Zlatka's Angels

It is officially six weeks to Christmas and I have started my search for this year's angel ornament. So far nothing too impressive out there... although this little morsel is impressive. My church had a ladies' coffee night and the guest speaker spoke about the angels and the shepherds and how it wasn't about the angels - it was about the message! And each lady received this yummy gingerbread angel. So far I've resisted biting her head off - lol.

I have quite a few angel ornaments. I blogged about them here.

And then of course there is the most charming angel that Terri sent me. I blogged about her here. She didn't get packed away - she watches over me everyday... my very own sewing angel.

If I can't find the 'right' angel, I won't add one this year, but that would be sad... so of course the only thing to do is - go shopping...
