angel redo….

I made this Angel Sampler ~ design by Robin of Bird in the Hand Primitives ~ a year or so ago.  I stuffed it, and added two little birds for company, then mounted it on an antique trunk strap and one caster.

This was lots of fun!  But, she seemed rather forlorn, I mean, one little wheel and no place to go.  I decided she needed a facelift. So, I took her and her birds off the wood strap and looked at her for a while.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I wanted her to be a pull toy, so I covered a piece of discarded wood with homespun and sanded it well, added a little distressed tag and rusty bell as the “pull”…..OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Tomorrow, Friday, is the Primitive Handmades Mercantile May update.  I think I’ll add this little angel to my shop. :~>

 

If all facelifts were this painless, I’d have one, too!
