I have a friend Dana, she is a fellow artisan. She is the heart and soul behind Colors of the Woods Jewelry. She makes lovely jewelry as well as beautifully handcrafted ceramics. I asked her if she would make me one of her lovely business card holders, and in exchange I would needle felt her a bookmark. So, she asked for something that would remind her of the South, where we both grew up respectively, but only met virtually after we had long left Alabama. So, I decided on the Dogwood Tree which I thought was the state tree, but I am mistaken. Anyhow, the Dogwood Tree is a beautiful tree, and has fragrant white or pink flowers. It is a lovely sweet reminder of my years growing up in Alabama.
