Ohhhhh I need your help.  I love when the UPS man comes to the door.  That can be the highlight of my day sometimes!!!! Today he came with this large box and when I opened it OMG!!! inside was the most beautiful angel.  My hubby got me this angel as an early Christmas Gift from a beautiful artist Cathy at www.cheswickcompany.com.  I saw Cathy's angel she did for Paula a friend of Laura's at http://52flea.blogspot.com/2010/12/enchanting-winter-nest.html  and I just fell deeply in love with hers.  Her angel is on top of an old vintage birdhouse and is so beautiful.  Something about this little beauty grabbed a hold of me. Cathy custom makes these so they are unique and one of a kind.   Cathy personalized my angel with a heart in her hands since this was a gift from the heart of my hubby.  Now I need your input to let me know if she should hang or sit!!!! She does both.  I took some pictures of her sitting on my new theater seats in the entry way and also I hung her on the old chippy door in my family room over my sectional.  I am kind of leaning one way but I wanted to get some input from you guys on what you think.


Look at all the beautiful detail Cathy does.  I love her feathered wings and this real old vintage christening gown she used for her dress.  Love it all.  I love her vintage look.  I love the little pearl buttons on the heart and the beautiful embroidered stars.


Look at the old vintage rusty wire halo.  Love it and her face is so sweet all hand done by Cathy.

Here she is hanging on the old chippy barn door I have on my family room wall over my sectional.  She kind of goes with that old vintage door!! What do you think????

This is truly such a sweet gift from my husband and beautiful work of art from Cathy.  If you go to her site you can see some of the beautiful work she does.  Thank you Cathy for this beautiful angel.  I will cherish her for years to come.
I did a few changes to some of my Christmas decor to share with you.  I also found these amazing luminara candles that look just like a real flame.  Love them.  Enjoy.




I put a tree in one of my old vintage watering cans from the garden.  I love taking something so ordinary and making it into a unique tree stand for this pencil Christmas tree.  The chippy little garden bench is from my garden too.  A few white ornaments that have a garden theme and this made a cute garden Christmas tree for my entry way.


Took this believe sign and added some greenery with little white lights and it really makes this old chippy window look pretty for Christmas on my buffet.

These are those candles I mentioned.  I found them at Brookstones.  They smell wonderful and they flicker like a real candle.  The picture does not do these little beauties justice but trust me these are better than the real thing.

The actually flicker just like a real candle.  So pretty.


Just love how they give off a vanilla christmas cookie scent and they flicker like a real candle.  So ingenious these new "pretend" candles.
