What a frustrating day trying to find the note that was enclosed!!
Yep...the pup...I had opened the box on the back porch as the pup played and he brought me a stick only to promptly get it wrapped in my purse and dump EVERYTHING on the ground...sigh...
After searching high and low and outside again and again, I found the note INSIDE my purse...I guess Charcoal was just helping me to put it in a safe place...silly pup!
The note read: This is made of cedar and finished with Danish oil. The little bird is cut from Tru Stone, a material turners use to make pens.
And THEN to be able to see how she cut this cute little owl was amazing to me!! Funny, My scroll saw doesn't do ANYTHING like this! =)
The note continued: I left one enclosed in the block to show how they are cut. Open it up, there's a surprise inside! Just throw away the pieces that fall out. They were all made on the scroll saw, which is my area of expertise, I only dabble at painting and it isn't something I'll ever do that well...lol But it's given me something to do while being sick so long.
The owl and puppy are made of sugar pine (smell it, it's my favorite perfume...)...Diana
This package smelled like the stripping room where Daddy cut wood...nothing smells better than fresh cut wood!
I have had a woodsie candle burning tonight in hopes of bringing more memories to my mind...aaaaaahhhh~~peace....
Thank you, Diana...you have no idea how special this was to me!
What a TREAT...Today, I am thankful for serendipitous gifts...I hope that all who read this KNOW the joy of getting something like this in the mail for absolutely no reason...Be sure to live your life paying it forward. The one thing I am sure about that has been proven to me time and time again, is that you CANNOT OUT GIVE GOD...I wish BLESSINGS TO YOU...~charlotte
