Apryl from Meridian Ariel came to visit all the way from England. We were able to meet not only for coffee and pizza night at my house but on Sunday she and her family came for a heated game of Apples to Apples. We met previously in Seattle and last week we were able to meet in Santa Rosa. She brought me the loveliest gifts ever.
Apryl knows me well and brought me gifts in my favorite color combination: red & aqua. Remember the red & aqua swap? Not only did Apryl make me a hand sewn pin cushion but she made me some decorated pins to go in it as well. My heart missed a beat when I unwrapped the vintage button necklace. I've barely taken it off since she gave it to me. She has a tutorial for making your own here.
It is always a lot of fun to be in the company of another blogger. We speak the same language, a sort of online code that exist in blog land. Our visit was way too short as always.
This post is rather late today and I still have many comments to answer from the last two weeks. The children return to school on Monday and hopefully I can fall back into my work schedule. We did hit a fabulous estate sale this morning which I'll share with you all on Monday. Have a great thrifting weekend.
