Every time a bell rings
Remember those white feather wings Cindy sent me? Here they are. I lightly tinted them with coffee. Cindy's idea. I put the coffee in a spray bottle and misted them. If you have a pair of these wings and decide to do this be very careful. The feathers are adhered to cardboard and you don't want to get the cardboard real wet. I hit them with the blow dryer to fluff them up. The mannequin is cover with Christmas sheet music. At the top is "Hark the Herald Angels Sing". At the bottom is the quote "Every time a bell rings an angel gets her wings. This is from the movie "It's a Wonderful Life". The quote is really "his wings",but "her" wings was more fitting. The movie was made in 1946 and is a Jimmy Stewart classic. If you have never seen it, (I can't imagine where you have been ) then go rent it. Or wait till it gets closer to Christmas. It airs every year.
