Made to hold a wreath she is shown here holding a somewhat tacky wreath made from a wire basket tray type thingy. The silver ribbon was way too long, but when first arranged looked very nice. Not so much now after being moved and inspected by family.
Not as big of a girl as the 9 ft. Junk Angel Midge posted a few  weeks ago, but she can hold her own. Shes a little more than 3 foot  tall.
Her elegant footing is an old lamp base. Lucky for me it fit perfectly into the porch post. The porch post was purchased at the Historical Society Flea Market sale that I wait for each year. It is by far the hardest wood I have ever tried to drill into...resorted to gluing most of the parts together. The post was created in sections too.
Full view with out stretched wings and a strong determined stand.
Every girl needs a little glitz...necklace was created by a former student and adorned another project until I snatched it.

Created with a halo from a horse's tack, and wire wings from a mystery piece, this Joyful Junk Angel is holding a wreath during this Christmas season. I made her for my resale booth...my junk angels are flying out of there...but I think she will stay around our house for awhile. She's a bit of plus size girl so she fits in really well here. All of the wood used is very hard, so I guess you could say she's really hard headed too...even more reason for her to stay with the determined lot in my home.
