In 1998 I made what I call "The Mushroom Gatherers" , two young elves ,who were in love sitting on a bench in the woods.

 Many, many years later a friend emailed us a photograph that he had come across while checking out a site called "Upstage". Upstage was a coffee house in Asbury Park in the 60'  that all the up and coming musicians played in, including my husband Michael. So about 3 or 4 years ago we get to see a picture of the two of us on our second date, very cool. It was a real surprise to see after all this time.

Now, what I would like to point out is how similar the photo and the two elves look. From the color of what I am wearing, my flower shirt, the girl elf is wearing floral tights . Michael is wearing his buck skin jacket( very hip for the times) the boy elf has a buck skin hat and you can't see in the picture but he has a leather vest on. Even how I made the elf's hand around the girls waist, you would of thought that I had copied from the picture. Just have to wonder...
