After months of anticipation and waiting, it was time for Natasha to come for a visit! She spent two days with Jeff and me here in Connecticut. It was such a pleasure to have her here and we were both honored that she was able to make a CT stop. She is on such a whirlwind tour! We took her to Woodbury, the antiques capital of the state. Tons of stores but these are not the places where you can pick up a few things at bargain prices! We went into one store and saw a small hutch marked $23,000! It was still a lot of fun to browse and get inspiration for future projects.
Natasha brought us some adorable goodies. Here is some yummy soaps, a Thanksgiving towel (now I have two Thanksgiving decorations!), and a stuffed kangaroo for Baby Girl.
She brought Jeff a boomerang, pen and key chain set, and playing cards. She also brought Baby Girl some adorable onesies, and this cute as can be handmade koala hand puppet. I love her posts on her local lavender farm and she brought me some oh so indulgent foot soak - can't wait to give it a try!
Love vintage aprons and she brought two - in my favorite colors!
She also gave me this gorgeous necklace. She really spoiled us!
Jeff was playing Guitar Hero and Natasha was sneaking a peek.
Enjoying some yummy cheeseburgers and her first mozzarella sticks. I also brought her to historic Wooster Street for some authentic New Haven pizza and Italian pastries. Jeff made a gourmet lobster meal for dinner (even displaying the live lobsters to Natasha's horror!) and a yummy New England breakfast. My mom came over with an apple pie and chocolate chip cookies - we certainly were not hungry! My sister brought some lovely flowers.
Isn't she adorable? She is as delightful in person as she comes across on her blog. She is now off to visit with Heather and Karla before heading to Silver Bella. Can't wait to see all of the photos of her trip!
