I am blessed…
are you?
The answer to that is of course, yes….
It doesn’t matter what your circumstances are
there is ALWAYS, ALWAYS someone 
somewhere who would look at your life and think 
YOU are blessed.

Every day we hear of the awful things that man inflicts on man
This week alone I have heard of 
children killed in a school shooting
a baby abused to death by her parents
a permanently crippled woman hit by a drunk driver
a teen who died after partying with friends

and it’s only Wednesday.
So, I am blessed

I have a thing for angels
I take pictures of angel statues
Have angel figures in my house
and have wanted a pair of angel wings ever since I saw the first 
Victoria secret commercial
I know…from God to Victoria’s Secret in a couple sentences
that’s how my mind works

Here is one of the blessings in my life
a friend named Mandy who also happens to be my sister-in-law
We’ve been joined into the same family for many years
but I’ve only recently (within the past couple years) gotten to know her.
We have so much in common and I am blessed to have her as a friend.

However, every now and again she finds something at the thrift store

Yes, she found these at a thrift store.
Like a good friend and SIL I SWEAR I NEVER asked her to give them to me
But, she did…last week
am I happy or what?

I haven’t been able to decide what to do with them

in the foyer?

Maybe at Christmas 

the living room?

Not bad actually

But, deep in my heart
I knew where they belonged

On Coco
she deserves them

a perfect fit


I’m glad I didn’t have to make them myself but you could! 
They’re made from poster board, 2 layers with feathers 
then glued together…you can see in one pic where they’re coming apart a bit
I need to glue them. 
Then elastic shoulder loops if you want to wear them in your underwear.
If you find a tutorial….let me know

These pictures were edited with Pixlr
I think this is my new go to
love some of the effects and really like those torn paper borders I tried

try it and let me know what you think
