New friends!

" You just never know who you re gonna meet~ so make sure you brush your teeth!"
I read that in a book a long time ago and ya know something, IT'S TRUE!
A few weeks ago I was working in the shop and it was a busy day. Lots of customers and I had just torn up a display because a big cabinet sold.
This one customer and I started chatting and she was just full of compliments and sweet things to say about the shop. She offered me her card....Yep, THE ANNA GRIFFIN.......
designer extroidinaire!

Many of you know her wonderful scrapbook designs along with stationary, invitations, rubber stamps and more...

like her fabric! Turns out she is from Marshville and was there helping her Dad decorate the little restaurant right across from my shop that he had recently purchased. It was such a joy meeting her and I believe we could have talked all day! The one thing she said that will stick with me was" I have never loved Marshville more than I am today~Thanks for being here!"
Wow Anna, you made my day! To see the talent of this wonderful woman go to http://www.annagriffin.com/. You will be amazed and inspired.

This past Tuesday, I met a friend for life! Sue from Vintage Rescue Squad was heading in my direction in NC. We emailed , set a time, and next thing you know she was standing in my shop Tuesday morning! As soon as we met neither one of us could shut up and I new then and there I would always want to know this lady!
I had a FULL DAY planned on junkin so we hit the road.
Our first stop was Red Robin for lunch! Had to fuel up for the rest of the day. I know I had to have been talkin with my mouth full but GOOD GRIEF...there was just so much to talk about!

After that we went onto The Sleepy Poet where we both found some awesome stuff! She was worried that she was "crampin my style on my day off!" Don't worry I set her straight! Junkin is so much better when you have a bud with you. I was waiting for that item that we would cat fight over but it never happened. Sue likes weird stuff so I didn't have to worry! LOL! Just kidding! We have similar yet different tastes and I had a ball. After that we went onto see my friends Susan and Wendy at Southern Comforts when Sue practically blew a gasket and bought a boatload! Next trip was The Depot at Gibson Mill and after that Sue said she is definitely coming back down!! What a great day! Thanks for making the effort to make a pit stop in NC SUE!! Can't wait to do it all again!
And yes...... I had brushed my teeth!

Hello there Beth....!

THANK YOU so much for taking the time to stop by my blog.... :o) !

I am so SO envious that you got to spend time with Sue....!!! Sue's wonderful blog was the FIRST junking blog I discovered last year when I FELL into blogland & I am a HUGE admirer....I have my fingers & toes crossed she can make it to Junk Bonanza so I can finally meet her myself....!!

I've read right through your blog to the beginning & the one thing that sticks out above anything (aside from your AWESOME eye) is your ENERGY....PLEASE share your secret & DON'T tell me you only sleep 3 hours a night....If there's something you're eating or a vitamin you've discovered I NEED TO KNOW....hahahahaha....!!

Take care & have a GREAT weekend....!! I'm looking forward to your next post....!!

Cheers from Australia,
