Found Object Angels

 Perhaps some of you are wondering... "where the heck has she been???" (or maybe not)
In any case, I feel bad that I have neglected my precious blog for so long.  My New Years resolution is to be better. :)  I think I put too much pressure on myself to have fabulous pictures and/or wonderful things to say, and just need to let that go and enjoy sharing things with you all.

And so on that note... I would like to share with you the talent of my wonderful hubby. He got an idea on Pinterest, (Yes, I am happy to say he has become a Pinterest junkie!!! LOL!) and decided to create his own version from found objects.  Aren't they fabulous??? 

I kept the top angel because she was just too wonderful to part with...
 
This one is just as fabulous, but really... who has room for 2 giant angels??? LOL! So she is hanging in my space at the Tattered Nest waiting for someone to bring her home.

Now I know why hubby saves all kinds of things that I look at and think, "Great... more junk to store in the backyard." But he always finds uses for the things he collects. 

Here is my angel hanging in the family room. She makes me happy every time I look at her.


Very soon I will share my holiday home tour and some really cool news as well.
I promise not to be gone so long next time.

Wow, talk about inventive, really cool. He collects kinds of things I would for when project comes along but hubs does what he can to discourage me. Shame on him.
Not often we see things out on curb out where we live but don't get chance to grab when we do spot road saves. If was just me would be in back of car in heart beat but hubs keeps going.
Both of your hubs angels are incredible, what some people can come up with from junk is awesome. So well thought out how he put them together. Glad for you, got to keep one of them.
Have wonderful rest of week.

I love the angels your husband made. I have the same type of "junk" and must make some angelic beings myself. Sometimes we must step away from blogging, or any other activity for that matter. When we return, it is often with a refreshed attitude and energy.

Dear Karen:
I have missed you! I should talk--I didn't post in my blog for six months and finally got back to it. Anyway, your husband is very talented and I'll bet his creations will be very popular on sale. I hope you have a wonderful, joyous Christmas, my friend! Love, Linda
