You know how sometimes the universe seems to align itself so nice things shake down? When trilling bluebirds follow you around and cartoon mice sew you dresses? No? Here's an example:
Whilst organizing my kitchen cupboards I decided what I really needed was some nice glass storage jars, to hold STUFF. We have a trip to Ikea planned this weekend and I was going to pick up some Burken jars.
When (and here's where the serendipity comes in) I happened to be doing laundry and spotted these fellows in our laundry room's waiting/tv area.
Burken jars. 5 of them in just the sizes I needed, with those glorious words 'take me' attached. A spot of boiling water and bleach and voila! New jars for me.
Is it mental to be so cheerful about secondhand jars? Possibly, but these aren't just secondhand jars, they are a present from a smiley beneficent universe, and who doesn't love that.
Got Serendipity? Do tell.
