This weekend challenge inspired the memory of looking back through the adventures of my life. The past seems to surface as we age!
Yes, and all that junk that slipped through my life, both in my mind and hands. Thinking now of all the yard sales, with all that junk scattered, yet, not all was junk to me, perhaps to the seller, yes; buyer a treasure waiting for discovery.
My best experience was finding this work of art, two statues of the Holy Family, about 12″ tall, one of Blessed Mother, the other Saint Joseph holding Baby Jesus, dressed with several paint chips proudly vintage.
As I purchased, the seller remarked, “I knew someone would come along and appreciate these.” He did not know how actual his words were.
Not the best picture below, but to give you a glimpse of my prize.
Catholic accused of worship of statues how ridiculous and they who accuse know it!
Most of us/all of us have treasures that reminds of this or that! We feel bad if it gets lost, stolen, or broke. Admit it!
Religious pictures, statues are meant only to be an inspiration to a Catholic. Amen!
In the meantime, I enjoyed repairing the few nicks and chips on these statues, knowing they are only made with ceramics of sort.
