We visited family in Colorado over spring break and during our time there, we spent an afternoon browsing an antique store a few blocks from where we were staying. There were so many things that were interesting and we had a great time roaming around.
At nearly the last booth, my husband and I were both intrigued by a number of things this vendor had on display. Two items, high on a shelf at the back of the booth, captured my attention - two statues that appeared to be hand carved saints. I loved the simple, yet stately look of these folk art pieces.
I have this test that I use when I see something I like and think I might buy it. I have to leave the item and walk around. If I keep thinking about it, then I know it was more than a passing whim and I go back and pick it up.
Well, these two made the cut. I considered buying just one, but could not bear the thought of separating the pair. I am glad that we brought both home with us. They are now our saints in residence.
