Visiting in "Real" Life with Bloggy Friends!

Awhile back...I got to meet and go to lunch with... 


We were both a little nervous...I know for sure, I was. Will it be awkward, will we have enough to talk about, will I talk too much, and will she like me in "REAL" life.  Well, I shouldn't have worried about all that, except for the talking too much thing, sorry Pat! I realized when I got home I talked too much, along with food in my mouth, no less! I was just so excited to meet you in person!  We barely got our food ordered or ate, we were so busy catching up!  She brought me the sweetest gift, a junk tassel she made, wrapped perfectly in a doily with red trim! 

All I brought her were some magazines, I had been going through, though it would be a gift I would appreciate, so I took a chance that she would too! We talked about you gals, also, we have many of the same "bloggy" friends, sure wish you could have been there!  I've met a few others from "bloggy" land, but mostly  through shopping...this was the first time I had the opportunity to meet just because...It was great and we feel like old friends now!  

 I hung the tassel on this lamp, when I got home, 
to keep it safe...
because we were right in the middle of the remodel
...and I like it there! 
funny how things like that come together...

Isn't it great when you get to see your friends in person?!!!
I have a friend, Shabby Vintage Junk...she just asked, hoping. I'd be at Round Top...She is coming from Australia! Boy, sure want too...but, don't think so, this time, but we will see! 
( We've invited a Japanese F.Exchange  Student to spend Spring Break with us,
so it might would be rude to go out of town, I think!)

~Posting soon about our fun trip to The"P"~


All this talk about New Year decluttering and cleaning and such...I'll just leave you with this quote...

....hahahahahaha....Lezlee I LOVE that quote....SO MUCH so that I think I may have to make a sign of it & place it up on the bulkhead in our livingroom where the seesaw currently hangs.... :o) !!

It IS a WONDERFUL thing this meeting of Blog Friends....You already have SO MUCH in common....I'm yet to meet a BF that I haven't CLICKED with & I'm SURE it would be the same with you Lovey....!!!!!

You know....I reckon a trip to Round Top would be the PERFECT introduction to the 'real' America for your Japanese exchange student....FOR REAL....!!

Cheers for now....Your Aussie MATE,
Tamarah xx

Isn't it so wonderful to meet our friends. I too have had the chance to meet a friend from GA and we had a blast! How small our world really is....

Lezlee, you sound like you had a great time with your blogging friend.
That is so nice. I have meet a few in person also and enjoyed them so much. We will have to get together when I visit my daughter. The ice storm seem to change all of my plans my last visit. I did get a lot of needed rest though. Hugs, sandi

Oh my gosh, that quote describes my life to a "T". lol

Love the tassel Corn made. The place you put it on the lamp is perfect.

Thanks for all those 'good' words you had to say... I had such a great time with you that day, and lunch was great too.
It's probably a good thing our schedules are full or we'd still be sittin' there, chattin' it up.

Love that little quote-- and isn't it so true?

It's so fun to meet bloggers! I was happy to meet Tamarah at Junk Bonanza! She is a lot of fun!

It is very funny how things just come together like that. And meeting people for the first time how exciting. I have yet to meet someone I blog with, but I very much look forward to it one day.

-Much love, Kim and Mr. Gnome
