This ceramic head was rescued from a skip and now resides in a raised flower bed.
I enjoyed putting this together and choosing flowers at the right angle for her to be smiling at
The title is from the story of The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde which is a wonderful story for children which contains the meaning of Easter - very short and worth a read
Enjoy your day
