A Gift Of Love

these horse heads were a birthday

gift

from a friend i worked with...
she cried when i opened them

they were really special to her...


a gift

from her grandmother when
she was a little girl

they are really beautiful...

i love the depth of their eyes
they almost hypnotize you...

i feel like they are the

windows to their


soul...


they are bone china

the back of each one has a number on it

P-636 & P-637

Norcrest Japan

Reg US PAT. OFF.

i did some research on eBay
someone has the palomino for sale for $35.00

i am not interested in selling them

my friend doesn't ride anymore

and knows how passionate i am about

my Copper Pony

she had them packed away and knew


i

would cherish them as much as her

we both cried that day...

i felt honored to receive such a

precious gift from her!

What a thoughtful and caring gift from her heart. She must really think a lot of you to part with such treasures.

Wow...it would be hard to give away something as treasured as those horse heads. Espisially when it's a family hierloom!

aww those are pretty. What a nice friend. I love old horse sculptures and stuff. I have this plate my neighbors across the road gave me. They used to have horses. They started out with 20 acres of fenced in land and a trailer in the middle as their home. They said every morning the horses would bang on their windows for breakfast. She cried too when she gave me some of her old horse stuff then seen me using a lead rope one day.

I remember when she gave those to you, I am still surprised she parted with them. She must have known how much they would mean to you! You know I have dibs on the Palomino! :)

Paint Girl said...

That is really sweet that she did that for you. I like those horse heads, if PG gets the Palomino do I get the other one?

Mary Olson said...

Those are the best kind of gifts, receiving something that meant so much to the person giving it. Better than store bought.
