Venn Diagram

When I bought the little Flossie spoon, I thought I’d put it on my Etsy Shop. But then I started thinking about the possibility of there being someone named Flossie who read either my blog or subscribed to my Etsy shop’s feed. I though the chances of that happening were Slim and None… and Slim’s out of town!

But low and behold, I got an e-mail from a reader and buyer named Flo who lives in Fla!  And now the little Flossie spoon will be hers!

This internet thing never ceases to amaze me!  Click on the circles above to learn about Venn Diagrams.


  1. I clicked! While your pink and green circles are pretty, I realize that I still get dizzy and fuzzy when I see anything that reminds me of geometry or algebra!
    I am left brained :)

  2. So true! And traceable, I suppose, to the fact that parents aren't rushing to name their baby girls Florence anymore, well, with the exception of Prime Minister David Cameron's new baby girl, Florence Rose.

    When I screened up your blog yesterday, I was e-LEC-trified at the sight of my mother's unusual name engraved so beautifully in a hand now long gone, electrified and reminded how much I miss her, and what a glorious Flossie she was, and that's why I'm so grateful to you Meg for overriding your initial Venn impulse by putting it out there for your tiny navy blue readership sliver to behold.

    I'm finding something symbolic by what I think is a period after the word "Flossie" -- as in, there'll never be another.

    Thank you again, Meg.

  3. One of my favorite blogwriters has a dog named Flossie, but I don't think she's trained her to use cutlery just yet. 8-)

  4. Such a pretty, traditional name. What a great small world it truly is!!!

  5. I remember the Venn Diagram from Math. I used to love making them.

  6. I love this! What a great story.
    and I so agree... bloggy world is a wild and crazy ride!!


  7. I had a Great Aunt named Flossie. Her husband was my Uncle Oscar. And his brother was Dustin. And they had another brother named Mike. He was my Grandfather. And his wife, my Grandmother was named Mary. Keep me in mind for utensils with those names. Especially Oscar.

    Oh, and there were two other brothers...Bradley and Mace. Mace was somewhat odd.
