Walk with me. And along the way, we'll share... everythingMy sister, my friend$37.00Description
“A sister can save your life. A safety net. You never laugh harder than when you’re laughing with your sisters... or very close dear friends. You share the same history; the inside jokes that no one else would understand in the same way. A sister knows your faults and somehow puts up with them, and loves you in spite of them.
“I have two sisters – one nearby and one farther away. When I’m with either one, or both, the walks we take and the talks we have are like one long ongoing conversation... we cover all subjects about anything and everything. By my side, my sisters are with me, in the present moment. This piece is about the rich and sustaining, comfortable constancy of lifelong friends.”
From each other, over the years, we gather strength, through laughter and tears.By my side$85.00Description
"I have two sisters—as far back as I can remember, the three of us have always been very connected. Even if they are far away, I feel like they're always right here, by my side.
"It's the little, fun, silly moments—thousands of them—that fill me up when I'm with my female friends, be they sisters, girlfriends, cousins... Shared experiences and laughter form a lifelong reservoir of trust that allows us to be vulnerable around each other. And out of vulnerability comes strength. I know I can count on my sisters and girlfriends whenever I need support... or a good dose of humor."
Forever true, forever friends

I have one piece myself, for which a friend purchased just this Christmas for me. My husband and I have started the Navity collection for his 91 yr old grandmother, who is very Catholic and very much devoted to her faith. I thought what better gift to start and continue for her, that she would cherish all year long. We started out with the large Mary and Joseph statues, and then realized that as we added pieces that there were two different nativity stories being told, and we had mixed the two. So this next Christmas, we are going to get the smaller Mary and Joseph and animals, since we already had bought the crèche two years ago. She truly loves each piece and can't wait to see what we will add to it. When she passes is it will pass on to me and on to my daughters, and we will continue to add to and cherish it and always know that it made her so very happy. But for now I'm truly grateful that it's something for her to look upon daily to bring her some most needed peace and love!Read More >

I have been a collector of your beautiful figurines for a few years. I have over 25 and my daughter is starting my nativity for this Christmas. They all have such beautiful meaning and I relate them to all my family members. I give them as gifts also to say thank you, or to tell someone how much they mean to me. My best girlfriend and I have been friends for over 52 years. We live many miles apart and only see each other once or twice a year. We talk almost everyday. We have had our ups and downs but have remained friends through the years. She has many health problems and is the caretaker of her 87 year old mother. I give her so much credit for caring for her mom by herself and giving her mom the comfort she deserves and needs. She is the best friend everyone should have. I know I am forever grateful for her loving friendship. Forever Friends reminds me of us telling each other confidences, stories and secrets over the years, so I am sending it to her for Christmas. Thank you SusanRead More >

I had not known the significance of your Willow Tree figures until I received one,"Friendship" #26155, from our "Card Players Therapy Group" as a gift after the death of our grandson. This gift has brought much comfort to us. Soon after that we had to put my faithful Hearing Assistant Dog, Monte, down which just about broke our hearts, and The same group of friends sent me "The Angel of Friendship #26257. Along with this gift each friend send a note and one friend sent the following poem: An Angel for you Janet by: Katie On Monday we gather to play the game, Hand and Foot is its name. But in deed we gather for so much more Kind words and friendship are always in store. We come from places diverse and different. But somehow it seems we became friends in minutes. We care and share and take time for each one And it never fails we always have fun. You are the one who we miss the most Since winters you aren't on our coast. We send this Friendship Angel to you With our thoughts, prayers and wishes too. Each time you look at her you will know We miss you and think of you, ever so Let her be a reminder of the Mondays we share And our friendship so Special and yes so Rare. Friends make the world a better place. I thank your Artist Susan Lordi for designing these beautiful, inspirational figurines that are so very meaningful to the giver and the receiver.

I am purchasing this plaque for my very best friend in the world! Our friendship began 18 years ago when we were only 5 years old! We haven't lived in the same state since we were 11 years old, but have remained extremely close throughout all of these years. We were the maids of honor in each other's weddings and we're now each the godmother to each other's daughters. She lives in Turkey right now, and we send packages to each other constantly. We recently started including Willow Tree items in the packages, and I've decided this is the next one to go to her! This plaque perfectly represents our lifelong friendship.Read More >

I gave this plaque to my daughter for Christmas a few years ago. She was 14 at the time and the year had been a tough one for us as a family. Every night I would lie in bed with her just before she would go to sleep and we would talk about our day and many times about what was going on within our family and how we felt; both sharing deeply. On the back of the plaque I wrote, "For our nightly chats. I love you so." I treasure my sweet girl, who is now 16, and the bond we share not only as mother and daughter but as friends.Read More >

My story began with Wisdom. I fell in love with Willow Tree and fawned over the figurines in our local gift shop. My favorites list grew and grew and I am beginning a collection. I now have Heart and Soul, Love of Learning and Friendship added to my Wisdom piece. I hope to acquire them for as long as I can. They give me peace and joy just to gaze at one. Thank you, Susan, for your beautiful creations.Read More >
