Getting Together

Yesterday I drove to Greenwood, a little town that has several antique/vintage shops
 as well as a pretty tea room.  (With delicious food, I should add.)
Some cute little bits and pieces did come home with me.


But the best part of the day was getting to meet a blogging friend:
Twyla, from Two Crazy Crafters!!


Twyla, you are such a sweetheart.  
Thank you for the soft slippers, inspirational book and tea towel and other goodies! 
How glad I was to have this opportunity to meet you in real life!
Let's get together again soon!

    1. We found a wide range of prices on similar items. Vintage booth owners take note-- People will not pay outlandish prices for your things if the booth next door has them marked much lower.

    1. The tearoom in Greenwood really did make for a nice place to meet a blogging friend for the first time. It might be fun to arrange for a KS and MO bloggers meet-up, someday. ( Greenwood, or somewhere else similar to that. )

  28. How absolutely wonderful! I just read about your meeting on Twyla's blog. I tell you, every blog friend I've met in real life so far has turned out to be someone that I truly clicked with. It's as if we were friends forever. I see that you two did not have any problems carrying a conversation. Ha! Best wishes, Tammy
