Someone to watch over you

Italians are well watched over. There are angels everywhere, keeping an eye on things.

  1. Love this! I tried to play “name that angel,” but gave up halfway through. I will be far more conscious of these guardians in the future. Thanks for posting and Buona Immacolata!

  7. Wow, Debra–what a collection you have of these sweet cherubs!!! And where there’s not an angel watching over you, there’s your nosy and (usually) helpful neighbor.

  8. I like the fat little man angels. The one holding the green cloth does rather look as if he might have been bullied at angel school.
