Angels we have seen on high

current mood: bouncy

Back in November of 2006, I explained the origin of the angels that adorn The Compound every Christmas. Over the years, these paper angels have been cut out, colored, painted, and otherwise gussied up by friends, family, and me. The book they come from, A Christmas Angel Collection, is a little pricier than in the old days when I bought several, because it's out of print now. The drawings are based on famous paintings from centuries past.

I store them flat in an angel tin, and every year, it's Tim's job to take them out, fix them so they'll stand, and put them on the molding over our living room and dining room windows. And it's our job not to turn on the ceiling fan in the dining room, because that sends angels a'flyin'.
