Most of my favorites this week are actually Ray's favorites. Whenever we go to any rummage sales at Churches I have to steer Ray away from religious items, he can't seem to pass them up. Soon I will have to open my own church. Most of these religious articles are now in our dining room and living room.
This first is what I call The Pieta. It's not a depiction of the famous Michelangelo Pieta, but it is the Sorrowful Mother holding her Son after witnessing His Great Sacrifice. It is a very big, very heavy statue. I think it's a beautiful statue.
The next religious article he acquired is this statue of The Sacred Heart. This statue is also very big and very heavy.
He is on a dresser in our dining room.
And another of Ray's purchases is Jesus wearing His Crown of Thorns.
We also have in our dining room a statue of the Blessed Mother. This statue belonged to my grandmother (my Dad's Mom). This statue is much smaller than the others.
And the last of my favorites are two religious art pieces that I bid for and won on ebay. These two little works of art hang in our living room.
This retablo is of The Child Jesus.
And this retablo is of St. John the Baptist as a child.
Saturday ~ Ray's niece is graduating high school next week and her parents are having a party to celebrate the occasion this weekend.
Sunday ~ Happy Father's Day!
I asked Ray what he wanted to do to celebrate and he said his only request was to watch golf (the U.S. Open) on TV! He then offered to barbecue and invite our kids, and his brother and nephew, his sister and her family, and my sister and her husband. So we should have a full house! I hope the weather cooperates!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
