Now...on to the REAL news......
I am not one who really likes to share pics of myself.......just hate the reality of them all.....IYKWIM....however, since my dear stamping friend, Charlene (LilLuvsStampin) was kind enough to drive all the way from Michigan so we could meet face to face, I just have to 'get over it' and share some pics. Charlene will have more to share as I forgot my camera yesterday. I only got shots in Mystic and at my house.......! She has already left and is now visiting Cape Cod for a couple of days before heading to Boston to meet up with Julia (artystamper) and Anne (jdmommy). Quite a whirlwind of a trip!!!
Charlene is to the left. I am on the right.
Picture was taken while visiting Mystic, CT.
Charlene and her traveling friend, Sandy, pointing to the Mystic Pizza sign.
Sandy is a film buff, so we had to visit Mystic Pizza for lunch.
Charlene in front of our local diner, named after her (wink!)
It actually was a real diner years ago, but now is a storefront restaurant.
Charlene and I in the stamp cave.
Doesn't look like those showcase ones that many have,
but it works for me. Dawn L. was the one who gave it its name
when she visited a year or two ago. It has cloth walls and no windows....
it is in a real New England unfinished basement.
My tradition when people come to visit is to take a final picture
in front of my fav Japanese maple bush. Unfortunately, after this pic,
Charlene and Sandy headed on the road for Cape Cod.
I hope that have a wonderful trip and am so tickled that they came
to Connecticut to spend some time with me.
Thanks, Charlene.....you truly warmed my heart!!!!
