When Worlds Collide

When I got home from work yesterday, I saw a box waiting for me marked "Fragile" on the side. I knew the handwriting instantly.

"Did I order something from Ellen and I just don't remember?"

(The backstory is that Ellen and I are college friends. She got me started blogging back in 2003. She gave up her own blog but her creative presence is still felt in her Etsy shop.)

When I opened the package, I saw one of Ellen's whimsical figures that I had been coveting:

Yes, Sylvia is now all mine. Thanks to my good friend Gary L. who worked with my friend Ellen to choose something special from her shop.  He is a dear friend from my eight years in Denver. Gary used my blog to track Ellen down and get me a truly unique Christmas gift.  Isn't it great when two parts of your life collide to create something so wonderful?!!!

What a thoughtful post. I love Sylvia!
