Coup de Coeur

I saw her from a long way away, and it was love at first sight. She was destined to come home with me. Such a beautiful face, so serene yet compassionate. She stands over half a metre tall. She put a smile on my face as soon as I held her, and the smile is still there. My beautiful Vierge -

I can display sweet French rosaries on her, like this shimmery glass pearl one -

And because this made me so happy, I am adding another couple of bits to the weekend giveaway, 2metres of this gorgeous metallic gold and copper trim which I found today, and a vintage French postcard of a family group -

Happy Sunday! Toodlepip xxx

A very special treasure. Such a peaceful face, and a great way for you to display lovely rosaries. I can totally understand how you had to take her home. A great Sunday post. Enjoy the BVM and the special day.
