Blogger lunch at Sweet Peas

Hello! I had the pleasure of getting together for lunch with some Central Florida bloggers this week.  What a treat to spend a few hours with like minded souls.  In this photo starting at the top left - Me, Kathy (blog stalker, thrifter, booth owner) and Carol of The Polka Dot Closet. Now bottom left, Shelley of Sweet Pea Home, Karen Sue of Sue Bee and Butterflies and Susie of From my home to yours.  Behind the camera on this shot (BIG THANK YOU) is Sylvia of My Trinkets.

We got together at Shelley's for lunch and good conversation. These gals are bloggers, junkers, artists, trend setters, collectors and decorators. What is there not to like?  Shelley was kind enough to host us at her home this time.  As I mentioned before, Shelley's gorgeous home has been featured in professional photo shoots. She has a self described style that is French farmhouse with a bit of industrial and shabby. I think we all agreed that you could just spend hours studying her vignettes.  Shelley didn't mind if we did just that.  Thank you for being such a gracious hostess.  You were so kind to let us all wander about your home with our cameras snapping photos!





Have you thought about organizing a lunch or happy hour for your local bloggers? We plan to do this again soon.  I've offered to host the next one.  Everyone can bring their cameras and take pictures of my kids art on the fridge, my folded laundry on the washer and two basset hounds sprawled out on the couch taking up all the seating! lol  I certainly enjoyed seeing Shelley's lovely home but meeting these gals was the best part.  xoxo  I hope you will take a minute and visit each of their links . They really do inspire me, and I truly enjoy reading each of their blogs.  I know you will too.  Hope you are having a great week! Linking this post to-

  21. What a great time that must have been! Wish there were area bloggers "closer" - alas, I guess that's why we blog - all the kindred spirits are spread miles and miles and MILES apart. Shelley's home - and your photos of it - are amazing! I want to enlarge everything and just study it!! BEAUTIFUL!! Thanks for sharing Vicki! Smiles & Hugs, Robin

  33. Hello Central Florida! Hi Vicki,
    I somehow stumbled upon your blog, and I am glad I did. I live in the Seattle area now (past 6 years) but was born and raised in Florida. I lived in Brevard County for many years. I lived and worked in Orlando when I was very young for the State Attorney's Office. I know exactly where Oviedo is... I have a friend who lives on a street called Gerber Daisy there. I also lived for many years in Houston, Texas. So, I am a Southern Gal at heart but love living here in the Northwest in the Seattle area. The Central Florida blogging party you had looked like a lot of fun! That was so nice that you were able to get together. I sometimes return to Florida as we still have family there. I LOVE to visit Park Avenue in Winter Park...it has always been one of my very favorite places in the area to go. I'll add youf blog to my list of "other nests to visit" and I am glad to find some Central Florida gals. Have a happy day! xoxo Kim
