Last Saturday I had a craft show at my home, selling items I have created and painted. It was a huge success, but the highlight of my day was meeting a blog reader who lives about 90 miles west from me!
Peggy and I connected through my blog years ago and correspond every now and then through email. I have an email list of clients, friends and interested people in my craft and she happens to be on that list, so when I sent out an email blast last week, she decided to surprise me so that we could finally meet in person!! And what a delightful surprise that was for me!!

Peggy even surprised me with a lovely gift:
And there is even more to the story:
A few years ago I had a garage sale and a pretty young woman spotted a table and asked "Any chance you are Pandora's Box?" (She lived about 60 mile east of me ) She recognized the table from a blog that her mother was reading regularly. The young woman bought the table for her mother. A few days later, I got an email from Peggy, telling me how much she loved the table!! It was Peggy's daughter!!
It is such a small world and I love meeting my blog readers! Blogging has created a circle of friends for me, some that unfortunately I might never get to meet in person. It has just enriched my life with relationships and camaraderie that could not have been found anywhere else!!
So, to Peggy, and my readers, I hope our friendships continue to blossom!
