Madonna and Child Collection

I collect many, many things. Some of my collections are little, some are growing, and some have had the brakes applied as they may have taken over the house!. I often utilize my collections of lino, buttons and doilies to make my jewellery.
But the Madonna and Child paraphernalia around my place is a collection I really like!

  2. i love the mosaic of images - it's interesting the different styles of images you have collected. collecting is such a fasinating thing. for one of my subjects at uni we all had to give a presentation on a collector (i chose my dad) - i was really interesting to see what people collect and why. some people are really selective and others just collect everything around them (hotel soaps, match boxes etc).

  7. Thanks everyone for your comments.
    I might add I'm not of the catholic faith, but do identify with a mother who loved her son!

  8. Have you seen the book "The Cult of the Virgin: Offerings, Ornaments and Festivals"? (Marie-France Boyer, Thames and Hudson) ... I dip in quite regularly ... I think you'd like it. Dora (Dick & Dora)
