My First Get Together With Fellow Bloggers..

Hi Girls...

Yesterday was such a fun day.  After several years of blogging, I finally had the chance to meet some of my fellow local bloggers in person at a small gathering hosted by Deb of Garage Sale Gal blog.

What a sweetheart she is.  Deb is just as nice and sweet as she appears on her blog.

It was a small gathering with just Deb, myself and two other local bloggers, Linda of Itsy Bits and Pieces and Tammy of Tammy's In Love.  It was nice to have a small group for my first time meeting local bloggers as it was easier to visit and get to know each other. 

Deb made us a wonderful lunch with soup and salad and she gave us a tour of her wonderful home which is filled with all sorts of  beautiful antiques and collectibles and I got a chance to see up close and personal all of the wonderful goodies she has in her craft room/studio.  Wow, that room was packed full of the most fun stuff.  I could have spent hours in there just looking at all the great stuff she has dipslayed.  As our time together came to an end, Deb was kind enough to send each of us home with a few special little gifts

These are the sweet gifts Deb had waiting for us upon our departure.

A candy dish with some yummy chocolates...


Little packages of paper ephemera to use in our crafting projects...


 
Linda even brought each of us a little gift from her stash of wondeful vintage goodies.  Two little bundles of vintage french flash cards and some pretty fall colored seam binding...
 
 
And a fellow out-out-of state blogger even sent Deb some gorgeous fall themed cookies to share with her guests.
 
 
It was such a fun and special day and I look forward to spending more time with these wonderful ladies and getting to know them better.

And to close out this post, I am sharing a picture of the four of us that Deb's husband kindly took. He got the fun job of playing photographer for us as we posed in front of Tammy's awesome vintage Chevy car..  That's Tammy on the left, me (always the tallest one...), Linda and Deb on the right.


Thank you so much Deb for inviting us into your home and for your generous gifts. It was so great to finally get to meet you in person and I look forward to more get together's in the future.

Fun! I'm so glad you went, Kim! It looks like you all had a good time.

Why did I not know you were tall? I was surprised when I went to farm chicks and there were a lot of women taller than me. I keep forgetting that I've shrunk! ♥

Any friend of Debs is a friend of mine. I grew up in Minnesota and now live in Orlando. I met Deb when she was here on vacation and saw her last year when I went home to visit relatives. She was one of my invisible friends and now she is real!!! It looks like you ladies had a great time. We had a gathering here in Orlando and it was to big, you had the perfect size group. I am looking forward to following you!
