I must have been dreaming in pink.......

If you were to imagine an angel, would her wings be....... pink? I decided to make some sweet pink wings out of dyed filters. Turned out not too bad, what do you think? It actually worked fairly quickly and with the help of my SIL it did not take more than a couple hours!
The canvas is quite large, the wings are life size. I love how the soft shade of pink makes them look like sweet cream icing!
Here's a few gifts I received from my birthday, love the pink bunnies!
My niece gave me this adorable angel, she is a lot like the one I made at Christmas, I love angels........
I painted some books to match the wings....
My SIL gave me the little Eiffel tower, so cute......


Something sweet to read, full of the most beautiful photos...... you can get a copy from here or here, both are wonderful places to visit and shop......
New lace, packaged so pretty, some wonderful goodies from here, thank you Kelli!

Hi Margaret:
I love all your vintage and pink goodness. Everything is so pretty!

Oh, and I have to tell you...I purchased one of little polar bear kids (Maritimus) from GalliBears. I can't wait to try my hand at making my own. Steve's favorite animal is a polar bear, so I thought it would be appropriate.

Not as wonderful as yours are, I'm sure, but it might be fun.

The wings are so lovely. And yes, I believe that angels have pink wings, how could they not!

I could just see these hanging in a nursery or in a bedroom over the bed. So dreamy and sweet.

Love all your pretties.

thank you.
I have signed to follow your lovely blog and will be back often.

Beautiful post...all pink and vintage and delicious.

Have you seen when they burn chiffon to make it all airy and curled?

If you haven't it looks like a technique you would enjoy.

Charlene said...

The angel wings turned out to be amazing! And to think... coffee filters?????????????? All your BDay treasures made for a great post. Of course everyone loves you & you should have been showered with goodies. Have a great week. Are you seeing signs of spring or still in the deep freeze? Stay warm. HUGS! Charlene
