A lovely 3-piece frame for 2 euros
I really doubt it's vintage... but it was cute anyway!
An Infant Jesus of Prague statue - in pretty poor condition- for 4.50 euros
I absolutely LOVE Religious icons and statues...
Some of my friends think I'm a weirdo for collecting them, but I really can't help it, I have to have them all!
A few months ago, I saw in the window of my favorite charity shop, a nice and tall statue of the Virgin Mary.
Mint condition, bright colors, soft features on her face.... she was SO perfect!
I entered and asked for the price (40 euros) , but then the lady told me it wasn't on sale until the next friday morning, 9am... I know these icons are really sought after and so I had to decide on how I could manage to get my hand on it the D day!
Actually on that very friday well, I had to give a class at 9am... The only way for me to own the precious (Am I allowed to talk about her like that?!) was to ask my man to do something for me... like arriving late in work just to get it...
And adorable as he is.... he did it.
He nearly had an argument with a guy who also wanted it but grabed it so quickly and hold on to it so ferociously in the shop nobody could have ever put a finger on it...
Now Mary has a pride of place in front of the window- and I can't get enough of her... unlike my man.
