Saturday we went to the Vintage Barn Sale. (Crossing my fingers and toes I can be a vendor at the September show).
At the show Virginia was selling bird nests. I thought, what the heck? And then on closer inspection and chatting with Virginia...SHE MAKES THEM.
I carefully handled and touched and marveled at every one.
I finally decided on one. Silly me, why didn't I buy more than one?
They look like they belong in every corner of my house.
You know how some people no matter when or where you take their picture it turns out cute, even if they are eating a mouth full of cookies and sticking out their tongue?
That is the same with this amazing hand made nest..it could go in any place in my home. It is amazing.
AND SHE MADE IT.
Like I told Virginia..she is as good as a bird.
I think I will keep it safe inside this china cup for a bit - where every time I walk by, I can stop and marvel at Virginias' magic touch.
I believe we all have a magic touch. What is yours? The magic can be a wide range of things, is it the way you listen to someone's heart, sooth a crying child, hum a tune, nurture a seed, write a computer program, freely give hugs? What is your Magic Touch?
Thanks Virginia. Thanks for reminding us magic comes in many ways...I love your magic touch, with grass and stems. Who would have imagined, a magic touch could be so simple yet, so stunning?
