May Crowning

I can't believe that we are half way through the month of May! It seems as though the last few months have flown by and I can hardly recall what we've done! Thank goodness for this blog! I can at least click through my last several months worth of posts and see that we were, in fact, quite busy!

We didn't have (or at least not yet) a May Crowning "celebration", but we did manage to make a few things for our Blessed Mother statue that I wanted to share with you.

Just a few simple beads and some wire!
I know they should actually be made of flowers, but I thought this looked more like a crown.

Isn't she beautiful!  (yes..I realize she has no thumbs....but this statue has been through a lot!)

I found some blue flowers at the craft store that I thought would make a nice wreath.

I used some of the floral foam and just cut the stems off and stuck them in.

I think it looks pretty good!

Nothing is glued on, so I hope it all stays put!

The girls have been singing "Immaculate Mary" in the bathtub over the last few nights....does that count towards a May Crowning celebration???

Hello Nancy, your devotion to our Holy Mother Mary is inspiring! Thank you for taking the time to share with us all. May our Holy Mother Mary take you and all souls into her most Holy womb and form us all into Christ Jesus.
God bless.

Nancy, I think she looks beautiful and I'll bet you all got a smile from our Mother in heaven. God Bless.

that is a beautiful crowning of Mary. and yes, I would definitely say that singing immaculate Mary in the bathtub (anywhere for that matter) is a sort of crowning ceremony.

This is just darling!

I added this to the craft section of the Catholic Gadget toolbar. :)
