I found Jesus at Matilda's Mouse...

Yesterday while antiquing, I found this beautiful and very worn statue of Jesus.


I just could not leave him there, so now as I write this, he is looking over me. I know it is just a chalkware statue, but it is a nice reminder. I may give him a little work (like a nose job) but for the most part, the years of wear have added a certain subtle reminder of what humanity must do to Him. Thank God, He forgives us.

He is beautiful!!! I'm so glad you got Him. I saw a totally glittered Jesus at Borders before Christmas and I had him in my hands but gave up waiting in line..it was horrible...like a 45 min. line. My DD was with me or I would've waited. My DD just did not "get" why I needed him. But she doesn't "get" my babydoll heads either.

Hey Gina Girl! I'm so glad you found me! You made my day!

It's been a while since Silver Bella...do you think HE had something to do with us getting in touch again???? tee hee

He is beautiful, I am glad He has found a good home with you.

Please do stay in touch...looks like you have been one little creative busy bee. All of your projects are just gorgeous, I love the little Valentine Book! {I need to join some swaps...hopefully we can do one together soon!}

Love your Jesus, his face is so peaceful and your valentine book is so sweet! Inspired me to put my bird ATC book from SB out where I can see it all the time.

So nice meeting you at the Rusty Creek Boutique last weekend. Your blog is adorable and filled with such wonderful creativity. Stop by for a visit to see all the fun I had during my trip down south.

Best wishes,

Oh Sweet Jesus, just love everything about your lucky find! I'd leave Jesus be; that nose gives him character and his Father is the One who gave it to Him, and gave His Son to you...
