The Cardinal means different things to different people. This Ornament could be displayed all year if you like. It is made of wood and crafted by hand from start to finish by me. Each will be is cut on a scroll saw so no two will be exactly alike. A true keepsake to have for years to come. I started giving special ornaments to my children, family and friends years ago. Decorating the tree each year is a lovely trip down memory lane.
