Shopping with Bloggers

This post is seriously overdue!  Yep, about a year late!  Pictured in the photo above from left to right:
Laura, who writes Harvest Lane Cottage,
Danni, author of Silo Hill Farm,
and Ciree who really needs to start a blog!
Last September, I had the opportunity to hang with these delightful gals at Sandstone Gardens in Joplin.  If you've never been there, it is a shopping extravaganza!  You can find stunning items for your home as well as old world statuary for your garden.  There's also a lovely little bistro onsite.  I actually met Danni there before and posted about it right HERE!

It's so great to shop with crafty, sewing, clever girls because together, we can figure out how to make just about anything!  You should have seen us touching every last item in the store.  Turning it, considering the construction.  I really think I can make this tree.  Isn't it cute?  That's Ciree's hand in the photo!

You might be wondering what came home with me.  I actually chose only gardening items, with the plan to sew, whittle and hot glue everything else I wanted!  ;-)
These darling bunnies and a little frog are so sweet.  Both are currently sitting in my butterfly garden!

We need to plan another crafty, sewing, clever girl retreat to this amazing destination! 
Who's with me?

  1. Looks like a great place to shop.

  2. Hi Marci! Great place to spend some time with good friends!

    I see you have captcha. I wanted to share a tip I've been using that has cut down on spam tremendously. I've turned off comments on posts older than 30 days. I used to get about 200 spams comments a day, now maybe one or two at most.

    Another tip is to use Askimet. It's a great plugin and although it doesn't stop all spam from getting through, it stops about 99%.

    If none of these appeals to you, I've seen some blogs that simply have a box that needs to be checked by the commenter. It's a lot easier than captcha! I go and hopefully I'll be able to read it and publish this comment ;).

  3. As I'm catching up on blogs this evening I was so surprised to see this! What fun we had and how nice it was to meet Laura and see you again! I'm game. Did you make that tree yet???! Thanks for the shout out friend!

  4. How fun! Glad to see blogger gals having such a good time together! :-)

  5. I so admire people who can make things! Be able to look at something and recreate it or are just creative themselves. I have a hard time coloring. Looks like you girls would have a great time no matter where you went!

  6. Love all the treasures you found. I'm in next time!

  7. Oh, it sounds like you all had a great time together. And I want to go there shopping. Hope you have a great day!
