Calling All Az. Bloggers for a Lunch Get-together

This is a picture of all the wonderful Az. Bloggers that made it to the last lunch. I would love to have even more make it for the next one that will be on Oct. 30th.
Cindy of Applestone Cottage will be here from Wisconsin and this gives us all a chance to meet her and to meet each other.

In the picture above back row from left to right is me, Charlotte - At Home In Scottsdale, Debbie - Heart Choices, Mary - Pile of Smiles, Michelle - Beelive You Can, in front from left is Donetta - A Life Uncommon, and Sherry - Country Wings in Phoenix.

Lunch is planned for Oct. 30th at Gooseberries Tea Room at 7th St. and Thunderbird on October 30th. We will meet at 11:00 AM. This is a wonderful little Tea Room if you havn't been there. We will need to know if you plan to attend so we can make a reservation, and you will need to place your lunch order in advance. You can select your menu from their web site Gooseberries Tea Room I will need to know so I can place all the orders when I make the reservation.

I really hope ALL of you will do your best to attend. It is always so fun to meet fellow bloggers and really get to know them. The plan is for everyone to bring a homemade gift or small fall decoration, then we will draw numbers and everyone will get a gift to remember the occasion.

You can contact me at, or at I look so forward to meeting all of you in person.

Hugs, Marty


  1. Oh, this looks like so much fun Marty! And a guest from Wisconsin! Wow, I wonder what she's going to make of the Arizona weather? Hope you have a great turnout and a lot of fun. Hugs, Kat

  2. Marty, how much fun that you happen to share this post this evening. Laurie (of Bargain Hunting & Chatting with Laurie) and I met for lunch today. She was passing through town on her way to a reunion with some high school girlfriends. She had an hour while waiting to meet up with one of her friends, so we met up at the airport and had lunch together. It was great fun! How nice that you are organizing these lunches for the AZ bloggers.

  27. Hi Marty
    What a great idea. I have been thinking it would be fun to have a get together for the bloggers from NC. Maybe I will.
    The rug you got on sale is perfect for your dining area.
    Hope you have a good week.
    Hugs, Rhondi

  28. What a great idea, looks like you all had fun!

    xoxo, Cathleen

  29. Hi Marty,

    I forwarded the info onto Dawn Binyon of Altered Artists. She is in Scottsdale.

    On a side note, is there a way I could get an estimate of who is coming perhaps a few days before the event? I might find time to do something crafty. The key word is might. :)

  30. Sorry, I misplaced your blog... so I neglected to tell you what I want off the menu. So Cindy reminded me and I have sent her my choice off the lunch menu.
    Thanks again. Can't wait to meet everyone.
    See you on the 30th!
    linda t

  31. I would love to attend and meet you all, but I work during the day. Maybe next lunch can be on a weekend? Saturday maybe? I'm in mesa. I'm Niki :)
