In that spirit I have to share with you the absolutely lovely day I had yesterday with fellow blogger, Debbie, from The Lake House. It was the first time we've met in person, and actually the first blogging friend I've ever met in person!
She is an absolute delight. I had such a wonderful time getting to know her. I felt a kindred spirit through her blog and it was confirmed yesterday. We went shopping in a nearby town with more stores than either of us has in our own towns. We are both Debbie's, we were both oohing and aahing over the same things, we both like to go thrift shopping, and most importantly we are sisters in Christ. It was such a refreshing day.
The only bad thing was that I took my camera and completely forgot to get a picture of us together. We were having so much fun I just didn't even think of it!
I did come home with some treasures too. Maybe my next 31 Days post should be "Leave your Wallet at Home!" Actually, I so rarely do this and I had money set aside, but I could have bought a lot more...so many pretty things.
I took a list and I actually got everything on my list! That never happens. The main thing I wanted was some mercury glass and boy did I score! I've never seen it in my hometown. There is one store that might carry it (though I've never seen it), but their prices are, well, a bit out of my comfort zone. We went to Hobby Lobby and the prices were unbelievable...and in a good way! Here are my first pieces of mercury glass.
I am in love with these pieces! Look at the detail on the tall silver jar.
These blue pieces are gorgeous...be still my beating heart!
I also bought these awesome chippy planters.
Debbie (the other Debbie) bought some too. Take a look at how pretty hers are arranged. I just plunked mine on a counter and shot a quick picture.
I had a Bath and Body coupon for a free signature item with a $10 purchase. Score at least one Christmas gift. I needed socks from Dress Barn, because they are the only place within an hour and a half of me I can get socks my size...yes I have big feet. I'm tall so I guess I need skiis to support me! Scored the socks too. I also found the Goodwill store after Debbie left town. Sorry Debbie, but next time I'll know where it is ;) I'll share my purchases from there later. This post is long enough for now, and I have to get started on my 31 days post!
