"Love this angel!"

This angel by Jose Canil Ramos is just beautiful! The pictures don't even do it justice. It was packed very well and arrived in perfect shape. I am so pleased that I treated myself and ordered it!

I love ""Paxot Holy Family"" for the beauty of the painting of the figures. It is a centrepiece at Christmas.

I adore my St. Francis Statue. I have it displayed in my work office and several people have commented on it. One way to gently share faith. Thank you.
