A Phone Call From A Friend

I have known her for years..she was one of my first customers on eBay back in 2000. We spoke by telephone for the very first time the other day..why did we wait so long Barbara! I'm sure we were on the phone for at least an hour..chatting about old times all the way from CT. We reminisced about things she had purchased from me, about the reason she purchased a pretty milk glass bowl from me. My description drew her in..."imagine it piled high with fluffy mashed potatoes"...hahaha we had a good laugh out of that one. Did I really write that?!! She recalled a rose garden that my husband planted for me , abut the time he was going through treatment for cancer. Just so many little things she remembered, and it made me smile to be reminded of them!

We chatted about so many things...we both have daughters who are close in age. Her's, ready to spread her wings to begin college soon. As we were talking, it felt like we knew so much about each other, with only an online friendship! I demanded that she come out for a visit and I would spend a week as her tour guide to all of the hot shopping spots in Southern Calif. She plans to, maybe next year, and I can't wait to meet her in person!

She purchased the pair of chairs pictured above from my store recently and we shipped them to her. Barb is married to one of those nice guys who doesn't bat an eye seeing 2 pink chairs rolled into the house. :) We are lucky gals, in more ways than one, right Barb?

What a cute photo! How nice to receive a phone call from someone you met through Ebay so many years ago.
