Don't you love the quote above? That saying was true today, when my blogging friend Rhondi visited my home. Rhondi lives a couple of hours from me and until today we had never met in person. We became friends when we met in blogland. Rhondi's blog is called Rose Colored Glasses.
Here we are! Mr. Comforts of Home took our picture standing in my dining room. We had been planning a meeting for almost a year now. When Rhondi arrived she handed me a gift bag filled with the most wonderful things!
She knew that I had started a collection of vintage gardening books in the colors blue, green, yellow and red and she found this one! Look at the great detail on the spine!
Rhondi also knew that I was adding a little more blue into my decorating and this sweet Mary Engelbreit book fits the bill!
And....look at this wonderful yellow rooster trivet! It is just perfect for my kitchen!
After visiting at my house for a while, we headed downtown Hendersonville for lunch and a little shopping. We were so busy talking we forgot to take pictures at lunch! I remembered after we were in one of the little shops and took a couple of pictures. This wall was filled with rooster items.
I had to take a picture of this cute purse. Click on the picture to enlarge for details
We walked through some antique stores and some thrift stores, talking away. Rhondi was exactly like I thought she would be. Sweet, funny, interesting and genuine. I felt like I had known her forever.
Rhondi, thank you for driving all this way to come visit me. And thank you again for the very thoughful gifts! I am looking forward to the next time we can get together.
