A Chorus of Angels for Simply Neutrals Tuesday No. 10

Already the shops and big stores are filling with their
Christmas paraphernalia (I mean gifts!)
but some of us like to create our own
homegrown and more natural gifts.
To this end I am sharing a Chorus of Art Angels
recently completed as well as
a heart.


These art angels have been dressed in many layers


of both new and recycled laces and fabrics including chiffon


 which drapes so beautifully when handing.


Some have pockets created from doily pieces and glittery fabric.


This one has some of my dyed doilies in shades of soft blues


and shades of grey

and her pocket is part of a cut lace embroidered doily so 
beautifully edged with some lace
with added pearl buttons. 


This heart has been created with scripted fabric
and the added vintage laces with a
little pocket 


holding a tag of a beautiful stamped image 


of the Madonna - such a beautiful idea for
decorating your Christmas tree or hanging from your mantle. 


 The Angels are now on their way to their new homes
but this heart along with some other Christmas
angel cards are still available in
my Etsy shop
like these ones


I'm linking these angels and the heart to
Wen's Simply Neutrals Tuesday
over on her blog at www.appleapricot.blogspot.com

So if you love all things neutral i.e. whites, greys, creams etc.
why don't you join me there!

Many thanks for your continued visits and lovely comments

Love and hugs, Suzy

    What a gorgeous chorus of angels! Each one is magnificent, and what a marvellous Christmas decoration they are! You constantly amaze me with the amount of lovely creations you manage! It takes me so long, fiddling and auditioning, and the time just goes!

    I'm not surprised the angels are sold already...

  23. Dear Suzy, your angels are stunningly beautiful! Such ethereal serene Christmas decorations they make. And the heart is so gorgeous too. Everything with the most beautiful laces. I'm sorry to be late in visiting you sweetie, life got in the way. Sending you big hugs, xx

  24. Today the Christmas music started on the radio. Hard to imagine that the season is here when it's still relatively warm outside. I noticed the store windows downtown are starting to decorate too. Lucky are the people who scooped up one of your lovely angels!


Thank you so very much for stopping here to say hello and to see what I have been creating. I really treasure each and everyone of you for your comments. It is so appreciated....Suzy
