Here’s a little before-and-after for you:
And a moment of serendipity:
I made everything without knowing exactly what I was going to place in the angel’s hands. I went out into my workshop/storage area/disaster zone to find something small and appropriate. Said workshop is out in the semi-enclosed back porch, and while I was browsing my miscellany, I found that a moth had died and landed in a shoebox.
It was perfect. And that’s what’s in the angel’s right hand.
