To all who enter, welcome hereWelcome Here$29.00Description
“The title of this piece is from one of my favorite old Christmas Carols called “Welcome Here”. It’s a cheerful and inviting song. I wanted the wreath to be a beautiful and intricate cut-metal design that appears to come forward and be presented as a symbol of welcome, home and hospitality. The wreath is dominant, but it’s also lacy and airy — almost musical in the repetition of its pattern. I think the contrast of dark rust against her white dress makes an interesting relief. Welcoming friends and family into our homes at any time of year, and particularly the holidays, is a universal joy. Welcome Here celebrates this tradition."

The pineapple is a symbol of infertility. After our 1st failed IVF cycle we brought this to mark our struggles and offer us hope to the future.Read More >

I was shopping in Frankenmuth Michigan and as I was about to exit a shop this figurine caught my eye. I’ve always loved them and said once we started a family I would start my collection. I saw this one and started crying in the middle of the shop. I’m currently going through infertility treatments as I have stage IV endometriosis and my husband we found out recently also has fertility issues. It’s been a hard few months so I decided to go on a girls weekend to relax and reset my mind before the next cycle. Although I know that this figurine isn’t made for this meaning, the pineapple has become the globally recognized symbol of good luck in the TTC (trying to conceive) community, perhaps because of the warmth, welcome and friendship that the TTC community offers each other. A lot of women in my support group wear lucky pineapple socks to treatments and tests, or shirts, jewelry, etc. so when I saw this figure it couldn’t have been more perfect as the start of my collection, representing our struggle, but also hope. I cannot thank you enough, she is now next to my bed as a reminder to not give up. I cannot wait to start the rest of my collection in the hopefully near future. Until then, thank you again.Read More >

Her Mummy died 5 years ago suddenly of sudden cardiac arrest aged 32 she was 24 weeks pregnant and we lost Ruby 14 hours later, Lucy was 5. Her Daddy Joe would not accept the end of life treatment offered and instead researched treatment in Mexico costing £300,00 We set up Lucy's Pineapple fund( Lucy's favourite fruit) and with justgiving and a whole lot of fundraising 6 weeks on we have raised an unbelievable £236,000!!

I met my wife 13 years ago this april. 13 is my Lucky number. When I met my wife she had gone trough breast cancer. Now 13 years are coming up and sending Gracious to my wife is how I feel; she has a Warm Heart. I was out of work at the time we met, having had back surgery a few years before. We met on Match.com. Most women stopped talking when I told them I was not working--not Lorraine. She liked me for me even after going tough breast cancer. She asked me would you like a women with only one breast .Yes I said; I am not looking to go out with you for your body parts. It's your warm heart! I love my wife. She has about 33 angels and the Christmas Nativity. She told me for her Valentines Birthday she wants more angels.Read More >
