Delicious book and bits

There are times when the interwebby thing really amazes me and makes me smile. I recently read this post at Velma's blog which made me think I have to go follow up this woman's work. I diligently went and explored the web to find Trace of soewnearth in a few places; and was then totally amazed to discover that she was Australian!

I love how you can travel half the way around the world (figuratively speaking) only to come back home and find what it was you were looking for.

I followed her to her etsy shop and bought a beautiful book, just like Velma's.  We had a lovely little email exchange - she was just as surprised to discover that I was who I was as she sometimes reads this blog! Small worlds, small wonders.

I was delighted to receive my parcel from her last week - with lots of gorgeousness and goodies. Here are a few of the pieces...

  3. Delicious is the perfect description for those yummy items...especially that little book!!! I could eat it up!
    I always chuckle at your phrase "interwebby thing"....but it too is the perfect description for the way we've all become so interconnected. Curious how the distances collapse, so that your new connection in your own country was found in the same way you'd find someone halfway across the globe! What fun!
