Blue Angel | Vintage Hardware Assemblage Art

Vintage Hardware Assemblage Art

I made another RosaAnne Angel from my collection of vintage hardware and junk finds. I enjoy putting the angels together but sometimes it’s hard to find a “body” for them or the right “head”. You would think with the crates and crates of junk I have that it would be easy. It’s not.

This angel is on a piece of 1×4 I picked up at a building site down the street from us. I brushed a little blue paint on the board, distressed, and waxed it. Then I went on the hunt for the perfect junky hardware.

I got my finds together and started looking for the right size screws and nails to put the pieces on the board with. Sometimes that’s the hardest part, believe it or not.

I drilled holes and added a wire hanger. The rusty (waxed) wire is an estate sale find.

What about this little RosaAnne Angel no. 4. Do you like the blue background?

  4. Leslie, I checked the entries and you have an entry for yesterday. I didn’t check prior days. There does seem to be a problem with the rafflecopter today. I just emailed support. Thank you.

  5. Don’t know whether others are still having problems but yesterday I tried 3 devices and various times of day and rafflecopter still didn’t work- wouldn’t click in or allow log in or out. Today is more of same. I give up.
