I thought of Yuliya when I created this, as she loves the exquisitely delicate and unique pieces. The circa 1880’s free-blown glass bowl is a very early unsilvered ornament, with its original pink paint and wire handle in near-perfect condition, especially considering that it is over 120 years old. The little angel is a piece from an original 3-D valentine. She quietly waits, poised with a slender arrow, to bring true love to the next boy or girl who passes by. She is nestled inside an amazing sweet collection of antique and vintage florals; the full-blown rose looks like it might loose a petal or two at any moment! Our earliest antique Dresden paper trimmings (including the heart) are reserved for special ornaments such as this beauty.

"I feel, as if I had opened a book and found roses of yesterday, sweet and beloved, hidden between its leaves, filling the air with transparent, barely noticeable aroma of love" (L.M. Montgomery. Anne of the Island). I glance at this ornament and can't help but wonder what life journey it had through so many years. After more than a century it has ended up here for its elegant graceful beauty mixed with enchanting dreamy fragrance of flowers and playfulness of an adorable, shy, dancing cupid to touch our hearts and souls over and over again.
