Exquisite Joy

I was the lucky and I mean "LUCKY" winner and recipient of In the Light of the Moon's recent giveaway. 

Cat's work is visual, emotional, whimsical and simply beautiful.  I was catching up on my blog and reading all of the heartfelt posts left after being away for many weeks as we rallied around my granddaughter and her surgery.  Imagine my surprise when I saw that I was Cat's winner of one of her amazing stamped bracelets.    All she asked is that I provide her with a word I would like on the bracelet.  Talk about a piece being designed just for me.  Well, two words immediately came to mind and that was "Exquisite Joy".  It was how I felt once we knew that Kaitlyn was going to be okay.  That her surgery was  a complete success and all was cured.  Exquisite Joy was the emotion that I knew from all of the prayers and good words sent my way and to be carried to Kit Kat.  Exquisite Joy.  Yes, that is what I wanted on this bracelet so as I wore it I would remember the Exquisite Joy that has come my way.

So there it is.  My lovely bracelet, hand wrought for me with the words, Exquisite Joy.

 Resting on a huge piece of barnacle with other sea treasures around it, I hope my photos did this lovely bracelet the visual it deserves. 

You must visit In the Light of the Moon and her etsy shop to see the wonderful pieces she creates.  And Cat, thank you for such a lovely bracelet.  I will cherish it always for the words it represents.  Sea Witch
