I loved just looking at the statues that would bring me comfort, it would feel so Holy, a sanctuary for me.
Today I still love to admire and just gaze at the beautiful statues in Churches or any where I may see them. If brings those emotions back, the Holiness and feeling Their love, specially if they are antique or maybe someone owning one that belonged to a Church or monastery. I feel those statues remained with the spirituality of so many prayers and love and devotion that they still are able to transmit that even throughout age.
I love as well the statues decorated with beautiful gold embellishments and adornments like in Spain and South America. Each item is handcrafted and placed with so much love and devotion.
I feel blessed to have met a wonderful seller on Etsy that she sells some wonderful beautiful antique statues that I could just gaze even thru my monitor.
Her store is MoxieAntiques http://www.etsy.com/shop/MoxieAntiques She has an amazing collection of Antique statues of Our Blessed Mother and St. Therese.
Hope you love them and enjoy them as much as I do.
