Love your set-up!

In the bottom picture of Our Lady of Guadelupe, is that one piece or is it a separate frame with the OLG icon in it? Also, where did you buy it? I want one!

While we bought it as one piece, I think the picture could be removed from the wooden frame.

We bought it down in Nuevo Progreso, Mexico.

In Christ,

I agree! OLG is stunning. I just have a little statue but would love to have a large icon image of Her like that.

You have a very beautiful collection! SOme really amazing icons.

SyrianCatholic said...

Thanks, Carolina.
I love your Icon of our Lady of Czestachowa. Can I ask where you found it?

Its a print that Steve bought for me at the National Shrine in DC. In fact Steve bought me over half my altar, the OLPH and Mary Mag.

Thanks, Antonia.
We got them everywhere from E-Bay to the local Catholic gift shop. over 10 years of collecting.

Nice. Very nice.

It's been a while since I posted on this... and with Crescat's lament on the lack of Latin Rite Catholics having more statues on her blog some time ago (with y'all favouring icons), I think I'll have to go back and whip out my camera some...

But very nice.... thanks for sharing.
