A Splendid Adventure in My Creative World...

I knew the moment I came down the road.... This is the HOUSE where Mary lives! Have you ever felt a bond with a blogging friend so strong that you felt you had to meet her? Well, that is the way it was for me and my two blogging sisters Mary (A Splendid Adventure ) and Bev (My Creative World Bev was visiting Mary and to kill two birds with one stone, we decided to get together! I love old restored homes, so of course I had to go and meet them at Mary's house. (Note~ We had been talking and blogging for the past two years....No Fear)
Getting out of my car, I seen the beautiful, big front porch screen door open. Out of the house running and screaming (as best as we can at the age) Mary and Bev run out to greet me. Arms open wide, huge smiles and love surrounding them. Yes, they are crazy, fantastic sisters and I fit in right with them. Of course the day was extremely short with my visit. The girls served me a unbelievable lunch, we toured the house over and over again and we walked the grounds. The day could not have been any grander. And to show what a small world we live in~ My son knows Mary's new daughter-in-love and we know the family!
I know this will be the first of many visits for us, I have found two kindred spirits. I hope you enjoy my tour of Mary's house, believe me the pictures do not do it justice. It is a treasure among treasures as well as my friendship with Mary and Bev!
A Splendid Adventure happens when the hearts of friends come together in My Creative World.

WOW!!! So glad you got to meet them. Beautiful house, great pictures. I have been thinking of a way to redo my couch and I loved hers with the white cover. I would love to know what she used. Great idea.
