Are you grieving the loss of your beloved pet? Believe me, I know what that feels like. It’s heartbreaking when we have to say goodbye to one of our special companions. Would you like to commission a unique piece of art to remember them by? Read on to find out more…
20th July 2023, being the 5th anniversary of our rescue lurcher Luna’s passing, I launched ‘Luna’s Legacy’ as a way to help commemorate our pets, to celebrate their lives and their time with us, and also to raise funds for animal rescue charities.
This is the photo I took of Luna on Ballyquin beach, Ardmore, Co Waterford, and my thoughts that led me to design the ‘Kelp’ tea towel/mini wall hanging. The coastal palette came from the colours of the sky, sea, sand and her coat.
Luna was lying in wait for her sister, Seren, ready to herd her back to us when she was within reach. Luna loved to have a munch on Kelp stems that she’d find on the beach, so it seemed appropriate to feature some fronds on this design, inspired by our gorgeous girl.
If you would like more details about how to commission me to design a unique tea towel, cushion/pillow cover, tote bag, table runner or wall hanging for your beloved animal, please get in touch here and let’s work together to come up with a fitting tribute to their memory. I will donate 5% from these commissions to animal rescue charities. I’m calling this ‘Luna’s Legacy’ in her memory.
I look forward to hearing stories of your precious animals and helping to celebrate their time with you. There may be tears, but I believe that sharing our memories helps us in the grieving process. I know that creating this piece for Luna definitely helped me.
If you don’t have an animal that you’d like to create a design for, you can still support ‘Luna’s Legacy’ by buying one of my ‘Kelp’ tea towels/mini wall hangings. €1 from the sale of each will go to an animal rescue charity. Thank you.
