JUST REDUCED - NOW JUST $200 Why is this the "Angel of Trust"? Perhaps it is her gentle demeanor and expression; perhaps it is the fact that she has taken off her halo and is holding it
(sweet teen's idea), making her appear that she isn't "too holy" to be approachable; or perhaps it is the quiet confidence that she seems to portray.

We all need to learn to trust. It is the first task of a baby, to learn, to trust, that his or her physical and love needs will be met, and sometimes even before the baby knows the need has arisen! I want to always have that sort of trust with my heavenly Parent!

Lots of texture in this piece. Painted with acrylics and watercolors plus collaged vintage music pages for wings, this vintage reclaimed box can be used to store candles or any other treasure. You can even use it to store jewelry! The piece is signed and dated on the back. The assemblage comes with clear bumpers on the corners to protect furniture or walls from damage and with the original rope handle intact. The edge of the box that frames the angel has been distressed by hand. If you plan on hanging the piece on the wall, please tell me at check out and I will add a hanger at no extra charge. (The hanger will not allow it to sit flat on a surface if you plan on displaying it on a table top.)

I have always been a collector of things. I remember gathering pretty pebbles in a baby food jar, chosen from a creek that ran through the farm I lived on as a girl. Mom poured water in the jar to help clean up those precious gems, and we placed it in the porch windowsill where we could admire the soft beauty of the stones...the jar remained there through that winter, the frigid temperatures causing the water in the jar froze, trapping tiny air bubbles amid the pebbles - the effect was beautiful. I've never outgrown the wonder of finding the surprise of beauty in the ordinary rhythms of life. For me, my art and my calling to help others are an extension of my passion for gathering together fragments and bits of beauty from around my world... And that is what I want to help you with. To discover the quiet beauty and remarkable peace that waits to be discovered in the ordinary, commonplace, collected moments that color the masterpiece that is your life! {In expressing ourselves creatively, we are inspired and inspire others!
