St. Marta

Finaly this weekend I made it back to the Elephant's trunk flea market in New Milford, Connecticut. For the record my husband DID NOT go. He also did not wear a straw cowboy hat and pull a granny cart. Ahem.

I found a few treasures though I felt a lot of the vendors were priced pretty high. I saw blue mason jars with zinc lids for $85 a piece. Yeah, not for me. I'll share the treasures soon as I seem to have misplaced my camera. I really don't like seeing all of the blogs covered in Instagrammed iPhone pictures so I refuse to do that here. One of the reasons I started blogging was to improve my photography. With that said, I adore the convenience of taking a one off shot with my phone and sending it to someone. In this case, to myself:



This is one of my treasures, a chalkware statue of St. Marta (Martha) that I scored for $1.00. At the base is says St. Marta though I believe she is St Martha of Provence. I loved her red and turquoise robes and her "well loved" appearance. If you look at her feet she is standing on a winged monster who I believe is the Tarrasque who St. Martha charmed with hymns and prayers. You go, girl.

More to come on my treasures soon. Stay thrifty my friends.
