I seem to have a growing collection of little mid-century Catholic statues and figurines.
I grew up in a Catholic family and attended Catholic school. That was a long time ago, back in the 60's when it was mostly nuns who taught.
So figurines of Mary, Jesus, and angels remind me of those years. In particular I seem to be drawn to statues that are old, worn, or broken...
Those statues whose gold trim has become worn and faded over the years...
...or whose painted bases have chipped...
... and even those who are missing hands.
None of that matters, as they all make me think of my Mom, my Dad, and my Grandparents. This small collection is part of a makeover my little home office/painting studio will be undergoing as I move into the bigger spare bedroom later this year. And from the looks of it, I think it's pretty safe to say that I'm leaning toward a Vintage Catholic decor.
I'm linking up to My Romantic Home's Show & Tell Friday.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
