Memory Star Giveaway

A Mother’s Work Stained Glass Stars

Memory Star Image

In our kitchen window, we have three stained glass stars. When the sun shines through the window, our kitchen is filled with beautiful color and we can’t help but smile. These stars are the work of a dear friend and that too makes them special.  Over the years I began to give the primitive stars, from A Mother’s Work, to friends that suffered the loss of a loved one.   When my father passed away, a close friend of ours gave us one of Cindy’s beautiful stars and it dances on the window sill with two other stars.  Every time I look at them I feel better.

Memory Star Giveaway

Kitchen window


This holiday season, I thought about how, like us, many are a bit blue from missing loved ones. So I thought I would like to give the gift of Cindy’s stars to 5 friends of The Tiniest Tiger.  My hope is that when you place your star in your window, that the colorful little star will bring a smile to your face and comfort to your heart.

    Congratulations to the winners!
    Good to see so many entries.
    We never forget our loved furbabies.

  2. Marie Rowland says

    I have lost so many of my four legged buddies and I miss every one of them as they each have their own special spot in my heart and I have three kitties right now and I hope that they are with me for many more years. They are so much a part of the family and now that all my two legged children have families of their own these four legged babies are my kids now:-)

  3. I, like others, have lost many dogs and cats over the years, as well as family. I miss them all.

  4. SykoFanGurl says

    My kitty Peek-a-Boo…I miss her. I think about her all the time, even all these many months later. I get teary-eyed everytime. This would hang the star in my mom’s kitchen window by her chair. My mom loved her as well, so very much, and was with her when she passed. The star would be a gateway, a portal to the other side of the rainbow bride, where we could look at it, smile, and remember her sweet soul.

  5. I am missing many loved ones that include my mom, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. I have more family members in Heaven then I do here on Earth.

  6. Alyson Amsterdam says

    Missing my Dad.

  7. Sherree Smith says

    I would be honored to win a star. I have many cats that I have lost over the years–the latest one being Angel–but I would hang that star in my window so that it could shine it’s light for all of them, including Gracey. Thank you for letting me share my love for her. <3

  8. We would like this in memory of my father in law. Thank you

  14. Denise pechinsky says

    The loved one that I miss the most is my cat whiskey. She was 16 years old when she passed away. I had her since she was 2 weeks old in 1994. In 2007 she traveled with me by car to Colorado from Florida with no problems. I called her whiskey 7 states after the trip. She was the best thing that ever happened to me. My precious sweet baby. She passed in 2010. My heart will never mend. Thank you for reading my story.

The other was my beloved, Hayley, she was a month away from turning 4, she was about 7 weeks old when we got her and turned into the best dog. We did everything together. I miss her every day.

    Such beautiful stars! I’m missing our sweet Sassie. She was such an important part of our lives, our joy, our fun, our love. She was 19 when she went to the Rainbow Bridge. It’s been 2 years but it still feels so painful. She loved Christmas time, too. She holds the record of all our cats in how many ornaments she could get off the tree without them breaking!! She was very gentle … she would gently bite the hook the ornament was attached to and drag it all over the house! And she’d be talking the whole time!!! Yup, that’s our Sassie. And I miss her.

  70. Shadow dance ranch kittehs says

    Remembering our Papa Bill. He passed away 9 years ago last month. Also our Great Grammy passed away 8 years ago this month. We miss them so much.
