Rusty Angel Wings & Give-Away

RUSTY ANGEL WINGS

...... display for the season on your tree and all year round for a soft romantic ethereal touch and a reminder of his spirit

the soft white downy under feathers, yearly gifts from my chic chicks and the backside, a vintage baling wire rusty angelic form, a gift from Father time

Our sweet girls make my breakfast, give me fabulous huge yellow yolked eggs for baking and beautiful white downy soft feathers to use in my creations.  But they can be stingy with their coats, (winter's coming....can you blame them? :) so there are only four of these gorgeous creations available on the website

angel wings created from the give-aways of Belle, Snow, Punkin and Pepper....my photo shy chicks
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And speaking of beautiful, fabulous and give-aways, I am having a GIVE-AWAY to celebrate the giving in Thanks. 
 Belle Inspiration magazine, based in Paris,France, is one exquisite presentation and has that certain "something", that undefinable uniqueness, also known in that romantic French language as je ne sais quoi. This beautiful magazine celebrates la joie de vivre or the joy of life and is the twinkle of Mimi Bleu's eye, the editor-in-chief.  

I was so extremely honored and grateful to have a conversation with Mimi and to be featured in the latest issue, the 2 year anniversary issue.  I was overwhelmed when I saw the spread she did.  Thank you Mimi!  I would love to give one of my readers a year's subscription to this gorgeous read and a rendez-vous with good taste and style.  You can see a mini-mag presentation HERE.  Give-away starts now and ends November 30th at mid-night, winner to be announced shortly there-after.  Worldwide entries accepted. 
 Oh...is there a trip to France in your future?  Mimi and company also does custom private tours. :)  Nothing here to buy for this give-away...   :)  .....   Just leave a comment on any post between now and the closing date, become a follower if you're not already, and I would love to have you click that "like" button for face book.  Non-bloggers are so welcome to join in......just please be sure there is an email contact for you. :)

Isn't she sweet?.....all beautifully worn and weathered in her raggedy pink tulle and satin.  Pink perfection with the patina of time.  Available on my website and one of the photos Mimi featured in the  Belle Inspiration article about moi and the one below also .....a little vignette in my home featuring an antique children's life size carousel ride. 


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And continuing with the Thirty Days of Thanksgiving pledge for November:
Nov. 7th - I was grateful to run into an old friend.  We talked a mile a minute!
Nov. 8th - I was grateful to see Pepper is okay
Nov. 9th - I was grateful to have the roses still blooming
Nov. 10th - I was grateful to find something in the Christmas shed that hadn't seen the light of day for 20 yrs...in the first bin I looked in....yay!  An old/new tradition is to be reborn this year
Nov. 11th - I am so grateful for all the veterans, my sweet departed Daddy, who was a veteran, and to all those serving now to keep me safe
Today Nov. 12th - I am grateful to have this gorgeous 70° weather today.....I can work outside and a little chipmunk with his cheeks full of winter food just ran by
xoxxoxo
I will be heading out of town this week.... stay sweet and I'll see you next week

These wings are way too pretty-I love them. I especially love the fact that you had help making them from your pretty little chicks!

The wings are beautiful, Lynne! I'm sure they are a labor of love since they are from your own feathered friends!

We had a great weekend in the 60's...well a little rain never hurt anyone, and now it's down to 30! I'd love to be in your neck of the woods.

Wonderful giveaway...I follow Mimi's blog and she is just so sweet!

Have a great week!

XO,
Jane

Oooooooohhhhhhh! Pretty! I love feathers! Do you remember when Victoria's Secret had their big ad push with the angel wings? While my husband was "admiring" the models, I was going ga-ga over the wings they had strapped on. Very cool! You did a great job, thanks to "your girls."

Jen said...
