Buckeye Bloggers Get Together

On Saturday the Buckeye Bloggers met once again, this time in Tipp City. Here we are in front of the beautiful fireplace in the Coldwater Cafe. Yes, there is a fireplace behind us.
Not sure why this picture is so grainy, sorry, it was my camera but I didn't take the picture. I think this is the only group picture. The bottom row is Jo (L) and our ringleader Sue(R). In the back row from left to right , Sue, Pam, me, Pam. That's right two Sues and two Pams. We are missing a few faces. Just being an Ohio Blogger gets you in this group of crazy girls.
What did we do besides eat? We went shopping, hah, imagine that. A few antique and vintage stores. We got to see lots of Chalk Paint in one store. The owner had painted several items with different colors. That was fun to see the colors up close. We purchased old camers, a toy high chair, toy pink retro kitchen set, baskets, suitcases, blocks, and other treasures. It was a fun day but it was HOT.
The great thing about blogging is the people you meet. You meet real people that have real lives (some are really busy lives, he, he) and real families. We have different styles and likes but we all blend together. The best part is that these people become our friends. My grandmother made a sampler that said," Make new friends, keep the old, one is silver the other gold." Thank you new friends for a great time.

And all but one of you are BLOND!!!

What a great photo and what a great day you had. Nice that your 'ring-leader' is able to round up most of you for a bonding day together.

Sounded like a memory was made!

Hugs
Jan

How fun. Neat that you all get together like that. I am having lunch with a fellow blogger that we figured out from each other's posts lives only a couple of miles from me.

Debby, didn't we just have a grand ol' time? I'm glad we weren't "too busy" to take time out to raise some cain! Pam from Cincy called me "fun and feisty!" tee hee... I think that was being generous. :-) Always fun to be with you!!

Came here from Sue's (Rabbit Run) post about your recent outing!
I was just at the Coldwater Cafe last night; it's my favorite restaurant.
Okay, I'm an Ohio blogger too, how do I get in on your fun?

What a grand day, Debby! It's great fun to visit with blogging buddies, isn't it? I just met my first blogger friends this year, and we hit it off immediately!

And thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving lovely birthday wishes!It's much appreciated, coming from a spirited woman like yourself...:)

What a fun gathering that must have been. I had to sing the last line of your post ~ that's an old girl scout song.

Pam said...

I had a great time. It was great to finally meet you in person! And I blame the grainy photo on the server who took it! Plus she must have had it on a weird setting that adds a few pounds - lol.

Miss Merry said...

I would love to join the Buckeye Bloggers next year! It looks like you had a wonderful time. Thanks for stopping by for a visit

Kimberly said...
