It's Three or More Tuesday hosted by The Gypsy's Corner. Stop by and see what everyone's threes are!
My Threes are three fellow bloggers that I've been able to meet . . .
First and foremost is Mrs. Blandings. When and where I found her I'm not sure but adore her blog and she has been my mentor in my blogging adventures. I got to meet her last October when we both were at Ina Garten's book signing. Alas, I had my camera and why I didn't get a picture of Patricia and I, I'm not sure. Not thinking, I would call it. But I do have this photo of Mrs. Blandings -- it graced the front page of the Kansas City Star House and Home section yesterday. Because there was a blurb on page two about Patricia's article in Elle Decor.
My second blog friend I got to meet last Saturday when Nancy from Acorn Cottage came to tour Linderhof's garden. A quick email before she left so I knew she was coming. And there she was in my garden! Even though it was the first time I had met her, we had emailed a lot as well and I am an avid fan of her blog. It didn't feel like I was meeting her for the first time but rather that we were old friends that hadn't gotten together in a while!
It was a great time and I enjoyed taking her for a tour inside Linderhof! My camera -- up by the computer and although Nancy took lots of pictures, it seemed that I, once again, forgot to get a picture of us together. This picture is from her blog.
And then on Sunday, out in the garden, a girl walked up to me, asked if I wrote Lines from Linderhof, and introduced herself as Carrie from The Art and Flair of Being Domestic. I was gobsmacked! She doesn't live 100 miles north as does Nancy and Mrs. Blandings. She lives far far away! And yet, here she was in my garden! I was a bit amazed! I took her and her family on a tour of Linderhof. Again, it was more meeting an old friend than a new friend.
She didn't have her camera either but she had her phone and so she took a picture. It's nice to have a picture of Carrie in Linderhof's garden.
Alas, my camera was still upstairs and once again I missed an opportunity for a photo with a fellow blogger.
But Carrie had her phone and her kind husband took a picture . . . .
Of both Carrie and I! Although my third blogger friend whom I've met, this is the first picture of friends together!
