Gifts from the hands and hearts of others
I always love receiving gifts that are created by hand. I know how much time and creativity went into making them and they are truly treasures from the heart. I have a wonderful sister, Dorothy, who crochets beautifully. She gave me this wonderful poncho for Christmas and I love it. With our sub-tropical climate we rarely need anything heavier.
Another treasure is my Christmas earrings made by my dear friend, Linda. The Christmas trees are made with Swarovski daisy spacers in 4 sizes. The snowmen are also Swarovski crystals.
Several years ago another dear friend, Barb E., made this bobbin lace angel for me. It's a gift I will always treasure. I can only imagine the time it took to create this wonderful piece of art.
And the last special gift for today is pictured below. The delicate hand-blown glass icicles were a gift from artist and friend, Terry Albright
