I happened to mention in an earlier post that I love to collect Cherubs..... Angels, too. But, since this is the Season for Love with all of its Cupids and Cherubs, I thought I would take a little trip around my house and just see how many I have. It's funny, when you start looking, you realize just how much your collection has grown. There are several others sprinkled here and there in the garden.... resting on rock walls or sleeping amidst the plants, but.... since it's freezing outside I thought I would just share my indoor collection, and save the outside Cherubs, Garden Angels and Fairies for warmer days....
Let's start here with the tiniest one. This little friend I stumbled upon in a shop while on vacation in Palm Beach. It is a wine stopper, and since I so love my glass of wine after a long day, he's kept very busy keeping the bottles fresh. Isn't he just the cutest?
Next, is another tiny cherub perching on a shell in my conservatory. The shell is filled with glass seashells, starfish, and other sea creatures....
Next is a tiny Cherub which was a gift from my Mom.
Look closely.... she's sucking her thumb.... a favorite
pastime of mine when I was a tiny Cherub in my Mom's
This sitting Cherub is perched at the base of a Grandmother clock in my foyer.
This one sits on top of a bookshelf.
Remember these? This vignette was featured at Christmas. See the tiny
Cherubs on top of this family photo. This was a photo taken at
my son's engagement party last September. One day
I will do a post about the house in the background....
it belongs to the man that I am dating......
And last, but not least.... this huge wall hanging that sits over
my tub. It looks like it's made of stone, but ..... surprise
it is as light as a feather it's made of that faux stone...
I've fooled many people.... especially
the man that hung it for me!
What do you love to collect?
