Charms and Madonna

Imperfect clay charms waiting to be painted....

and found this big (as in size),  Madonna and all her "chippy" beauty!


  1. OOh...what do you plan on using the charms for? i need to get out and thrift shop, too. I love finding these treasures!

  2. 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 find
    such a good deal $2 :)

  3. 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

  4. 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. :)
