I have returned from my most excellent adventures with the sweetest and craziest group of chickadee's I have ever had the pleasure of calling friends. However I am not quite ready to reveal all of the wonderful times we had quite yet. I am still unpacking and settling back into real life. However I do have a link to give you a taste of what we were up too as well as one that is shamelessly self promoting.
Elegant Thrifter's blog! Love Stan, love his blog.
He is on my list of must meet blogger's. Style, great taste and thrift all contained in one elegant gentleman. His book The Find is so full of inspiration it makes me want to scrap my decorating and start again from the beginning.
My next tidbit is a dream come true. I will tell you all about it in my travelogue a few days hence. But, I had to steal a photo for this post and I know you will all die with jealousy when you see it. First a little backstory. When I first began blogging one of my constant commenters and supporters was Ms. TNT herself, Debbie of Talking Trash. I read her blog faithfully and we both had the same sense of humor, the same love of junk and the same struggles with blogging. A true soul sister, she has become quite the celebrity in the blogging world. I swore someday we would meet in person for a great big hug. My dream came true this past week, not just a hug, but some lunch and thrifting and lessons on being a Southern gal (my alter ego). I was overwhelmed. If you know Debbie then you know how she has made her true love, Cat Daddy into something of a celebrity in his own right. So ladies don't be hatin' but guess who showed up while we were sharing lunch...
Yessiree, I got to meet CD too. He had a moment to stop by from work. Now, just so you know, Debbie tells me this is him smiling. Anyhoo, I was so thrilled to get to sit and talk and hug Debbie. As she said it was like being reunited with a girlfriend you hadn't seen in a long time.
Of course, before I get in trouble, I did get to spend 10 entire days with two bloggers who have become wonderfully dear friends, Jodie and Sandy. We have managed to meet up once a year for the past 3 years. What a marvelous place blogland is. I promise girls, you will get your due in the next few posts. I just want to do our adventure justice. I also had the pleasure of meeting sweet little Sarah, just 26 but she held her own with us "older" gals. Of course Jodie I know you aren't that old.
Well, ta ta for now, I need to catch up on work. I just had to check in.
Lots more later, Have a lovely week, Pam
