December 10, 2010


The Jean D'Arc Magazine has become my all time favorite magazine EVER!!!!!
Something I have noticed in it are people using angel wings in their decorating so I was thrilled to find a pair of UGLY gold ones at the thrift store......a little bit of glitter and ribbon transformed my angel wings in to exactly what I envisioned.

PS  Thank you to Carole of Maynard Greenhouse for always being so willing to mail me the Jean D'Arc Magazine as it is NOT available in Canada.

Happy thrifting and happy day!

FABULOUS!!! JDL is my favorite new magazine too! I feel like it just 'speaks' to me when it comes to decorating. It has made me want to simplify everything and live in peaceful, beautiful surrondings. Your wings are gorgeous! Theresa xoxo

janis girl you are the best.

Thank you for your beautiful visit to me Joyeux Noel! Leaving the comment was the best part.

About your wings, you are so right everyone is using wings even big ones hanging from the back of sitting chairs.

What a vision you had with your treasured find. The ugly Angel wings have there glory back.

Keep inspiring us girl

Holiday joy!

I just posted about the exact same thing! That magazine inspired me to make some angel wings as well. Isn't that just the most beautiful magazine on the market? Marcia
