A Chance Meeting at Goodwill...
I somehow got to talking to a lady in one of the aisles and we chatted a while about this and that.
One of the this and that's that we chatted about was that we both liked Asian art.
I told her about the Korean painting that I found at that store and she stated that her whole house was decorated in Oriental style...
After about a 15 minute chat, she pulled a piece of carved jade out of her pocket. She gave it to me to look at.
On the other side was a Phoenix. A beautiful piece.
I started to hand it back to her and she said, "No. I want you to have it."
She explained that she had been carrying it around for a few weeks and was looking for someone that would appreciate it.
She said that she thought that it might be Korean and that she wanted me to have it!
I gave her one of my hand beaded rings in exchange.
It was one of those chance meetings that you hear about.
I doubt that I will ever see her again, but I really appreciate the piece. I found beads and some stones to make it into a necklace and this is how it turned out.
I wore it to Wednesday Witches today and everyone liked it.
I also got half a watchband finished at the meeting today. All in all, it was a very good day!
See you tomorrow
