My Newest Treasure . . .

Nowadays I am not really looking to add anything new to my collections.

But sometimes, the right item at the right price presents itself and. . . well. . .

I suppose I need no excuses why I brought this statue home the other day.

I was drawn to it like a moth to a flame.

I even had the perfect place in the house waiting for her.

A few days later I started adorning her with a vintage silver rosary,

And some of my most beautiful dried roses I have saved from my rose garden.

And the best part to me was making this crown for her.

Mary is after all, the Queen of the Angels.

I made the crown from purchasing a simple metal bracelet cuff from Michael's jewelry making section and bending it to a desired shape.  Then I finished it off by adding a beautiful jewel in the center. 

I still would like to make her a crown of roses, but I suppose that will be in the future.

Petals of love to you all,
