Month of May  - Crowning of Mary

 Our Lady, Queen of Heaven 

These photos above are just some of the incredible collections
featured in the book, The Virgin by Marie-France Boyer.

Boyer traveled the world photographing special images,
shrines, statues, and hearts all devoted to our 
Blessed Mother.

I have always been captivated by the image of the Sacred Heart,

I own several but they are all reproductions of antiques and oh, so special to me.

You find a lot of symbols in the Spanish culture and there are always Sacred Hearts to be found.

Most hearts open with a compartment to store your
religious treasures or to tuck in prayer
for the name of a loved one.

When this you see,
think of the love our Lord has for 
you and me.


I stumbled on the solution to my blogger problem.....
I needed to download the Foxfire, Mozilla browser.
Guess I just missed that memo from Blogger.

I plan on joining a few parties, there is lots to catch up on.
I've missed you all and can't wait to see your newest
redo, garden and yummy recipe.
