The Gift of Prayer Flags


What wonderful flags I received from 3 of the participants in the  Creative Swaps  group hosted by Lenna Andrews, I love each and every one. Here they all are, gently blowing in the breeze in my front yard as you come up the walk way. They whisper their prayers to the universe to spread Love, Thankfulness and Nurturing. Each is hand made by a genuine Artist with so much talent and love. First we have Terri's of Artful Affirmations and I have shown a close up below, Terri I just love this flag and I'm in awe of you beautiful work:) Thank you so much:)
Terri's "May You All Feel Love"
Next we have a beautiful flag from Jewels of  Just Tickety Boo and I love the image of the little girl and how she is holding the bouquet of flowers. Oh so sweet and plenty to be "thankful" for. Jewels I love your flag and I especially love vintage images of children. Thank you so much:)
Jewels "Thankful"
Next,  last but not least,  we have a wonderful flag from Jan Smith of  Jan's Arty Junk  with the word "Nurture" which we all need :) I love the metal bird Jan has added to the nest and all the vintage buttons, lace and trims. So creative and such a beautiful vintage looking work of Art, Thank you so much Jan I love it!

I hope you have all enjoyed my gifts of Prayer Flags and be inspired to create some of your own as they make wonderful gifts for a friend or loved one and they represent a beautiful bit of Art from the Heart.

What a wonderful collection Marilou - glad mine was one of them - they look just lovely together. Waiting for the right "light" to get outside and snap a pic of my set. Thanks again for participating in the swap...J

Marilou how fortunate a woman you are to receive these gorgeous prayer flag gifts from all three wonderfully creative women.
They are such special messages and look wonderful hanging and swaying in the breeze.
I know I will be making some too when I get a bit of space!
Sending love and hugs

Marilou,
These prayer flags are so special that your bloggy friends gave you. I especially like the first one about Love. It is beautiful. It would be so nice to have one hanging in the wind in my back yard. What a great idea.

Such precious prayer flags! "Thankful" is my favorite one. My flags weather so fast outside I'm thinking of hanging them on the porch instead.
