A Vintage Trait- Kindness

LuluComment

I try to live my life in a kind and giving manner. I do this because I feel that this is the way that everyone should live- trying to make life better for one another. When other people do something extraordinarily kind for me it warms my heart and makes me happy. Two such incidents happened to me this weekend...

My fried Shannon told me that she had made me something to commemorate Olive and she wanted to stop by the Expo and give it to me. I pulled it out of the bag and found an incredibly cute and intimate portrait of Olive. In the painting Olive has angel wings and is accompanied by her favorite floral suitcase and the brush that she loved to be brushed with. The painting made me laugh and cry at the same time- it perfectly depicts Olive's chubby cuteness and short little legs...

On Saturday a mom and daughter dropped by my booth. The mom was set up at the show as a dealer. The daughter was wearing a vintage hat and looked so cute. When I talked to her she told me about her love for vintage hats. Her mom bought her a little hat from my booth. On Sunday the daughter came back by my booth, this time on her own, wearing another cute hat. I talked to her some more and gave her a kooky pink floral bucket hat that I had. Not too much later her and her mom came back by. Her mom (Elizabeth Heidt from Julia C. Maxwell's in Bolinas, CA.) had a sweet little silver necklace with a silver Hershey's Kiss charm on it that she gave to me in thanks for the hat I had given to her daughter. She said "sweets for the sweet"...

Both of these occurrences made me so happy and thankful that there are such kind people in the world!
