Ohhhhh I need your help.  I love when the UPS man comes to the door.  That can be the highlight of my day sometimes!!!! Today he came with this large box and when I opened it OMG!!! inside was the most beautiful angel.  My hubby got me this angel as an early Christmas Gift from a beautiful artist Cathy at www.cheswickcompany.com.  I saw Cathy's angel she did for Paula a friend of Laura's at http://52flea.blogspot.com/2010/12/enchanting-winter-nest.html  and I just fell deeply in love with hers.  Her angel is on top of an old vintage birdhouse and is so beautiful.  Something about this little beauty grabbed a hold of me. Cathy custom makes these so they are unique and one of a kind.   Cathy personalized my angel with a heart in her hands since this was a gift from the heart of my hubby.  Now I need your input to let me know if she should hang or sit!!!! She does both.  I took some pictures of her sitting on my new theater seats in the entry way and also I hung her on the old chippy door in my family room over my sectional.  I am kind of leaning one way but I wanted to get some input from you guys on what you think.


Look at all the beautiful detail Cathy does.  I love her feathered wings and this real old vintage christening gown she used for her dress.  Love it all.  I love her vintage look.  I love the little pearl buttons on the heart and the beautiful embroidered stars.


Look at the old vintage rusty wire halo.  Love it and her face is so sweet all hand done by Cathy.

Here she is hanging on the old chippy barn door I have on my family room wall over my sectional.  She kind of goes with that old vintage door!! What do you think????

This is truly such a sweet gift from my husband and beautiful work of art from Cathy.  If you go to her site you can see some of the beautiful work she does.  Thank you Cathy for this beautiful angel.  I will cherish her for years to come.

  1. Not to confuse you more...she actually looks great both places! Your angel hanging on the door gives her a sense of flight...watching over your home....but I think she looks adorable sitting on your bleacher chair! I know...you need to order another one!! I'm going to go with her sitting because that's UNIQUE! Roxie

    1. Hi Roxie,
      I know she looks good both places but I think I am leaning towards the door. She really looks vintage on that door and she is overlooking the family room. I have never felt so drawn to an angel before so I want her to be in a special place. Thanks for your help.

  2. Wow, she is stunning! And what a sweet hubby! I have to agree with Roxie-I can't decide which place I like her better! You win no matter what, because she looks great both places :)

    1. Susan,
      I think she may have to be several places. Maybe sometime on the door and then back on the theater seats too. She may end up being in more than one place!!!!
      I really love this angel. This was a heart warming gift for me. I love angels and she is just beautiful.

  5. I can see why you are in a quandary over her location. She is appealing in both places, however my first inkling when I saw her on the theater seats was a picture in my mind of your dear husband giving you a gift (his heart).

    Thanks for sharing.

  9. I discovered your blog thought the featuring of no minimalist and as soon I put your blog in my blog roll I visit it with Oh and Ah to your first post. Your really gifted, and don't need a new camera to do better. It's not only the camera who does great it's the look and you have that kind of look. I hope I'm clear, because my English is a little far away (I'm French and living in Paris).
    You little angel is so cute either up or sitting.

  10. That angel is amazing. So sweet of your husband. First of all, I love it on the chairs. But then I also love it on the door. I would put her where she is the safest. At my house it would be on the door because of the dogs and little children. Sitting on the chair would really be a welcoming entry into your sweet home.

  11. Decisions, decisions! You have a very sweet hubby. I like her sitting because it brings her to "life." But I like her hanging because she appears to be watching over you. Sorry, I'm absolutely no help. ;)

    1. Ha Ha Susan. I know this is a hard one. I think she will be a traveling angel and move around my house!!!!! How about after the holiday next week maybe we can sneak a day in for lunch and you can help me with my blog issues. I think you know more than I do and can maybe help me out. I will treat you to lunch. Let me know how your schedule is in the next few weeks and maybe we can get together.

  14. I am usually not a fan of angels, but I do like this one very much. It is so unique. I love her in both locations. When she sits on the bench she looks like a girl waiting for her prom date. There is only one solution: You need to get another one!

  18. I vote for the door. She has such a sweet, but wistful face.

  19. I think she is absolutely gorgeous either place.
    It is not permanent, so hang her for awhile, then let her sit when she is tired of hanging around. =)
