Meeting Clarice!

I had the great pleasure of meeting
the person behind the blog
and the author of her new book~
Clarice Fox-Hughes.

Her book signing was on Saturday
and I live only an hour or so away
so how could I not attend!
Held in the quaint little Seabold Hall
on beautiful Bainbridge Island.
A beautiful, sunny Autumn day shines down on
Seabold Hall

The handcrafted banner by Clarice

Delightful little vignettes throughout

A table set with dainty samplings
of Clarice's/Wren's recipes!

The charming Clarice herself
signing my copy of Wren Bay!
Clarice is no longer a faceless name
behind a blog title
or an aloof author of a
ho-hum book,
but a sweet, new friend
who just happens to write
from her heart those
things that endear us
to 'the making of a home.'

"That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home..."
From Titus 2

You are so blessed to have gone to Clarice's book signing party! I so wanted to go, but life got in the way of sad! It looks like you had a lovely time!

Aww...isn't Clarice wonderful?
She's in one of my groups and I just love her!
Can't wait to receive my book!
Isn't it a small world?

What fun! It looks like a lovely time was had by all. I've only been able to meet one of my bloggy friends. Almost met Becky when I was up north last week.

But would someday like to meet!
