Angel Wings & Faded Charm Wins

Angels have always been a favorite of mine. I have a huge collection of angel figurines that date back to when I was in Junior High. We redecorated my bedroom in roses and angels and I was always on the lookout for a new angel to add to the collection. It seems that I am seeing a lot of angel wing ornaments this year and I love them. Of course I had to make some myself!
Just the simple shape of the angel wings is so pretty. But add some vintage French script, glitter, rhinestones and some crinkled seam binding and it is beautiful and elegant! They are fun to make too!
I recently won a fabulous giveaway from Kathleen at Faded Charm. She sent the sweetest package of goodies. They just so happened to arrive on Saturday when I was sick with the flu, so that made me feel just a little better!
I love this cone covered in sheet music, white feathers and a beautiful image of Mary and baby Jesus. It fits in perfectly on my tree.
I love this big burlap stocking with pretty white ruffles. Tucked inside is a vintage music card. I have it hanging on the chair where I do my blogging.
And this cute little bottle brush tree sits atop a vintage spool wrapped in sheet music. I think it looks just right next to the birdhouse my grandpa made for me!
Thank you so much Kathleen-I love my gifts!

Your Angel wings are lovely. Do you know that I used to collect Angels too? They are very special to me. I have seen a lot of the angel wings lately, and I love them. Your Grandpa's birdhouse is a treasure. Merry Christmas!!

I love all of your fun gifts and your angel wings are perfect. I should try some of those! There just isn't enough time!

I have to say that I have seen the ruffled skirt on Pinterest and wanted to try that too! Yours is by far the prettiest I have seen. I don't know if it is your fabric or the tiny folds you made but it is fantastic! I WANT MORE TIME BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!! And I want to make one as cute as yours! (BTW - pinning it!)
