An old canning jar I crackle painted.  Put a light inside and she glows!

Clair, my sister gave me a bag full of these old metal bows she picked up for pennies at a sale. There were all sizes and begged to become angel wings. I sell my items at a store in Blissfield, MI called Patina. (Lots of antique stores!) Great place for anyone to check out if in the area. Cynthia, I'm not really sure what the wings on the canning jar angel were really for but I think they used them in floral arrangements. They are large foil covered cardboard leaves that had wire attached. Once again, begged to be wings.

These are all beautiful, but I do have my favorite. The rusty skate is unbelievable! Thanks so much for posting these inspiring works of art.

Be well,

Kathy- I've never run across any ballerina slippers at sales. I'd love to make more so I'm really going to be on the lookout now. Thanks for the compliments!

I was at an estate sale a couple weeks ago, and the daughters (over the years) must have been ballerinas - I've never seen so many slippers - there must have been at least 100 pairs...that would have made a whole lotta angels!! :)

Thanks for sharing.
