Sweet February~My Guardian Angel

I don't recall when, where or why I bought my first Angel Figurine.  However, I can put together a scenario of the when and where....when ever I found one that was vintage and under ten dollars.  The where, I'm sure you have already guessed, would be in thrift, junk and antique stores.

WHY?  I really never thought about it until last month when I learned about 'Kismet'.  It wasn't exactly a new word to me...just one not fully understood with no history in my world of words.
Kismet...a power that is believed to control what happens in the future.
Angels are very popular collectibles for various reasons like my 'when and where', but many collect them for their symbolism of 'Goodwill' and 'Guardianship'.  Others search out ones that represent a theme or activity like praying, skating, dancing, pets and almost anything one can think of...like my...Birthday Month Figurines.

I collected Birthday Girl Figurines for years before I added the 'Winged Ones' with the first ones for the month of January.  At first January was the only Month I was going to collect, and they didn't have to be all from a certain maker like Lefton or Enesco or whoever...they just had to have January on them.

That lasted until I would run across another Month Angel that did go with one of my January Angels.  I mean, really, why not go for a matching set of All Twelve Months. To this date, I have 13 Angels and 13 Birthday Girl Figurines.

You would think out of 26 Figurines there would be at least One Set of Matching Birthday Figurines.  Not yet...I'm still on the Treasure Hunt...but now I know the WHY!

Now this makes me want to collect them. I don't give a second thought to a figurine on a dusty shelf at a thrift store, but when I see them grouped like this, I love them. I love that there is a unifying theme like birthday months.
