A few weeks ago I spotted this lovely antique crucifix
on Signed by Ange's Blog and knew that I had to have it.
I love everything that Ange does
but this just spoke to me.
Antique Crucifix with Shell Font
'For the good, the world is good'
If you have not met Ange, be sure to stop by and say hello. She is a wonderfully gifted artist and writer and I am delighted to have her as my blogging friend. She has recently established a website, Signed by Ange which I have to say is fantastic! Trust me, it is worth a visit!
Her package arrived and we were so so excited....it was more than I ever imagined.
She has hand painted the words 'For the good, the world is good' in french at the center of the crucifix.
To add to this she included several keepsakes; a handwritten note with a yellow flower, a collection of sea shells, a mother and child ornament and an invite for a diner a la maison to which I say 'with pleasure'. I also received a scrabble letter 'j' for my name and two french words 'veut/veux' meaning 'want'.
This sweet cross and the trinkets that followed will be favourite keepsakes for many years to come.
I have a special place in mind for this cross but need to travel to another continent before I can finally say it is 'home'. When I do, Ange will be the first to know!
Thank you Ange!
