Another great Auction find!

Well now that I've wowed you with the leg, how about I show you another great win at the Auction!

I had some fun playing around with photo editing on this one. 
She does have some weird eyes, but otherwise she's quite beautiful.

She's a wood carving and someone put some serious love in creating her...
 Maybe she's a he, I'm not sure.  But angel!

I'd like to keep her but she's going to the shop.  I'll just leave her right here in the dining room for the time being.  She kinda likes watching over things.

Okay, that's it.  Let's get out there this week and make, create, sew, bake, knit, paint, photograph, write, repurpose......or whatever your heart's desire.  Just be sure that you share your love with the rest of us.

Oh Sissy, what a find! What a sweet angel and such a great one to watch over you! She/He can watch over you too, when you take her to the store! She may not be there long, so precious. Think she has light eyes!

Kathy Moreland said...

He/She is adorable! I love angelic thingies!! :)

What a gorgeous piece, Sissie. I think that baby will fly right out of the shop (ho-little pun there maybe?;>) You find the best things...well...even the screw in leg is fabulous! lol xo Diana

ps. You are tired of Gizzy and Gabby yet, I don't suppose? lol

I would have a hard time letting her go.

Jane said...

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Wow, what an amazing find...But, I got to say, you are right...The eyes are a little creepy lol!

Your angel is really cute, Sissie. Actually the angels in the Bible are all male but we see female angels everywhere, from magazines and photos to decor, etc. I have a friend who insists that female angels are really fairies. It makes for some interesting conversation! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day.

She's a beauty Sissie! You sure made that chair beautiful too. I don't think I'll ever like anything more that white with pink toile!

I definitely have that blog disease too. If you find a cure, would you send me a bottle of it???

I hope all is great with you now sweetie and that you are enjoying the weekend.
sending hugs...
