My Angel



I would like to share with you this morning, one of my favourite things...my angel. She is old and shabby and I don't know where she came from originally, but I think she is special. I bought her at an antiques fair many years ago...I saw her as I was leaving, but with just £2.00 left in my purse, I hardly dare ask the price. (I was half expecting a small fortune) - But when the stall holder replied 'you can have her for £2.00'- I knew I was meant to have her!

I look at her every day. Sometimes she just stops me in my tracks, I look at her and feel at peace. I think we all need that in this hectic life- just a moment to pause.

  1. Your angel is beautiful. She looks so tender and kind. Sweet. I have an angel too, at the size like this one, but it is a new one. But very cute. :o)

  7. Love the angel Niki.
    Whenever I'm out hunting for treasures I seem to have angels following me lately. I have quite a few...old and new but I love them all and I feel so much better with them in my surroundings.

  11. Oh yes that was surely destiny that you got her for your last 2 dollars Niki! If only the angel I adore would have such a bargain price too! I love how you have decorated it with that little fabric heart!
