Is  she not the most beautiful gal in the world? Her Quote says What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparision to what lies inside of you. By Ralph Waldo Emerson
Another view of this great gift.
A close up of her inner beauty.

I was honored and surprised to receive this wonderful gift from Jenny K. last night. I know we all have admired the series that she is doing that she calls her "Wisdom Gals" but I never expected to get one. What a special gift this is.  I'm afraid that my skills as a photographer leave a lot to be desired but I think you can see how special she is. She will have a place of honor in the shop where I can look at her everyday and be reminded of the meaningful words that she represents. This is not, by any means the only gift that I have gotten from Miss J.. She has also given me the gift of friendship, laughter and support...and a whole lotta love. You rock big time girlfriend. Love ya, Geo

Jenny - Another absolutely fantastic "wisdom gal"!

I found a wood piece at an estate sale the other day, and have set "her" up in my sewing room and am waiting to see "what she wants to be" - you've inspired me!!! :)

Thanks, Kathy

Ladies, thanks so much for the kind words about her. She was a fun gal to make and those green drawer handles were so special - I had to put them to the right use. They worked perfectly with this gal. Her hat is a clock gear (ideas, always thinking creatively...) as well as a part off an old typewriter and a wonderful brass knob. Her message is housed in an old projector lens and framed with a cool old bearing.

Big Hugs,

JennyK

georgiamoon writes: I know, she is pretty great huh? Her arms are made from some old handles that I had given to J. She told me that she had used them in a special project but she wouldn't tell me or post it until I saw it. Now we know why. The base is a large faucet handle that she told me represents the four corners of the earth N, S, E, & W. I love that because no matter where you are, it is what is inside of you that matters. Her art has such depth and meaning... and now I am a proud owner of a beautiful piece. I am a LUCKY gal.Georgia Posted: 7:42 pm on January 9th
junkermidge writes: How great to have a friend like that. Wow! And that gal is super cool, like all of Jenny's creations are. Is the base
a burner from a stove? And what are the arms? You two have really inspired me with your people creations. I don't consider myself at all artistic, but I want to give them a try, too. (I'll probably just copy you guys!) Thank you. Thank you.
