Silly billions to 1

This is an amazing true tale that I'm going to relate to you. Back in  January this year I made this vintage tag and posted it on my blog here. A fellow blogger made a comment  to say that she was shocked to see the clip on earring (top left of tag) as she had found an earring EXACTLY like it that summer at a garage sale and had torn off the clip hardware added a couple of jump rings and turned it into a necklace charm! Nothing special in that, except Tracy lives in Nevada and I'm in England UK and have never been to America !!!!!!!!
Now what transpires is even more spooky. So how did I happen to have my earring you ask?
Well mine was sent to me  by another fellow blogger Caleen when we did a Victorian Cuff Swap together and was included in a bag of extra goodies that she enclosed. Coincidence? Even more so when I tell you that Caleen and I did the cuff swap back in Sep 2010!!!!!!
Caleen lives in California the very next state to Nevada and Tracy on a  subsequent  (you can imagine that by now e-mails are flying back and forth) e-mail told me that she lives in a rural area that is actually CLOSER to the California border than to the nearest Nevada city.
Well I just had to find out if the earrings did match so I offered to send my tag off to Tracy so that she could make a bracelet up with my earring  to go with her necklace. I did this in  April and guess what? They do indeed match as the following pictures from Tracy show.

I'm so pleased that the earrings are back together again.
This has to be a silly billions to 1 chance don't you think that 3 fellow bloggers should have not only found the earring in the first place but blogged about them too.
As Tracy puts it, We do indeed live in a very small World.

Love that story.

My friend's Mum died and before she died told her she would send her a sign to say she was ok.
(I am not in to all that but anyway!)
She went shopping on the market for Fruit and in the bottom of the basket she found a wedding ring, she was told by the stall holder to take it to the police station. On her way there she rang her dad to tell him and he said "Oh my god I have just looked at my little finger and your Mum's ring is missing". She told him where she had been, and he had been on the same stall an hour earlier!!!!!!!
Do you not just love that story? Doesn't matter that it is a co-incidence it made my friend feel that was her Mum, a sign and she was ok.

Spooky! But it never would have happened outside the fabulous blogging world. We really are lucky to have been born in the age of the internet..... even if it doesn't always seem so!

I've been away for ages Valery and missed so many beautiful creations from you. Not much time to create at the moment but when I have a couple of minutes I add to my crochet flower jar - when its full it will wing it way to you.
