Bigger Than Life


This star is 2cm wide and high. The angel holding it is only 4 inches tall. The camera was on automatic, with a macro at night. Sometimes I'm so pleasantly surprised by how something develops!

Not Quite Angelic


These German angels have been sitting on my parents' windowsill since I was a baby. We got them when we lived in Germany, and when we went back recently we found out they still make them. They are exactly the same! Except A LOT more expensive! :)

What I used to think was hilarious (and still do if I'm honest) is that these angelic symphonic members have no pants. NO PANTS! Not even underwear. So if you turn them around.... that's right. Butt cracks.

Who decided this was the proper way to make angels, I'm just wondering.
