Not me. I am thoroughly surprised and perhaps a bit overwhelmed!Last week I discovered a beautiful artful blog. I put it on my favorites list. I wandered through the older posts, seeing photographs of very familiar beaches. I realized the person lived on Cape Cod and thought, "Maybe someday we will meet and that would be very cool." Then last night I was so taken by the embellished frame and post card -- pink! roses! buttons! rick-rack! vintage millinery! pearl and rhinestone trim! What's not to like?! So I left a comment.
This morning, to my delight and surprise I discovered the blog in question, is done by someone I know. She went to the college where I was a librarian. She might have taken a course from my husband. My daughter has babysat for her kids, my son's first job in HS was with her family. We've just never talked about art.
What a kick it was to read her comment and realize not only have we met, we know each other and now we have this wonderful artful thing in common.
After reading her email, I left the house to get my hair done (I love my hairdresser!) When I returned I discovered all these lovely comments delivered to my email. All of them said Louise had sent them. Her post this morning encouraged her readers to stop over here and they have done so in droves. My inbox is now filled with great comments and new blogs to check out. I'm delightfully overwhelmed! I would like to return the favor. If you haven't already, do stop by Whispering Poppies. You can tell Louise I sent you.
