This is a design by inspiration piece.
I have a Guardian Angel watching over me. I believe. Never could have made it this far without “it?”
Sometimes it lets me know I was helped, if I was paying attention. What, I could have done that alone? No way.
Well I have a Guardian Angel in the flesh too.
She is there to make sure I’m okay. She loves to help the lost ones. Puppies, kittens, strays and wild things of all kinds. I owe her so much.
She lights up the most when she tells me stories of the people she meets volunteering at the Veterans hospital here in Seattle. People she helps, I say. She goes four days a week, six till eleven. Wow…........
That’s because, like a lot of others she lost her job. That won’t last. She has too much energy and desire to be helping others. She’s just a test away from her nursing license. No problem…..........
Like I said I owe her so much. Money can’t buy what she means to me, so luckily, I’m a craftsman. So this is what I came up with. She loves Angels.
She stops by often, so I had to hide it from her, till today.
Very fun giving it to her. She knew I was working on a very special inspirational piece, because I teared up when she asked what the inspiration was for the mystery cane, I was working on and I couldn’t tell her.
Wood is a golden mahogany I think. Was given to me as firewood from a furniture maker.Purple heart, rosewood, maple, cedar.
Oh, the face and hallo were carved from a small piece of walrus ivory I had leftover from a broken cribbage board I was traded.
Hope you enjoy…..........She LOVES IT!! :)
