Yep. Mahtomedi, Birchwood Village, Pine Springs, White Bear Lake, Shoreview - all those towns that border I-694 run together and are considered northeast suburbs.

I just had a thought about this - regarding stained glass pieces you find at craft fairs, sometimes the artists have catalogs of different styles they might not be showing that day, and some will take custom orders.

Good idea. I'll have to look into this. I haven't been to a craft fair in years. I had looked at some ready-made pieces, but I have one window in particular where I think a custom piece would really look nice and hit the morning sun just right.

Love the stained glass, Kay and Steve! You must get that, Steve, it is just perfect for you!

There's an artist in Cozumel who makes beautiful SG underwater scenes and mermaids. I continue to be very tempted...

When I lived in White Bear Lake, it wasn't a suburb yet, just a small town north of St. Paul. We moved to Montana on Jan 1, 1964.
