This is a shot looking straight down at a very large paper weight that is part of the Arthur Rubloff Collection at the Chicago Art Institute. "Glass paperweights became popular in the mid-19th century when the establishment of a dependable mail service led to an increase in letter writing and a demand for writing products." This collection is so impressive, I spent almost an hour looking at them all. This one is a Millefiori paperweight which translated from Italian means thousand flowers, in this case it was far more than a thousand!
Eddie Bauer is having their Spring sale with up to 60% off and sweaters starting as low as $19.99. I was able to find a pair of long johns for $29.99 - $34.99, marked down from $49.99 - 54.50 (frankly a product I was hoping to to think about for awhile until it got so very cold here). For the hubby I was able to find a Sueded Jersey Fatigue T-Shirt between $29.99 - $34.99, marked down from $39.99 - $44.50, for me these are a great find since he love them and they are available in a nice variety of colors and tall sizes. Also be sure to check the clearance section with deals up to 70% off their original prices. Plus, while you are at Eddie Bauer, either in store or on line be sure to join their Join Eddie Bauer Friends program, (this is not a credit card) you'll automatically start earning 3% in Rewards toward a Reward certificate for every $1 you spend, no matter where you shop Eddie Bauer.

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday, the weekend is on the way!
Clothes sales are my downfall! I have so many sweaters, I hope it's a mild summer ;). Thank you for sharing! I'll have to go check it out.ReplyDelete
What a pretty paperweight. Almost makes you want to have papers on your desk. I just find a rock or whatever I have around for a paperweight.ReplyDelete
