What a small world!

It’s late and I am tired, but I wanted to share a quick story with all my blog friends! Over the last couple of weeks I have been planning a Fantasy of Trees type of event to benefit Relay for Life. In my search for vendors I went to ETSY. Now ya’ll know I heart ETSY and even though I have had some not so pleasant experiences…….I still shop ETSY faithfully!

Anyway I was contacting all sellers from the Knoxville and Oak Ridge area and have had an awesome response. I can’t believe how many vendors are coming just from ETSY! Ok back to the point…………………………………….

One vendor emailed me back to say that she was actually originally from my area and would love to be a vendor at the event. We talked back and forth through about 20 emails and finally she said Ummmmmm is your mama named C***** and your sister named C*****……

I said ummmmmm yea………….

She said then is your daddy named S****?

Again I said yes……… by this time I was racking my brain trying to figure out who this was.

She said well my daddy was your daddy’s brother, but he died a long time ago………….

Can you imagine how shocked I was to find my long lost cousin after years and years of no contact? And to find her on ETSY of all places! It really is a small world after all.

I am super excited to see her, and I know my daddy will be too.

Before I forget here is her website check out her amazing creations!

Aww Tiff, you are too sweet! I still can't believe how we re-connected. It was meant to be, that's all I can say.

That's a really cool story! So now we can credit Etsy with reuniting long lost loved ones. Yet another reason to love it.
