Three Lindas In Vermont

I'm having a great time in Vermont! Highlight of my week was getting to meet, face to face, my Etsy blogger teammate, Linda Wheelock, or as we all affectionately know her, Mrs. Moo. She was a great hostess and took me all around her 'neck of the woods'.

Our first stop was to an award winning cheese farm (is that the way you say it, Linda?) called Neighborly Farms of Vermont, which her friend owns. The owners name is also 'Linda'. So we took this picture out in front of her business. Left to right, Linda the business owner, Linda (me)Pruitthandcrafts blogger, and Linda the Spottedcowsoaps blogger (Mrs. Moo). Linda and her family have a nice little business (probably not so little, since she sells to Trader Joes!) Anyway, I didn't get to see them making cheese, since it was the day that they clean the entire cheese making room, making sure that everything is spotless. Watching them in the process was very interesting.

Linda (Mrs. Moo) then took me to a little General Store in Randolph Center VT. The owner there was another of Linda's friends, a volunteer firefighter who once helped save her house during a fire! The store had the old wood flooring, and everything that you might need, including local maple syrup, and honey. It also had a quaint area around the pot belly stove with chairs in a circle that housed the morning coffee klatch. I bought several lovely postcards.


Next, was a tour of Randolf, where Linda (Mrs. Moo) lives! Beautiful little town! Lovely old homes and buildings, all in immaculately kept conditions. I was so impressed with the homes in Vermont, as all of them seem to be well kept with beautiful flowers everywhere in gardens and pots with lovely manicured lawns!

I will leave you today, with another picture of the two blogger Lindas and Mrs. Moo's son Josh. Thank you Linda, for a wonderful afternoon in the Randolph area of Vermont!

((((Linda)))) What an awesome blog post. I couldn't have said it better. I really did enjoy our afternoon together. Everyone around here thinks it is so cool how we met online, half a world apart from each other, and got to meet in person. It's not every day one has that privilege. I felt like I had known you for years and we had been reunited as long lost friends. I would do it again in a heartbeat!!!

How wonderfully exciting! How did this happen? I'm so out of the loop, and envious... New England holds a very special place in my heart... did you see how lush everything was in the background?
