Vintage Mary Garden Statue
(click on any photos to enlarge)
This is the first time I've participated in Blue Monday...
...and it didn't take me long to decide what to share.
I think this is just about the most beautiful vintage Mary garden statue I've ever seen. The details are amazing, especially if you enlarge the photos...
I was so fortunate to find her at an antique mall this past spring during a 50% off sale. I first posted about her here, back in May.
She currently resides under our cherry tree, watching over our backyard garden and all the little birds and furry creatures who visit us.
I recently fashioned an "autumn leaves" wreath for her head and, as you can see, the sun was creating the most luminous glow when I photographed her.
