...a pair of wings

...hello my dears!

i hope this post finds you all joyful
and dreaming of
the happiest holiday's ever!

i have been like a ping pong ball this week ~
all over the place

in my studio creating a few pretties...
packing up boxes for our impending move??
strategically planning the next few months
you know...just living life!

one of the things on my ~
"if i do nothing else, i just have to do this list"
 this year,
were ethereal angel wings...

i have literally been trying to get to these for years
ever since i first laid eyes on them in my first jeanne d'arc christmas book
i have desired a vintage pair
but they are few and far between

so to create a few pairs this year,
has been my top priority!

i set out to make 8 pairs...
out of which
2 have already been spoken for

this pair however,
 is the next pair that is will be available
 in my etsy shop

i will list each one as i finish them.
hopefully finishing all remaining pairs
no two will be alike but they will all be beautiful...

when i started,
i envisioned how the french nun's
would have perhaps designed them for the Christmas pageants every year

and wondered if they were giddy with excitement
to create such things as a pair of angel wings!

gathering precious bits of beautiful lace and gossamer gauze...

bending and twisting the wire into wing shapes
and then, very lovingly,
hand sewing all these beautiful materials into
 a pair of wings

i pondered if they quietly sang hymns of holiness,
infusing more into these wings than just what meets the eye... 

perhaps ~
a sprinkle of enlightenment and joy went into them too?!

i know that i have enjoyed making them,
taking my time as i too,
lovingly stitch on the most beautiful lace bits i could get my hands on,
smiling to myself, as i whispered the words of  "silent night, holy night"

more than that,
 they have somehow inspired me to keep my heart real this season
and to float above all the entrapment's of the "holiday's"
and all the hustle and bustle...

don't get me wrong
i know i will still be hustlin' and bustlin'
my Christmas wish came early this year
for my heart is already filled with such joy and peace!

i guess you could say
that i have been touched by an angel!

i wonder if one of these pairs of wings will fit me??!


i think our church's "Christmas pageants angel" position
has already been filled!!

no worries though,
if you hear any carolers outside your window this year
i'll be the one with a pair of wings on :)

  16. Rosemary, this is such a lovely post! I am very inspired by it. I have a couple of creative items on my To-Do WIsh List that I want to accomplish for 2012.

    I am so happy you are experiencing peace and joy during this holiday season. I need to let go of the unnecessary stuff (and worry and stress) and celebrate!

    Thanks again for the lovely post and sharing your amazing wings with us.

    PS I have heard so much about Jeanne D'Arc magazine, but I can't find it around here.

  17. These are the most beautiful wings I have ever seen Rosemary!! You really should have a huge store close to me so I could visit and shop there!!!

    Love Susan
