Recently, I started to collect little designer vinyl toys (I’m sure you noticed). I tend to run collect lot of things but since I was in high school, I have collected small Black angles. Some favorites in my collection are designed by Thomas & Ami Blackshear, but I have one Angel named Moxy by a designer unknown to me (the store did not have a box or designer information when I purchased him) that I have had since 1994 & he has always been on my nightstand watching over me.
About 8 years ago, I accidentally knocked him over & he went crashing to the ground. Luckily, his body stayed in tact but his wings were broken in 2 places. The breaks were pretty clean so I was able to piece him back together & once I did, he became much more precious to me.
When Suite Suzy & I started dating, she found a really cute chair for Moxy to sit in & it was so perfect. Although the chair was perfect, I had to be careful to make sure that he did not fall off. Looking back, I should have put some double-sided sticky tape so that he was temporarily more stationary.
Anyway, a few weeks ago, Suite Suzy was fighting Amelia as she was throwing one of her terrible two tantrums & in the midst of the battle between mother & baby, Moxy’s chair was accidentally knocked over & he went crashing to the ground once more.
I was downstairs when it happed & as soon as I heard the crash, I shouted out, I hope that is not Moxy!!!!!!!!!! Olivia quickly shouted out yessssssssssssss. My heart sank as I rushed up the stairs to see my precious angle shattered once more.
Luckily, the breaks are the same as before but for some reason, I am reluctant to piece him back together. Since he’s been broken, he has been hanging out on the kitchen island, waiting for me to make up my mind.
I really don’t know what to do, but I know I miss waking up & seeing him looking peacefully up at me.
