Today I wanted to share with you some of my religious symbols I guess you could call them. It seems I can't go to any kind of antique show without seeing holy symbols of some sort used to display jewelry or other objects.
I found this Infant de Prague statue at a sale and he was not a very good specimen and probably came from Mexico. I painted him with latex paint mixed with unsanded grout and then sanded him back to expose some of the gray primer I had first painted him with. I love him with my religious medal draped around his neck.
I wear this type of jewelry almost on a daily basis when I am working. I love the old religious medals affixed to beautiful vintage jewelry and beads.
This next can is a very old holy water vessel from Notre Dame. The patina on this can is amazing.
Even the lid is beautiful.
My Infant de Prague looks very priestly wearing these jewels.
This next photo is an old cross I found at a thrift shop this week. Isn't it great? It's old and hand made and most of the paint has worn off, but it was love at first sight when I found it. It reminds me of the hymn we used to sing when I was a girl, The Old Rugged Cross.
Last but not least, I posted this on my Facebook page today. I found it on Pinterest and truer words were never spoken. Sometimes I get so caught up with racing around, I forget how near my guardian angels are to me.
Thanks for stopping by.
