Isn't She Lovely?

Oh my gosh, have you ever seen anything so beautiful in your life? I certainly haven't. I adore this piece. ADORE Her. I found her here, where I also "met" this sweet blogger, Colleen. You can take a look at her shop, it's a good thing I don't live closer, I love it all! You can tell just by looking at this vintage wood carved and then papier-mâché topped Madonna that she has a very good eye for beautiful things. Yes, she is for sale, and she is $1800 if you are interested, please contact Colleen. I know it will be hard for Colleen to part with Her.

Are you seeing a theme here? Everytime I turn around there She is, the Blessed Mother. Wow. I've prayed to her a lot lately, and since my nephew Tim passed away I've been sleeping with my rosary... praying it from one end until another (or until I fall asleep). I'm not sure if She is telling me that all will be well, or that I should repent from my sins (including saying or thinking "cuss" words- that's what my grandson calls bad words). I keep asking to be a better person, but the next day there I still AM, same old me)! Maybe She is just letting me know that She is there. She is very comforting, the Virgin Mary is.

  2. She is gorgeous! I love Santos so I am certainly taken with her. (Sorry I was signed in under my grandson a minute ago and had to erase it.) Why don't we pool our money and share her! HAHA Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

  3. You are feeling the presence of our Blessed Virgin Mother, Mary, during May ~ the Month of Mary. She must be hearing your prayers! My wise 81 year old mother told me earlier this month that it was the time to pray to Mary. You can read about it here:

    Hope she soothes your heart.

    Warm regards,


  4. She is more than lovely! She is a knock-out! Is that appropriate? That was meant in the best way!

    By the way, you have been tagged. Please go to my blog and read today's post.
