.........but beautiful still


Somebody threw her away. We found her. Her wings were broken off and her head was broken from her body and broken into several pieces. They took her to the dump.

We found most of her, but not the wings, which she doesn't need anyway. We never did find her left hand, but we figure if Venus Di Milo can be beautiful with no arms, our angel is still beautiful with one hand.

Bobby put her back together, and she is destined to live in the ruins garden. She is sunning herself in the front garden now, but will be moved in due time.

She is well over 4 feet tall, and I consider her a treasure. She can live in our garden forever.

If I were to invite a statue into my garden, it would be a found one like yours. It's beautiful.

I am green with envy. I love this statue not because it is a lovely piece but because it has history. It was broken and rejected and you found her. You dug her out of oblivion sought out her scattered pieces and put her back together so she could go on with a renewed life in your garden. How can that not be simply beautiful?

I love her. She's beautiful! I'm constantly finding things that I rescue...they ALWAYS mean more, don't they? Thanks for sharing her!

Hi Janie,

I think life and the scars and wrinkles we get give us character. Flawless beauty can be boring. Your angel has a lot of character and is perfect for the garden.

She is beautiful. An angel come to earth with invisible wings.
