Every once in awhile we start really making friends with our blog buddies and get it in our heads that, hey, wouldn't it be great to actually MEET some of them? Well, my blog buddy Anna of "Chickens In The Basement" and I have decided to do just that. We're having a meet-up (click on the word "meet-up" to link to Anna's blog with more info) in Birmingham, Alabama and you just might want to consider joining us. We're mainly going to hit as many thrifts stores and flea markets as we can, but there are also OTHER reasons to visit Bee-ham. Here's one, just an hour north. I've been to the Ave Maria Grotto and it is one of the most amazing places I've ever visited.
