Penny's Place.......

Having a wonderful blog friend is always exciting......meeting her again in person a second time, sharing time in her home and studio, then lunching with her and many other blogging girls, is even more fun!

Penny of The Comforts of Home and Lavender Hill Studio may have more beautiful china than the rest of us put together!  Here's just sampling of her shelving units groaning under the weight of dishware and silver awaiting their new lives after she turns them into..............

................lovely pieces such as this!

Then there are Penny's culinary skills..............she makes the best darned quiche I've EVER had!  These were baked early Saturday morning before we all arrived.  When the 'fabulous 14' sat down to eat they were still warm from the oven and perfect.  I tasted two - the Mediterranean, delicious, and the Mushroom and Fontina Cheese, scrumptious!

Jeanne of Backyard Neighbor and Penny our hostess.

More stories from the best blogging get together ever coming up later this week.....including fabulous antiques and vintage items from the shopping trip.


  1. Good Morning Mary~
    It was a blast having everyone here! And a very special treat to spend more time with you and Bob. Really, we can not let a year go by again without getting together.

    You make my studio look really fabulous in your photos!

  2. That was the best quiche ever!!!

  3. Mary, bring on more photos of this lovely time. It's fun to see more of Penny's studio. I purchased one of her pieces before she moved to this new location. I absolutely love it! It's a planter done with black and white china. Penny is a talented artist! ~ Sarah

  4. That was such a beautiful post on Penny's fabulous talent including her cooking talents too. We had so much fun. I can't wait to do my scrapbook pages on that great day.

  5. Good friends, lots of talking and good food.....what's not to ejoy?

  6. I can tell that you all had a blast together at Penny's.
    Next week I'll be meeting up with Sarah of HFTS in Savannah, we are both so excited at being with fellow Quimpernuts once again.

  7. Sounds wonderful, Mary!

    I loved seeing a glimpse of Penny's studio.

  8. Next time I think Vanessa and I are going to have to tag along! It looks like you guys had so much fun!

  9. Penny is a marvelous cook and I love the pictures you took Mary. It was so much fun. Looking forward to more and what you did with your great finds!

  10. I think that meeting with fellow bloggers is a wonderful idea. Penny sounds lovely and I can't wait for you to post more about the time that you had. I haven't had the opportunity to meet any fellow bloggers yet. Hopefully, my time will come! Carla

  11. I would love to have brought some of those dishes home with me as they were so pretty! Yet what she does with them is fantastic. I agree Mary, the quiche especially the Mediterranean quiche was the best. I'd like to have that recipe!
    Take Care,

  12. I see a lot of faces to love gathered together.
