Blog: Pam's Pennypinching With STYLE

Hello There

Monday, March 19, 2012

Back to the blog - forgive me, but I have had problems with allergies & rashes & on top of that a bad cold which seems to be going around- which has left me with bronchitis - arg! So I have been under the weather....

But frugality goes on!  Last week hubby & I plus some friends went out TWO nights in a row!! First we landed last minute tix to a chamber music concert in an art gallery in Beverly Hills. Strings & a marimba! Then we had managed to get tix for The Play of Daniel as presented by the L.A. Opera at the Cathedral of Our Lady Queen of the Angels - We had ordered them back in February! I hadn't yet been to the newish cathedral, so that was interesting - but even though we were early and our seats were in the middle of the cathedral, I was glad that I had brought my vintage opera glasses, so I could read the captions projected up against the backdrop! (I found a silk drawstring bag that had come with some jewelry purchase which I had saved & used it for the opera glasses...That's an idea - protect items in those jewelry bags.

I had promised to GO OUT more this year - & last week was the fruit of that - & did I mention that all the tix were FREE? 

There I was wearing my thrifts hop finery - my Chico's orange jacket one night & my M. Fredric yellow jacket the next - It was nice to take my wardrobe out! (Otherwise I live in my OLD jeans & sweatshirts or t-shirts!)

TIP: Whittle down synthetic plastic corks to fit in the tops of bottle for which you can't find the tops.(I don't know, I always LOSE mine & they have to have tops or the contents will evaporate!) It's an old-fashioned solution - but it works & synthetic corks are easy to trim to size, as they don't crumble the way real corks sometimes do.

Other than that, I have been lying low, trying to get over this @#$% cold!!

Always good to have a raincoat - even in So. California!
