Meeting a Blogging Gal & Finds

This morning, Faye , from the Wild Rose Vintage blog, came over and purchased the gargoyle sign that she saw on a recent post for her hubby. We chatted like old friends! It was so nice. I even "let" her see the family room and she didn't blink an eye! That is the sisterhood of "collectors"!!! Thank you Faye! It was great meeting you and I'm sure we'll be talking soon.

The big score this weekend was...YES, vintage greeting cards. I went the first day of the sale and they were 1.00 each...that is WAY TOO MUCH!! Went back the 2nd day and they were 5 for 1.00...That is what I'm talking about! So, I bought a FEW!!!

Grandgirl had a fast pitch State Tournie today and her team took 2nd place. Let me tell you it was Hot & Humid! Watched for 4 hours...that is what Grandmas do!

The computer is very slow and won't spell check for me. Guess the weather is affecting machines too. It's going to be in the mid plus 90's ALL this week. I AM MELT!!!

Trying to keep cool...

It's so much fun to meet someone we've already made friends with! What a beautiful photo of the two of you! And I love your fun Valentines! I would love to find of these days! Enjoy your evening!

Hi Deb! That picture turned out great of both of us! I had a really good time and made it home quicker than it took to get there because I went home the way I should have come there in the first place! (did that make any sense?) Anyway...thank you so much for inviting me in and letting me look at everything...I love your taste in decorating and I felt right at home. Say thanks again to your hubby and hi Jackson Brown and Sweet Pea...yes my cat noticed and made a funny face! Your Valentines are a good find!

Isn't it nice when we meet someone who "gets" us, who has the same passion for collections. It's like we click instantly.

How fun to meet a fellow blogger. Darling picture of the two of you. Your cards are fantastic. I'm especially smitten with that black owl! How fun!

Linda said...

How wonderful that you were able to meet a blogging friend. I love it when I use to meet pen pals (remember when we wrote snail mail letters?) I LOVE the vintage valentines, wish I would have saved all the ones my kids rec'd.
