paper, glitter and tinsel creations

I’m in love with these Victorian folk art decorations. They make me smile.

After receiving this Winter Wishes angel as a gift from my husband’s aunt Annie several years ago, I’ve sought out this style.

This hanging decoration is by Nicol Sayre

I picked up these Peace stars at a small gift shop in the neighborhood on sale after the holidays a few years ago. I’m taking a guess that these are by Nicol Sayre as well. The tag says Midwest, and according to online sources, she licensed her creations through Midwest from 2002-2008. 

They remind me of Christmas from my childhood at my Grandparents house, where a silver aluminum tree was always on display.

This wintery angel spoke to me from a small garden shop in Multnomah Village last December. A Dee Foust creation.

Dee creates a line of licensed collectibles for Bethany Lowe Designs. This angel is one of those creations.

I've been doing a bible study on angels. In the bible, angels are described and named in the masculine. However, in shops, angels are depicted as feminine. I wonder why? Maybe it seems appropriate to stick the tree up their skirts. Pretty pics. :)
