Virtual Meet and Greet!

Hello and welcome! One of my blogging besties Jann, over at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson is hosting a blogging Meet & Greet.  For those who are unable to attend in person, she has extended an invitation for a virtual meet and greet link party. The party goes live tomorrow morning, so come along--maybe you'll learn something new about your favorite bloggers and make a few friends along the way...

Perfect pink rose

Here are a few things you may not know about me:
  1. I recently celebrated 2 years of blogging--in fact the rose photo, taken by Youngest Daughter was my very first blog header!
  2. I often use my time in the garden as quiet time to pray and meditate.  My own private sanctuary...
Comfy garden hammock

My idea of the perfect weekend is a combination of leisurely shopping yard sales or thrift shops, puttering in my garden-- which usually involves some sort of DIY project, and connecting with family and friends!  

Fun gardening boots
Ginger Grand + gardening = fun, fun, fun! Like my boots? Find them here

What does your perfect weekend look like?  If you are new here, I would love to meet you! Drop me a comment and I'll respond by email or visit your blog!

  1. Yes Cecilia ... love your boots and I notice how cute they were when you were out thrifting last week in the rain. Was wishing I had some. The photo of the pink rose is beautiful. Hope you and Aimee are having a good time.

  6. I would love to sit with you in your garden. It looks so beautiful and serine. You are such a beautiful lady and I am so happy that you are my blogging friend. Hgs, Jo

  7. I love the photos of your garden, Cecilia, and especially the pink rose. It's nice to get to know you a little better here.

  8. Loved learning more about you, what a great idea for a party! I love your blog and all your wonderful thrifty finds.

  9. Cecilia, I love that we both get solace in our garden! I always love seeing the fun projects that you do. Those boots are so darn cute! I have a pair almost that exact color out on my deck. I picked them up at a yard sale for $2. Amazing score on the typewriter! Thanks so much for sharing at the 'Meet and Greet'. Small number of link ups, but hoping maybe we'll see more after SYC tomorrow.

  10. It's so nice to meet a fellow thrifter! Thrift stores are me! Recently, travel has been my escape so you can meet me by hearing how I experience new places

  11. What a pretty rose from your first blog header! Love your goodies, especially the typewriter...what a deal at 25Cents!!! Thanks for stopping by to share at Vintage Inspiration Party.

  12. Hi! My name is Liz and I am from El Paso, TX. Love estate sales and reading. Love the typewriter

  13. 25 cents!! Crazy. I love finds like that; often they turn into great stories. That's half the fun isn't it? Telling the story about how you "caught the big one." Loved learning more about you Cecilia. I always thoroughly enjoy my visits to your blog :)

  14. Such a delightful post, my friend. I am so glad you started blogging because it allowed us to meet :)

    Thank you for sharing with Roses of Inspiration. May you have a beautiful day!
