Michele Much was born and raised in Manawa, and has dreamed of owning her own salon as long as she has been cutting hair. The day after graduating from Cosmetology School she was hired at Styles II right here in Manawa. She has had several opportunities to purchase her own salon; however the timing wasn’t quite right, until now. Michele learned of an opportunity in downtown Manawa and the timing seemed just right, the building which was the home of the Barber Shop for many years has taken on a new life as Bridge Street Salon. It was purchased and completely renovated in just 2 months’ time. Bridge Street Salon opened their doors February 9, 2015. Ashlee Hass is available for styles, cuts, pedicures, manicures. Michele has a lot of experience caring for and applying acrylic nails, gel polishes are also available. There is an art to using electric clippers, and Miranda has plenty of experience as a barber, while offering her expertise as a stylist as well. Michele, Ashlee and Miranda work well together and enjoy making Waupaca County beautiful!
Two massaging pedicure chairs beckon for a spring spa day or really any time of year. The salon is available for a full range of beauty to assist the entire bridal party in being picture perfect for that special day. Prom can be extra special with a beautiful hair style, manicure and pedicure.
The beautiful renovation of this downtown building needs to be seen, stop on in today and enjoy being pampered at Bridge Street Salon.

Scones, Part 2

Scones Part 1

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

I have been working on the latest you tube video for our you tube channel, Breakfast with Judy.  Along with my brother in law, Thomas, who has been working with me regarding the editing of the video, we decided to split the footage into Part 1 and Part 2.  This has been a new adventure as I shot this with my cell phone and so that presented some new challenges.  I have to admit at times it doesn’t really look like I am enjoying making the scones, however nothing could be further from the truth.  I just found it challenging to shoot the video, set the camera and remember to smile all at the same time.  I hope you enjoy this latest you tube video, please subscribe to the Breakfast with Judy channel, and as always thank you for watching Breakfast with Judy, at the Lindsay House Bed and Breakfast, Where the joy of living is served daily.

Tubing the Wolf

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

TubingI can’t even think of the last time or if I have ever been “tubing”.  I thought I would be essentially floating in a huge inter-tube, not the cadillac chair I was given, it was awesome! In Symco we got in right at the Symco Bridge across from Boondocks Bar, and floated the few miles to Fahser’s bridge.  It is quite a thing to figure out how your going to carry and on what tubes, because as in many activities, it is all about the drink and the nosh.  Floating along the river, we stopped at a few sandy places along the way to keep up our strength with the occasional snack, and be able to visit with one another, and joke and talk smart.  We were passed by a group of people who clearly were enjoying the river and the beautiful day as much as we were.  The weather was perfect and so was the company, it was a great time.  Thank you to Ann, Diana, Carrie, Gina, Kimberly and Stephanie for making it a great day and a lot of fun.  So at the end of the journey is Fahser’s bridge, which it seemed like a good idea to jump off the bridge so that is just what Ann and I did.

What a great day! There is so much to do and see right here in Waupaca County, don’t miss it!

Pigeon River Brewing

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, my friend and I finally found the time  to go together to C&C Sales in Marion, Wisconsin.  Now for those of you who don’t know what C&C Sales is, it is an Amish grocery/dry goods store, where you can buy things like flour and sugar and other baking stuffs and groceries for a very reasonable price.  Once we arrived, and Tim was able to go in and “jones” around as we like to refer to it.  We discovered that not only do they carry a variety of grocery items they also carry some furniture, handmade rugs and other items.  One of those items being fresh fruit, it happened to be cherries that day.  You can place your order and C&C Sales will contact you once the fruit arrives, and of course we had to order fruit, more on those adventures later.

The second part of our day was stopping at Pigeon River Brewing for a bite to eat.  I have heard that their menu is very good, and we were not disappointed.  The service as well as the food was outstanding.  Blair and I split a black and blue burger and some of the best homemade fries I have ever tasted.  Seasoned just right.  Tim ordered a pizza, which of course I had to sample a piece and it was yummy as well.  Tim’s brother Thomas ordered a burger and fries and his was very tasty as well.  I am not a person who knows much about beer or the brewing thereof.  However I know enough to know that when you find people who are passionate about what they do, so much so that they want to share it with the world, that is a winning combination, and that is what Pigeon River Brewing has in spades.  So kudos to two gentleman for having a passion for brewing beer and let’s raise a toast to dreaming of big dreams.  http://www.pigeonriverbrewing.com/

The third part of our day was to stop at Dupont Cheese on the way back to Manawa from Marion.  I never tire of seeing all the different types of cheese and how delicious it is.  Dupont is no exception.  They have many varieties of beautiful cheeses to choose from.  Many of the dairy farms surrounding Manawa and Marion is where the cheese begins its journey as milk.  At Lindsay House Bed & Breakfast, we do our level best to keep the farmer’s in business.  Dupont is just a few minutes from Manawa on Highway 110.  http://www.dupontcheeseinc.com/

TDubs

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Some of you may have been wondering, and maybe not, where our April outing was or rather our April outing blogpost.  I must admit that I am a bit behind in posting about it.  Ann, Diana and I went to TDubs in Waupaca, on April 29th.  It was so nice to get together and catch up with each other on what has been happening in our little corners of the world.  T-Dubs is a warm and inviting space, with an open kitchen that you can sit at the bar and see the chef’s at work, it is really cool to watch the creative process of the kitchen staff.  We were greeted by Jenny, who I understand has been at TDubs for quite a long time, and she was our server as well and did a fabulous job, very knowledgable about the menu and the offerings of the evening.  I enjoyed a cucumber and mint wine spritzer type drink, it was fabulous, very refreshing.  Our appetizer was these cajun seasoned chips with a bleu cheese dipping sauce and let me just say, the dipping sauce was so good, and the chips had a bit of a kick, awesome! The pasta dish I ordered was Chicken Vesuvio, which is penne pasta and chicken with fresh mushrooms, asparagus, red peppers & onions, tossed in a lite white wine garlic butter sauce with chicken, and warm homemade bread, yummm!  Ann was pondering several choices, and in the end she ordered a sesame ahi tuna sandwich, which she really enjoyed. Diana ordered pasta as well, in a creamy tomato sauce with several different types of cheese and chicken. For anyone who has ever read any of my blog or my recipes in the local paper, you know dessert factors in heavily, ok probably the wrong turn of phrase to be used in this sentence, but dessert factors heavily into my life.  When you can have a dessert experience that varies from the everyday, oh you want it!! Jenny deftly ran through our dessert choices, and of course there was a standout, which I promptly ordered with 3 forks.  It was a chocolate cake made with Central Waters Bourbon Barrel Stout, and let me tell you, the vanilla undertones of the Bourbon Barrel Stout were highlighted in this dessert, not to mention that it was so moist, and light and the number one thing, just chocolatey enough to satisfy, but not over the top.  Double Yummy!

I have eaten at TDubs probably a half a dozen times, and have found something new and tastey each time.  Diana had been to TDubs before for a work related dinner.  Ann has lived in Waupaca County most, if not all of her life and she had never been to TDubs.  So it just goes to show you, there are alot of things to do and see right here in Waupaca County.

Many people think they need to go outside of Waupaca County to experience Wisconsin, and I am here to tell you, the heart of Wisconsin beats right here in Waupaca County.

I challenge you to find those things that are right around you, and experience something new.  It’s your day!

Rooms of Blooms at the Paine Art Center and Gardens

Paine

Rooms of Blooms, held at the Paine Art Center and Gardens, is such a beautiful event.  Being able to enjoy the Paine Art Center as well as the flowers which seemed to be matched to the paintings that hung near them to a T.  The Florist’s adaptation of the canvas, as it were.  The competition in the Great Hall, that the public could vote on were 7 tables set with each designer’s beautiful and all very different ideas and looks to them.  Florists from around the Fox Valley did an amazing job. One of our Waupaca County Florists were featured, Cathy Spiegelberg owner/designer of Premier Petals in Weyauwega.  Cathy designed the flower arrangements in the Master Bedroom at the Paine for Rooms of Blooms, and they were amazing.  Kudo’s to all of the designers whose work made Rooms of Blooms amazing!  Thank you one and all.
