An Angel has come to visit
I love to mooch around reading other people's blogs when I am supposed to be working. Often what catches my eye is a beautiful illustration or a great photo. I started to read Flora Jamieson's blog; Through The Round Window because of her love of Pipi Longstocking and on seeing a photo of a decaying cottage that I sort of wished I lived in. I noticed she had a Folksy store and loved her designs, I don't think I notice they were stained glass at first. I thought I wasn't a real fan of stained glass, but I still enjoyed her blog.
Every year I buy a new 'special' Christmas ornament, the tradition used to be I'd buy it on a shopping trip to Liberty with my friend, Sam. But no Liberty trip this year I'm afraid and I thought I'd get something from Folksy and support a designer maker. So I went back to Flora's store and got the angel above.
She arrived yesterday and is so beautiful, the photo just doesn't do her justice. I am now looking around the house for an excuse, any excuse, to get more stained glass. I have even cleaned my windows today (after taking these pictures) just so my beautiful angel looks her best.
