Meeting A Special Blogger Friend



Friday afternoon Ceekay @ Thinkin of Home and I had the thrill of getting to meet Mary @ Mary's Meanderings while she was here visiting her in-laws for the Thanksgiving Holiday. She and her husband came down from Colorado. I was so happy when she notified me that she was going to be in the area and possibly we could get to meet. We were able to get a time set up for Friday afternoon and Ceekay was able to join us. (In the above picture Ceekay is on the left and Mary is on the right.)

Mary and her husband have begun a new Ministry in Colorado. It was so interesting to hear how they were led to this new adventure. She is just as gorgeous and gracious as she is in her blog. They bought this wonderful huge old home and they're in the process of bringing it back to life. If you don't know either one of these ladies, then you definitely need to check out their blogs. They are both so creative and such truly lovely women. Ceekay and I both had the best time. It's always like you are meeting a very old friend when you get the chance to meet a fellow blogger.

As usual, whenever bloggers get together there are always gifts. I can't even begin to tell you how thrilled I was when I opened my beautiful gift bag and found this beautiful cloche. Isn't this the most wonderful cloche you have ever seen. MARY MADE THIS!!! I am so impressed. She took a candle holder and glued it to a beautiful little dish and then she took a glass container and attached the gorgeous finial and now I have the most fabulous cloche. I can't wait to decorate it for the upcoming "Holiday Cloche Party". Now does Mary know how to give the most perfect gifts in the whole world or what.





Mary thank you so much for making the time for us to get together. I had the best time and it was so wonderful to get to meet you in person. I really look forward to seeing you when you come back.



Hugs, Marty

  3. Oh how what a fun visit, Marty! It is such a treat to meet in person, share information, and just plain have fun. If only we could do it with everyone...
    Hope this finds you well and looking forward to the Christmas holidays. I am so behind in everything- it makes my head spin more than it has been doing just thinking what I'd like to get done, but probably won't this year. I guess "they" are right~ most accidents DO happen in the home!
    hugs, Sue

  6. Mary and I have met in person several times here in Colorado. You are right - she is the best. Glad Ceekay was able to join you. My prayers go out to her on Monday as she has another round of the 'nasties'. I would love to meet both you and Ceekay someday, as I enjoy your blogs so much. Have a great weekend. Sally

  22. Marty we just got home from traveling back to Colorado. Checking emails and had to come over and say how very much I enjoyed our time together! Thank you so for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet me and then the wonderful surprise of getting to meet Ceekay too!! I think we would have talked for another 2 1/2 hours and never paused!! I felt like this is just a little taste of heaven - meeting other sisters in Christ! Looking forward to doing this again when we are down that way and going to your favorite shopping haunts!!!

    Thank you friend! It was such a special treat for me!

  27. Hi Marty....

    Oh YeSSS! I have been over to visit BOTH of these lovely ladies. I'm so glad you had a good time together. And, a CLOCHE! Isn't that right up your alley. And, it's lovely too.

    WOW.....I don't think I knew you used to live in Bend. It's just the cutest little town, isn't it? We always go in October and we ALWAYS have wonderful weather. They just built a new Italian restaurant at the Old Mill District. It's soooo yummy! We'll go back there for sure.

    Huggies and Lovies,
    Spencer

  32. Isn't that just so much FUN meeting fellow bloggers?!

    I must say.....those poinsettias on the ledge behind you guys.....well, they don't look too inspirational. Are they SILK? If they were fresh that would be sooooo much prettier.

    The smiles on your faces makes up for them, though!
