Christmas Memories–Simple Angel Figures

I have some angel figures that I set out every year at Christmastime. They are nothing fancy or spectacular, but they are special to me because they are from various events held years ago at Zion Chatt and they bring back memories of Christmases past.

There are three ceramic angel figures from Zion Chatt’s Sunday School, when our son Jeff was little.

The first one is dated 1982, when Jeff was still a baby:

This angel is dated 1984:

I have another angel just like the one above with its label still attached to the bottom: Martin Luther Home, Beatrice, Nebraska. It was probably from about the same time period.

Here is a straw angel. As I recall I received it at a Church Women’s Christmas party.

I believe this angel was made from a hankie by Dorothy Humbert. She was very crafty and made the most clever gifts and table favors.

Sometimes the simple things are some of the things you cherish the most.

Below are a couple angels from one of my Nativity sets. These are little more elaborate.


And here is a photo of our granddaughter, who is a very special angel to us:

    As you may or may not know my Grandma Kathryn Carr Black was a cousin to Dorothy and we have one of those hankies angels she made as well.

    1. I knew you were related to the Carrs somehow, but I wasn’t sure how. Those hankie angels are special. Dorothy must have made a lot of them. She was very crafty.
