Meeting a Blogger & Coffee Table Makeover

A few days ago, I received an email mail from "Jocelyn" and she said she would be in MN and could we meet! YES! So, we had lunch and talked like old friends! Then I took her to my favorite candy shop, Abdallah's in Burnsville and then to Antique's Minnesota and showed her my booth. It was a fun few hours together. Jocelyn has 2 blogs! Just a Little Southern Hospitality and Happy Cottage Quilter! It's GREAT to meet bloggers! I'm so HAPPY that she emailed me!

I bought this coffee table for TWO dollars at a garage sale. I was looking for one with more "space" to hold more "treasures" LOL!

I painted her a linen color and she is in the living room with just a few "treasures" on her! Just wait until the holidays! LOL!

Grand girl played 7 games in Kansas. They won 3 and they came home today. They had a fun time. The hotel had 2 pools!

I'm Loving this weather! I hope it last until December 1st!

boopnut said...

Hope to meet some day! I would love a coffee table but know it would become cluttered...such is our lifestyle!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It is always fun to meet other bloggers, Deb! I had a bunch to meet at Haven and it was very exciting to turn around every minute and see someone else. Nice find on the coffee table. It sounds like you had a great few days. I'm hoping our weather holds out for the rest of the Summer; it has been just beautiful with no humidity!

Theresa said...

Congrats to the Grandgirl on making it that far. I know that they would love to make it all the way BUT, it is quite an accomplishment to make it there:) Love the table, great job on the makeover!!! Sweet picture of you two friends! Blog friends are just the sweetest and I hope to meet you one day too:) Have a blessed day dear Deb, HUGS!

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

You two look so cute! Glad you were able to get together!

I'm kind of jealous of your coffee table. The living room belongs to my guys so I just use my hope chest as a coffee table and it can't have anything on it! Oh well, the kitchen and dinning room are mine! ♥

ThrifterSisters said...

Meeting blog friends in person is the best! I'm lucky to have a couple that live close by and I get to see from time to time.

Love your "new" coffee table. I am in the market for one too.


craftyles said...

How fun to spend part of the day woth a new friend. Sounds like you are so busy with your grands. Enjoy the nice weather!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Some of my "real life" blogger friends are my best friends. What a great day.

Andy's Attic said...

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Isn't it fun when we get to meet blogging friends? Sounds like the two of you had a great time. What a deal on the coffee table.
