Angel Wing Creations

There once was a girl who loved angel wings.  When she saw them, her heart began to flutter.  Angel wing temptations were all over the internet and blogs. 
One day, she was visiting the oh - so - talented,  Dawn @ The Feathered Nest.  As usual, she saw so many inspirational things there. But, that day, she saw angel wings, beautiful - ruffled - angel wings and she fell in love. Could she possibly create ruffled angel wings as pretty as these??  Probably not, but she was determined to give it try.  
So try she did!!! She decided to go large - hoping that size might make up for any ruffling skill shortcomings!
It took that poor girl FOREVER to make these angel wings.  But, not being a quitter, she finally did finish them.  After taking a break, she decided to hang them up and see how she felt about her creation.
She loves angel wings and she loved these.

She hung them over a favorite antique mirror

 She gathered a vintage lace runner 
and added it to the center of the wings

She made a pretty satin rose for the top

She loves angel wings
and she loved these
