I believe in angels...

"Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels."
Hebrews 13:2
Although I don't have an actual collection, I have accumulated several angels over the years and I thought December was the perfect time to share some of them with you...


This beautiful angel was purchased as a Christmas decoration many years ago from TJ Maxx...


Well, he never did get put away with the Christmas decorations that year because I fell in love with him. So now we enjoy him year-round on the living room hearth next to our church birdhouse.


This cast iron cherub door knocker is sometimes used as a decoration, sometimes as a paperweight...


This is another angel that started out as a Christmas decoration. She was originally painted gold when I got her from Wal Mart but I repainted her and hung her above the family room window seat. That was years ago and she's never been taken down.


I've applied full bodied cherub appliques to my dining room hutch...


... and cherub head appliques to the jelly cupboard...


During the summer, a pair of cherub heads (actually curtain rod holders) are always nestled among the flowers on the deck... (Oh my - it's going to be a long six months before I'm able to enjoy flowers out on the deck again!!!)

Hi Donna, I love angels, too. They are among us, and we all need to believe. Yours are precious. I have a few, too. Thanks for sharing.

That is the nice thing about angels. It is quite acceptable to have them out all year!
