Show and Tell Friday for October 3
Today for show and tell, even though I am quite late getting this posted, I want to share something beautiful that a friend made for me. This dear friend wishes to remain anonymous, but she is a talented craftswoman and I just had to show what she created to encourage me.
It is a beautiful autumn tag with the theme of "peace". She designed this tag around a photo and a couple of scanned leaves I had sent her just for fun. She put everything together so beautifully to convey God's peace that passes understanding.
Here's the photo I sent. We took this last year at Lake Tarleton State Park. Here's a scan of a pretty pink and green leaf... one of the first of the season. And here's a scan of two red leaves. Now see what my friend did with these elements! I love the way she put everything together. Notice the two little moose -- one at the water's edge and one standing in the water. The quote at the bottom of the tag is from Elizabeth George's book on Psalm 23, Powerful Promises for Every Woman. What a blessing this tag has been to me! I have it prominently displayed on my hutch among other autumn treasures.
So that is my simple, but oh-so-meaningful show & tell for today. To see what others have shared for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to There is No Place Like Home

I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
