"This and That"

Growing up in my small town, there was a lovely woman who wrote a chatty little column in the weekly newspaper called "This n' That by Pansy Penner."  In that column you might find out which friends had paid her a visit, who had their in-laws over for dinner and what they served, what former high school student in town won an award 15 years ago, who was ill that week, who went on vacation, who celebrated a birthday or anniversary, and any other news of equal importance to her and others in town!  It was a way to keep up on things you would not find out anywhere else, and sometimes it was just a hoot to read.   Stories about gatherings often ended with this phrase, "A fun time was had by all!"   It's funny how after all these years, some of these words, phrases, and stories have remained with me.   Just little bits and pieces of this and that...

That's what today's blog post is...some bits of news I want to make sure you hear about!

I do so love a chatty, catch up post! So thrilled you got to meet some other designers. I did the same this summer, and it was very special for me, since I've never been to any of the shows. I've got one project completed, and the other one halfway for our reveal!
Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Nice post. It felt like walking over to a friend's house through the crunchy fall leaves to have a cup of coffee and a chat.
