A celebration of spirit

Mom used to assemble these ribboned barrettes in the 80’s and sell them at craft fairs along with a whole bunch of other things—rag dolls from scratch, realistic stuffed possums and lambs, nice teddy bears, pillows and sachets with potpourri, and painted wooden boxes with dutch designs. All sorts of things.

Not sure why these crossed my mind, but I picked up a pair from Visions of Whimsy on Etsy to give to a friend’s daughter.

Little things like this feel like a celebration of spirit.
