What’s ‘NEW’ in the lanai?

DSCN3216[3]

Did I buy something new?

Did I decorate it with shells?

Did I sit on the sofa and blog?

Can you guess?

Do you give up?

Peek inside today....

and LOOK who came to visit me!

My bestest blog buddy,

Della from Del’s Shells .

She had jewelry for me, of course! (and I had handbags and totes for her)

DSCN3982

And we talked and laughed and even made grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch!

Then we shopped and had more fun!

She made a pretty hair barrette for my straight hair! (I had to hold my mouth just right for it to work! lol)

It was a pretty exciting day for me!

It’s so nice that we live close to each other!

Do you get to spend time with any of your blog buddies? Do you think I need a perm? heeheehee!

I had so much fun with you today! You are much more photogenic than I am, because you are so very pretty Diane. I really enjoyed myself, and you make the BEST grilled cheese sandwiches! I am glad that we live close, too!
Big Hugs!

Our old house puts me close to one blogging friend and I consign things in the shop that she manages. I am glad y'all had so much fun:}

Blog buddies spending the day together! What fun! I think your hair looks great! Love your shell necklace!!

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

Oh, I am SO jealous!! How fun for the 2 of you to do that. You know, when I mailed you your towels I realized how close you 2 lived and I even thought "Hey, I wonder if they ever visit?" Such a small world. So far I've gotten to meet and spend time with 4 blogger buddies and it's the best!

NanaDiana said...

Oh- So far I have not had the opportunity to meet any of my blog friends- Maybe one day that will happen-

It looks like you gals had wonderful time! You are both pretty ladies- xo Diana

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

I would like to camp-out in your lanai once I get the kids back in school. I hope I can finish the upstairs before August 20th. Diane, it is such a mess that I am freaking out about it!!! :/

Sally said...

How wonderful! I don't live close to any of my blog friends, but sure hope to someday meet them.

You ladies look very pretty! :)

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

How special. I have met some of the nicest gals blogging. Sounds like a wonderful day.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

What fun to get together with a blogging friend! You two are both so pretty and it's easy to see by your smiles that you all are having a great time! And, your lanai is very pretty, too.

Hi Diane

It looks like a perfect day with Della, hanging out comfortably on your lanai, chatting, creating and having lunch.
I have only met one blogger and she lives in Ireland. Some day I hope to remedy that and meet many more

Hey we had grilled cheese too! Infact, I tried to make it in a sideways toater like on Pinterest and let me tell you, it didn't work to well. Lots of smoke :( Sadly, no blogging buddies near by and I'm still pretty new so perhaps in the future I will get to have a day like you did with your blogging friend. Seems silly to have a pretty nice home an no visitors but my family enjoys it.

How fun is that, being able to spend time with a blogging buddy. I met a sweet blogging friend once and it was by mere chance and it was wonderful. Unfortunately we don't live close enough to visit as often as I'd like but it sure was awesome meeting her. So glad you and your buddy had a great time.

Hugs and Kisses,
❤Ana

Marina@Picnic at Marina said...

I wish I lived closed to you two, you sound like a lot of fun. No, I don't live close to any blog buddies, but I really wish I did. It is nice to hang our with someone who shares same blogging ideas.. :)

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

It's always such a treat to finally meet a blog buddy. It looks like you both had such a fun visit in your cozy lanai. Grilled cheese sandwiches sounds soooo good!

Roxanne Reinhart said...

I was lucky enough to meet up with Pam from I love shelling last year for lunch on Sanibel. I thought I was meeting a rock star I was so nervous! Lol I am happy that you guys live close and maybe just a tad bit jealous that I missed the fun!

Carol @ Always Thyme to Cook said...

How nice it is to meet a blog buddy. You both look like you are having the best time!

Mary said...

You are so cute...and no need or a perm...what would that do in the humidity? So nice to share your friend with us..happy day.

Donna Heber said...

I'm so glad you had a wonderful day and that you have a blogging friend who lives near you. My advice is to skip the perm - you look great just as you are.

Trace4J said...

Wow how fun for you Friend.
No perm I think your hair is just beautiful just like it is.
Love your new treasures too.
Hugs

Oh, how wonderful that you have a blog buddy close by, Diane. The two of you look like two giddy high school girls. And I love your hair. Don't change a thing.

Hope we don't lose power with the storm. Stay safe, my friend.
XOXO's,
