So let me tell you the "real" story of Lady Sparkle and Magnolia Blossom's adventure...
Although the day was dreary and rainy, when I arrived at Lady Sparkle's house the sun was shining, there was a rainbow, and the birds were singing. Well not really, I'm just really good at BS, but
her smile sure brightened my day.
A good hostess, LS served me a piece of her Crustless Cranberry Pie. So as not to be rude, I took a little nibble. Well it was just so awful that I had to eat it quickly to get it over with. (More
BS, it was delicious and a very welcome breakfast of champions after a long drive.) We proceeded to Aldi's to pick up some snacks for our adventure, and of course, cranberries for LS. Thank God they had plenty on hand. Lady Sparkle throwing a conniption fit
in the middle of the store wouldn't have been a pretty site.
Anyhoo, we were on our way to Nashville, IN in Brown County - a very artsy, craftsy community. Wow, no kidding... it was awesome. Blown glass, stained glass, hand crafted furniture, pottery, jams,
jellies and more. Oh, and wine... Mustn't forget the beverages.
Here's my Lady Sparkle! She really "sparkles" doesn't she?
Not only does she sparkle in the daytime, she sparkles at night too! This gives the phrase "Sparkle Britches" a whole new meaning! I might add that I don't have Magnolia Blossoms across MY rear end.
Lady Sparkle already relayed our time at the Muddy Boots Cafe. Seriously, I was waiting for Maynard G. Krebbs to make an appearance with his bongos.
When we posted that we were in Nashville, many kind folks here volunteered to watch news reports and gather bail money if needed. LS did make a visit to the jail, but she was released on her own recognizance.
A few more cute photos... Candice - this first one's for you!
(My kitchen's messy, how about yours?)
Ahem, a little Magnolia magic...
A great lunch in Nashville, IN... Bacon & cheese quiche with ham & potato soup. Yum!
She's the Thelma to my Louise... (without driving over the cliff at the end!)
We had an absolutely wonderful time and we are thrilled that we had the chance to share with you. For those that may not know, Lady Sparkle and I roomed together at the Vegas Blowout. Only living
3 hours away, I knew I had to get together again before bad weather hit. I am so glad I did. We are already looking forward to the next meet and who else we can drag along! Thanks for stopping by!
