Window shopping in Skaneateles!

I really have to say, I am pretty darn lucky!

On Facebook, I saw this post for Modern Salon, asking salon owners to do an assignment. I read the requirements, really wanted to do it, then...(as usual) second guessed myself. Thinking..."What would I say? Would I know how to write what I was seeing? Would I sound ridiculous? What if they didn't pick mine?" So, basically I didn't offer to do it. So the girl from Modern Salon emailed me (How'd she know I was considering it? See what I mean, I'm lucky:) and asked me to do it. So with the help of my dear friend, my surrogate sister..the one who holds my hand often - Shelly - we planned a glorious Monday of window shopping...First a coffee though;) a little window shopping, then lunch at the bakery (BEET SALAD TO DIE FOR!)! Hehe, it was a great afternoon!

Here is the article, on my favorite displays at Paris Flea and Skaneateles 300. I hope in the future, I get to do other fun things like this:)

So how would you like to play monopoly, but with Skaneateles landmarks and businesses to land on!?!

The Skaneateles Education Foundation will be publishing a customized version of Monopoly, called “Skanopoly” to raise money for education in our community. Skanopoly will be available in local stores starting in late November. 1000 games will be published and they will be sold for $30.00 each, with all proceeds going to education.

Many local merchants and restaurants have generously sponsored properties on the Board and we thank them for their support. Bijou has a square, it's not Park place or Boardwalk, but it's close!

The photo up above is what will appear in the patron booklet! I can't wait till the games come in, they will make great gifts and I think the 1000 will sell quickly!

If you would like to learn more about the Skaneateles education foundation, please click here or up top at the first mention of the word, I was really pleased to see they had a webpage to browse and learned a little about it!
