OK I seriously can’t believe this one, y’all. If you want to have a restored faith in humanity, read on. If you’re a cold heartless meanie, go find another blog.
…[giving the meanies time to skedaddle]…
About a week ago I was sitting at work on my lunch break, catching up on emails. A new one popped into my inbox, from from Tracy. Tracy and I have had absolutely *no* previous acquaintance here on Teh Intartubes, or in real life. None. Never heard of her before last week.
Tracy’s email said (I’m summarizing, not quoting, here):
I’m friends with Diana. I have a Morelle Truffle bag that I don’t use and was wondering if you want it, for free, because I just want it to go to a good home. I offered it to Diana but she said since she has a few already and you don’t have any, maybe you would want it.
My response was (this is more-or-less a direct quote):
awjeoijfwoigjwoeihqodiwejuoiretjw YES. YOU ARE AWESOME. And Diana is awesome. ::happydance::
Just a few days later, guess what was sitting on my doorstep?
HOLY CRAP GUYS. I have wanted one of these for AGES, ever since I started seeing Diana’s collection. (I even included a Morelle bag in my “if I had a million dollars” post, here, after seeing Diana’s)
And now I have a COMPLETE STRANGER friend (props to Matt Logelin for that one 😀) who gives me one for FREE? SERIOUSLY!? This is not how life is supposed to work! Whatever happened to “cold and unforgiving world”?
Talk about the kindness of strangers. This bag is a beauty – I adore it!
I’m still just beside myself. This whole thing has given me the warmest, fuzziest feeling ever. EVER.
Now I just have to figure out how to best return that warm fuzzy feeling to Tracy. I may send her a cat – they’re warm and fuzzy! Or perhaps just a lovely piece of knitting 🙂
Consider my faith in humanity officially RESTORED.
::happydance:: THANK YOU TRACY.
PS>As you may already know, Morelle is actually going out of business. There are still lots of (discounted!) lovely bags in her shop, though, and now that I’ve got one in my hot little hands I can personally testify to the amazing style and workmanship. Definitely check it out, if you’re in the market for a new bag! And I hope that once the owner is settled in Sydney she’ll get back in business – these are really fantastic items 🙂
