Seeing as I’m giving my blog a bit of a shake up over the next few months, one of the categories I want to resurrect is What’s Not To Love Wednesday, where I’ll be focussing on something that makes me trill with delight (trill? Well…you know what I mean.) And, unlike the rest of my blog, it may not have anything to do with beauty and wellbeing specifically – thought whatever it is, will always bring a frisson of joy into your life – a bit of glowology!
So, I thought today I would let you into something that I’ve always loved but I guess I’ve never really shouted about. Lately, for some reason – perhaps it’s the festive season – the pull towards them is getting stronger. It’s ANGELS & CHERUBS! I do enjoy a little squishy cherub or an elegant angel decoration or pattern 🙂
Going against the tide of unicorns, flamingos and mermaids – though they will always hold a place in my fluffy little heart no matter how old I am – I just feel that you can’t beat the innocence of a chubby faced cherub or the ethereal style of a strategically placed angel wing. And here a few of my favourite celestial finds…
We’ve recently decorated our bedroom with mid grey walls and white, grey and blush pink bedding and accessories, so I have these gorgeous grey gilt metal angel wings on order to place on the wall above the bed. I’m hoping they’ll add a little touch of heavenly peace in a household that doesn’t seem to know the meaning of whisper or close the doors gently! There are a few places that sell these, but at £165 from Sweetpea and Willow, they seem to be the best value. I’ve linked to the store for more info in the caption above.
Next on my love-it list is this 40cm funky shabby chic style angel wing wall decoration with LED lights. Wings and sparkle, really – what is NOT to love!
You may notice that the silver cherubs in the main picture are broken 🙁 But they still sit upon my living room shelf because I can’t bear to throw them away! I will be replacing them soon and they also come in antique gold or white from a lovely local interiors shop in Chiswick High Road called Decorexi which I could spend all day in. They cost around £25.
As my search for the must-have angel wings took flight (Ha! See what I did there?) I came across Michelle Lake Art on Etsy. Michelle is an artist from Canada and she does the most wonderful paintings and art which include a LOT of angel wings. Unfortunately, it seems she only ships to America and not to the UK, so I may have to wait until I make a visit state side to get me this painting! View more of Michelle’s beautiful work here.
I couldn’t leave this post without mentioning the best of them all. My very own cherub – Lily Angel! Ok, ok, calling her a cherub is pushing it but she’s my little angel nevertheless 😉
