Do You Collect Angels?
Many people that love angels also choose to collect angels of some
sort. I’ll admit that I am an angel collector. Though I will not simply
purchase something if it has an angel on it – I am a bit picky about
what I choose to add to my angel collection!
In my office, hand painted wooden angels “fly” above my computer. A
large white porcelain angel with enormous wings stands guard at my
personal altar where I place prayers or other spiritual items that have
meaning. I have several pieces of jewelry that feature angels – an
angel necklace that will open and hold prayers, another angel necklace
that is a pendant and also an angel bracelet. Finally handed down from
my grandmother is a painting of an angel that hangs in my bedroom. This
angel is rather unique, with deep blue wings and a pink robe.
Keeping an angel collection is a great way to remind yourself of the
wonderful angel connection that we all have all the time. As we look
and touch and are surrounded by these items, we think of the real
angels that are in our lives.
Have you thought about collecting angels? Do you collect angels? What angels have made it into your collection?

that is good Melvin. i think whatever it is that you collect, you are still having collections of angels which are very helpful in your daily life. it does not matter whether it is a figurine, wallpaper or paintings. as long as you put angels as part of your life.

I don't collect figurines but I do collect angel picture as well as wallpapers. Angel pictures for me are a great way to relax and feel the tranquility of life. It somehow de-stresses me and it's really a great thing there..

Dartz, it does not matter if you collect angel figures or not. it is good that you still have them. we do not need to collect angels for them to see that we appreciate them. sometimes even if we don't have angel figures at home, as long as we recognize and believe on them, that is the most important thing.

I have a handful of angel statuettes, but not what you would call a collection.

Yes Melvin, i also do not see anything wrong in collecting angels and trying to be dependent on them. at first, i thought that we should not worship angels, for me, i don't worship them but i have came to know that many people do this. and i do respect them.

I know someone who collects angels a lot. She's a great friend of mine and she seems to be obsessed with figurines of angels. Well I don't think it's bad but sometimes it becomes different when you tend to worship images and figures a lot than the real ones.

Hi Jen. i have not thought about putting angels in my car. thank you for sharing it. i have so many angel figurines at home but i do not even have one in my car. i think that putting angels in my car is a good thing. although i know that my angels are alway s guiding me, it will still make me feel safe everyday. i always travel and i think this will be very helpful.

My home has many angels , I have found them in flea markets, bazaars , also ones given as a gift and a couple of angels that must have been waiting for me to take them home as I found them in an unusual place. Also in my car I have an angel of travel always with me.

I usually don't paint or do angel figures. but i collect angel figurines. and i really love doing it. angel figurines are very pleasing to the eyes and it makes me feel safe having those. i am also very thankful because i just don't collect angel figurines, my friends also are helping me by giving angel figurines.

I collect quite a lot of angel-related art. I have quite a sum of them on my online storage, roughly 140 in total. Mostly anime styled though, as well as the odd "Angel of death" every now and then.
