A Fellow Blogger Came Through My Back Door

Good morning, come on in and have a cup of coffee. Back to DD today. It is right pleasant this morning Through My Back Door and I am so glad you came. Lets go sit here and drink our coffee and I'll tell you about my visitor.
A few weeks ago, Sue Beck had on her blog she was coming to Pigeon Forge for a vacation and did any body know any good shopping areas. Of course I was right on that! I sent her a link to the Clinton stores. If you haven't been to Clinton antiquing, you have missed an experience. Somewhere in the e-mails we decided to meet for lunch. We met at Cheddars on Monday. What a good time we had. It was like we had known each other forever! We chatted non stop.(Imagine that, two prim bloggers having so much to talk about). This is us after lunch at Cheddars.
After lunch I took them to Clinton. We went to my most favorite prim shop, The Speckled Hen.
 Sue is smiling because she found the curtains she had been looking for. If it is prim, its here. We then went into Clinton to my favorite antique store, Corner Antiques. It is an antique lovers haven. They have everything and their prices are wonderful. I went home and left them to themselves. Sue brought me some wonderful goodies from Florida.
She actually made the towel. I love it all. Can't wait to put the pillow out for fall. I didn't have a little journal and I love it. (However, I have a confession. I am afraid of anything with feathers, yes I admit it. So no quills at my house). Here is where I put everything.
This is a close up of the journal. Here is where I put it.
I will put the pillow out as soon as I can, probably the first of September.
On Saturday, they went back to Clinton for the Christmas in July sale. Since they were so close to me I invited them to stop by, which they did. Again it was like two old friends just catching up. I did enjoy them so much. Let me say this about her husband. He never rushed us or acted like he was being put out by our chatter. They are wonderful people, you just can tell that, and I am so thankful God let our paths cross. They will again, because they will be back and when they do, they will come Through My Back Door where life is good.
ps Sue doesn't particularly enjoy big dogs, but she and Dasko were fine! BTW Her blog, if you don't know, is Primsues Heart and Home. If you visit it, you'll be inspired.

  2. Betty, So glad you and Sue got to meet. Sounds like you had a great time. I am so hoping to get to meet you also as soon as we can get a girl's trip planned sometime before Christmas.

So sweet. Have a great day.
