OOh...what do you plan on using the charms for? i need to get out and thrift shop, too. I love finding these treasures!
Hi Gina,I am going to use some of the charms for "moon baby".I have a weakness for Madonna statues lol! So much fun to go thrifting and findsuch a good deal $2 :)
I can't wait to see what or who you adorn with the clay charms. I have some white Madonnas-- that's all I can ever seem to find in the thrift stores. I love yours, how big is she? Oh you are so lucky, what a find! xx
The little charms are intended for moon baby and a "medicine bag". The Madonna is approximately 13", but she is sort of wide and heavy, if that makes sense. One day while thrifting I found a whole selection of items that seemed related, but were separated in the store. There was a Madonna statue along with a Madonna picture and a large Sacred Heart picture of Jesus and lastly a hand stitched hand carved wooden frame with words "let today be a good day" hand stitched. I gathered up all my treasures and brought them home...I sensed they all belonged to an older woman and that she was smiling because I had found them and would appreciate them. :)
