The Chapel Market

Just one word sums this show up...WOW!!!! I can't begin telling all of you, how much fun I had at the Chapel Market yesterday. Layla...the lady behind the wonderful blog "THE LETTERED COTTAGE"....out did herself on this one. She put together one awesome event and it was right here in my neck of the woods...lucky...lucky ME!!! I insisted on getting there two hours early, my friend that I went with thought I was crazy. Then, a hour later, she was thanking me. We were the third group of gals that arrived on the front porch. If you don't already know Marsha from the blog, Marsha's Creekside here and congratulate her on being first in line. Yes ladies, she got there before the sun came up and I am glad she did, because we got to meet each other and chat for awhile. You know how the saying goes...the early bird gets the worm...well today it was sooooo true. As we were all chatting about why we came, and what we were hoping to purchase from these ladies inside, they started coming out to chat with the early birds!!! I had been e-mailing with a couple of them, so they knew that I would be there, and I am sure that they were not surprise to find this thrifty gal at the first of the line. Okay ladies, let's see who all I got to meet up with and what it looked like inside and outside of the chapel.

                          First out the door was Rhoda @Southern Hospitality.
                          I was so very happy to met Rhoda...the two of us have
                          been blogging for over four years it was time
                          to finally meet up. Just a heads up...Rhoda's blog was
                          the first blog that I followed. Thank you Rhoda for inspiring
                          me. Then, out came MISS PERSONALITY...Kari Anne @
                          Thistlewood Farms...smiling ear to ear!!! Now, that was not
                          a surprise to all of us who follow her blog. It was so much
                          fun chatting with the two of these sweet and talented gals.

                     Next out the door...any guesses who this is?

                     was Marian...MISS MUSTARD SEED!!!
                              Marian and I started out blogging at the same time,
                              and I still get a laugh out of one of her early e-mails
                              to me. It read like this..."let's hit this big blog world
                              together Linda". Like I told her yesterday, Marian,
                                       you left me back at the starting gate:)

              Oh yes...I am still treading water, and I'm okay with that. I am
              so happy that Marian has been very successful and has come so
              far in just four years. This success, is well deserved by this super
                                       sweet and talented gal.

                                Be sure to come by later this week to see
                                what I purchased from my blog friend...
                                       MISS MUSTARD SEED!!!!!

                         If you liked it, you better not think twice, because
                                   things were flying out the doors!

                     Mary from Urban Farmgirl...had a wonderful booth full
                                                 of goodies.   

                    The lady with the big idea...Layla!!! I am so glad that
                     this famous blogger and I live in the same state.

                                           Lot's of shopping!

                                        Lot's of book signing too!!!

                          I was surprise to see so many men there.

                           As you can tell, the two of us were happy
                           to meet up. Best of all, Heather @The Picket
                           Fence, and I, will see each other again this
                           Saturday in Atlanta at the Country Living Show.
                           Heather will be doing a demo at the show on
                           Saturday morning, sharing some DIY Christmas
                           trees. Looking forward to this one!

                Another sweet blog friend...Susan @Maple and Magnolia.
                Thank you Mary from Urban Farmgirl, for bringing Susan
                                              with you.

                               A BIG THANKS to Susan for helping
                               me find my size in this super cute tee.
                                  I wore it out to dinner last night:)

                                            Beautiful venue...don't
                                                   you agree?

                                     THE WATERS community is
                                        very charming indeed!!!

                                      I could see myself living here after
