shoe fairy

The other day I was helping a colleague arrange some decorations for a special event at our office. I had brought in some glass jars to help and she filled them with lemons and limes and water and candles. etc. It turned out really nice.

As we started arranging things, I ran into the mail room to bring back some old books to use to raise some of the jars. Sitting right there on the giveaway table was a pair of shoes. Actually just the style I was hoping to find in a store. I stopped to try them on. Perfect fit. I wore them out to where we were working.

"Look!" I exclaimed to my friend, "Look what I found!"

"I just put them there," she replied. "Just on my way out here to work on this."

It's just one of those "moments." They happen every so often. Did I mention they were just the shoes I was going to shop for?  I call such moments "winks from God."

Strangely enough, just a year ago I wrote a similar post about shoes at the same office!


  1. I love it when someone is in the right place at the right time and something that is meant to be happens. Better still, I like your description of a wink from God.
    Only one thing missing Dottsie, and I know I won't be the only one to ask - let's see the shoes please. :-)

  2. Good morning Dotsie. First of all I love your new header! So pretty. And, secondly, the luncheon table looks lovely with all the fresh fruit and flowers. Did you get to keep the shoes? How fun is that! Have a great week. Hugs, Pam

  3. Such encouraging words from your corner this morning! (I went back and read last year's story too.)
    I love to hear stories about the little details that God has planned, and I am especially heartened today as I needed that reminder for the week ahead...

    The vases of fruits and flowers are charming!

  4. What fun! I love it when things like that happen. And I love fairies..heehee! Hugs!

  5. What? No picture of the shoes????

  6. Love the timing of your shoes.

    And like someone before me, I too love the header.

  7. I just love those bits of serendipity! Like everyone else, I want to see the shoes. :)

  8. I agree- let us see the shoes!

  9. I love stories like this. Coincidence? I'm going to use your colleague's idea for the jars. The table looks delicious.


  10. I so adore this post. Encouragement that I need to hear. Thanks, sweets. :)

  11. What a find it's great when things just turn up just as you want them sadly doesn't happen very often.

  12. I think He winked twice... just to be sure there was no doubt. ;) blessings ~ tanna

  13. Perfect timing! :) Pretty table and foods looks yummy.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Perfect and all part of a plan! Good for you both - she got rid of something that she no longer wanted and you got something that you wanted!

    BTW - The food looks fab! Love the idea of fruit in the water!


  15. Gotta love the God winks. I think those flower arrangements are attractive with the lemon slices in those containers.

  16. Lovely table, interesting the things that happen in life. "His eye is on the sparrow and I know he's watching me."
    Have a good week!

  17. Shoe fairies have to be one of the best in the business, LOL!

    Hey, I was reading your comment on Vee's latest post, and you were sadly missing the Google Reader. Just wanted to let you know that several blogging friends have been using Feedly and they like it as an alternative.

  18. Podso,
    Hm~m~m...the shoe fairy, huh???
    I've been lucky to find vintage books on the work room table at my former employment, or prehaps a cracked floral vase...but never did I find shoes!!!
    I loved the "wink from God"!!! Such a sweet thought, dear friend!!!

  19. That was deja vu and serendipity all rolled into one! :)


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
