I do hope you all have a screen that you can really appreciate the beauty of what I will be sharing with you for this WW. I do my posts on my desktop, because the photos are sharper and I can better choose which of the pictures to select to post. When I view them on the laptop, they definitely aren't as clear and distinct as on the other computer. But I sure love blogging on my laptop better. Sometimes I do go to the desktop to view your beautiful posts though, so I can appreciate your pictures much better. I hope my pictures do justice to the art that I am sharing with you today.
Today I went to the post office and I had a package there.
When I saw who it was from, I could not get home fast enough to open it.
The return address was from Vintage Living, and so I knew it was something from the sweet (and may I say, beautiful) Rebecca. She had wrote me a few days ago asking for my address, because she had 'a little something' for me. I knew it would be beautiful, but I was not prepared for what I unwrapped.
Some things defy description, and this is one of those things.
I must just rely on my pictures, to convey the beauty of this object.
This tag was attached to my gift.
-one side of this lovey thing-
It has one of my favorite Bible verses from Psalms on angels interviening
in our lives for good.
-the other side-
This lovely pin was fastened to wonderfully tied up music papers.
I know that this will be a favorite pin to wear on a favorite jacket.
Rebecca has used vintage lace to adorn this heart and then embellished
it with a sweet angel. Look at her beautiful rhinestaone halo.
Rebecca has signed this piece on the back. It is an amazing creation.
It is not, however 'the gift'. It is a prelude to 'the gift'. It would have been
enough...more than enough...but it was not all.
Would you like to see?
I'll show you, but I will reveal it to you slowly so that you can take in
every gorgeous detail.
Can you see the vintage lace and old rosery?
And what is that picture?
Can you tell what it is yet?
The adornment at the top.
Can you make it out now?
Yes a star...not just any star...one of Rebecca's stars!!!
What a treasure, what a precious gift!
With my sweet son's image on it.
With Rebecca's heart in every stitch.
Rebecca fills these with sawdust for the most wonderful vintage feel.
As you can imagine, I have no words to express my love to Rebecca for
'the gift. I can give her my thanks, but it seems too small, too meager.
But I can give her my appreciation. I can give her my devotion to her art. I can
show her gratitude for her craft. And, I can give her my heart.
This is how beautiful it came to me.
Angel wings attached to the blossom.
Rebecca is a wife, a mother and grandmother. She has an Etsy, Ebay, and website. She has a beautiful, real life shop. If you would like to view some amazing beauty, you should see the decorating she did in her shop and home for Christmas!
OH MY GOSH!!!
It gave me goosebumps!
I guess where I am going with this is...that she doesn't have a lot of time, but the other day she evidently
saw the picture of Landon that I posted a couple of days before Valentine's day. I can't believe that she
must have went straight to her studio and made this stunning star, tag, and pin for me. She then lovingly wrapped it and sent it to me. She took time to show me love...to give me a piece of her heart that I will treasure forever.
Rebecca is all about love. When you go to her blog, it is so evident. The pictuers that she shows of her family there are amazing. I can feel the love she has for them everytime I visit.
Isn't this such a pretty shipping label?
Rebecca, thank you!
