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.
And this little dear is having a thoughtful conversation with Santa .
Oh . . . look who Santa found hiding under his cap.
It was a happy day at the thrift shop when I found this church and 2 angels.
