Its a small world ............

It was Craft and Design Market in Havelock North today, a day of nice surprises.  While taking pictures of my stall I accidentally got this small angel caught in one of the snaps.  Just a passing customer, but such a little cutie, she looks just like one of those cards you get with little cherub children from about the 1920s.  Her pose was so perfect I could not resist using her photo.
My second surprise was chatting to a couple who had just arrived from Scotland to visit their son and his family that live in Havelock North.  I asked them where they were from and  they replied Selkirk.  One of my friends from University, Pamela belongs Selkirk, you don't know her do you, I said.  The lady burst out laughing, it seems Pamela's mum is her best friend.  What a small world it is, they have traveled half way around the world and the first person they chat too is me.  It was so lovely to listen to their accents, nothing beats a Scottish Borders accent.
Third surprise was having some customers not only trying to buy the same cushion but also wanting the same bag to put them in.  Its nice that people like my products so much.

    And what an amazing coincidence - small world indeed :)
