blogging friends


I had the chance to spend some time with three of my favorite bloggers a couple of Saturdays ago.  Elaine from Sunny Simple Life, my sister in law and I met up with Kris from Simplify and Mary Jane from The Beehive Cottage at a local craft show where Mary Jane was selling her beautiful handcrafted wares. 

We had the opportunity to tour her adorable vintage trailer and ooh and ah over her paper crafted lovelies.

Mary Jane's work is even prettier in real life.  I wanted it all!  If you haven't visited her Etsy shop, there is still a little time before Christmas...wink, wink.

It was hard to pick favorites but I finally narrowed it down to these beautiful items.  I can already tell I'm going to have a hard time actually giving these sweet tags away and have found a spot in my sewing room for this adorable clipboard.

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to meet up with fellow bloggers, I can tell you, these ladies are just as sweet in person as they are on their blogs.   I knew I felt a connection with them through what they share in their posts and after meeting them in person, that connection is real. We talked over lunch like we had been friends for years.  We've already made plans to meet up again soon.

 Enjoy your Sunday, Patty

  3. Hi Patty,

    I have purchased some of her adorable tags and vintage (looking) journals. I transferred all my handwritten/miscellaneous recipes into that sweet journal and it makes me smile a mile wide when I pull it out to bake. Those tags look so cute on your sewing table.

    Love to you sweet gal,


  4. Hi Patty, this is actuallyl Kris, but I am babysitting at my daughters this weekend and using her profile name. Sorry. You said it so perfectly. I was so at ease with each of you. I too felt like I had known you forever. I was so thrilled to bump into you at Maryjane's lovely trailer. She was an absolute love, and so were (are) the three of you!!!! I can't wait for our next meeting, and also to meet your dear, sweet friend Debbie too!!!

  6. Oh I can't wait until the 3rd. You guys are the best and I have the best time with you.

  7. Oh that sounds like so much fun ! I have gotten a chance to meet a few of the bloggers in this area , and felt a instant connection to them also. Maybe it is because we all have similar interests, I don't know, but the connection is there .
