Day 34: Hummingbird & Rose

Ok so on my last post I kinda teased you guys saying that something cool happened to me on Day 34 of my “May Cause Miracles” journey. “I welcome in infinite possibilities. I will receive”. Well today is your lucky day and you finally get to hear the cool story. Manifesting once again. It was awesome!! Strange enough the story has to do with INFINITY!

DSC01714So, as some of you know, I had recently picked two winners in a give-away I did to celebrate new and old subscribers on my one year anniversary. I had already planned on getting the winners gifts from one of my favorite stores, Handmade Gallery. Well after I found out who the winners were, I contacted them to see what kind of stuff they liked so I could have more of an idea of what to get them, because if you have been to the store before you probably know how hard it could be to pick out something because EVERYTHING is so amazing and unique. I could spend a good couple of hours just checking every little item out.

About 2 weeks ago I decided to go to Handmade after one of my meetings across the street. I had gotten an email from my “old” follower letting me know she had visited the site and telling me which items she was interested in. I hadn’t gotten a chance to look at the website at the actual items she liked but at this point, now knowing that they were both female, I knew I could still probably get them something they would like no matter what their style was.

Well as I was looking around, it wasn’t as easy as I had hoped. There were just too many options. The store was closing, I didn’t get to look long, and I certainly didn’t want to just grab just anything so I decided to come back the following week to look again. This time I was going to take the time to check out the website to see what my “old” customer was actually into. I looked the items up and decided to see what I could find in the store.

This last Tuesday after my meeting, I went over to the store and started to search for the items she liked. I was checking out one of the jewelry cases that caught my eye and as I glanced at the tag it actually happened to be by one of the artist she said she liked, Hummingbird & Rose. I loved everything in this case but I was searching for a particular Infinity necklace she said she liked. I couldn’t find it so then thought maybe I was confused and it was made by someone else so went searching around the store for it. While I was searching for this necklace I had picked up two other items for her, a “One Good Deed A Day” journal (which  I will get into in another post) and cool little print. Both were very inexpensive so I still had room to get her one more item, preferably the necklace she wanted, granted it be in the price range.

Searching, searching, searching, I couldn’t find it so I just decided I would get something else. Well I had no luck with that either because I didn’t want to get just anything so finally I went up to the woman at the cashier and asked her for her opinion. I told her I had a blog and was looking for something to give a winner of a contest. She says ” “I actually had wanted to give away a piece to someone or for a blog…”. I told her the amount and that I wanted something unique. She then proceeds to take me over the Hummingbird & Rose case near the counter and says that she is the maker of that jewelry. She says she will give me a piece for free. I ask her, to make sure, if it was her brand that has the Infinity necklace, she says yes but it was sold the day before. I tell her about how that is the necklace that my blog winner wanted and she tells me she can have one for me in a few days.

I told her I didn’t want the necklace for free because I wanted to support her work so she decided to give it to me for half off. We both were so amused by what had just happened. She had said I must have been put in her path for a reason because she had been wanting to give a necklace away, and I just couldn’t believe that she was the maker of the necklace I was searching for. I ALMOST didn’t even ask her for her opinion but my intuition just told me to ask. I seriously spent all night flipping out about what had happened.

I picked up the necklace yesterday and will be sending the gifts to the winner this week. She was even so VERY  kind to add in an extra necklace for me as a gift. SOOOOO nice!!! Everyone please check out Anna’s jewelry line, Hummingbird & Rose. Aside from the lovely name, the jewelry is delicately beautiful. She has an Etsy page where you can view and buy your favorite items, including the Infinity necklace. Please click the picture below (and the links above) for her information feel free to let her know My Mornin’ Coffee sent ya.

I’m so excited for my winner to receive her gift in the mail shortly. She lives in England and since Handmade will be closing down soon (which I just found out right after I had picked the winners; another meant to be) she will never get the chance to come check out the store herself so I am very glad I get to share some of the amazingness that store has to offer.

If you live in the LA area, please go visit Handmade before they close for good on April 30th. Everything in the store is on Sale so you will probably want to buy everything. Support our local artists!
