You're An Angel Marni

My friend Marni gave me this Jim Shore figurine in 2008 for Christmas. Tea and quilting, what a nice combo! She wrote a sweet message on the bottom which I think is such a great idea. 
Marni lives in Maupin Or on the Deschutes River and she is the one who got me into quilting. A cute story for another time. 

When her mom Gloria came to visit me recently with my other quilting friend Peggy, she gave me a little gift from Marni. The little box was wrapped in a pretty floral fabric and tied with ribbon. 
This sweet Willow Creek angel was inside! Another teapot angel. 

Thank you so much Marni. I keep them both by my bedside and think of you when I see them. 

They also remind me of a favorite scripture verse----

Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so, some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
Hebrews 12:3

Something to think about...

I have both of these statues, and they are on display all the time. The Jim Shore angel was in a blog post of mine in late 2011. I am looking at the Willow angel in my hutch right now. Love them. xo
