Gifts From the Heart

Every year, our eldest daughter Nicole (an artist in her own
right), creates a wonderful seasonal themed gift for me. This year's special gift is "Christmas Dreams" shadowbox. Last year she painted and costumed a blank nutcracker in an opulent olde world style and the year before was a fabulous old parlour Christmas setting in a shadow box. These (shown
above) are just from the last three years and I wanted to share them. The rest of Nicole's gifts, from gorgeous hand crafted
jewelry to knit scarves and paintings are eagerly looked forward
to each year.

Our other daughter, Keara, is not as artistically creative, however
she is thoughtfully inventive when it comes to the gifts she gives
her Dad and I. We always look so forward to what quirky, wonderful thing she has thought up too.

These are truly gifts from the heart and we are so blessed to
have such fantastic daughters.

I love daughters. The world doesn't offer us up anything better than that.

I love the face on the nutcracker. Wonderful.

Thanks my dear Sue for seeing all of me.
