My Mom is a bit of a "luddite" so I have no fears of her getting online and reading my blog. So I think it's safe to show off a couple of her Christmas gifts a bit early. For years she had been telling us how much she admires the "faceless angels" that they carry at Hallmark. So my Dad and I were out shopping and we decided to check them out.
Her "faceless angels" are actually these beautiful figures designed by artist Susan Lordi. The collection is called Willow Tree. I'm in love with these and am already wishing for my own "faceless angel" collection!
One of the quotes from Lordi on the webpage says, "I try to keep the interpretation of Willow Tree open. I hope this makes it more personal, and allows the viewer to decide its meaning." She really does an amazing job because when my Dad and I saw this first sculpture we immediately knew it was perfect to represent my sister and I. I took pictures at all different angles to show you just how beautiful the figurine really is.
"Heart and Soul"
Open hearts, sharing souls, trusted friends
My sister is probably my closest confidant so I love that to me the two girls appear to be in deep conversation.
(The day we were shopping I was wearing my hair back in a pony tail just like this!)
(Did I mention that my sister is a blonde?)
Don't you love it?!
We also wanted a figurine that would represent my Mom and Dad. This is the one that we picked out:
Love ever endures
I think this side is so sweet. As of 12/31/10 my parents will have been married 33 years :)
I hope everyone has a happy Thursday!
