November Shrine Challenge
This is my shrine I completed for the November shrine challenge at The Latest Trends in Mixed Media yahoo group. It was started after my mom passed away and kinda became my therapy. It repeats the word "hope" three different times. I think was subliminal, didn't even realize I did that. Then it also has a bird theme as well, it being nestlike with the egg etc. I kinda became obsessed with birds and bird motifs after my moms funeral. At my mom's funeral there was a beautiful flower arrangement from my two good girlfriends back at home. The arrangement had the sweetest bird's nest tucked in and had this poem in it, "This nest may be empty, But I've not flown far away. I am part of your memory Where I will always stay." I was so touched by the poem and called my friend to tell her thank you and how the poem touched me. She was taking care of my dog while we were away at the funeral and she said she had no idea the poem and nest were part of the flower arrangement, but was glad I liked it so well. The next day when I spoke to her she said, "You are never going to believe this, but when I came into your kitchen today there was a little bird sitting on your kitchen table." It scared the heck out of her to say the least and then after she let the dog outside because she was going crazy she came back into the kitchen and it was gone. True story. I have no explanation for it. I have a chimney, but it has a cap on it. We know of no way for a bird to get into our home. It had never happened before. Anyone have a similar experience?
