Meeting & Making New Friends

We just arrived home from a trip to FL, after visiting my Mom for Christmas.

While we were in FL we had the pleasure of dropping in on a blogging friend.

Many of you, like me, follow Katherine's blog at Yellow Rose Arbor. I have always admired her and the posts that she does. She has a lovely blog, please pay her a visit.

We spoke through e-mail and decided to meet on this trip. She graciously had us to her home where we enjoyed a great time of fellowship. We also had lunch at one of her favorite tea rooms. We had such a good time of shared fun and laughter.

This is the two of us in the living room of her lovely home.

Thanks again Katherine for being warm and for your friendship.
Thank you all for visiting today and may this coming year be one of health and seeing dreams fulfilled in your lives.

Well, I don't know how I left a duplicate of my previous comment--oops! I am so glad you liked the tablescape...I guess from the 23rd of December? Those coasters for the goblets are brushed gold and I got them at World Market for 99 cents a piece. They are a perfect complement to the chargers that you can find everywhere--World Market, Hobby Lobby, etc. The goblets were personalized by a store in Memphis, Tennessee. Happy New Year.
