yesterday i began a photo album as joking documentation of my mother’s addiction to black Christmas angels. while it’s been a good laugh and has prompted my mother to finally say that 46 black angels may be as many as our house can hold, the album has also brought a number of people out from the woodwork, saying, “my mother has been dying to get some black angels for our house. where does your mother find them?”
i asked my mom, and i gave answers to those who asked, but i am still struck by the fact that there is a real demand for something that in my house has been taken for granted and even treated as superfluous. so i decided to share the wealth with tumblrville, in case any of you, or your mothers, have been dreaming of a black Christmas :)
she stays on the lookout pretty much everywhere she goes, and observes that high quality angels seem to be getting more scarce, but her most frequent suppliers have been:
The Dollar Store (seriously)
Burlington Coat Factory
…and she’s gotten at least two from Rite Aid.
I’m sure this not an exhaustive list. Have you spotted a beautiful black angel somewhere?
