Recently a Folk Art Pottery friend asked me to share her Antique Mall booth. I was ecstatic! This mall is very select and it's very difficult to acquire a booth there. It's large and could take hours to see the entire mall, but her booth is right near the front...prime real estate!
I was faced with the task of creating something that would compliment her art and still be true to my creativity. So I came up with Plunder Junk Angels. Making angels from junk is not a new idea, I know, but I don't think there are any quite like these anywhere in the mall. I used some of the tiny clay face pendants she creates as some of the angels' faces, but mostly they are total junk finds.
I used to get into trouble as a little girl for my plundering. I still recall my Granny's scolding when I was around 6 or so for plundering in her attic. I guess this *junkingitis* was kicking in way back then...it's the hunt that is the most fun sometimes, right? Anyway, that is why I called them Plunder Junk Angels. I also placed some of my garden totems in the booth, but it is the angels that really stand out.
