This is my second post where an animal felt they couldn’t just stand by and watch, they needed to photobomb me. The first to nab the spotlight was Morty and, as luck would have it, his attire perfectly matched mine.  This time around her name is Lola and no, she’s not a showgirl; sorry, reference to a Barry Manilow song I grew-up with and loved, please don’t hold it against me!  Lola is a very cute, but very hyper, Pom Terrier.  Unlike Morty who was quite docile during the shoot, Lola had more than enough energy to run around, be my shadow and demand some attention before she would decide to just watch from afar; she cracked me up!

We were fortunate to have amazing weather in Cleveland this past weekend which allowed me to, as my summer mantra goes, find a patio and chill; in this case a deck was a perfectly suitable substitute.

I’m still embracing my blouses which I find myself living in during the summer.  Their lightweight and breezy materials help to keep me cool while still feeling girly and looking stylish.  I had originally planned on wearing white denim with this blouse, however the heat of the day forced my hand and so out came structured and patterned shorts; cool all the way around, literally.

In celebration of such amazing weather I decided to whip-up a batch of my famous Red Sangria and boy did it go down easy; with that I leave you with the recipe and a big CHEERS!

Single batch of Penny’s Red Sangria:

  For each bottle, your choice, of red wine* add:

* I prefer to use Merlot, Rioja or Cabernet; I usually make a double batch and, when I do, usually select two different reds to combine!

Made in the 216 Recap

One thing I love to do is support local businesses and artists; Made in the 216 gave me an opportunity to do just that!  The weather last weekend in Cleveland was perfect for this event, and it showed in the sheer number of customers that came out in support of the 216; that’s the Cleveland area code, just in-case you were wondering.

Not far down the street from her everyday storefront my good friend Jennie, owner of Room Service and one of my talented blog photographers, worked tirelessly to make her vision come to life in this pop-up space.  Following are several images which, to me, really convey the amazing selection of goods, the atmosphere and creativity that filled this temporary pop-up store for just three days!  From freshly inked posters, to jams, sculptures ( I am obsessed with the cement cast vintage cameras), jewelry, apparel and stationary there was definitely something to be found for every taste and every budget.

In the event you weren’t able to attend Made in the 216, be sure to head down to W. 25th and check out Room Service which supports and features many of the items pictured below.  While you’re at it, also check out the other fantastic shops and eateries that adorn the street.

p.s. There are a TON of patios along W. 25th; summer is slipping away so get down there and enjoy!  Cheers!
