My dear friend Lindy in New York sent a felted cardinal and a card with the message below. I was not aware of this lore, were you? I will be watching
A cardinal is a representative of a loved one who has passed. When you see one, it means they are visiting you. They usually show up when you most need them or miss them. They also make an appearance during times of celebration as well as despair to let you know they will always be with you. Look for them, they'll appear.
The support of women, particularly those who have walked down this path reached out. Two bloggers in particular sent private notes. So in case you are not aware of these talents I thought I would share
The lovely Penelope is a talent I have watched from afar with admiration. An interior designer and gardener extraordinaire, she lives in Montecito, California. After a few touching emails Penelope declared "We are friends, lucky me. Feast your eyes on her home!
Just imagine an evening here!
Do you have someone in your profession that you look up to, hold in the highest esteem? Mine is Deborah Silver of Detroit Garden Works. In my eyes, she is the greatest garden designers/entrepreneur, hands down. That Deborah was even aware of my blog was a pleasant surprise. During this busy season she shared her experience of losing her Mother. Enjoy.....
On my to do list is to head to Detroit to visit this emporium of genius. A separate division is
Branch Studio where the most brilliant metal works are hand crafted
I highly recommend Deborahs Blog HERE. She is very giving and sharing of her knowledge
And the winner is Margie, please email me with your details
