Heavenly Little Christmas Angels

One of my favorite vintage collections is my Christmas angel collection. Most of the angel bell/figurines were made by Lefton or Napco in Japan in the 1950's or 1960's. 

This year I have chosen my desk hutch cubbies to display most of my little angels:


The little guitar angel...(maybe it's a lute),



And a little caroler angel, 



And a little Christmas tree angel.



Do you remember vintage paper glittered Christmas drape?  Dollar Tree sells it.  I cut it to fit the bottom of the cubby shelves.  Bottle brush trees, faux snow and miniature ornaments finish out the display.


Another little caroler angel,



And there's a little gift giving angel,



And a little basket bearing angel.



This cubby display has framed retro dotted wrapping paper as a backdrop.



This little angel is carrying a candle,



And here's another Christmas tree angel,



And another with packages.



Such little cuties.



And another little angel with a Christmas gift,



And a little candy cane angel.  (These two little red dress angels don't photograph well.)



This figurine is not an angel.  She's just a vintage Christmas figurine that was used in Christmas decorating my childhood home.  (I think I probably wore that same page boy haircut with bangs in the 1960's.) 

I hope you enjoyed my little angels...

  4. Do you keep a list to remember all those heavenly little girls? With all my Little Golden Books I was good with the first 300 or so but then had to use an Excel Spread sheet! Loved seeing your backdrops!

  13. We never used the drape at our house that I remember but I remember friends using it. I just love the vintage feel it adds. Good to know they have it at Dollar Tree. Your angel collection is wonderful!

  17. Beautiful little angels! I think we must have shopped in the same place. Reading your posts reminds me of things I've packed away for years--and makes me want to get them out! Not this year, though. I'll just enjoy yours. . .

  21. Carlene, your little angel collection is so darling. I love how you've displayed them. Framing the dotty paper was a fun idea. Great $1 find on the drape.
    Hugs,

  24. I still use the December (for my b-day) angel my grandmother gave me when I was a toddler. She could use company if you decide to reduce your wonderfully angelic collection!
