This angel was made via family assembly line. I remember that each of us had a job- bend the pipe cleaner, put the lace on, tie the gold ric-rac, glue the head on, glue the hair on, etc... Then the angels were always put up near the top of the Christmas tree since they were on the fragile side.
This ornament was purchased a few years ago at a trip to the Columbus Zoo. They were on sale and since I have a lot of memories of zoo trips with friends and family, I thought it worth the few bucks.
Thought this ornament was a great representation of the fun Spring Break vacation that we had at Myrtle Beach in 2010.
Santa brought me this lovely ornament when I was a teenager.
