down, stay at home and enjoy the downtime of a relaxed weekend? I think so.
Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t stay in ALL weekend…I had attended a kick off weekend for the Junior League of Cleveland Members.
This amazing group for women always inspire me to give back, strive for better and look to the future, very poignant to living in Cleveland, don’t you think? If you are interested in learning more about the JLC, they are having an open forum, info session next Saturday morning at Joseph Beth booksellers for more information call 216.231.6300. I also enjoyed a peach pizza at Players
and spent Sunday with fellow blogger Allison
& pal Shannon
wandering around Chargin Falls…a WONDERFUL weekend!

I received this press release, and although I don’t usually just report the information, I am returning from a long work trip and must get you-the readers some great around town happenings…so here goes it!!!!
The Market Avenue Wine Bar in Ohio City will host jewelry artists red i jewelry, Gai Russo and Deborah Woolfork for a stylish event that puts as much emphasis in doing good as looking good.
The three highly regarded artists, each of whom have a large following for their hand-crafted jewelry, will be launching their fall collections during the event, scheduled from 6pm to 10pm
Throughout the evening, raffle tickets will be sold for a grand prize, a grouping of three necklaces, one from each artist, all of which were specially designed to layer with one another (a $350 value). Ticket prices are $5, or three for $10. The drawing is at 10pm. One hundred percent of the raffle proceeds will be donated to the Cleveland Animal Protective League, with the specific intent to purchase spay and neuter supplies for its animal welfare clinic.
“It’s a win-win situation,” says Susan Scaparotti of red i jewelry. “A summer night of drinking great wine, buying great jewelry and donating to a great cause.”
