What’s better than a VINTAGE find?

Meeting one of your blog buddies that loves everything vintage, too!

I was SO thrilled to meet Sherry from Back 2 Vintage a few days ago! She and her hubby are both wonderful! (thanks to her hubby for taking this photo!)

We talked (both of us with a serious southern drawl!) and laughed and I think I tried to stand behind her in some of our photos! We had SUCH a great time!

And did she give me a sweet gift? ABSOLUTELY!

She knows I love to collect vintage Florida souveniers and look at this adorable plate! OH I LOVE IT! And she gave me these wonderful bars of lavender soap! It was all in a beautiful bag that I can use again and again!

Don't you love how you sort of take off running when you finally meet a blogging friend in person? There is no awkward time, just old friendships. The best.

Lovely vintage plate...I collect Maine ones like this.

Isn't it fun to meet blogger friends in person?! I've met several now and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Next time we're both in the mountains of NC, at the same time, we'll have to get together. ;)

Thanks for joining the party this week.
