National Ice Cream Day - July 18th

I am so in love with ice cream! So, today I'm really a happy lady...why? It's National Ice Cream Day! Yesterday, I ran out to buy Cookies and Cream (my son's favorite) and whipped cream in preparation for today. I try not to keep ice ceam in the house - it's just too tempting. Today, it's guilt free - yippee!

In 1984 President Ronald Reagan proclaimed July as National Ice Cream month. He also established National Ice Cream Day as the third Sunday in the month.

In keeping with the jewelry niche, the photo of the ice cream is a lampwork bead. This bead was designed and created by Christina Catherine of . A talented glass artist also selling her lampwork beads on ebay. In the past my jewelry featured some of her beads. Lampwork beads are a favorite of mine to use. Each bead is truly unique, made with a torch then put in a kiln. I have made lampwork beads but most of the time I find myself falling in love with other artist's work. Go check out CCGlassArt with a bowl of ice cream today! My favorite flavor by the way is Butter Pecan...what's yours?


  1. I did not know this! What a great excuse to go out for ice cream tonight!!! My favorite is mint chocolate chip.

  2. Hi Miss Val! I've never tasted mint chocolate chip - sounds good. I could eat ice cream everyday.

  3. I didn't know there was an ice cream day! My husband will be so happy to hear about that... except that he missed it!!!!
