Angels among us

At 2:30 this afternoon I will be wearing a smile so big my face will think it's on the wrong body. That will be the start of my vacation. My 10 glorious days of not having to be a slave to a time clock.

In honor of the angels who helped me make it through the week I have a little craft project to share with you. One of the girls at work frequently posts things to my facebook wall. It's either a dessert idea, a snarky comment or a craft project.

Recently she posted this picture on my wall

I really liked this so I set out to make my own. I hit Dollar Tree in search of the pieces needed to make one. I couldn't find the exact same things so I made some substitutions.

Here's mine.

The head is glass but I didn't like the glass vases they had and they didn't have any clear glass plates. The vase I chose is a plastic one and the wings are plastic bowls.  I haven't tried it yet but I'm thinking this would look nice at night with some lights inside the bottom.

Gibbs did a thorough inspection and he found flaws that he wasn't happy with. He said that the bowls were in a very inconvenient position and there were no treats in them. He recommends that I make immediate alterations to this model.

Cute idea and plastic seems like a good way to go with little furry creatures about!

I saw this on FB and i like yours better than the fb one. it would be really pretty with the batteries lights in the top or in the body..

Yes, lights inside would make this total perfection!

That is very cute! Enjoy your time off work! I hope the week goes by very slowly for you!

What a way to end the roughest week of the year...a 10 day vacation. I know you'll enjoy every minute.

Love the angel, but you'd better listen to Gibbs. He's probably right.

Have a fabulous day. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥
