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.
