Blessings in a Jar

Yesterday, I completed my last job on my To Do list before heading back to work, cleaning out the play loft. I managed to finally donate a bunch of Emily's toys from when she was really little and while cleaning I found a few little items that I didn't want to throw out but didn't really know what I'd do with so I just put them in my studio until inspiration hit. Well, this morning when I was looking at the little pewter girl saying her night time prayers and the tiny little glass jar on my desk it hit! My girlfriend gave Emily this little girl as a gift, but she had fallen off the cross that she was attached to. I wanted to keep her even though she was "broken" as she was a very thoughtful gift when Emily was first born so I decided to make my own version of the Fairy in a Jar and created this for my girl. I gave it to her this morning and told her I made it with extra love just for her to watch over her. It now has a special place in her newly painted room. Thanks for stopping by!
