Such Angels!

When I was very young, my grandpa, aka Papoo, which is Greek, owned a card and gift shop. He would give us little presents from his stock. Something very lovely that both my sister and I have are these birth month angels. Because we are both Spring birthdays, they each have some pink in them. He gave them to us because we were such angelic little girls who always helped our grandma and mother and never fought with each other or yelled...if you believe that I've got some Arizona coastal property to sell ya!
The April girl is holding a basket of colored eggs, and has a bunny peeking around her skirt. There are clusters of flowers on her skirt, and a sweet expression on her face.Both angels have pretty rosy cheeks. For May, she is holding two big bouquets of peonies and has a cluster on her skirt. I also think her eyes are a little "come-hither" for an angel!
To see more beautiful pinks, be sure to visit our hostess Beverly at How Sweet the Sound!
Be sure to stop by next week for my May Day Giveaways. Ten other blogs are participating and all will be listed here.

Oh Elizabeth! I had an October angel during my youth...we all had these in the early 60's! Haven't seen it, or thought of it in decades...wonder where it is?
Love the new look of your blog, very stylish!

Those are really sweet. I have given all my grand-daughters and now my great-grand-daughter little Birthday dolls too.

Uh. You're right Elizabeth. A little too "come hither", she looks as though she's hiding something under her cloak of peonies.

She sure is a purdy little angel.
