A Fabulous Holiday in Florida

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

First of all I want to thank each and everyone of you my beautiful crafty friends who visited my blog and left some fabulous comments on my scheduled posts.  

You all make each and every day so special by your visits and comments.

Now you all know I went to meet my Facebook friend Deb in Florida for 2 weeks.
We have been friends for a while Skyping each other nearly every week so when she invited me to visit her of course I said yes!

That is one of the best decisions I have ever made. We got on like a house on fire!
We have spent the last 2 weeks laughing, crying and creating the most wonderful memories and I get to do it all again next year!

It was the most amazing holiday, just to spend each day doing what we wanted to do!
There were days spent at the beach, crafting, visiting Michael's (which was a bit disappointing to me) and Hobby Lobby (OMG I could have spent all day in this shop!), meeting up with another Facebook friend Rebecca and of course some sight seeing too.

A few pictures to share with you all.

Michael's a bit disappointed reminded me of Hobby Craft!


Oh my word what a shop, loved this place! 

Rebecca, Deb and I we met up in Madison (Rebecca's husband Sam joined us too) and enjoyed a meal together then a look around the quaint shops there! On our way home we stopped at Hobby Lobby in Tallahassee! I could have stayed here all day!

We visited a place called Seaside! I just adore this gate it is fabulous!

Wooden church in Seaside!

This was taken on the boat trip and is of the bay, I even managed to see some dolphins too!

I have more photographs but these are enough I think!
I shopped 'til I dropped and sent 3 boxes of goodies home! 

I hope you have enjoyed your visit!
Thank you for stopping by Today
