A Blogger's Brunch

What a wonderful day I had yesterday.  It was the blogger's brunch at Penny's home.  For any of you who have never met Penny make sure you go and visit her at The Comforts Of Home . Three of us from Charlotte headed out early in the morning on our adventure. We talked all the way there, enjoying the beautiful scenery along the way and arrived a half hour early. Penny made us all feel so welcome! Her home is so inviting and beautiful.  She is a talented mosaic artist and a great cook too.  She served a delicious brunch: 4 different quiches, still hot from the oven.

 Homemade pumpkin bread and fresh tossed salad, all served buffet style in her beautiful kitchen.
 Penny invited anyone in North Carolina to ocme for brunch and  14 of us plus husbands showed up!  Aren't we a great looking group?  So do you want to know who everyone is?   
Front row: Sam, Penny, me, Diane, Penny our wonderful hostess, Donnie and Kim

What a delightful group of women.  We talked and laughed and took pictures of each other.  It was quite funny to see 14 women walking around Penny's home snapping photos of everything and everyone.   Then we went shopping to some of Penny's favorite places.

  Here we all are as we descend upon The Screen Door.

 It was filled with all sorts of fun things. I love this chair!

And these boots would be fun to wear!

We had a fabulous time and by the end of the day we were all tired and happy! Here are the 2 Penny's taking a rest.

Thanks Penny for a beautiful day.

  1. Looks like a lovely visit, a chance to connect with new friends.

  2. Hi Rhondi, Thanks for such a lovely post about our wonderful day. It was such great fun meeting everybody and I planted the little bulbs you gave us this morning. Have a great Sunday.

  3. Hi Rhondi!
    What great photos you took!! I had a blast and I was so happy that you and all of the others were able to come to my home!

    Thank you so much for the bulbs! I am planting them this afternoon!


  4. Rhondi,
    Thanks for the pictures from your fun gathering! I felt like I "know" all of you a little better now. Fun!

  5. Rhondi, you are all beautiful. I am so glad you had a wonderful time - and I knew you would.

    I was thinking about all of you yesterday.

  6. Sounds like such a wonderful day. Love meeting other bloggers. Hugs, Marty

  7. Hi Rhondi,
    It was so much fun meeting everyone yesterday! You got some beautiful pictures. I hope you don't mind if a borrow a couple because my group picture was not good. I also planted my bulbs this morning. It was a most thoughtful gift. I will be following you.

  8. I meant to add, let me know if it is OK to use two of your pictures. Thanks.

  9. Thank you for sharing your fun day together with us. I wanted to be there SO much! It was a bit far to travel from Oregon to North Carolina but I know it would have been worth it! Great pictures.

  10. Hi Rhondi, Thank you for sharing your wonderful day with us-what a treasure to meet so many bloggers, have an incredible lunch and shop to boot. I've gotten to know two blogging gals who live about 45 min from me but that is about it-would be fun to do this type of get together. Penny looks like an incredible hostess.
    Hugs, Noreen
