Angel wings

I found these gorgeous angel wings and I just had to have them.
My sister's birthday is December 29th and I knew she would love them too.
So we both got new wings for her birthday!
I purchased them from The Bella Cottage.




I love them over my strangely shaped mantle.





They have a bit of blue under the creamy white. I do wish it was more of a pale turquoise color but this will do.



Metal "feathers" over the shabby wood.




For Christmas my husband made me a few things.
The first was this desk which was dark wood and had an ugly seating material.
He painted it white and distressed it.
This is soooo unusual for him, he does not ever paint for me. He even went out and bought Paris material to redo the seat!
He also found this old sewing machine and cleaned it all up. And it was all for FREE! Even better!


I love how old this is, I need to do research and find out what year it may be from.
Do any of you know?






He also found an old typewriter but that is for another post.



I added the French Market sign above the wings.
Too much? I can never leave well enough alone and always keep adding until it's too much!






Happy New Year to all of my bloggy friends!
I really love all of your comments and seeing all of your beautiful blogs, you inspire me so much!

  3. Shanon,
    Thank you for your holiday wishes!
    Happy New Year to you and yours!
    Looking forward to visiting in 2012.
    The angel wings are awesome! I found a huge pair in one of my favorite antique shops this summer. My husband would have killed me if I had of come wagging them home. If I could have found some place to hang them I would have bought them anyway! LOL!
    God Bless.
