I have been gone for almost a month. Needed a well deserved break to deal with some health issues.
But now....I'm back to blogging and looking forward to connecting with all of you again.
Just want to share with you something I have been working on.
I am a firm believer in having elements of a "spiritual" nature in my home. It really does not matter what religious significance it imparts....although I do have my own set of beliefs.
This holiday season I have embarked on a project of making my own personal statement with these little pieces.
Each one is made with things that have meaning to me...and things I have picked up during my life's travels.
This little altar piece is made of a Mexican Milagro heart, the top of an old snuff can found in Wyoming, part of a pair of earrings and a Grecian coin that has an OWL in the center. The coin was gifted to me over 20 years ago by a wonderful woman on a trip to Greece. She wanted to let me know how much she valued my visiting with her so she made sure I left with a little gift.
The Milagro is topped with an old rusty bottle cap I found in South Dakota while walking my beautiful dog....Skyler. Each time I look at this piece I have made I will be reminded of all the places I have been and the lovely people I have met.
As I get older I do spend more time thinking of the significance of all the people and places I have been fortunate enough to encounter.
This holiday season is a good time for all of us to think on the spiritual side of our lives and if you are able.....make a little visual something that is special to you as a constant reminder.
As you know.....I ALWAYS prefer something homemade to something store bought......
Have missed all of you and hope each one of you has a wonderful coming week.
