Virgin a day!

A "gardening" angel

My first hand made holy card for me!!!
William A Bouguereau is the artist.
I added my favorite garden flowers and then did a little painting. then I printed it out on to card stock and trimmed the outside with german scrap. Added a few of my pressed flowers.

Haiku my heart!

Our family nativity, 1969. I bought a plastic one so the boys could touch and play with the people.

When I was a child
I spoke as a child
And saw events in a childish way, innocent.
I will not put away my childish ways.

Virgin a day!

Sharing my Christmas Marys!
20 years ago I made 2 decoration pieces of the Nativity.
I always loved the story of Christmas!

I am quite sure that Mary approves of the bears telling her story!

Another picture that was my mom's!
My mother was a devout catholic. Not the in your face kind, just a loving woman who's religion was a very important part of her life.
