Thursday Three - 3 angels

I have always loved angels. My angel collection is special to me. I will share three of my favorites. These all happen to be Jim Shore angels.This what I call my "Scandinavian Angel". That's not the real name, but when I saw this one, it reminded me of the blue and white Scandinavian things. This was the first one of my collection of Jim Shore Angels.

This is the "Angel of Greatfulness" and we got it after we first purchased our RV. We were very greatful to have the RV and this was appropriate. I had it in the RV for awhile, but was afraid it would break so moved it into our house.

This is the "Angel of Healing". My DH got this one for me because I'm a nurse and always enjoy nurse things.

I have others, too, that I enjoy - but this is the Thursday Three! Enjoy!

Evening, Ruthie! I just love your angels. My Mother has one of these, but I can't remember what they are called. She collects angels too. I love where your angels are sitting, looks very pretty.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Those angels are lovely. I loved the hot cross bun story. Isn't it nice to be so cherished and remembered for over 49 years. You are blessed!

Blue is my favorite color also. I love all your blue candle accents I see in your pictures from time to time. Lovely!

I loved the showcasing of three of your pictures a few blogs back. I would like to do something like that if your wouldn't mind. I thought it was a wonderful idea.

I'm also going to do something with books one of these days.

I hope your knee is better. Its really hard when something like that starts up. I'm trusting with you that the shot has given you real relief!

Thanks for stopping by today! Yes, we do have lots of rain in Oregon, but the beauty in our landscapes makes it all worth while. When I lived in Colorado Springs, every year I would drag a rose bush back from Oregon to plant. It would bloom all summer, but die out in the winter. Here in Oregon, they bloom until after Thanksgiving.

Always enjoy stopping by!

I love the Jim Shore collection. I have the complete Jim Shore nativity scene. As a wedding gift, a friend bought me the creche (is that how you spell it?) and sent it off to be signed by the artist himself. It is such a special collection to me.

Hello Ruthie! I don't think I've ever seen Jim Shore angels. They are beautiful. I like how they have a story to go with them.
