We visited the Christopher Reis Studio in Tunkhannock, PA this weekend. It was an amazing working studio for what can best be described (at least by me) as lead crystal sculpture. The artists there were very gracious and showed us the process and then the final products, some of which are 3+ feet high (and sell for $100,000+!). We won’t be displaying any of them at our house, but it was a very interesting visit!
Saturday we drove to Binghamton, NY – mostly to check out the Home Depot (always good locate the closest one of those!), but also to try a Spiedie Sandwich – a Binghamton delicacy. We checked out a local tavern that was in our Road Food book, and did our own taste test. It’s a pretty simple sandwich, but very good.
Since I haven’t been cooking lately (meals are graciously and deliciously provided here), I’ve set up the sewing machine on our table and have been catching up on loads of sewing projects. It’s felt good to wrap up some UFOs, and to also begin some new ones! I’m on a roll now – I may never give up the table ;).
So it was a good weekend. A little culture, a little shopping, a little work, a little play.
Hope yours was a good one too!
