Because of blogging…

…I’ve made friends, had fun and learned a lot along the way.

Oh…and I got to go shopping at a neat store!

I talked to my girlfriend at Olive Out about the Antique store where she has a booth awhile back. I told her I thought we drove through Ridge Spring, SC on our trip to our home in NC.

And sure enough…we found it and I got to shop there. I hope I get to meet her sometime, too.

This was a quick…run in the store…take a few pics….buy something….and get back on the road!

And what fun to feel that connection.

Thank you for posting my give-away!
I couldn't have resisted that turquoise bracelet either.
Your friends shop looks awesome!

Love your bracelet! Isn't it odd that these people we know thru blogging become our friends even tho we've never met them? When I went to Alaska, I met up with Paula and it was like we were old friends. One of the many extras of being a blogger.
