Yes, I know...these are a little bit out there :)
Salt and pepper mill, a vinatge wooden hanger and some twine.
See the cute little head and hook for the halo?
And of course a couple of angelic accessories ;)
So what do YOU think?  Do you see and angel or a bunch of junk tied together with twine...humor me ok?

This isnt the first time Ive seen angels in unexpected places...
A couple of little angels that appeared in my junk stash.
This one adds a playful twist to my family room.
Or this one hiding in my wine box shelves in my guest bathroom.

Yes, I know...these are a little bit "out there" :)

For a while now I had been thinking these old wood hangers would make perfect angel wings...I just hadn't found the right "body" yet.  Then, as I was sorting (on my never-ending mission to de-clutter) the other day I took a new look at these salt and pepper mills...

Adorable idea! I too have wooden hangers, I wouldn't have thought of them as angels wings but now it make so much sense! I'd would love to make some of your angels! Posted: 8:43 pm on April 5th
chippingcharm writes: Thanks everyone...always fun to hear what everyone thinks! Jim, I'm glad they "sent you back" we would have missed you here ;) Vicki, I've got one of those "agree-able" hubby's too. He's just happy I'm making stuff with things I get cheap...or free :) Thanks all, Laurel Posted: 1:41 pm on April 5th

Found about 30 wooden hangers curb shopping the other day, and told my husband I had found some angels wings...he just always agrees. Your hinge angels just make me happy! Posted: 7:07 pm on April 4th
