Eddie checked the mail today and came back with a box for me. "You've got a package. From Evil Pixie?" he said, a little puzzled.
"Evil Pixie? Really??" I said, as he handed me the box. "Open it for me."
He slit open the box, pulled out an envelope and handed it to me, then handed me a small, black, velvet box.
Inside? These beautiful silver drop earrings!! For my birthday, which in on Sunday. I was so thrilled to get these. They're beautiful, and I was just in Dillard's today looking at a very similar pair. I wound up leaving without them, instead coming home to these. Handmade.
Evil Pixie and I have been reading each other's blogs for a few years now, and have corresponded a few times via email. I mentioned her in yesterday's blog as one of the bloggers I'd like to meet. She's pretty damn cool. Her sister, Wicked Pixie, insisted she make me this pair of earrings, which Evil Pixie promptly did, and mailed them out to me.
I'm really quite honored to have someone not only read my blog, but think about me in such a personal way, creating a piece of jewelry that I will likely wear often, to give to me for my birthday. I am one lucky blogger.
Thank you, Evil Pixie, and the rest of the Pixie Household, for thinking about me and sending me something beautiful and functional. I can't wait to wear them!
