Still liking angels -- in a BIG way!

I shared in the past some of my angel projects, so I won't be making this post too lengthy.  But I did want to share with you my latest angel creation.  Did I mention that it's 9' tall?

I bought the saloon style shutter doors at a garage sale and immediately they sang "angel" to me.  So I rounded up a 8' 4x4 from my lumber stash.  Next I needed the head -- this one happens to be the backside of a Chinese checkers board.  The halo is a rusty barrel ring.  And then just for fun and detail I added some miscellaneous doodads. 
     She's currently leaning on the outside of my house.  She's a little scary up close, but looks kind of cool from a distance.  I'm hoping someone will want her to attach to a barn, house, tree, etc.

I'm linking this up to Gail's Catch-as-Catch-can Linky Party

Midge, Thanks for your kind words on our blog! I know, it was a hard decision to make. BUT, I still plan to create and show photo's of my house, yard, etc.

Please try and make it to JunkFest! The sale is September 17, 2011 and my three junk sisters will still be going strong! I'm sure I will be there helping out so make sure you say HI and introduce yourself!

Very creative. I'd put it on my barn.
