Strangers in the Night

About six weeks ago I received a payment through PayPal for three child's necklaces.  I had posted some children's necklaces on my RV Vagabonds/Crystal Cachet web site about a year ago as an attempt to generate interest in  my jewelry that I made as a hobby, but got no response so I thought I had removed the web page from my site.

Lo and behold, here is this order for necklaces that I didn't have made up and no longer had the envelopes for shipping, etc.  I returned the payment with a note that the website should have been removed and that I no longer made jewelry as a business.

The young lady replied that it was a shame, as the necklaces she ordered were meant for the flower girls for a friend's wedding and they would have been perfect for the occasion.

WELL!  Talk about hitting the guilt button!  I emailed the young lady and told her for flower girls I would make the necklaces and so I did.  Today I received another email from the young woman, but this email included a picture of the bride and groom with the two flower girls wearing my necklaces.  How sweet was that?  And that was the reason I originally wanted to sell my jewelry for young girls; because all little girls enjoy a little bit of bling.

It made my day.  Today I make jewelry only for my own pleasure or as gifts for friends.  But it's nice to know that it made someone else's day too.

What a lovely story. You were so sweet to have fulfilled that bride's wishes for her flower girls.
Thanks for commenting on the elephant seal post. I would not have been able to keep my hands off of the lovely animal either. But I also would not have had the courage to sit that close to a bull elephant seal, sleeping or not.
So you are not far from here on your map. I am just up the road in Albuquerque.
Happy trails and thanks for stopping by.
I know from Skippy's that you play the vert word. phers. I also wanted to touch the seal's phers.
