Cemeteries. Graveyards. Headstones. All of these words seem to send shivers up the backbone of most people, but I am drawn to them in a most unexplainable way. I really am amazed at the art work that went into the older headstones and some of the "newer" monuments just take my breath away. Did you know that you can date an old headstone from the type of engraving? Some of the most unusual and incredible folk art is to be found on old gravestones.
The wings on this one are made from the hearts of vintage snow mats!
These are real gravestone castings. One is an angels face and the other has a hand with the finger pointing to heaven and it says "All Is Well".
2 little primitive angels...
My favorite thing! I have no idea how big this is! I got it at an auction and when you look closely, you can see that it is folded. I'm sure the rest of the information about Col. David Payson is on there, but I don't want to take it out of the frame. I would sure like to give this a try sometime...
And this is the sweetest of all. See the feather from the angel's wing?
Thanks for stopping by... have a great weekend!
