Friends make the day brighter

It's always wonderful to meet new people and share your obsessions. Did I say that I meant intrests. I finally had a chance to meet Rondell from Tomato Creek Prims. We had a wonderful day shopping and talking. We bought almost the exact same things. How strange is that!!

Actually it was amazing to be with someone who shares my love of prims. Most of my friends have no intrest. If I told them I saw a make-do chair they would look at me like I had a hole in my head. When Rondell saw the first one and said about it being a make-do chair I wanted to hug her. Finally someone with a lick of common sense. Well I guess prim sense is a better way to put it. We both could have walked out the door with the credit cards smokin. But we restrained ourselves.
The first stop was The Country store in Belle Vernon. We planned to meet there by our cars. You know the feeling you have meeting someone for the first time.Well it really wasn't there with Rondell. I felt like I already knew her from her blog. As we met on the sidewalk and continued inside we just talked and shopped. Of course we headed for the half price room in the back of the store. I had seen Rondell post about it which is what gave me the idea to meet sometime there. I bought homespun there to make curtains. Since we were already planning to go to The Rusty Angel and I knew Rondell hadn't been there before we were conservative with our spending here.
The Rusty Angel is a prim lover's heaven. If I could live here I would. It has all the things I would love to convert over to in time. I'm a prim wanna be right now. I am s-l-o-w-l-y converting from a more eclectic style to prim. I've always ahd the preference it's just finally having more of a direction.
I digress........As you approach The Rusty Angel you get a feel for the store immediately just by the style of the porch.
This candle is actually lit and smells great as you enter.

I left my camera at The Rusty Angel when I went back today to get the curtains I saw on Wednesday. I can't post any pictures of what I bought then or the new stuff I bought today until I get my camera back. Sop tune in next time for lots of eye candy.

Thanks for a great day Rondell. We'll do it again. I stopped to check on that green painted trunk we saw on the way and some guy was carrying it away. Sad face. I should have stopped sooner.

Have a great weekend everyone.

I saw the post on Rondell's blog, too. How cool to meet a new prim friend ~ I know what you mean ~ most of my friends just look at me like I'm crazy when I ooh and aah over prims. Have a wonderful weekend.
