Here they are all lined up. JennyKs are the first two on
the left and Georgias
are the three on the right
Heres a back shot of all of them lined up.
 
Geos first one.  Please note her beautiful halo and key. Her body is made from a old heat element, her head an old wooden bead and her wings are an old hinge.
Geos second one. I love the tilt to her head and the sassy bussle with jewels on the back... Another heat element, crown bolts, hinges and beads.
Heres a close up of that bussle.
Geos third one. LOVE the jeweled collar made with a Tinkertoy and beads! Also included is an old hinge, wood bead, bolt with blue paint and some other hardware.
My first one. Jello mold stand, finial body, and some great wood flourishes from a sewing cabinet Geo took apart that I used as wings.
My second one using another finial, Jello mold stand, some hardware for wings and a costume jewelry ring adorns her neck.

Holiday Junk Angels by Georgia Moon & JennyK

 

We did it! Georgia and I had our first arting day in my garage (AKA lab) today. Georgia picked the theme: Angels and brought along two boxes of amazing bits and pieces which we combined with my stuff and HAD A BALL!

In addition to making the angels, Sophie kept us entertained by trying to hunt down the mouse that jumped out of one of the file drawers as I was pulling it open. I about jumped in Georgia’s lap, scaring her silly and haven’t laughed that hard in way too long…

 

Hey, also a shout -out to junkermidge's post about hardware angels. That gal taught us the way to use the hinges as wings. Take a look at her post:

Thanks for sharing!

It sounds like you guys really know how to throw a Christmas party, complete with stirring creatures. What a blast! Your angels are great, too. Very creative and unique.

writes: You gals are so wonderful! Thanks for letting us share our fun day with you. We had such a good time and Geo is SO easy and fun to play with. We're doing it again next Tuesday, so stand by for postings from that day. The theme is still TBD... Any ideas??

PS - We went to Home Depot and spent some quality time in the catch-the-mouse department... traps are now set and hopefully functional. I don't think Geo can take another Jenny-in-her-lap -leap next week ;-)

Enjoy the season!

I made some ornaments out of junk. It's always so much fun being creative with like minded people. Thanks for sharing!! Posted: 12:12 pm on December 17th
shabbychick writes: Sounds like the perfect fun-filled junk day!! (minus the mouse of course - but look how that "little" event added to the memory - "priceless" - LOL).

Your angels are precious and so creative - going to have to dig through my junk now too...

Geo - the "almost wet your pants" laughs are the very best - don't ya think?? :)

Merry Christmas you two!!!

Cheers

georgiamoon writes: Now for my version of events...I had the BEST time EVER. I went to Jenny's "lab" at about 10:30am and didn't leave until 4 pm. The time just flew by and I think we did a fine job on our regal angles. What a blast to hang out and try out all of the goodies we had available . Jenny has so much stuff and all the tools organized in a way that would never happen at my place. It was a pleasure to spend that much time with her, she is very inspiring, and talented too. When she says that she jumped in my lap when the mouse JUMPED out of the file cabinet, she is NOT kidding! And I was standing up which meant that she practically flew into my arms, after the screaming died down I almost wet my pants we were laughing so hard. I'm not sure how we got anything done with all the cracking up that went on all day, but we did manage to put together these lovely angles and I will cherish them forever. Thanks Jenny for everything I had such a FUN day...Did I mention that we had food too?Yummy! Posted: 8:02 pm on December 16th
