2nd Time Around Tuesday

I bought these two plastic cherubs awhile back for $2 bucks each. They were gold with no embellishments. *gasp* Life is to short not to go around wearing a party hat 24/7....I'm sorry, life is to be celebrated!!Whenever I see these gold cherubs I pick them up and make them "happier" and pass them along to other people.Here are the two with a fresh coat of white paint and some brown paint to distress the harsh white... I covered the plastic draping with real fabric and added a party hat to both of them. The "boy" wearing the blue hat has been shipped to Karen in MN and the "girl" wearing the pink party hat is for my grandaughter Chloe. I had to add more to Chloe's cherub as she would expect that from her Nana~ Sooooooo I added a bit of a vintage pearl necklace, added some feathers to the cherubs wings... painted the toe nails-- pink of course. Topped it all off with a rose colored tutu with a rose belt~ (it shows up darker in the photo than it really is)
Here is a close up of the little cherub~

I would suggest if you ever see these gold cherubs to buy them and release their inner happiness with a coat of paint and a party hat~
