~ Shopping with Blogging friends ~


Happy Fat Tuesday Friends!

Big response to yesterdays post asking people to remove the word verification. I was surprised at how many didn’t even know they had it on there.

From now on… when I come to a blog with word verification I’m just going to ask the person if they knew it was on there and then link back to my post so they can see how to remove it. Hopefully seeing all those comments you all left will convince them to do so. :) Feel free to do the same. :)

This past Saturday was spent shopping with blogging friends! And we had so much fun! Old friends getting together. Earlene came to my house Saturday morning and had coffee with the Primcats and then we headed down south to meet up with Cindy and her sister Vicky at Primitive Blessings in Orient, Ohio.


Pam’s shop was my favorite of the day! So beautiful and springy! Garden inspirations everywhere. Plus her shop is just so fun to look through. Always something new to see! Everyone left with tons of goodies! If you haven’t seen Pam’s shop yet this Spring head to her blog and check out the pics! You will not be disappointed!


After we headed outside and took some pics at the creek beside the shop. So pretty!

Here’s Vicky, Cindy and Earlene.


And Here’s Vicky, Cindy and me.


Next we headed off to Bob evens for a serious gabfest and some food! Found out me, Cindy and Earlene are all on Weight Watchers which made for some interesting math at lunch trying to count points. lol!

Next we headed to North Shore Primitives. A stunning shop in Washington Court House, Ohio. This shop is filled with tons of Prim furniture that I drool over every time I go there. Maybe someday. :) I picked up a few small wares here and we headed to our last stop of the day.

The Olde Farmstead at Tanger Outlet mall. I didn’t pick up anything there but Cindy got an amazing treasure! You will have to wait until she posts tomorrow to see!

Then I dragged everyone down to the Pottery Barn because someone gave me a $50.00 gift card to there for Christmas. If you can even believe it I didn’t even find one thing to spend that card on.

From there it was time to part ways. Hugs all around until next time! You can bet there will be a next time too. Sooner rather than Later I am sure. We just had so much fun.

When there is a next time I will be sure to let you all know so if you want to join us you can! We would love to have you!

You can see more pictures at both Earlene and Cindy’s blogs so stop over and check them out too! Earlene took some pics of the Primcats too.

I will be back tomorrow to show you my treasures!

Until next time…

Carmen and the Primcats

Hi Carmen,
Sounds like you all had a fabulous time!
Wouldn't it be great to set up a weekend shopping convention and get to meet all our blogging friends.
I would love it!
But since we have friends all over the USA and Canada, I don't see it happening.
It sure would be a blast though.

So I take it the Pottery Barn is expensive?
I've never been to one.
Can't wait to see your goodies.
You always find the best treasures.


Ps. I agree about the WV, big huge Pain! ;)

My Sara shops Pottery Barn but I can't imagine finding much for $50. She isn't a prim shopper or even a budget shopper. She does find nice things but not my style. I like OLD things, like me!
I dream of meeting up with some of my prim gals. Maybe a Midwest meeting in a huge park in the fall? I would be game and love to meet face-to-face and share our wares, our stories and a great picnic!

Holly said...

Looks like so much fun! Mom mentioned the trip to me while we were in the mountains and wondered how much fun you girls were having. Would love to be able to join you all sometime! Maybe when Darbee Rae is a little older and could tolerate a LONG car ride. Ha!

Such a nice day you had shopping!!! I agree so much with you about the word verification! AND your blog showed me how to get rid of it months ago! Thank you! I really am beginning to hate having to leave comments with people who have the word verification on their blogs. It's really becoming hard to read the words! Hope you're having a nice day!

Merry Wind Farm said...

It sure sounds like you had a wonderful time shopping! I really hate it that I couldn't go...but my wallet is happy! LOL! Looking forward to seeing all your treasures...

Dawn said...

Carmen, thanks for stopping by my blog and letting me know about the comments verification. I think I changed it, it is hard to make out the words isnt it? Thanks again for stopping by!

Fran. said...

Carmen THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!! How awesome you got to shop with blog friends!! That would be so much fun!! Can't wait to see the pics!!! XO Fran.

cynthia lee designs said...

We sure did have fun!! I can't wait til we all go out again.
I lost 5 lbs on my first week with WW. :) So it was okay that you carried my treasure from The Olde Farmstead for activity points. LOL...

earlene said...

OK Carmen and Cindy I have to tell you I lost 3 pounds! I was so happy.
And Carmen I bought some Special K chips last night and they taste great. Just enough to get rid of that crave.
Big Hug!

Sounds like you had a great time!

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

Glad you all had a fantastic time...and so many shops! Well I would have been there with you all 'counting points' as I'm doing it too!

Oh I am so glad you had a good time meeting up and shopping with some blogging friends. It looks like you had such a great time. -Steph-

Firecracker Kid said...

I did see y'all on Cindy's blog too. Look like a wonderful day for prim shopping. I see Pam has a coupon good through Saturday too. Road trip?

TheCrankyCrow said...

Looks and sounds like bunches of fun. I haven't had a good girls' shopping day in a long, long, while....And, since I was catching up from the top down, I already saw the wonderful goodies you scored. Good luck with the eggs and feathers and kitty combination....I live with two big egg and carrot thieves. :o) Robin
