Witches and Angels Oh My!

Hello Sweet Friends.

I know a lot of you use your blogs to make money.  I give all of you so much credit to keep up with the ever changing rules and hard work that goes into all of that.

I do not want my blog to be a place that I advertise.  I like it for showing my decor crazy and connecting with so many of you. 

That is just my preference for blogging.

I have been thinking about some things regarding my blog for awhile. 

As most of you know that follow my blog,  I recently put up some chair covers for sale to help benefit the Rescue where we adopted Cooper.  Our sweet basset Cooper is now over the rainbow bridge.  I was able with all of your generous hearts to raise quite a bit for this rescue which they are so grateful.

That brings me to the blog post for today.

I have a southern angel friend that has been in my life for only a short while but has blessed my life in many ways.

  We connected through my blog and are becoming great friends. 

We share our lives and hearts through emailing each other. 

My sweet southern angel friend can sew!!! She sews the sweetest angels.  After she saw my sale for the Rescue she generously offered one of her angel dolls for me to sell on my blog to help a cause.

Recently, Susan from Must Love Junk along with her mom are helping battered women through their Home Sweet Hope Mission.  

They help women and children fleeing abusive homes into safe housing.   They go in and with generous donations can set up beautiful and cozy housing for these families in crisis.

If you want to go here you can read about the work they are doing.

I have been helping them when I can.  I feel I have been blessed with a good life.  
Not a rich life by any means but a comfortable life.  
So I want to give back.  My blog on occasion will have posts for good causes.

No worries,  I am keeping my blog about white, chippy, neutral home decor and the changes I make in my own small cottage home.

I just want on occasion to do up something to help others.  When I post if you can help great.  Please because we have all become good friends, Never feel obligated.  

Everyone has their own life struggles and I totally get that.  Sometimes just offering up a prayer or good thoughts for people in need is good too.

My southern angel friend also gifted me with a sweet witch angel.  

 Since I was gifted this sweet witch, I thought I might try to mix a little halloween in with my white and neutral fall decor.

Here she is.   Cil my southern angel knows how I love gray, whites and neutrals.  She made this sweet witch angel in light gray and white polka dots with some black and white trims.

I love her sweet face, her big eyes and her oh so fun red curly witchy locks.

Look at the detail to her sweet little white pumpkin she holds.  Crochet green trim.  The trim on her dress is intertwined with black ribbon and white crochet trim.  The detail Cil does on her angels is incredible.

Now I want to show you the pictures of the  Angels I will be having up for sale here on my blog.  

I hope by selling these we can give money to Susan's Home Sweet Hope Cause.  I am adding a sweet Wren Harvest Angel I have in my collection and also one of my first angels Grace.

This is my Grace angel below.  I purchased her from Cathy at Cheswick Company.  I fell in love with Cathy's angels years ago when I got 
Grace from her.

This is my grace angel all decked out at Christmas time.  

I am donating her for this great cause.  I love her and have had her in my home for a few years.  I just feel this cause is so important that I will adopt her out too.

She is up for sale for $100.  I paid twice that for her originally.  She is vintage and sweet.  

If you can give her a good home I am willing to part with her for this special cause too.

Grace is handmade and dressed in a vintage gown.  All hand made bloomers from vintage lace and fabrics and old crochet doilies in her cape.

Grace will come with this blessed pillow and her pretty blessed necklace and heart too.
So if you are interested in Grace you will see the email at the end of this post to contact me.

Cil is having renovations done on her home for the next few weeks so her site is down for now.  In a few weeks if you are interested in her angels you can go on Ebay and look for the seller
angelsgatherhere or contact me and I can help you get in contact with her.  Cil is making the larger Grace angels to sell on her Ebay site.

This is Cil's sweet Wren Angel she has offered up for the fund raiser.
  Cil's Wren is just adorable.  More adorable than pictures show.  Believe me she is so sweet and cute and the details are amazing.  If you would like to purchase this sweet girl you can contact me at my email
The cost of each  Wren doll is $75.  They are all handmade and unique.

Wren is holding the cutest little white pumpkin and cream flowers.

This is my Wren doll from my collection that I am donating up to sell for the cause.
This angel was made by the artist Cathy from Cheswick Company and I paid  $178 for her and will sell her for $75 to raise money.
She will come with a sweet little velvet pumpkin and her purple flowers too as seen in the picture above.

So here are the sweet Angels all together. If you would like to purchase one of them or the larger Grace from my collection you can contact me at kmvavra@comcast.net
These sweet vintage angels would be a great gift for yourself or someone special in your life.

Remember this goes to help women and children escaping abuse and heartache.  Raising money will help Susan and her mom make a new beginnings home comfy and cozy.  We want to show these women there is hope for them.

If you cannot purchase one of these sweet angels to help the cause please offer up a prayer or good wishes and outcomes for these families in need.

Have a great week.  I will be back with some decor updates.  The Murphy Bed is almost complete.  My living room and kitchen are getting put back together with the new changes.
Hope to have those posts soon.

Thank you again for all of you sweet bloggers and friends out there that support my blog and share your friendship.
