Angels Among Us

I have a thing for angels... well, cherubs if I'm being accurate. I'm sure I inherited the trait from my mother as she loves all things angels as well, and there were always angels placed about our home growing up. And like many women, despite my best efforts, I am becoming my mother. (Love you Mom!)

It all started with this sweet guy. I bought him on a mass accessory shopping trip when we first bought our home. He was just too cute to pass up and he found his home on top of our entertainment center.

This one was soon to follow. He lives on the plant shelf in our kitchen and I love how it seem like he is just laying back, enjoying the chaos below.

When I was decorating my daughters nursery I stole this sweet guy from my Mom's house. I like to think he's a nod to the guardian angels that I'm sure watch over her.

And my latest addition was this adorable one that you saw on top of my new china hutch. I actually saw it several weeks before and couldn't get it out of my head. So when it came time to decorate the top of my hutch, I knew just what I wanted. I love how it looks all snuggled in.

I like using angels through my home for the whimsical yet formal feel they add, but most of all I like the gentle reminder that God and his angels are among us. They share in our troubles and joy, our sorrows and our triumphs.

What are your thoughts on angels in home decor? Love it or loath it? I 'd love to hear your thoughts but will continue to love mine. ;)

P.S. Seeing all these in one post seems like a lot. But I assure you, spread through out my home is not that crazy. Like any decorating theme, to many would be, well, to many!
