Greetings! It’s been a while. We’re half way into the month of September and this is only my second post for the month. Yesterday a package from
First I pulled out two lovely reflective cut-outs, one of a swallow in flight and the other the silhouette of a butterfly with wings. Next, I pulled out heavy stationery folded over to enclose three photos of red tulips.
But wait…there’s more…a charming little white bird with a feathery black tail! A charming garden theme is developing. A fragrant packet of seeds in the loveliest of packages with the words Victorian Scatter Garden written in elegant script and a small round mirror with one of the photos of tulips gracing the opposite side.
Finally, pages from a dictionary with the many versions of horticulture held a strand of shimmering ‘jewels.’ I am smitten with all the little treasures that Angela Byers sent me. I may put them all together in a collage and hang the treasure collage near my work area to remind of me of the love and care that envelopes people everywhere.
Dear Angela, thank you for the ‘jewels’ you sent me. I’m wishing you all the joys to be found in life and all the love that you can hold in your heart.
I was also fortunate enough to have my name chosen to receive the secret ‘jewel’ created by Toni Johnson, a photographer and glass artist. The lovely red stone hangs from a silken cord with beauty and grace.
Stop by the Daily Vignette to learn about Toni’s masterful photography or her website that displays art glass and photography, both a visual pleasure. Thank you, Toni, for the gorgeous red stone necklace.
The Gift of Jewels is the brainchild of Se’Lah at Necessary Room and I cannot begin to express the joy I’ve found in both creating jewels to send off into the world and in receiving the little treasures. To Se’Lah, I’m blowing a thank you kiss into the cool September air of northwest
knowing it will find its way south caught on a warm island breeze and to you. Ohio
Wishing all the ‘jewels’ of this earth joyful celebrations and much love!
