The Goddess In You...





Have you ever seen those commercials...you know, the ones that say "celebrate the goddess in you" whether they be advertising razors, feminine products or a new and healthy yogurt. I find it amazing that there are so many goddess' among us ~ especially when I wake up in the morning and take that first dreaded glimpse in the mirror at my "morning hair". Yup, I'm a goddess all right! LOL! (*_*)


I think that the only way there's going to be a goddess in the Stewart household is to bring one in. So imagine my delight the other day when I happened across this lovely goddess statue at my favorite thrift store. I don't find these pretty, vintage statues very often and I wanted the chance to offer it on the web site, but she had a few problems. What a shame ~ I guess I'll have to keep her! She had a large chip on the base that had been glued back on, some shabby wear (which is fine with me) and a bit of a problem with her head...quite the crack at the base of the neck. I decided to give her a home anyway so I adorned her with some pink beads and pretty bling and placed her on one of my pedestals in my front room. She's still adorable in my opinion. Also pictured is another girl statue that I have in the front room. She is decorated with lace, a pretty bauble ornament and a Marie Antoinette paper heart cutout. I love adorning statues with pretty treasures. (*_*)


A little off topic here, but did you know that Stampington is coming out with a special edition book/magazine this spring dedicated to Marie Antoinette? Go to the Stampington web site to order your copy (http://www.stampington.com/). I'm looking forward to receiving mine! Until next time, enjoy the photos and try to make it through the last little bit of January! ~Stacy~ xo

What a beautiful statue. I also love to read about Marie Antoinette. We don't live too far from Asylum where she was to escape to before the revolution. Thank you for sharing!
Love, Marilyn
