My mother was an avid collector of angels. She gave away most of them when she moved to the apartment, but she did keep some in a small cabinet.
The cabinet is one of 2 pieces of furniture I took home. Ofcause the angels are included, although most of them will be kept in a box in the attic. This is what the cabinet looks like now.
I put a coffee service in it that belonged to my grandmother and the red transferware I collected (so far). On the top shelf there are some personal belongings of my mom and there is some room for a few angels. I wil put them there once my sister has made her choice.
On top of the cabinet is a little angel by Susan Lordi. This is a close up.
It was sent to me (along with a box of See’s Candy) by Ann Marie of An Old Fashion girl when she learned of my mothers passing. Enclosed where 2 beautiful cards. Ann Marie is an angel herself. Unfortunately Ann Marie is going through a difficult time herself, her dad is seriously ill. My thoughts and prayers are with you Ann Marie.
We are almost done going through my mother’s personal things. When we’ve finished the difficult part starts, saying goodbye to the things we are not keeping. I may sound strange, but it is like loosing her again. Only it is in bits and pieces this time.
Have a nice weekend.
