An Angel In Iowa

Some things, a thought or image, really hit you and go straight to your heart.  That’s how I am with angels. . .especially those created in memory of someone special.  Wandering through the huge and surreal beauty of the old Burlington Iowa City cemetary is an experience I won’t forget.  Among the hills, gardens, gorgeous old tree growth and ravines running throughout, are tucked some lovely sculpted characters.  This little angel, holding his blanket and rubbing his eye, is the sweetest I have ever seen.  He is guarding someone’s gone but not forgotten little darling.

I’m happy to announce that ‘little angel’ is  the most recent creation in my ongoing pillow collection.  Surely, he will provide some sweet dreams to the next napper on my loveseat.  It is the last day to enter the drawing for a free photo pillow.  I’m excited to see which one of my blog followers gets my first ever prize give away!!!  If you want to enter, simply send me a little note by hitting the ‘contact’ button. . . .until midnight on May 31st.
