The Tale of Two Penny's

Once upon a time there lived a woman in NC named Penny. Penny had a blog or two and spent her days happily visiting other blogs. One day, she happened to stumble upon another blog from NC. And as fate would have it, the blogger's name was Penny too!

So the two Pennys talked...and made plans to meet. What fun they had! Below are the two Pennys. (You can click on any picture to enlarge for detail)


Since they both loved to shop, and they both loved antiques this is the first place they went.

Wait...do you see what I see in the back there? On top of the red table? Yes, it is a great rooster lamp. Did it come home with either Penny? No....a little pricey.



After spending some time shopping the two Pennys grew hungry, so they stopped for a bite to eat at the Stone Soup restaurant.


Penny (from The Comforts of Home) had one of the specials. A quesadilla filled with zucchini, onion, corn and goat cheese.



Penny (from the Lake Lure Kitchen) had Black Eyed Pea Cakes on a bed of greens.


Both dishes were delish! Here is a picture of the inside of this restaurant based on a Fable.



It was a fun filled wonderful day. The moral of this fable is....if you find a blogger that lives near you, don't hesitate to contact them. You just might find a new friend and have a wonderful time.
If you don't know Penny from Lake Lure Kitchen, take some time to visit her blog. She is an amazing cook and features wonderful recipes. Penny and her husband are in the process of turning a lake cottage into a wonderful home, where the kitchen is the heart of the home. Stop in and see her and tell Penny that Penny sent you!
Welcome Home,
Penny

  7. Oh Penny, it's so true. Just last week I hooked up with another Leigh Ann who only lives about 25 miles from me. That is funny, two Pennys and two LeAnns.

    Hugs,
    LeAnn:)

  23. I love that rooster lamp. I keep looking for one at the thrift stores and yard sales, I think they add such a cute touch to a table. I also love the little picture in the ornate frame and the bird votive holders. What a neat place!
