For this angel I used old ceiling tin trim for the wings and one of my spoon flowers for her to hold.
This one I used 2 pieces of an old frame for the wings and faucet handles for the flower bouquet.

One of my customers wanted me to make them an angel to sit on her front porch.  Her only request was that it was large enough to be seen from the road.  I went into my storage room and just looked around til I found items that would work.  The faces are enamel pot lids.  The fence pickets were perfect for the body.  And of course, they needed some feathers on their wings so I added the forks.  I made the 2 and let her pick.  I think she was shocked at just how large I had made them!  She liked the frame wings cause there was a little more color.

I worked extra time in December to cover for our secretary and now it's tax season (Yes, I work for an accountant!) I sneak on when I can to see what all of you are up to. Sorry I haven't posted any comments, but please know that I LOVE all of your ideas and super junkiness!

LuAnn- I'm SICK of snow!!! But it sounds like you got even more than we did. Thank goodness hubby's workshop is heated!
Not that I've been out there much.

Midge- These were so fun to make, I'm sure you could put your own twist on them to make them even better. I sell angels year round and really don't change them for the seasons. The potato masher angels sold as soon as I took them to the store. After all, angels are always around us!

Keep up the good work everyone!!!!!!!!

THERE you are! And you brought the angels with you! Oh, my gosh. I love these SO much I can hardly stand it! I want to try some too, if you don't mind. Question: I realize this was a special order, but are your angels more popular at Christmas, or do you find you can sell them anytime of year? Do you make them more gardeny for year around? I'm sorry I'm rambling. You got my head spinning.
