Blossoms & Angels

Ha! I wanted to post another update on my lovely amaryllis - the middle bulb has blossomed, yay! - and then I figured that I could play with my blog title a little bit! In order to do that, I had to find an angel...


Big deal, finding an angel in my home... It's much more difficult to single one out! There's an eight-and-a-half-year-old angel sitting on the sofa, his left leg in plaster cast up to his behind, after a skiing accident last week... There's a five-year-old angel practising her ballet steps in the middle of the living room...

There's at least one painting of an angel hanging on the wall of every room in my home (skip the bathroom - for now)... And then, there's a large collection of angel accessories in my jewellery box (I'm just saying this because it sounds lovely; to tell you the truth, my angels don't live in a jewellery box. They live on my clothes, on my desk, on my bedside table, in my bag, on my phone cosy... they're always somewhere near!).


In the end, I decided to post this angel pin. I haven't done a close-up of it yet, and I should've done, because it's gorgeous. It used to be a pendant, obviously, but I stuck it on a kilt pin, added some ribbon and the obligatory tassels and totally loved the result. Excuse the poor quality of the photo, I'm still learning.

There's nothing to add about the 'pin tray' - favourite accessory, favourite book!

  2. The pin is quirky and lovely all at the same time! Which is probably the best combo, in my opinion :))

  3. I love the pin! I hope your little 8 and a half year angel (I have one the same age) is OK - that must have been a bit scary!! :D

  4. Marissa, thank you!

    Aya, I thank you, too!

    Alison, another thank you, and yes, he's fine, considering. He had his first check-up yesterday, the leg is healing (he broke his shinbone), if he continues the same way he'll get a 'plaster cast boot' (knee-high) in a fortnight. He's at home, of course, the school is off for a few weeks, and he's a bit bored - despite having to catch up with school work. It definitely was scary!!!
