I wouldn't say I was an ornament type of girl. I can count on one hand the items that I consider precious and then there's a few items from our travels that I would consider less precious but still remain an important part of our lives.
This little lady was a gift given to me over eight years ago when I moved from London. I think this little lady is more precious because the gift was from my lovely next door neighbour, who is the person responsible for introducing me to scrapbooking over 14 years ago now.
As a Creative memories consultant she asked me to come along to a class. I declined gracefully, I was about to get married and had no idea what scrapbooking was or even if creating a memory album was something I wanted to do.
Fast forward 9 months (yes...my first born arrived nine months almost to the day I got married!, a honeymoon baby some may say....I'm not so sure he was 4 weeks early! and still 8lb 3oz!!) when my neighbour asked me again. This time I did go along (it wasn't far...just across the drive)......and well as they say....the rest is history!
This willow Tree figurine is called "Angel of Spring,...Bearing the promise of new beginnings".
A perfect gift.
I'll always be thankful for her persevering with me and asking me again...I wonder if she's knows just how much I looked forward to those evening classes.
The figurine holding the heart was bought for me by my husband.....to keep the little lady company. It's another one of my precious pieces.
