Vintage Angel

Amidst the hustle and bustle of welcoming everyone into the kitchen on Thanksgiving, my sister came in and handed me a gift bag. A Thanksgiving present? When I got a chance to peek inside my jaw just dropped.


Inside was a display box containing a little vintage Christmas Tree Angel. It was exactly like the one we had grown up with in the 70’s. For a moment I was stunned that she somehow got this from my Mom’s house….. but soon realized it was in much better condition than Mom’s had been when I last saw it over 20 years ago.  My sister said it was a thrift store find. What a treasure!

I love it!

Here are more detailed pictures-
