After leaving Don Juan Foods on Tuesday (See HERE), we drove around the corner to The Treasure Chest, a non-profit thrift store.
I'm always on the lookout for Marys and this visit provided me with a watershed moment.
I love the Mary with broken arms on the lower left. I think I will wrap a bit of fabric ribbon over her shoulders to cover them . . . or maybe just leave her as is.
The kneeling Mary next to her really excited me because of her black face and features. Most unusual.
The broken Guadalupe? Well, it IS Our Lady of Guadalupe. Couldn't pass her up just because she was broken.
The kitschy little blond Mary surrounded by plastic flowers was a surprise find. I tried to cut off the wire stems but they weren't having it. So - I cleaned it all off getting rid of a ton of dust and dirt. Didn't she clean up nicely?
And last but not least, in the background is a sweet white ceramic Mary.
Broken Mary rise
Live day to day within me
Healing me heals you
