I opened my mail last night and found, from Katie Jane, this gorgeous fairy. She will sit on my desk to remind me to fly. At first, I thought she was a dragonfly. I guess dragonflies and fairies have a lot in common.
Be sure to visit Katie Jane's ETSY shop to find her other fairies and beautiful glass works.
Kate included a card with beautiful words to warm my heart.
Here is the picture Andrea painted of Miss Doodle to illustrate these words from her advent calendar: "You cannot prevent the birds of sorrow and grief from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building nests in your hair."
And look at this fabulous Niki St. Phalle scultpure. Wow. I guess Niki knows about Mom's red heart necklace too!
Kelly sent me a dear card with lovely words from Canada. The painter of this picture is Tom Thomson, a Canadian painter from the turn of the last century. I wonder if he knew Emily Carr? Thank you Kelly. I treasure your words.
Laurel sent me a card of her painting of the cat angel with beautiful words I read over and over. Also, four of her greeting cards made from her paintings. Thank you Laurel. Oops, the snow plow is passing by, because, yes.....we are having a snow storm. :)
Marianne sent me this Sjimmie post card with Christmas glitter and lovely words on the back.
Patti sent this hand-painted card in her wonderful, cheerful style with lovely words inside. I am not quoting the inside words on these cards as I feel that is private to me. But they are all beautiful, poetic and I love to read them over and over. In fact I think I will put them all in a special place and next year on Mom's death anniversary I can reread them as part of a ceremony of remembrance. A big heartfelt thanks and hugs to everyone.
