Seeing Angels...

Well, if you didn't already think I was "crazy" by the things I come up probably will after this post :)

For a while now I had been thinking these old wood hangers would make perfect angel wings...I just hadn't found the right "body" yet.  Then, as I was sorting (on my never-ending mission to de-clutter) the other day I took a new look at this salt and pepper mills...

See the cute little head and the hook for a halo?

And of course a couple of "angelic" accessories ;)

So what do YOU think?  Do you see and angel or a bunch of junk tied together with twine...humor me ok?

This isn't the first time I've seen angels is unexpected places...

A couple of little angels that appeared in my junk stash.

You might remember this one from my entry in the Copy Cat Challenge at Funky Junk.

Or this one hiding in my wine box shelves in my guest bathroom.

And last but not least...

The ones I made for gifts one Christmas that fellow JunkMarket style friends dubbed "Hope Springs Eternal" can see that post HERE at Junk Market Style.

Just little reminders around my house of the promise in God's word that says...

For He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
Psalm 91:11-12

Thanks for stopping by...have a great week!

  1. You're entertaining "angels unaware." They are very sweet and cleverly done.

  2. I see angels in your creations just like the angel that created them:) I love how they look:)

  3. My fav is the Hinged Angels on Doorknobs. Very creative. I love the art of repurposing! Thanx for sharing, Tiff

  4. Such wonderful projects. I love that you see angels in everyday pieces. I agree with Tiff's comment, I love the hinged angels on the doorknobs.

  5. Love 'em, Laurel!! I make angels out of all sorts of things too, but I never thought of a pepper mill! Creative!
    Now, I know what to do with all those old wooden hangers I found curb shopping! Take care! Vicki

  6. I love the hinged angels as well. However, it is great how you made angels with other objects. So creative!

  7. Such a heavenly eye for art you have!
    Love the angels. So unique.
    should have known these would be right up Jane's alley! Reminds me of something she might come up with.
    Your angels are dreamy.

  8. I see, I cute Laurel!!!!
