A Perfect Fit



One of my dearest friends sent me a beautiful ornament two Christmases ago.

I believe it's a  Russian ornament depicting the Blessed Mother and her sweet baby.

I loved it at first sight and still do. It's quite exquisite.

This past Christmas, another dear, long-time friend gave me a beautiful brass stand to hang something on.



The Russian ornament was an absolute perfect fit.

As you see, neither the stand nor the ornament made it up to the attic after Christmas. 

I want to keep them out year-round.

Since both came from beloved friends, seeing the ornament on the stand makes me doubly happy.

DOES KNOWING WHO GAVE YOU A GIFT MAKE IT MORE SPECIAL TO YOU?

The two are a perfect pair. So lovely. Having received them from a friend would make them all that more special.
