They're Margaret Furlongs. Back in high school and for a few years afterwords, I really loved these. My mom would buy them for me for birthdays, Christmas, and other occasions, and my best friend and I gave them to each other, too. I still really like them, even though I've never really been into angels. It's the shell theme and the all-white porcelain, I think. They're pretty, and though the themes are religious, I never really think of them that way. The last two I remember getting are both from 2000: the Millennium Angel and the National Celebration Angel. I think the latter was to commemorate the G.W. Bush inauguration, but I chose to ignore that fact. So, it's been a while since I bought or received any of these. Maybe I'll pick up a couple more if I see them around and do an all-white tree next year. Who knows?
