Psalm 17 3-9

Repurposed wall art, Heart and wings crown and keyhole

Psalm 17:3-9

Though you probe my heart,
    though you examine me at night and test me,
you will find that I have planned no evil;

    my mouth has not transgressed. 
Though people tried to bribe me,

    I have kept myself from the ways of the violent
    through what your lips have commanded.
My steps have held to your paths;
    my feet have not stumbled.
I call on you, my God, for you will answer me;
    turn your ear to me and hear my prayer.
Show me the wonders of your great love, 
you who save by your right hand
    those who take refuge in you from their foes.
Keep me as the apple of your eye;
    hide me in the shadow of your wings
from the wicked who are out to destroy me,
    from my mortal enemies who surround me.

Manitowoc Garden Fair, June 13 2015

June 13 will be my next outdoor show.  I pray for good weather and a good day!

The Manitowoc Garden fair is in its 25th year and is a class A event.  This is my first year participating in this lovely show and I am looking forward to meeting some new folks in the Manitowoc area.

Stop in if you are near by....Hugs....L

Tattered and Shabby remnants of Faith

I love the look of old and time worn.  On a recent treasure hunt I found this tattered Blessed Mother Mary statue.  She is made in Japan and is Vintage 1950s.  I just listed her on my vintage shop, "St Gabriels Garden"

I am not sure what caused the discoloration of this piece, but I work hard to actually re-create the aged appearance in my handmade wares.  A charming time worn and much loved piece and a memory of faith from years past.

Below I recreated the shabby charm in white on a cross with the Holy Trinity.  This lovely devotional is also available for purchase on my Vintage shop.
