I came across this 7.5" by 10" "decorative wooden box"
at Hobby Lobby and immediately saw... an angel in waiting!
(the real incentive was that the book/box was 50% off!)
Meandering around the store... I picked up two drawer pulls
(which will become the shoulders for the arm attachments).
The drawer pulls are round and textured with brass centers.
Then I found the two wooden finials... perfect stubby little legs!
I'm thinking a clay over fabric head... and then a pair of wooden wings.
