W*H*I*T*E WEDNESDAY!*!*!

One of the things that pulls at my "heart-strings", is a  LoVe of ViNtaGe Items "with a B*I*R*D*I*E Motif...    Since becoming addicted to JEANNE d' ARC LIVING MAGAZINE, I'm gradually becoming more and more attracted to "Religious" Adornments - especially if they have a ChiPPy Paint Loss Patina... and this one has a B*I*R*D... 

Adorable Small W*H*I*T*E Statue of the
Virgin Mary ~ Holding the Sweetest little Birdie!*!*!




Although this darling statue - isn't ChiPPy, 
**Its White, It's Vintage, & has a Birdie**
I would think it's quite unusual to find the Virgin Mary - HOLDING A BIRD...  



An old rosary adorns the statue... 
Soooo Jeanne d' Arc Inspired!*!*!

  6. It is not uncommon to have Mary with a bird, it is a dove which represents the Holy Spirit
    Thanks

  7. The dove is also commonly used to express Her message of Peace on Earth
