Here's a photo of her when she first came to live in our garden.  I think I found her at Hobby Lobby.

This little angel has been in my garden many years.  She just seems to belong in a cottage style garden.

  4. I love your angel and your garden photographs. She is lucky to be owned by you. Not many people would have the vision to give her a second life. I bet your house is charming!
