......a day to remember!

Yes, there will be plenty to tell about the fantastic day at Penny's home yesterday!  Fourteen, yes 14, blogging friends had an amazing day in the North Carolina mountains.................perhaps a record number for a meeting of bloggers!

The famous fourteen in Penny's potager - image by Bob(my DH)

Back row - Ulrike, Angie, Mary, Sherri, Jeanne, Jennifer, Melinda
Front row - Sam, Penny, Rhondi, Diane, Penny (our hostess), Donnie, Kim

I'm getting ready to head back home this morning........will have stories and pictures to share all week.  A barrel of fun getting to know the gals, and several brave husbands who came along, Penny's scrumptious brunch at her gorgeous home...............and then going on a marvelous treasure hunt to the antique malls and shops in Asheville.

Edited Tonight!

Jeanne zigged when Bob zagged in the first shot - this one is better except Kim was missing!  So you now get two shots of the fabulous group.


  1. Wonderful dear!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!! We did have a lovely day too at the shop!!! Lot's to talk about!! Love, Vanessa ps. Have safe trip back home.

  4. We had such a wonderful time yesterday and Penny was the most gracious of hostesses. Loved meeting you all and hope you have a great Sunday. Don liked my treasures

  5. What fun! I've never been to a bloggers' reunion, but I'll bet it would be interesting to speak in 'real time' with some friends I've never met face to face.

  6. Oh Mary what a wonderful time that must have been. I love NC and SC both. The mountains must be beautiful this time of year. Can't wait for some more pics.

  17. Hi Mary, I laughed when I saw the first photo of our group. Bill had the same problem. well, at least part of me is showing in his photo. I loved seeing you again and meeting your hubs. He is such a nice man and handsome too. smile. Penny's blog party was a wonderful day with so many women having something in common. I loved every minute. I put my Lavender in a vase in the bathroom. It smells great. Thank you so much for floating me the loan. I still can't imagine me leaving my purse locked in our car. Sigh!

    Looking forward to seeing you in Dec. Or sooner if you decide to come to Franklin. We would be delighted to have, you as our guests any time.

    Love you bunches, Jeanne
