Connecting With Friends From Afar

Have you not had a secret yearning to meet some of the bloggers
 from the blogging platform in person.
Well I had the honour of meeting Poppy - Poppy View
Judith - Lavender Cottage and Karen - My Little Home & Garden.
We had a wonderful time chatting over pots of tea, dainty sandwiches,
scones with devonshire cream and jam
followed by an assortment of delectable desserts in a
quaint place called The Old Curiosity Tea Shop in Markham, Ontario.

Teapots lined the walls...

in every form you could image and each table had a lovely posy in a teacup.

Here we are, starting from the left Judith, Karen, Poppy and myself
sitting down for tea and wonderful conversation.

Sharing with Mary at Little Red House

I wish everyone an enjoyable week!!!

Love your new header. I have met such wonderful ladies through the blog and to meet them would be a wonderful treat. They are all over the US, Canada, Holland. England, Ireland and Scotland. I follow one close to home. You ladies will probably be friends forever.

Fun fun! I'm glad you had the chance to meet them in person.

Jen, I love the effect you used with the photos, suggesting a nod to times past and tea shared by other women over the years.

It was a real treat meeting you!

Oh how wonderful that must have been. I have only met one of my blogging friends in person,but found her to be a kindred spirit.

Karen said...

How fun to meet blogging friends! I've been to that tea shop. I love it. Great collages.

Hell Jen
A wonderful union of lovely bloggers!
I've read three posts now and just have Poppy's to see!
You photos are lovely Jen - they have a certain softness that goes with a charming old english Tea Shopppe!
On Judith's post I eyed your camera - it looks like a serious piece of equipment to me! I hope you will tell us all about it in one of your future posts!
Lovely to catch up at Mary's Mosaic Monday.

Hi Jenn,

Your beautiful photo, echoing elegance and charm, is a lovely reminder of our wonderful teatime, and a fond memory of my trip 'abroad'. Really enjoyed meeting you, Judith and Karen and catching up in person. Such a special day!

Have a great week! We're expecting snow tomorrow!

How wonderful. I bet you all had a great time. I think it would be fun to do something like that too.

I love the sepia-antique tones you have processed these photos with. I saw Poppy's version of this story too! It must have been wonderful to meet blogging friends.
Have a wonderful week.
