Obsessed with Angel Wings

I have come to realize that I am really quite obsessed with angel wings. 

These are the latest I have acquired. I had seen them on Sissie's and some other blogs and thought they were so pretty..and they are only 8.95!  I wanted them but thought, "oh well..by the time you pay shipping"..but then I noticed they have free shipping! I couldn't resist. Everyone needs a little treat once in awhile. They came really well boxed in a large box..I was pretty impressed. You can get them here. These are the adult size ones but I am thinking there are cute things you could do with the child size ones too. I have seen these on the backs of chairs and they look so good! Someday I would like to treat myself to these. They are more expensive, but bigger and still a reasonable price.  I did add some feathers (since I had them) to make these wings I just got a little fuller. I just stuck them in and they stayed:)

My obsession with angel wings is not a new thing...when I used to breed and show silver persians
my business name was "Angel Image" and my logo was a silver persian in angel wings.

Here is Janae at 8 years old...

Then there's Chantel at 3...

My husband wouldn't let me get pictures done with the boys in angel wings...though don't think I didn't want too!

So I wonder what it is that makes certain things so appealing to some people? It is like white ruffles and burlap--I just can't get enough right now. I think my love of angel wings will be with me for a long time.

Thanks for stopping by!

I have 2 pairs of small angel wings that I got at Pier One, they Xmas decorations but I decided to leave them out.

The large ones you have look great! I'd love to hang some over my big mirror! Thank you for the links:)

I know so well what you mean by loving certain things. The angel wings speak to me too and I just love vintage lace and linens.

I really love the photos of your girls. How sweet.

thanks for the mention too.

Sandy, I love your wings. I first saw them at Bella's Rose Cottage blog where Bella displays them in so many different ways. Worth a look.

Thanks for stopping by....the name of my blog has been the name of my Shoppe for 20 some odd years....it is just part of me. I don't know why we love what we love, but I know it feeds my soul. We don't ever have to explain it to anyone :)

I really love the way the Angel wings look on the backs of chairs, so pretty! I know what you mean about loving certain things. The pictures of your girls are so sweet.

I love angel wings also. Found some that were amazing (metal) but were on clearance for $50 EACH and I would need both of them so quickly decided that I did not need them. lol

Me too! What makes us so compelled by some things... I've wondered that myself, especially when i see other women blogger friends who like the exact same things... sometimes it's freaky. I love your angel wings... Maybe you have some Angel in you that you just don't completely remember right now. Funny about the boys... i bet you did think about it!

Who would not like angel wings!? I remember I was a kindergarten when I exchanged my role as Mary to an angel on our Christmas presentation just because I want to wear angel wings lol!

Your girls look adorable on those angel wings!

I love the angel wings, too! Yours look gorgeous. I posted about some wooden and metal wings I purchased recently (two posts ago) and I love them! I will have to look up your feathery wings to add to my collection.
