Je t'aime (I love you)

In any language, it's you I love

    “My daughter lives in France, so I’ve traveled there quite a bit in the last few years. I enjoy the art and architecture, the gorgeous countryside, learning the language… It’s truly a culture of romance. So in sculpting Je t’aime, a piece about love, I wanted it to have a little more style and mystique… a sophistication, an elegance… I made changes to the dress — extending sleeves and neckline. I love the challenge of starting with a solid, opaque, hard surface, and carving and carving until it looks like embellished lace. The extensive surface carving makes Je t’aime unique in the line. Although influenced by France, Je t’aime is a universal piece. The sentiment moves from the universal, to the personal one-on-one. ‘In any language, it’s you I love.'"

    Je t'aime (I love you)

    Submitted by Danielle in Pennsylvannia, November 2016

    I bought this to myself as a gift and as a remembrance of my first love. He was the first person I knew who could fully embrace and love me for who I was, even though we were so different. When I was with him, I felt relax and happy and it was like we were the only two people in the world, nothing else mattered. Our life together was exciting, full of surprises and miracles. Though it was so short and hurtful, I am still hopeful and believe in love. I do not hate you. I love you and you are still the special one. This figurine makes me feel peaceful and remind me of the lively spirit of the sweet brave girl who was in love. I would treasure the memory and love. It is really the time for me to move on.

    Submitted by Yvana Royet in Brazil, October 2016

    "There are many things that captivate your eyes but only a few that touch your heart. Go and find them!” In 2012, when I turned 40, I went through an amazing journey of self-knowledge and awareness based on the above verse called the Time of the Heart. Since then I have been trying to live my life following that precept and trying to only go after what really feeds my soul- which has not been easy! At the end of this process I was blessed with a trip to France accompanied by my family. As I was spending the day in a beautiful little town called Annecy, I came across this figure(Je t'aime /I love you)on a shelf of a small bookstore. I was delighted with how delicate the piece was, the figure’s posture as it holds the heart, the dress ... I brought it back home to Brazil and put it in my bedroom. Every day, I have the pleasure of being able to look at it and cherishing the sweet moments that life brings ... what really matters we keep forever in our hearts.

    Diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, I wanted to give one last gift to my loved ones. I have chosen to the Willow Tree figurines as they have spoken to my heart and I'm sure they will touch those I love as well. I think this purchase is the 8th or 9th (I've lost count) as I keep thinking of others I want to give to. These figurines are so beautiful and obviously created from the heart. Thank you for touching so many. By the way, I have chosen not to give these while I am still here. I have wrapped each one individually then put them in a wrapped box with a card to whom these gifts go. I want them to know my love will always be with them. Homeward Bound, Cynthia

    Submitted by Scott Cheuvront Jr in Mount Wolf, Pennsylvania, December 2015

    I bought this piece for my ex-fiance. After the birth of our daughter, our relationship took a turn for the worse. Both she and I were stressed out so much that we were ignoring each other. I worked all the time, and she was online all the time. Then this year she wanted to form a poly-relationship with two other people, another couple. She fell in love with the other man. She and he have been engaged since we, both my ex and I and the poly-relationship, broke up. I bought her this, because I am trying to get her back. I miss her, I love her. She means the world to me, and to imagine her not being in my life kills me. Even after 8 months of being apart, I want nothing more then for her to be my at my side again. This time, not how it was but how it was meant to be. She loves your work, she wants to form a collection of your pieces because they speak to her volumes beyond what words can muster. I am hoping, with this piece, that we can grow together again. I know she has moved on, but I have faith that maybe we can come together again. Thank you, for making works of art that speak these volumes. God bless you Susan. Thank you.

    I bought this for my daughter today for Mother's Day this year. She has several other Willow Tree figurines. She's such a strong and loving person, always willing to go the extra mile for friends and family. I couldn't have made it through a difficult time recently while recovering from surgery if it hadn't been for her. She's my rock and I want her to know how much she means to me. Je t'aime says it all!

    Submitted by Brenda Lee in Texas, February 2015

    My husband gave it to me because he is so thankful that I am here with him. On December 25, 2013 I had a massive heart attack. I coded four times and had a LVAD placed in my heart. I lived with it for eight months. I had to have a heart transplant. The LVAD is a pump placed in your heart to keep your heart pumping while waiting for a heart transplant. Then on June 30 I was called from my Cardiologist office and told they had a heart for me. We anxiously drove to the hospital. They started prepping me for the surgery and then my doctor came in and said we did one more test and the heart is not a match. It was a trial run. The doctor told me if they had placed that heart in me of I would have had major rejection issues. We came home disappointed but trusting God that He had the right heart for me. Then on August 25th I was called again. We went to the hospital and it was a match. I received my heart that day and pray always for the family that gave the heart to me. I have had the heart for six months and I am doing great. God was so good to me and He wanted me here for a reason. He could have taken me four times. My husband and I are so thankful and my Willow Tree reminds us of what God has done for me.

    Submitted by Alex Thallinger in Graz, Austria, January 2015

    My mom gave me this statue for my 18th birthday just a few weeks ago. I don't know if I can really describe what it means to me, though, and I don't think she knows or can understand it either. Ever since I was 14, I've been struggling with my identity. I came out as a girl loving girls to my family when I turned 15, and they've been nothing but positive and supporting, but I still didn't feel right; there was still something missing. And I continued on struggling. It took me another year and a half before I realized that I'm not a girl. This may seem confusing or even scary to you, and I can assure you I felt just the same. But after I figured out that I was agender - neither boy nor girl - I finally felt largely at peace with myself. Like another large piece of my personal puzzle was complete. Just a few weeks before my birthday, the last piece fell into place and I could finally see myself whole, if you wanna go with the puzzle metaphor; I'm Alex, and I'm 18 and a Capricorn and I'm an agender quoiromantic person. Receiving this statue so shortly after finally having everything figured out, something just clicked. For me, it's representing myself and my wholeness and my rightness. It's okay for me to be how and who I am. It represents my love for myself, that I can finally hold close. I love all of who I am. It's an absolutely beautiful piece.

    Submitted by Marta in Ottawa, ON, Canada, September 2014

    I went to a shopping mall with my daughter yesterday and we ended up in a nice shop with all sorts of inspirational things. One whole shelf in that shop was dedicated to Willow Tree. I stopped in front of it and immediately felt wonderful calmness, as though soothing and loving energy emanated from the figurines. As I have a little place for female energy in my home, I looked for a female figurine and this one caught my eye. The simplicity of it with an intricate detail of the dress--I loved it! It's now standing with my other ladies on a shelf in the living room, emanating love. Thank you!

    I have a church family, father, son and daughter, who have found their way into my heart. They gave me the Je t Aime figurine for Christmas. It is absolutely beautiful. Simple, elegant, holding a heart, which I so willing give. I am truly touched by this gift. I find myself crying when I think about them and the gift they chose for me. Its sentiment will be treasured always.

    I received this piece from a beautiful woman who was a client of the orthopedic group that I work for. She came in to see the doctor I work for and gave me this piece just because she appreciated my kindness and the way I treated her on the phone during her experience of a fractured shoulder. Every time I look at it, it reminds me of this special lady. I wish her the best!

    Submitted by Cheryl in Cornwall, UK., January 2013

    I usually send my mum some money at Christmas, as I don’t live near, so she can choose something she would like herself. Unfortunately, I lost my dear mum a week before Christmas. My dad gave me back the money and asked that I buy an ornament for her which he would place in her cabinet; she loved her ornaments. I wanted to buy her something special, something that showed how much I loved her and how much I will always miss her. I knew of the Willow Tree figures as my sister had given me ‘Sisters by Heart’ for my birthday a few years back. I love it dearly and cherish it, as I do her. My decision was made when I saw ‘Je t’aime ‘I love you.’ I knew that was the one for my mum. Thank you x

    At the exact time my father died suddenly on a softball field playing his favorite sport, my Mom was picking out this Willow Tree piece for me and getting ready to come over to my house and surprise me with it. This was my first Willow Tree. It means more to me than ANY item I have in the house. Since then, my Mom still surprises me with these amazing figurines; I always feel an instant connection with them. She just bought me one yesterday called Je T'aime. (I love you). I cried, as usual. Thank you Willow Tree. I am a fan forever.

    My husband and I just married about a month before Christmas 2010, and my grandparents had come out to see us from CA to CO. They brought along a gift for us. I couldn't believe my eyes when we opened the box and saw a "Willow Tree" box. I had been wanting one of the couples from the "Willow Tree" for so long. My husband and I were so happy to know it was the "Promise" one! We love how there are no faces and they are so simple; the couple can be anyone we want them to be, i.e., us! And now for our first Valentine's together as husband and wife, he bought me the "Je T'aime". I am so thankful to have a small collection for us now! And we have decided every Valentine's Day, Anniversary and Christmas we will get each other one, because it symbolizes our life together and our love!

    Submitted by Liz in MD, August 2012

    I bought the following pieces: Anniversary, Brother and Sister, Heart of Gold, Je t'aime, and Together this year for Christmas for my family. I did not do it to celebrate a significant event of any sort. I was in the Hallmark store and loved the brown tone of the figures -my mother is Dutch - blond hair and blue eyes, my father is African-American and Native American, and my biological sister and I are mixed. We have adopted two other kids who have become our family, and my biological sister now has a child. These pieces showed our family, various ages and colors, even ethnicities, and those pieces captured us where we are now. Who knows if my sister will have more kids or I'll have a family of my own, but these figures capture us where we are now and hold us in this moment in time, celebrating our growth thus far and looking forward to the future growth and love to be brought into our lives. Thank you for brown tones and various figures to choose from that reflect our lives.

    Hello again! This is actually my 2nd story on Je t'aime! I previously said that I'd bought a Je-t'aime greeting card for my beloved brother's birthday. It captured a very sweet and special moment in our lives. Last night we went to the same store where I'd purchased the card and we happened to see the sculpture itself. It was so captivating, so delicate, so soul-touching and so lovely! We put it where we have the opportunity to see it several times a day. It's so touching and impressive. I truly can't find the right words to do justice to this beautiful piece of art . Thank you Susan for this beautiful and unforgettable moment you marked in our lives.

    It was my beloved brother's B-Day the other day and I wanted to surprise him with a beautiful note coming from deep within my heart, written in a unique exquisite, spectacular, lovely greeting card. I was looking for such a thing when I happened to see Willow Tree products & cards; they just got me at the very first sight. They're so angelic! This specific one (Je t'aime) was all I wanted to tell him, and I did manage to surprise him. Gosh! he LOVED it! :) This Angel is giving my gift to him--my heart :) God bless you for making such elegant and lovely sculptures to express our emotions in the most beautiful way possible.

    Submitted by Draga in ILL, October 2011

    I am a nurse by profession. Becoming a nurse was the fulfillment of a childhood dream. People tell nurses, all the time, how good they are, how caring they are, what angels they are. I always said thank you when I heard those words, but I acknowledged them without truly taking them to heart. Recently, when I received such a generous compliment, I finally saw and accepted the fact that nurses are indeed angels to their patients. I bought myself a figurine Je'taime # 26231, to always remind myself that nurses are appreciated. So this goes to to all nurses around the world. You all are angels. Thank you .

    In January of this year my house burned down, i lost my four doggies in the fire, and my husband had a massive heart attack and died on the same day. My son and daughter in law gave me this angel and I hold it very close to my heart. I will most certainly give these angels as gifts in the future.

    In March of 2010, I had to relocate from my home to a different state to wait for a heart translant. I had spent the day before leaving packing to move and felt just numb. That evening my very dear friend Kayleen showed up to my door with this beautiful statue, Je t'aime. I opened it and all the emotions flooded out. It said everything, without saying a word. I received my new heart on May 14, 2010. I can hardly wait to thank the donor family who gave the most precious of all gifts. I hope to meet them in a year and when I do, they will also receive this beautiful, touching statue. Thank you.

    Submitted by Mark in WI, November 2010

    A true love story! My name is Mark. Thirty-six years ago, I worked at McDonalds when I was sixteen years old. Mary was another employee working there, hired before me. Short and adorable but already spoken for with a very nice boy, Mary was a lot of fun to work with. She left McDonalds at seventeen years old and got married. I did not see her for the next thirty-six years! During this time, I got married and had three children. Mary had three children along with seven grandchildren. Both Mary and I were divorced from the love we thought we would be with the rest of our lives. As fate has it, Mary and I connected on Facebook. We chatted for hours on end and then began talking on the phone, sometimes for six or seven hours straight! We laughed and cried a lot! God had brought us together and feelings for each other deepened the more we talked. We finally met at her place of employment in September of 2010. WOW! What a fantastic moment; I will never forget! We both were so nervous. I knew I was going to give her a kiss because a couple weeks prior, I asked her if that would alright. We are very much in love with each other but three hour distance between is difficult at times. Our love for each other will stand the test of distance and time! The Lord will grant us patience. When I was visiting Mary a couple weekends ago, she showed me her very extensive collection of Willow Tree figurines! I wanted to be the one to give her this year's newest addition, Je t'aime (I love you). I knew she had seen it in the store so I had to check with her and see if she had purchased it it or not. I descibed it to Mary in a text. She replied, "OMG, that's the one!" She didn't own it yet! I told her that I was getting it for her. Her text reply, 'I was hoping someone would buy me that someday. Someone who really loves me!' I am the one who purchased it and I am the one she loves. I can't wait to see her face when she opens the box! Both of us, at the age of 52, found someone we love and who love us back, equally! I pray for a long and beautiful life together--someday. I love you Sally Linus xoxox

    I was confirmed earlier this year. For confirmation a candidate must choose a sponsor. I had a difficult time choosing my own. I thought about it for a few months. I decided to choose an aunt that I wanted to grow closer to. Over the next few months of completing my confirmation, we grew extremely close. I can share anything that I want with her. I love her so much, but I didn't know what I wanted to give her as a thank you gift for working with me. My mom took me to the Hallmark store in the mall, I saw this beautiful figure, read the description, and was entranced at how much it described my feelings for her. I thank you so much for putting so much thought and care into every Willow Tree figure you create, God bless you.

    Submitted by Jaime in New York, February 2010

    I have very much disliked my name for as long as I can remember. My mother named me Jaime, which can be considered a man or woman's name. Whenever I would complain about my name she would always tell me that my name means "to love" in French and how beautiful it is! I have never understood her reasoning in this because neither of us are French nor do we speak the language. So, it was very astonishing that I came across the Je'taime Willow Tree! There it was staring back at me with my name written in French! Needless to say, I bought it for my mother and it is now sitting with the rest of her Willow Tree Collection. And I just so happen to like my name just a little bit more than before.

    In 1954, my then boyfriend gave me a Christmas card signed Je t'aime. The following week we became engaged. In 2005, he gave me a locket with the words Je t'aime engraved on the front for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. My husband died later that year following a courageous battle with cancer. I purchased the "Je t'aime" figurine from Willow Tree and placed it beside his photo. 55 years later those words still mean the world to me.
