Show & Tell: Angels among us...

In December, I shared with you my collection of angels.
Thanks to hubby finding the lost box of Christmas stuff, I can share those that weren't featured in December.
(the arrangement on top of the empty fish tank:)

Angel Moroni was located an put right on the tree:

Found the stained glass angel (from my Aunt R):

Found the cool old (ebay) angel with wand, behind her (left) is an angel that reminds me of my daughter, Misty (we looked high and low at tons of Dollar Stores to find one with 'darker than blonde hair and pink dress), and it's 'sister' (right), the first angel we bought as a tree topper 20 years ago, that reminds me of my step-daughter, Tiffany):

My new (ebay) 2008 angel playing the flute:

And 2008 Christmas clearance purchase:
Little darlings that look like my grandkiddos-
Blond for Audrey, Brunette for LauraJune, Elf boy (will have wings added) for David:

Christmas eve, 2008, I was surprised to find this in the mailbox!! My prize from Angie's (at The American Homemaker) give away!! What does this have to do with angels???

She included this darling little angel boy!!! (I actually squealed when I saw it-got quite a laugh out of hubby and the usual weird look from Tay) Thank you so much Angie!

There they are in all their glory!!!

How wonderful it was to turn down the lights, and just have the Christmas tree and this glowing! I so loved this arrangement!
Right now, everything is all packed away waiting for this next December.
Happy Show and Tell Friday!!!

You mean this December. : )
To think I'm still finding things to pack away myself.
These are all precious and it's nice that many came from a different person or place.

How clever to have this all atop a fishtank. That is so cool. And very, very festive.

What a lovely and diverse collection you have! About the fish tank, how come it's empty? Did all your fish die? Or did you just tire of it? I'm getting ready to set up a big one, hope I don't get sick of it!
