Meeting Sandy, 521 Lake Street & Finds

This cute little velvet pumpkin I purchased on Friday and I shaped it into a heart!

Sandy is the gal in the dark jacket and brown hair. Her cousin, Linda has on the peach top. Linda drove Sandy, almost a 2 hour drive to meet Tammy and me! Wasn't that very nice! These two gals are the sweetest and we had the BEST day, SHOPPING!!! This is at a thrift store. Many bargains were found and Bought!

These are a few of my purchases. Isn't the mail holder sweet!

 We had TEA at Tammy's. She set a pretty fall table and made yummy pumpkin scones. The tea was delicious! Thank You Tammy.

So, we meet them by the Mall Of America around 10 AM and went directly to an occasional sale. It was there first time at one. Went to a thrift store after that. Then we went to Touch Home in Burnsville, then to Tammy's. After Tammy's we went to another thrift store....WOW....then Sandy, Linda and I went for dinner. I dropped them off at the MOA and they were going to go to DWS shoe store and Archivers. Then drive home! WOW!!!

It was so great to meet Sandy!  I just wish we could have had another day to "create"!!!!

Hubby and I went to a very cool estate sale yesterday and this young gal came up to me and said, "are you, Garage Sale Gal, Deb?" YES!!! and I met Erica, another blogger!! SMALL world indeed. She is recovering from foot surgery!

Tomorrow is my duty day at Auntie M's. Wednesday is craft day with "J"! Thursday is BSF, Friday is "fun work day" at Vintage Cottage where I get paid to "work"...another fun week that will go by quickly!

Still getting used to this new blogger format,'s a tad frustrating! Of course the more I "blog", the easier it will become.

Have a HAPPY Week!

Hi Debbie
How fun that you met some blogging sounds like you had a good time and they drove a long way to meet up.

Your tea table is lovely and I know you had lots to talk about and goodies to enjoy.

Hope everything is going well for you. I haven't had a chance to blog very much or to catch up with everything.

Enjoy the lovely fall.

Linda and I talk constantly about that great day, and how much fun it was! Not a bad photo either! lol...if you have any others can you email them to me? I will be posting when I get home..... I also wish we had more time also, so we could craft time for sure!

Very cool that you were able to get together again with your local bloggers! Then to meet another blogger at an estate sale. So much fun! I get so excited when I meet someone who appreciates vintage as much as I do!

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Deb, Oh what fun you had meeting blog friends. Isn't it great to meet others that we've known through blogger? Love your sweet finds and the mail holder is darling.
Tammy hosted such a pretty Fall tea. I want to visit MOA some time too. My sil said it is great.

I'm not crazy about the new blogger either. You are right, it gets easier but I still like the old format better.
Thank you for stopping by and your blog birthday greeting.

Hugs, Celestina Marie

Sounds like you had a fun day Deb! I would love to meet some of my blogging friends. I have a special friend from Florida that I met from blogging, and have visited her several times already. (She won't fly).

I do not like the new format on blogger either. I was able to change it back to the old one, with the help of a fellow blogger, but my luck ran out, and they caught up with me! lol Ugg, why can't they just leave things alone??


Creative Breathing said...

You are famous now! How fun someone recognized you out and about.
I think I have told my husband about your get together with our blogging friends a dozen times now. What a joy!
Always, E

Hi Debbie,
Oh...that is the cutest little pumpkin. I am just now getting my Autumn decorating started. Hopefully, this weekend I will get all my Fall fluffing done.
Thanks for sharing your fun day with good friends. It's such a blessing to have gals that share the same heart beat.
Warmest wishes,
Carolynn xo
