Having a blast in the heartland,
Springfield, Missouri, visitng my bestie
Debra of Common Ground.

We've been shopping, and eating and shopping,
and laughing and shopping, and then there was
this bit of drudgery we were subjected to
yesterday afternoon...

Debra has a fabulous home and a fabulous pool.
And yes, Mr. Twig has a farmer's tan.

And yesterday at lunch,
I got to meet some of Debra's junking besties
from Springfield, Kenda and Jan of
Leola's Vintage Home and Garden.

What a gorgeous shop!
I took lots and lots of photos,
so perhaps I'll share a few in the days ahead.
I'm thinking Leola's is such a treasure that it
deserves a magazine feature, so I'm
exploring the possibilities there, too!

Off to St. Louis this morning to hang with
the one and only
Elizabeth Maxson

See you again
next week!
