The Cherubs Are Taking Over-Part 1

I have a thing for Cherubs. I'm in love with them. But they only get to come out to play a couple of times a year. Christmas and Valentine's Day.

This year, they missed Christmas. I think they went to Florida for Christmas. But they made it back in time for Valentine's Day.

My obsession with Cherubs started about 5 years ago when I was getting married. I was buying them from everywhere. Mostly thrift stores, antique stores and eBay.

You will see as I post my Valentine's Day decor, that they really have taken over my family room.

I placed a couple of them under glass to try & keep them under control. I gave them a bed of shredded tissue so that they would have a comfortable place to rest. As you can see, I'm still in a pink mood.

I even dressed up their habitat some with this paper heart garland. I just punched a bunch of hearts out of Valentine paper and hot glued them to some twine. I really wanted to use white string, but do you think I could find mine? Obviously the answer is "NO". So twine was the next best thing. Fast, cheap and easy project. But then, aren't all my projects fast, cheap & easy? Kind of like me. Just kidding.

I placed these "faux" white roses in this cherub planter. The roses originally came wrapped up in red foil. I exchanged the red foil for some pink tissue paper.

I added some vintage reproduction prints from my computer to this thrift store frame. This cherub is actually Cupid as he has arrows and a bow.

My heart still goes pitter patter when ever I see a Cherub.

Stay tuned as more Cherubs are still to come. I just have to get them to pose for photos before making their debut. I may just have to put some more under glass in order to do so.

  7. I love your cherubs! Mine stay out at all times whether they like it or not. I was watching an old movie from the 30's and the woman had 2 of the most enormous cherubs on her wall, they were the size of toddlers! So I didn't feel so bad about my obsession after that.
