The Festive Farmhouse
SPIRITUAL MESSENGER ORNAMENT
In many traditions, a cardinal is seen as a loved one visiting from Heaven. They are thought to be spiritual messengers and protectors, showing up just when we need them most.
The word cardinal is derived from the Latin "cardo", meaning "hinge" or "axis". Like a hinge on a door, the cardinal unites the boundary between Heaven and Earth, carrying messages back and forth.
Place this keepsake on your Christmas tree, window, or anywhere else it can be seen...and let it serve as a reminder of your loved one in Heaven. Most of all, let it bring you peace and comfort knowing that they are listening, guiding, and protecting you always.
Ornament Size: 2.5" x 4" and comes packaged with a story card (with the message above) inside a cloth gift bag.
Our ornaments are made from the most recycled material in the world, salvaged industrial steel, which we chose for its sustainability and unique patina. This also means that each sheet (batch) will differ in texture and sheen. So no two ornaments are alike.
Steel is also accustomed to rust (which on our finished ornaments, will have a dark, clouded look) so please store in the bag and avoid excess moisture. If the rust is unwelcome (some prefer the rustic look) then it can be easily cleaned with steel wool. If your ornaments are exposed to moisture during shipping, they may arrive this way.
