Two for Tuesday

A quick highlight of two delightful items I found while wondering the shop this morning:

Look at this gorgeous angel figurine ~ available for Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Daughter, Friend, and even You’re Like a Daughter to Me and You’re Like a Mother to Me.  These figures are about 9 inches tall, have a hand-carved appearance, and are painted in delicate pastels.  They have a light dusting of glitter, just enough for a gentle sparkle.  Fortunately for me, the morning sunlight was streaming in through our stained glass windows, casting a beautiful glow across the angels – what a sight for 9:00 a.m.  An angel like this would be a very meaningful Mother’s Day gift for any of the mothers in your life.

To highlight an angel on your tabletop or mantle, place an embroidered doily beneath it.  I particularly like the delicate pattern of this snowflake.  Doilies are available in a wide variety of styles and sizes, and they are so inexpensive you can afford to keep a stack on hand for many different uses ~ highlight a live or silk floral arrangment, protect an antique end table from a miniature Christmas tree, or add charm and elegance to any of your chachkis.  They deserve some lovin’!
