Saint and Sinner

Do you guys remember my post featuring this thrift store purchase? I was so excited to find them in the store, that I practically ran over to the shelf where they were sitting...;)



Well, after much love and time, they now look like this:




These lovely ladies are candle holders, and I think they would be quite the altar or table display! I hand sculpted their details with Paperclay (the best invention ever!). The horns, flames, golden crown, and cross are all additions that I crafted. Just a quick post today, I must get back to working on my projects (using power tools, always a fun time)!

Oh my goodness! Those are amazing!! Wow, I always love the new life you give to all your thrift finds, but these two guys are truly something special!

So far, no news from my lil puppy and I'm taking a week off blogging, I haven't been too motivated as of late.

Have a great week, Leila, and thank you so much for your concern!
