Meeting Bloggers! - At Home With White Event

Well, I am just still giddy with excitement over meeting blogger friends yesterday!!! I had the pleasure to finally meet some amazing talented ladies whose blogs I constantly visit.  I also got to meet a new friend and discover her blog as well.  Without further adieu....here is the story and pics:

Lovely Sandi from A Cottage Muse is a vendor at the "Wrentham Country Store".  The store was hosting a delightful "At Home With White" event this weekend, and it was GORGEOUS!!! I felt just like I was in one of those amazing events that we read about all over the country in blogland.  The white tent outside was heavenly and full of ethereal dreams!  Sandi was so gracious and welcoming, and I just loved her wares.  Next...I got to meet the talented Michelle from Petite Michelle Louise!!  She is just as warm and friendly as I knew she would be!  We were all so excited to put a face to our blogs and get to talk in person.  Here is a picture of myself, Sandi and Michelle:

Here is a pic of myself and Sandi when I first arrived.  Note the gorgeous tent wares behind us:

The other ladies working at the event couldn't have been kinder and more welcoming.  They all have such talent at showcasing their wares and attending to us lucky customers.  I met another sweet blogger named Karen who was also a vendor.  Her blog is "A Shabby Moment in Time". 
Here is a picture of the 4 of us bloggers:

Me, Karen, Michelle, Sandi
It was such a beautiful spring day and we were all so happy to meet and SHOP!  My dear husband graciously agreed to take the drive down with me and our little children, then he patiently attended to the kiddoes while I chatted & perused.  Thanks Bri!!  My daughter loved finding all the 'pretty' items and my son kept bringing me items saying "Mom, I found something beautiful for you".  Everything there was beautiful!  I could have spent all day there.  Alas...I'll be back someday. 
Here's a peek into the white tent and Sandi's space:

I have more enticing pics that will be posted for this week's White Wednesday.  I'll also post pics of the treasures I brought home with me from Sandi and Karen's spaces.
Until then...happy treasure hunting!!

Ah ..Thank You Susan for such kind words ! Your blog is Beautiful ..I love how calm, and peaceful it is and I love the images you share ..they are so Lovely ! Sometimes it takes me a while to get to everyone's blog. Creating and working at shows and online sales is my full time job as I'm a single gal. So I have to be very dedicated to making a living at what I love. Which means I don't get around to everyone's blog as much as I wish I could. I know the majority of ladies that do this, do it as a fun extra, as a side job since they are married so I imagine it gives them a little more freedom to visit and comment on blogs. I'm so glad I made it to yours and now I'm a follower so I'll be better able to keep up with your posts.

have a lovely week ..

Blessings ..Sara
