An angel for Christmas

I interrupt the progress on the reupholstering for a little decor makeover.  I have an big, lovely empty frame above my mantel.  I was trying to figure out what to put in other than a wreath.  I stumbled upon this angel at Goodwill. 

I like it just not the color.  Can you guess what color I painted it?  Yes, not a big surprise.  White!  It took 2 coats of Annie Sloan's Pure White.  I'm liking it.

Here is where the angel now resides for the Christmas season.  Just love how she is floating.  I used fishing line to hang it from the frame to avoid putting another hole in the wall.

Thought I would give you my nighttime view.
