I found this statue in a thrift store the other day. It was lying down, way on the back of the shelf.
I'm not really sure if it's a statue of a saint, or of Christ, but either way, I liked it and brought it home.
I also found the little celadon rice bowl the same day, and decided to put the statue and bowl on the foyer chest, with the candle and old Bible.
Do you love the chippy paint on it?
I found two smooth stones in the garden, and put them in the bowl.
The old Bible, belonged to my great grandfather...
...I found a little boutonniere pressed in the pages. I'd love to know when he wore it...perhaps my grandmother's wedding?
Somehow, the combination of things felt very serene to me.
I hope it makes you feel the same way.
I'll see you at these parties...
