Hello to all.  ELLEN'S ANGELS IS ON HIATUS. We have had an exciting three years. Downsizing and moving. Soaking in the joy of being with our twin grandchildren. And supporting our daughter, their mother, when she was gifted with a healthy donated set of lungs in May 2019. We are thankful for the transplant surgery which was executed beautifully by the remarkable Duke Translant team!! Such a magnificent blessing and a huge turning point in our family's life.

And now Covid and natural disasters - things we cannot impact. And the Black Lives Matter paradigm shift and upcoming election - things we can impact. As the clay calms me down, I am slowly pulling it back out. My hope is to stock my treasured vendors for Christmas. I'll update the website when this occurs.

Huge heartfelt thanks for your interest in these little guys.
