A few new recent acquisitions have made their way over into our home.
I *love* antique holy images.
I feel they remind my kids daily to grow up in their faith.
This antique intaglio print of the Sacred Heart is printed in France
and was just $1.
(My first authentic French treasure here, folks!
I need to find a frame for this 8"x10" piece.
And, at just one dollar, we see true treasures don't have to be pricey!)
I also had been spying this vintage image of the Mass of the Last Supper
at a junk shop I visit occasionally. Their prices are usually a little high for what they sell
so you have to watch.
Well, I had been watching thisprint for several weeks and hadn't made a move on it yet.
last week, I walked in on a furniture hunt and saw another woman asking for
this piece to be taken off the wall so she could see it.
How dare she look at my future purchase??!!
Would she --buy it?
Ten minutes later it went back up on the wall.
So, at that point, I decided it was going home with me.
I was too connected.
$10 on this 12"x16" print.
And finally, another chalkware Sacred Heart of Jesus has entered our home.
The details on Him are extraordinary.
Look at that face.
I don't mind that statue is chipped in several places.
He stands guard, at 18" tall, by our front door.
When this statue arrived at the local antique mart,
Dorothy, the shop keeper, called me up and told me to come down right away to come get it
and that she was holding it for me.
I love it when she does that.
Dorothy knows that when I take something like this with me,
it will be going to a good home.
