A Fun Time With Blogging Friends...and a Winner!

This past Saturday, I attended a fun Minnesota blogger's meet-up hosted by sweet Deb of Garage Sale Gal!  Also there~  Kim of Shabby, Pink and Pretty and Tammy of Tammy's In Love.    It was so fun getting to know these ladies, touring Deb's lovely home, and sharing a wonderful lunch together!  Tammy arrived in style with her vintage 50's dress and 57 Chevy and it gave us a fun place to take photos!  Thanks to Deb for sharing the group photo her husband took of us!

Deb had fun goodie bags for each of us with sweets...mine was lovely milk glass...won't it look cute holding a little pumpkin?

Also, cute ephemera (and you know how I love that)...

and this sweet little pug calling card!

And our thoughtful friend Sharon of My Vintage Studio doesn't even live in Minnesota, but she sent a box of wonderful fall cookies for us to share...so sweet!  Blogging friends are wonderful, aren't they?

It was a beautiful fall day, and a great time was had by all!  Thank you SO much Deb for opening your wonderful home to us and for all of your kindness!

Before I go...a big thank you to all who entered the Artistic Stencils giveaway!  The winner is...

Jennifer (jcamp78)
She chose the Vintage Peacock Stencil!

And I am joining Debra over at
The Marketplace at Common Ground
Hope you'll stop by, too!  It's a WONDERFUL place to find the best goodies on etsy and online boutiques!

Until next time...

  15. Hi Linda. Just had to stop by and say again how nice it was to meet you in person at Deb's house. It's nice getting to know the real people behind the blogs instead of just having to imagine what they're like. I hope we get more chances to get together in the future when the time allows. And thanks again too for the little gifts you gave each of us. I will have fun using them in some of my future craft projects.

    Take care..

  23. Oh my, I know you must have had lots of fun. The thing about blogging buddies, is that they are people with whom you have something in common. And that is a very rare and special treat, to have a friend that you have something in common with.
