Simple and Sweet Vintage Angels

Hello my friends,
 
I was hoping to share this post yesterday, but was way too busy and it just didn't happen.
 
It's the final day of our 'Creating Christmas' link party and Carol from Art and Sand will be hi-lighting her Sweet and Simple Christmas.  If you know Carol, you know how fabulously she decorates!  Please hop over and link up.
 
 
And if you know me, I can handle the Sweet, but not so much the Simple.  lol!  Love it, but I don't know how to do it.
 
When looking around trying to decide what I could share I thought of my vintage angel collection.
 
 
Sitting on a chippy table in my living room is a small pink cabinet.  Inside is a collection of vintage angels that has evolved over the last two years.
 
 
Last year while helping my sister, Dolores decorate for Christmas, she gifted me and my sister, Jeanne with one of these sweet angels.
 
 
Then I scored this cute Gurley candle at our local thrift.  I took a photo of her twice and both times it turned out fuzzy.  I decided it's her angelic nature.  :)
 
 
I brought these two adorable ladies home from a trip to Oregon last Spring.  They seem to be waving 'hi'.

 
Angels truly are among us. . .another pair that made the trip home from Oregon.  I swear I heard angels singing
in that thrift shop!
 
 
 
I can't remember for sure where I got this one.  I think our thrift shop as well.  She's not my favorite, but she lights up.
 
 
I've had this angel for a few years.  She's not vintage, but
 I love her real feather wings!
 
 
This one was picked up this year at Home Goods.  Her bobble head made me smile!

 
And where you have angels, there's sure to be angel hair.  (wink)

 
I know that angels are watching over each and every one of us.  We all have angels here on earth that just happen to be there for us at the right time, or say just what we need to hear that day.
 
Angels help to bring 'Peace on Earth'.
 
May they be watching over you!
 
 
 
Remember all parties are staying open until Dec. 24th so continue to share your wonderful Christmas!

Your post made me realize that I don't own a single angel.

I think I need to change that.

Jann - Love all of your sweet angels. My Aunt used to have a collection and she always put them in a cloud of angel hair and it looked like they were all floating on a cloud.

The feathered angel, looks exactly like all my second--cousins...honestly. Little Danish kids, with stubby noses, blue eyes and flyaway blonde hair. Too cute. It's so much fun to bring out the old friends from years gone by for Christmas. Thanks for sharing your angels, Sandi

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Sweet little angels, I love them too. I have a few myself that were given to me by my Mother and friends. I keep mine tucked away during most of the year and bring them out for Christmas.
Very nice collection that you have, Jann.
Hugs,
Jemma

I just love your sweet angel collection, Jann! I only unpacked 3 of mine this year because 4 little visitors think they're action figures. Enjoy your band of angels!

What a sweet collection and a perfect place to display them. I have found lots of vintage angels but sold them all...they are easy sellers because they are so sweet!

These are all so sweet!
You have to understand that for me these are definitely not common, as we don't celebrate Christmas here.....
