"Reminder of a past & successful career in nursing!"

I gave this to my sister who just retired from nursing after 46 years. It was a unique & perfect gift. She was known for the nurse who wore red shoes, so I was able to paint the shoes with red fingernail polish to add one more personal touch! She displayed it on a table at her retirement party....I may be getting questions about where I purchased it; I will be happy to pass along the information about this artisan and your company site. Thank you for helping me find this unique gift.

"For the Nurse in your life"

When my daughter graduated nursing school we gave her this. It is fun and quirky but a good reminder of the work she does everyday.

"Reflect on the past"

I sent this to my husbands father who was in the Marines during two wars. It has meant so much for him. In spite of living the wars, he also is proud of what he did and what he is now.

"Picture this in your home"

The Rustic Photographer auto metal sculpture is one of several pieces by Armando Ramirez that I have purchased from Novica. He is one of my favorite artisans, and Ive given his creations as gifts to family members to celebrate their careers or special interests. His sculptures are unique and whimsical, and Im so impressed by the details he is able to incorporate in them. Im already looking at his collection to get ideas for Christmas.
