Extra Special Ornaments
These two handmade ornaments are from a set of six that were given to me by a dear friend. The ornaments were made and embroidered by the mother of my friend. I became a very close friend with the mother. She was the same age that my grandmother would have been if she hadn't passed away when I was a young girl. Our friendship was an unlikely one since I was in my early thirty's and she was in her eighties. I visited her often, took her shopping, and I spent many hours with her after her stroke.
When she passed away her daughter gave me the ornaments as a keepsake in her memory. Every year when I get out the ornaments I am reminded of my dear, dear friends.
