Ah yes, the Summer In Paris Retreat has arrived...

Shop, Crop, Drop

A couple posts back I blogged about buttons found in New England, just a hop, skip, and ten hours away from home.  Today was the second day for the Summer In Paris retreat in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia.  Well, guess who found some more buttons?  And so many other wonderful discoveries..........

But before I show and tell all, let me say there was great pre conference shopping (particular shops I will certainly blog about later) and a delightful tea at the Hillbrook Inn.  Tea was the perfect thing in August, as fall begins to round the corner for another season.  Seven guests, all attending the conference, conversed, laughed, ate, and began a very special kinship around a single table at the Inn.

Quaint and charming, nestled at the foothills of the Shenandoah Mountains, sits the Historic Hillbrook Inn.  Absolutely the best high tea ever taken.  This epiphany offered by moi, who had sipped Twinings with the Brits in London town many times.  Truely a worthwhile visit in an awesome setting, boasting a wonderfully tasty menu.

Now, I am new to the women of cropping and scrapbooking, but am connected at the hip with their energy and passion.  I never knew there existed entire groups of these paper, scissors, and ribbon loving women working until midnight on their ideas, sharing stories, supplies and spirit all in one place, creatively inspired.  I was so honored to be among them tonight, sharing my stories too and displaying my charms.  For a closer look at the venue check out this link. 

Many thanks to these wonderful women who bought a few.  How fabulous was that?
