This angel ornament was also given to Gail's daughter from Grandma the year that her daughter was an angel in their church Christmas pageant. They arrived early so she could get into her angel costume, but when she saw the costumes, she decided that she didn't want to wear one. But she still wanted to sing. She was the "rebel angel" that year. I think I'd really like that church. :) And Grandma too. What heart-warming stories. Thank you, Gail.
Joan Jordan has had this ornament (above and below) for many years and it's her favorite. She doesn't remember where it came from or when. It measures 2x3 inches with the doors closed. Isn't it sweet?
And here's a little present for all of you: some good news. Remember Myra in New Zealand who is dealing with cancer? Many of us have made heart blocks to cheer her up. (See the blue button in the sidebar.) Well, her friend Karen Jones reports that Myra is doing well. The initial tumor has shrunk, and the pain has stopped. Yayyy! In 3 days Karen will visit Myra and they'll do some sewing on the hearts quilt. Karen says Myra loves receiving all the blocks and good wishes.
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
