A Couple of New Cherubs and a Teacup/Mug Exchange



The Enchanting Rose

This will be the third time I have participated in Stephanie's Tea cup and mug exchange. Stephanie hosts this wonderful exchange and you can read about it at her blog The Enchanting Rose by clicking on the button above. She had nearly 60 participants the last time so you can imagine that a great deal of time was spent organizing, matching everyone up and sending out notifications to everyone.

Thank you Stephanie!

So if you are curious, eager to join in or just want to sit and watch this exchange unfold, please stop by to pay Stephanie a visit.

-----------------------------------------

Last night I completed two more angels for my etsy shop. These two are slightly different as I added a shabby bow and a little wooden star to the wire hanger. They also have vintage flowers in their hair.


This one is called "A Touch of Spring"  


She's pretty cute!


...and she has little vintage flowers in her hair.


Meet "A Bit o' Sunshine."



She's very sweet too!


I like the addition of the muslin bow and the wooden star.


Well that's all for now. I am working on another post to tell you about my "Together Tuesday" Adventure with my friend Debbie!  Episode 1--Making Chocolate Macarons
OH MY GOODNESS......We had a ball and they are delicious! More about that later!

STAY WARM!
.....and have a great day!

  1. Hi Nancy, Oh I just love your new angel creations. They are so adorable and creative. I must go browse your shop. So sweet of you to also share Stephanie's teacup/mug exchange. I am not able to participate this time around but I know you girls will have a wonderful time and I hope to visit around too and see the pretties.
    Thank you dear friend for stopping by and your kind comment. Your words just touch my heart. Hope you are doing well in all the snow you've had and staying safe and warm.
    Have a great rest of the week.
    Blessings and Joy,
    CM

  2. Hi Celestina,
    thank you very much for your kind comments! Many years ago I stitched up the prototype for this angel. I used the ruffled header of a curtain as I had recycled the curtain for something else. It came out so cute but now I have to make the ruffle to shirred on the clothespin. Glad you like them! Yes, i look forward to the exchange as you know. So glad we got to meet through it. We are doing ok with the snow but getting very anxious for spring. We got 14" the other day, getting more tonight and a big storm possibly on Monday. Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it so much. Linda
    Ps I dug out some knitting needles and crochet hooks. Going to try it again to see if I can get more uniform size to my stitches. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Linda,
    You are such an inspiration to me! Sweetest little angel creation ever, and beautiful detail too.
    I know you are being pounded by cold, rough weather and lots of snow.
    So stay safe and warm!
    Sending you Texas size Hugs,
    Jemma

    1. Good morning Jemma! Thank you for such kind words! These little cherubs are so fun to make. I have 6 more that I am working on! Yes, it is true we are getting a lot of winter weather!!! 14 inches one day earlier in the week, (after the blizzard the week before) and this morning we woke up to another 4" and there is another storm on the way for Monday....Ironically on my journal page (optimistic) I put an Eeyore quote with words to the effect--it's still snowing and it is so freezing, but we haven't had any earthquakes lately....always makes me laugh so I am referring to that a lot this week! Thanks Jemma for the Texas sized hugs too!!!

  5. Your clothes pin angels are so cute. Love the slippers too. My daughter bought me a pair similar for Christmas and loving how they keep me warm. Been thinking of making some so your post inspires me. Loved visiting your site. Thanks for finding and visiting me from Roses of Inspiration. :)

    1. Hi Peabea,
      Thank you! I think fleece for both layers would make a nice warm slipper! It is a McCalls Pattern M6715. If you get around to making them, I would love to see them! I dug out a fleece mitten pattern the other day and I am going to stitch up a couple pairs for myself.
      Your post of the painted photograph is amazing.....I love the flowers in the foreground! Thanks for coming by.....

  9. What sweet angels are all around you! It's amazing how you give each one a different personality with a change of frock and other adornment, like they speak in different voices even.

    Can't wait to hear about the baking session. Maacarons look so difficult.
