Friendship And A Coffee Table

Yesterday was an amazing day!

I am sure you remember I mentioned  Jennifer Rizzo organized a Midwest meet up.

Yesterday was the day!


We met at Room 363  a beautiful shop owned by Mark Norkaitis.

We ate a light breakfast and mingled.

Shopped a bit….had lunch….. met at paper source for a card craft.

Thank you Sharon Rexford for organizing that!

Wish I had taken better photos.

The room was a bit tight and hard to shoot photos.


I was thrilled to have met some many other bloggers.

But I have to admit there were two ladies I was really excited to finally meet.

I have been following there blogs and when I found out they were going to be there I almost fell off my chair!!

Karianne of Thistlewood Farm  and Heather from  At the Picket Fence were among the attendees.

Can you believe that!!!!

Still can’t believe it!

They are my rock stars….FOR REAL!

I think everyone there was in awe and so inspired by these lovely warm down to earth women!

They are both just as sweet,funny,amazing and beautiful just as you see them on there blogs.

I left with so much knowledge about blogging and inspiration.


So sad when I had to leave.

Yes I did I know our paths will meet again.

But it was such a wonderful experience I did not want it to end.

My face hurt from smiling.

Oh and all the other wonderful women I met so amazing and talented too!

Thank you all for those beautiful treasures you all made in the swag bag.

Wow you all ROCK! What talent!


This table was found recently.

It was not working where I had placed it.

But I did not want to sell it.

I had to figure out where to put it.

So I cut the legs shorter and made it into a coffee table.

That lace towel was bought at room 363.




I think this table works here!

So glad because you know how much I LOVE these old chippy tables.

This will  not be going to the vintage market :-)

    It sounds like you had a wonderful time, Anne. How nice that you got to meet these creative women (yourself included) in person! It’s a small, blog world. :)

    I love your table cut down for a coffee table! Aren’t you glad you were able to find the perfect spot for it?

    Boo Hoo, once again. I wish I could have juggled things to make it. I remember how nice it was to meet you last year. I know Mark. He has great taste and a eye for display. I’m glad you had a good time. I need to be at the next one.

    Sounds like y’all had a fun day! It’s always fun to get a chance to meet people that you’ve been blogging with. I got a chance to meet Karianne and Heather last year during Haven. Love your cute coffee table!

    Aw, how fun! I’m so happy for you. I feel a little sad for me though because if I still lived in Illinois I would have totally gone and got to meet you!
    Your little table is so adorable!! I can see why you don’t want to part with it! It looks great in your beautiful room!

    Hi Anne: I’m so glad you got to go and meet the ladies. I follow them also and am in awe of the beautiful things they do and the way they present them in their blogs. Maybe you could teach an on-line class so we all could learn the good lessons. Just kidding, know that would be almost impossible but how nice that you got to meet up..Happy Weekend..Judy

    I so would have loved to be at that Midwest meet up. I can just imagine the excitement of everyone meeting in person and the chatter, and laughs and story telling. I’m glad you had such a lovely time Anne and I bet they really liked meeting you too.

    How exciting to get together with lots of fellow bloggers. I bet those ladies were thrilled to meet Anne from White Lace Cottage as well. :)

    Love your coffee table and thrilled you aren’t getting rid of it. I wouldn’t either.
