Thanks to the ever so fun and feisty Ms. Sue of Sullivan and Murphy, I was fortunate to meet a lovely group of girls on Saturday. We are all on the same page with our passion for vintage, our burgeoning businesses and our joy in reclaiming pieces of the past and refreshing them for new use today.
We also happen to be from the great state of Ohio.
We met in charming Tipp City and from the first, as we strolled the farmer's market, I knew we would find fresh friendship in one another.
That old Silver and Gold, new friends and old saying is so true.
We need both in our lives to keep things from becoming stale.
When I ventured into Blogland a few years ago I had NO IDEA what a bounty it would bring.
I have connected with so many women I would never have met otherwise.
We all share common threads in what we love in life.
A harvest of new friends far and near has been such a reward.
The best part is to meet in person and share laughter and stories and sew the seeds of lasting friendship.
I know you want to meet them too, if you haven't already.
Lettuce begin...(Sorry, I might be taking the harvest theme a bit far, teehee.)
Of course sweet Sue, who brought us all together. What a ball of fire. She had me in stitches!
Jo, from Jo's Second Act, thoughtful and funny. A pleasure to meet.
Pam of House of Hawthornes, sunny, cute and full of fun.
Debby of Cozy Blanket, what a doll. Just charming.
Darling Susie Q from Rabbit Run Cottage. Sweet and genuine.
I feel abundantly blessed to have met these chickadees and hope we will be seeing more of one another in the future.
Fall will be here soon, girls!
I could now break into a rendition of "Friend's are like flowers, beautiful flowers..."
but I wouldn't want you to gag on your beverage.
Suffice it to say I thoroughly enjoyed meeting these soul sistas.
We had a fun filled (and junk filled) day.
There were a few Buckeye Bloggers who couldn't make it Saturday. I do hope we will meet next time.
(I did meet one on Sunday morning, more later...)
A bouquet of new friendships, an introduction to a charming small Ohio town, some delish food and scrumptious vintage goodies, that's what I call bounty.

Yours in friendship old and new, P.
