Sweet Little Cherubs

These Sweet little Cherubs were found in Sabastapol, CA. They fly over my front door.
Sweet chubby faces.
Wish I could hear their music.
Look at those chubby legs. Oh, how cute they are.

cherub , plural cherubim, kind of angel . Cherubim were probably thought of in the ancient Middle East as composite creatures like the winged creatures of Assyria. In Jewish tradition, they are described (Ezek. 10) as having four faces and four wings and also as beautiful young men; but late Christian art made plump children of them, as in Raphael's Sistine Madonna. With the seraphim (see seraph ) they are said to be in the very presence of God. The color surrounding them is traditionally blue.

I love these cherubs, they remind of the ones I saw in an encyclopedia one time. I just loved them.
Have a great day!

Hi Glenda :)

Your cherubs are darling. I loved how you shared a bit of history about them :)

I think you were right about the woman wanting the house. I think her husband is being difficult. We have another couple coming through tomorrow night. Any thoughts?
