Bloggers Meet Over Broken Dishes

Last week one of the blogs I regularly read, Cape of Dreams, started a new project.

Jessica has started a mosaic on the foundation of her house.

You know I'm a dish lover.

She solicited more dishes from her readers who live nearby.  Little did I know when I offered some dishes she was already in my neck of the woods (Maryland).

Jessica and her mother stopped by The Glade on their way back north. They’re cheery and chummy.  I hope you get to meet them one day, too.

Each of these dishes had a chip or crack.

She took a box of dishes which I hope will become part of her mosaic.

I hope these mostly white with green accents dishes will work into Jessica's color scheme.

In the meantime it was so great to meet someone I feel I already know after reading her blog posts.

Have you ever met someone long-distance then met them in person?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
