Jeanne d'arc style angel wing ornies...{update}

I purchased an assortment of angel wings at a garage sale this summer and a few of them were already in the giveaway pile until this past week when I had an Ah-ha moment. Do you ever have those?   Look and look at something that is just plain ugly and all of a sudden an idea pops into your head?  Then later that idea actually comes to fruition? Love it!  I quickly yanked them back out of the pile and started creating.

I must say from almost giving them away to having them turn out like this...I am very happy.
Several angel wing ornaments hanging out together makes me smile. :)

In true Jeanne d' arc style,  I added a cross to this one.
These will be for sale soon. Not sure if they will land in my Etsy store or if I will just sell them off my blog.
I tried really hard to save this post until tomorrow, but I just couldn't do it. :)  However, I will be joining Kathleen over at Faded Charm for White Wednesday this week and I hope you can join us too. There is always much inspiration to see. I am off to try and find some more angel wings...


Update: Imagine my surprise when I was looking at these photos again today {Tuesday} and realized that I stamped the script on most if not all of them UPSIDE DOWN! Oh my goodness...I really need to pay more attention to what I am doing.  Still love them though...:)

So pretty! They remind me of Malachi 4:2 "...the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings."

These are so beautiful Sandi, and I would have never noticed the upside-down part if you hadn't said anything. They are breathtaking no matter what. I can't imagine how they looked 'before', but your clever hands truly made them lovely.

Oh Sandi....when I saw these wings you so lovingly created, I immediately thought of "Toby's wings" hanging from the birdcage in my kitchen - which always melt my heart every time I see them. ♥ There's just something so so special about your wings, sweetie. Truly a gift made by an angel... :)

Do you by any chance have any left? my sweet friend lost her baby chase last week, and a group of friends are doing an angel tree for her sweet family. I would love to buy one for her....

Sandi said...

Ashley Biddle I hope you get this. It is the only way I know to contact you since your blog is private and your email is not tied to it. I do have more left of these beautiful wings. Send me an email to hsb@frontiernet.net.
Blessings~

I have been looking for some homemade angel wing ideas for this year's Christmas ornaments. We lost our mom in October and angel wings would be so fitting. These wings are beautiful! I was disappointed to see they are from 2011. I am wondering if you would share your how-to details for creating the wing so I may recreate these. Look forward to hearing from you.

Cheers,
Jess
