Three or More Tuesday – Cherubs

Three or More Tuesday is sponsored by Tam at The Gypsy's Corner. Please visit her for more participating posts.

I thought to share a few cherub items for this week’s Three or More post. The first four are on my dresser.


Since all items are secondhand finds, this post also qualifies for 2nd Time Around Tuesday, hosted by Diane of A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words.

Here is a tiny cherub sitting demurely while displaying a blue rosebud glued to one wing. I spotted this last month amid various small objects at the thrift shop.

[The blue and white pitcher is by I. Godinger and Co. from their Antique Reflections series. I got it at Marshalls in spring 2008 for $7.99.]

Found on two separate visits to my community thrift shop are two cherub napkin rings. I have them on the dresser with dried pink rosebuds. (The color is much prettier in person.)
In between them is another cherub holding a little scented ball from the potpourri container behind him.

A couple years ago I got the next item on Ebay. These two nicely carved cherubs hold a vessel formed from draped fabric.

The faces are quite expressive.



Thank you for stopping by and viewing my cherubs.

Kammy,
That is a pitcher from Godinger. I was attracted to the design because it has a French look , and reminded me of toile.

I invite you to drop by for a visit (at the above url)as I also celebrate the blogland event 2nd Time Around Tuesday.

Cherubs...angels...these little delights tell a great deal about the inner character of the individual who collects them :)

They are most lovely!

What a sweet collection of cherubs! I love angels, too -- and keep a couple tucked here and there in the house, just a reminder of the angels amongst us.

What a lovely cherub collection. I have more fairy figurines but I have several angel prints. Hmmm, that could be some nice 'Three Or More' posts. Thank you for participating and have a wonderful week,
