Yesterday I was surfing around blogland and was inspired by Daisy Chain and 4 Wise Monkeys.
I got out this beautiful book and decided to try the little angels. and look what was born . . .

That is an absolutely lovely doll! I think this year I will put various sizes of this doll tucked into the evergreen boughs and ivy I use to decorate our fireplace mantel! Perhaps mixed with Joel Dewberry's partridges??
