Valentines Day: Angels and Tea

There are two holidays that make me think of angels. One is Christmas and the other Valentine’s Day. Angels symbolize love, protection, and God’s presence. Over the years, I have collected and received angels as gifts. So I decided for this Valentine’s Day, I would share some of my angels, as we drink tea together. 
 This angel is just waiting for you to stop on over and visit with us for awhile.

 The angels are starting to gather at the table. These two shy angels are standing next to a heart plate...the top right of the plate says "Home is where our hearts feel welcome."

 Here are couple of loving angels from my "Dreamcicles" collection.

This angel sits by a sign that says, "LOVE ALWAYS: Let all that you do be done in love."

 This angel holds a special gift from my valentine...a diamond anniversary ring.

 A bird is singing sweet nothings to this angel... card behind him says, "The Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other." (1 Thes. 3:22)

 This ceramic angel jar holds lots of hearts...with sweet messages...

More conversation hearts in an antique cut glass candy serving bowl.

 This playful angel is having fun among hearts and rose pedals. Plate is an antique family heirloom.

 Well, since we are having tea, I had better share a teacup of mine. This floral rose design goes perfectly well with all the angels!!!'

 Wishing you all a
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
