Photo Friday; Little Angels: What Goes Around, Comes Around

My daughter DeeDee made this angel for me when she was nine.

Loved like the Velveteen Rabbit

Look close.  I still see flecks of gold paint, and a trumpet or scepter in her hand.  Her wings are gone.  Okay, so is her head, just leaving a little nub where the head was.  I don’t see those flaws unless I am looking with a critical eye.  She’s like the Velveteen Rabbit, loved into real.  I see what DeeDee made, almost 30 years ago. I remember putting the angel on top my grandfather clock, a perfect place for her.  She’s been there ever since, keeping watch.

This year, DeeDee and her own nine year-old Drama Diva, Miss K, made me a new angel.  (Sniff, sniff:  9 year-old Dee-Dee, 9 year-old daughter of DeeDee.)

Beautiful.  I will love my new angel for at least next 30 years, right along-side my first little angel.

Do you have some cherished hand-made items that light up your home? I love hearing stories of loved-to-real treasures.

  1. Lovely! Our Christmas tree is full of memories, and I’m sad we weren’t able to put it up this year (a combination of being away over Christmas and having acquired three rambunctious cats). Maybe next year we can bring out all the ornaments and do some reminiscing!

      Oh my, Laurel. Cats and Christmas trees are such a riot. We have two that keep us hopping. Lately they’ve been hunting hat, scarves, and mittens. One takes things upstairs, the other brings them down.
