Angels at Christmastime

I always love angels, but especially at Christmastime.

This is the time that my collection of old angels comes down from the attic. Most often they were "Made in Japan" in the 50s or 60s. These NOEL angels are also bells ~ well that is except the "N" angel. I think that somewhere along the line the girl "N" suffered a mishap and Mr. "N" being the gentlemen he is stepped in to fill her role because N-O-E-L has more meaning at Christmas than O - E - L.

She looks happy with her BIG candy cane waving a friendly hello.

And this little dear is having a thoughtful conversation with Santa .

Oh . . . look who Santa found hiding under his cap.

This one is called a "Candle Climber" for obvious reasons.

It was a happy day at the thrift shop when I found this church and 2 angels.

~Glory to the newborn king ~

Amen to that sentiment.

Our gifts are wrapped ~ now who should we give them to?

My most precious Christmas angel.
This one belonged to my parents and is a true reminder of the reason we celebrate this glorious season.


  1. Such a wonderful angel collection you have. It was so nice to see them all.
    I believe there are angels walking among us all year long! :-)

  2. I absolutely love your angel collection. They are so precious. Since you shared them with us before, I started looking for them and they are not easy to find. I do hope angels are watching over you and your family this Christmas season and always. Twyla

  3. HI Kim,

    and I finally found the stove ( Hallmark cookie stove ), omg, I was so happy, but damn, lol, that thing was a fortune!! But I had to have it :)! I guess I did ok price wise because I got it on Ebay, but it was hard to find under $100. Crazy huh? But still, lol, I treated myself :) Thanks for the inspiration!!

  7. Hi Kim,
    I think your angel collection is wonderful. You have quite a few. Their little expressions are so sweet, angleic I should say.

    If you can't find anyone to give those presents to???? Just kidding or Ho, Ho, Ho.

  8. This is a wonderful angle collection. I must take out my vintage ones for this year's displays.

  9. Kim ~ you have such a lovely collection of all things Christmas! How cheery your home must be during the holidays ~ Just love it!

  10. I love all the angels, they're beautiful. My tree has several angel ornaments, the most of which have been handmade by my mother.

    Your decorations are wonderful.

    Enjoy Christmas, have a blessed, thankful, peaceful Christmas.
