Paper Angels

Hi you all!
Today is Paper Saturday, so I am linking up with some matchbox angel-doll decorations that I made. They can also be used as gift-boxes for small presents or vouchers.
I used the same pattern that I used for my tag on Tuesday. This time I used a vintage angel scrap for the head, and different trimmings for their skirts. The gold decorations have been made with liquid pearls. I fixed a ribbon-loop onto the back of each one so that they can be hung on a Xmas tree. I gave the dolls unmoveable joints, but they can also be jointed with small brads to make them moveable.





When I went for my walk yesterday I decided to walk in the other direction along the Rhine, a very quiet and peaceful stretch, which I enjoyed, although it was very cold and windy, even the horses were wearing their winter coats!


This little house is almost hidden in the trees:


An old pump house from the 18th century.

The next little town in sight:

An old mile stone, showing the distances in kilometers to the Dutch border, to Basel and to Rotterdam:



The sun tried to break through the clouds:



Have a good weekend, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!

  2. What fun angel ornaments, they would look good on a tree.
    That was a very interesting walk, I liked the mile (kilometre) stone. I've just looked up the German word and it looks like it's milestone in German too.

  3. Yes, a 'Meilenstein' is used to denote a milestone, a big or special event. The term miles disappeared when Napoleon introduced the metric measures in the 18th century. But it is a lovely example, there are very few of them left.

  18. Lovely little angel tree decorations/gifts, and very classy with their white gloves. I can imagine a silver tree covered with lots of the angels and it would look beautiful. Your photographs are beautiful, and I too like the milestone photos. Are you a professional photographer? I always feel I can see your photos hanging in a gallery exhibition they are so beautiful.

    1. Thanks Jess, I don't have a tree, but will spray some branches silver. I just take photos for fun with a tiny Samsung camera, but it gives good results.

  19. Good Afternoon Valerie. I just love those pretty angels and I can see them now hanging on the tree. Another day of wonderful pictures, you know how much I love them. We enjoyed your lovely Vegetable Casserole last night and with warm crusty bread was just what was need on such a cold day. This is a definite favourite. Hugs from Scotland. Rita xxxx

  28. The angels would look beautiful on a tree. From you photos I see there are still a lot of colorful leaves on the trees--since ours are all gone, I really enjoyed seeing more Autumn.
