~ Charming Angel with the hankie skirt....

Isn't she charming. A wonderful red angel! This was my Christmas card from my parents last month. This darling angel, has a skirt made from an poinsettia covered handkerchief. And if you look closely her wings are part of the same handkerchief. 
There are two slits made in the card to pull the folded hankie through.
And taped down on the back to keep the handkerchief in place.
I also received this vintage dresser scarf... with tiny white lacy edges.  The red poppy's are so crisp and bright. I rarely get a nice piece of vintage linen, with the red thread still vibrant.
So I am assuming, I will have to hand wash this lovely scarf .... to keep that thread looking fresh.
I really do love that card. I have placed back in her envelope... and then placed inside of a baggie. I want to use her in my decorations for next year. And want to keep her skirt minty, so I am keeping her bagged up.
