I have talked to Linda often in the past two year via our blogs and emails. We found that we had several things in common – Both of our families are huge Auburn fans – we’re both G.R.I.T.S. – we both love the thrill of thrifting – we each have two daughters the same ages - we are both Believers – Well, you get it!
I had the pleasure of having Linda and Mr. C. C. right here at Blue Creek Home yesterday for brunch!! I am surprised they did not turn around and run the minute G-Man opened the door.
This is just part of the scenario that was happening inside “Dysfunction Junction” when they arrived:
G-Man had just discovered he had lost an important computer document - 5 hours of work on Sat. had disappeared!
Alex had done all of the food planning and preparation and left her catering post to help her panicked father.
I was still getting ready, and baby Mason was standing in his playpen screaming his head off!
Oh yeah, the four dogs were kenneled but could still be heard through the walls!!!
I would have just said, “Okay, these people are nuts , I’m outta here!!!
But, G-Man answered the door and cheerfully invited them in.
I rushed out of the bedroom, grabbed the screaming baby out of the playpen(still in his pj’s) and tried to figure out which of the three buzzers going off on stoves and microwaves should be addressed first!!!
I handed unhappy baby to Al – said a quick hello- and got Alex back in the kitchen to check on the food.
I got Mason back from his Papa so I could get him dressed and his diaper had dropped down half way down his sweet little booty pretty much in Mr. C.C and Linda’s faces!!!
I just kept thinking, This is probably going to make the headlines on a post at Coastal Charm and the title is going to be “Brunch at the House of Crazy”!!!
Of course, Mr. and Mrs. C.C. were the perfect guests. Brunch was served ( great job, Alex!) and we talked like four old friends around the table for a couple of hours.
I felt as though I knew Linda already. She was even more beautiful and adorable in person.
So, thanks to Linda and Mr. C.C. for an enjoyable first experience at meeting blog friends.

Look at these two little beauties!!! Together, they cost less than $10.00!
I love angels and cherubs
This sweet vintage compote was marked $8.00, but the gentleman let me have it for $6.00
They are wearing laurel wreaths with flowers on their little heads
I also adore pillows, and…
ruffledy fabric flowers
…especially when they are all together!!!
Blurry, but beautiful!
They will both be staying with me at Blue Creek Home.
