Here it is.. the window display at my business Little Lamb in loving memory and honour of ALL babies and children chasing butterflies in the sky.
We remember now and always all little lives gone too soon and send our love, support and thoughts to all families touched by loss of any gestation or age and no matter how long ago that loss may have been. I hope this display can bring a little bit of comfort and light to you.
Each heart in this display has been lovingly dedicated to one or more precious babies/children held in their parent’s (along with their family and friends) hearts with each butterfly on the hearts representing a little one with wings.
Some children may have had little lives but they are not a little loss. They are loved and they matter. To all parents who have experienced loss, I know this journey can feel isolating but please know you are not alone.
We will be leaving our lights on all night for the month of October for anyone who would like to view the window at your convenience, if you prefer to do so outside of trading hours (gates are open to the village 6am-10pm).
Please see photos below.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO-
Everyone for your support both to me personally and for this project. I hope everyone loves what we’ve created.
All parents who dedicated a heart to have their child/children part of this display. It was my honour to create a heart for them. (I will try send everyone a photo of your heart soon)
My husband for cutting out the wings and bodies of the butterflies and to him and my father for working out a way to put them together the way I wanted!
