"The Big Crafty"

What a beautiful day in downtown Asheville!

The weather was fabulous and parking a few blocks
away gave me my exercise for the day!

And the BEST part......

I met Lori ! She has the blog, The Morninglori Vine !

I have loved her blog and all of her wonderful creations
ever since my cousin, Cindy gave me the book with her
cute critters in it.

It was so much fun to see them up close
and Lori is just as lovely in person as she is online!

What a fun time!

I haven't walked downtown to shop in a long time
and now I can't wait to go back!So many neat stores, restaurants and art galleries downtown!

Have a wonderful week everyone!
We have a busy one ahead of us!
Thanks Lori for making my day so special!

Hi Diane,stopping in to say HI!...what a beautiful day you had to spend shopping, your friend lori has some really neat critters very unique and cute. I was looking through some of your blog posts that I missed and saw the sweet bird nest with the eggs, what a nice find. I used to have a book on birds and eggs etc but it must be packed away. Very nice posts, have a nice week! hugs, Jennifer

I saw your picture on Penny's blog Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen and decided to pop over and say hello.

I didn't realize I'd find downtown Asheville.....what a nice treat. We live about two hours west in the mountains near Tennessee & Georgia. Our drive over is through the Nantahala gorge and it makes it a fun trip for the day. We like to go for Mediterranean food at a cafe near the Biltmore for lunch. Can't recall the name. It's nice to meet one of my neighbors.

There are such wonderful arts and crafts in your area, and I hear from my friend that the Asheville weather has been perfect. What a perfect day you must have had. It's always fun to get to meet a fellow blogger in person.
