Tea Time Thursday # 18....Visiting Robin with LaVonne

You know you have a special friend, a Kindred Spirit, when you visit her home and find teacups hanging on the wall! For this Tea Time Thursday, I'm going back a month to blog about my friend Robin. When LaVonne was out for her visit, she wanted to go to Robin's house this time. Robin is on our Tasha list and we had met her a few years ago at Jane's (also a Tashette) home in Olympia WA.
LaVonne and Robin have been friends for quite some time and they both have property and animals. Robin graciously invited us to her home for lunch. She was so excited and nervous as she doesn't get too many visitors at her lovely home. She lives in Eatonville WA.

I plugged the directions into my iPhone and away we went. The weather had turned cold and wet. The directions took us the "scenic way"...beautiful but a big long. I had no idea where the heck we were, but we finally arrived. As I was driving, I thought a rain and snow mix was hitting my window...yes indeed! We  looked up and saw the snow sticking on the higher hills. Amazing. Robin lives in just the most beautiful area!

Her home is just so fun! Filled with many treasures and collectibles! Of course LaVonne and I were delighted!!!! Isn't this cute felted bird, a robin, adorable!

She has bees and sheep, so it was fun to see all the items in her home showing off just those things near and dear to her heart.

Here she is outside of her home...even the porch was decorated with all kinds of fun things!

Lunching with my Tasha friends! Thanks again Robin for lunch. Enjoy a peek at some of her goodies.

After lunch, she brought down the most beautiful quilt that her friend made for her! It was just fantastic. What a gift. Robin is also a quilter.

A few little friends hanging around. Very cute...all kinds of things tucked here and there.

Before we left, we went outside to see her sheep and her garden and enjoy a little tour of her property.
I didn't get a picture of her sweet hubby Bill...what a good sport and sooo funny. Great story teller.

Robin's chicken coop! Lucky chickens to live at this house. She just decorates everything.

This little building is going to be her store when she gets it together. It is so cute and just perfect for a little shoppe. We found out that Robin has had 2 retail shoppes in her career. No wonder we all got along....all 3 of us had retail stores!

She got really sad when we were getting ready to leave. It made me sad to say good bye, but now that we know how to get to her home, we would love to visit again someday. She had sweet little gifts for us too! She gave us different directions to return home and oh, so much easier. What a great day we had. It's so fun to go visiting. Thanks you so much dear Robin.
