Baby-blankie Cherubs

It has been on my mind lately that I wanted...no, that I needed a banner/swag across my kitchen hutch. You know... in keeping with my "more is better" mantra. I was lucky enough to pick up these two baby cherubs for .50¢ each. These little plastic cuties were originally gold in color, a few squirts of some flat white spray paint and some stain to distress them fixed up that little problem in no time. I added some shabby chic fabric to update their little "blankies" and added some fluffy feathers to their wings and of course a top hat. I'm thinking 2011 is going to be all about top hats~ I was going to create a swag with some kinda thanksgiving sum'thin-sum'thin but I didn't think "you turkey" would fly with some folks-- some people have no sense of humor! So, I opted to use something I had purchased several years ago and had stashed away-- a glittered happy holidays banner. taaaaaaaaa daaaaaaaaaaa... finished in no time flat. While we are in the kitchen, I'll show you another baby-blankie cherub. This one sports a tutu and a strand of vintage pearls along with her pointy party hat. She hovers over the candy cabinet that holds all my grandkids chocolates and suckers~

Thanks for the comment on my blog, your right no one wants to spend money now a days they just can't afford it. I kept hearing "Quarter? Quarter?" I'm like "not in this life time sucker" I'll give it away before I let you Mr. Insult man have it!! I didn't actually say that I'm just letting you know what my brain said :) You are quite the crafty artsy girl and I really enjoyed your blog. The Grand babies are too cute! The little boy looks just like my son when he was growing up Ahhhh some 32 years ago. Have fun and enjoy those babies I have a boy and girl also. Hugs,Pearl
