Personal Days: Sacred Hearts

When it comes to Christian aesthetics my tastes lean toward the Catholic. Much of what you find in Christian bookstores leaves me cold, but I love vintage Catholic things.

So when I accompany Jana to antique and thrift stores I'm always on the lookout for Catholic pieces. I'm a collector when it comes to vintage rosaries, crucifixes and statues.

Pictured here is my latest find.

We have an antique statue of the the Sacred Heart of Jesus, but I'd never seen a piece that had the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary side by side. This piece was made in 1928 and I got it for a great price.

Can't wait to find it a spot in my office.
