Meeting Arizona Bloggers

What a super fun day we had. Yesterday several of us who live in Arizona got together at a really cute Tea Room called Gooseberries for lunch. I was so busy visiting and meeting everyone that I forgot to take pictures of the really cute Tea Room, but you can see in the background in the pictures how cute it was. None of us had ever met one another, but of course since we're all bloggers, it was instant love and friendship. I think I can safely say that everyone had a wonderful time. The talk and the laughs were non-stop. If you get the chance to meet fellow bloggers, by all means do it, you will have the best time.


From left to right, Me - Charlotte - Debbie - Mary - Michele - Sherry and Donetta in the middle.



If you don't know these ladies, please stop by and say hello to them. You will love them.
In this pictue we have from left to right - Charlotte-At Home in Scottsdale, then Debbie-Heart Choices, then Mary-Pile of Smiles. Aren't they gorgeous ladies, and don't you just love their blog names.



In this picture we have Michele-Beelieve You Can, then Sherry-Country Wings in Phoenix, then Donetta-A Life Uncommon. Their blog names really represent them so well too. Such sweet and friendly ladies.


Michelle got everyone together, she's unfortunately moving to Pennsylvania, however that really doesn't matter, because friendships are for anywhere you live in blogland. What a super day, I just had a ball. Thank all of you ladies for such a perfect and fun day.




Hugs, Marty

  16. Your gift of what Abba Pappa had done for and with you and your grandson will always rest a treasure in my heart. The love and wisdom of teaching the child to breath again spoke volumes to me of your character. I was honored to have shared the time with you and with all of the others who are so individually amazing and powerful women of kindness and integrity.
    It was a pleasure.

  32. Hi Marty,
    What a lovely time you must have had! It's great that you were able to meet each other ... always nice when kindred spirits can come together.

    I had somehow missed your cool white tablescape ... just beautiful! The touches of blue were such a nice accent and added to the coolness!

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving the generous and kind comments on my little Christmas in July story. I was afraid it was too melancholy and no one would like it! I always appreciate your thoughtful feedback.

    Bye for now,
    Bill

  38. Good Morning Marty!
    I just knew you would love my Pink Saturday post. I love this cloche, and I was so thrilled when I found it. I found it at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall. It was black metal, and bent in so many places, and it leans a little. Tony thought he could fix it, but I have decided I don't care. I love it the way that it is. I am keeping it, and I love it painted pink. It was so sad all black. These little lights I found at JoAnns and they are for little crafts like this. I turned the lights off last night and looked at it on the table, it has such a magical glow about it. The little hummer appears to be saying let me out. Let me out. I so look forward to many more times together. I just love you, and honey you are a keeper. I am keeping you. Love, Sherry

  42. What fun!!!! I'm coming to Arizona next month. We are staying in Cave Creek the week of my birthday 8/21. I need to know where all the thrift stores are in Scottsdale & Phoenix. Or antique stores. Or any other place that is fun to shop. We were in Cave Creek last August. I loved shopping there, but kind of expensive. But I did get some clearance items. I did accidentally find a Goodwill in Mesa, but that is the only thrift store I went to last year. I know you are thinking I am crazy for coming to Arizona in August, but my parents stay in a time share & we can stay with them for free. So I can't pass up a free vacation. Plus it's hot here where I live in southern California as well. Thanks for sharing about getting together with all your local blogging friends. I would love to meet up with you when I'm in Arizona if you would like. It could be fun. Thanks for visiting my blog & leaving me a comment.
