LeAnn Stephenson, The Vintage Laundress, and her delightful family dropped by my New York apartment Saturday for a mini-brunch, bringing with her a magnificent bouquet of spring flowers, perfect for boosting my frigid spirits on a glacial winter afternoon.
You know, LeAnn is the first of my blogging pals to have stopped in for a visit. So you can imagine that I was a bit nervous at her seeing my home in person after having spent nearly a week in her beautiful abode while promoting The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details at the Round Top market last fall.
I pulled out my favorite printed tablecloth found at a thrift store in my hometown of Independence, Missouri; made a run to Whole Foods for mini-scones, muffins and coconut macaroons; and pulled out my 1970s wooden mushroom tray from J.C. Penney for serving up some cheese and crackers.
I was in such a fun frenzy before my guests' arrival and so intent on catching up during our short visit that I forgot to take pictures. But Leann really was here. I promise. And maybe she'll share with me some of the photographic evidence once she returns to Austin.
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous!
