Giveaway! Wendell August - American Heirloom-Quality Handmade Metal Gifts

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Wendell August creates the most beautiful heirloom-quality gifts I have ever seen. They are an American company, located in Grove City, Pennsylvania and have been handcrafting each piece since 1923, as America’s oldest forge. Their line includes giftware, jewelry, and entertaining and home accessories. This stunning Dogwood Wall Cross is just one of their many beautiful Christian gifts.
Since each piece is handmade, no two items are ever the same. Just look at the detail and artistry in this cross, and how it reflects the light! This old forge fine pewter measures 8 inches by 5/5 inches. The legend holds that the Dogwood tree was once very large and its strong and sturdy wood was used to build the cross on which Jesus was crucified. Because of its role in the crucifixion, it is said that God both cursed and blessed the tree. It was cursed to forever be small, so that it would never grow large enough again for its wood to be used as a cross for a crucifixion. At the same time, however, the tree was blessed so that it would produce beautiful flowers each spring, just in time for Easter.
The most unique part of the legend is that the petals of the dogwood actually form the shape of a cross. Upon close examination, it can be seen that the blooms of the tree always have four petals. And the tips of each of the petals are indented, as if they bear a nail print. There are even colors in the petals that bring to mind the drops of blood that spilled during the crucifixion.
The back of the Dogwood Wall Cross features a hook for easy hanging. I chose a wall between my kitchen and family room to hang this gorgeous piece of art, so it's one of the first things seen when walking into my house. Wendell August offers hundreds of unique and meaningful items for the home, including dishes, servers, trays, platters, trivets, hundreds of lovely jewelry items, plus gifts for Mother's Day, Father's Day, graduation, baby, wedding, retirement, anniversary, holidays, and much more.
